Olympic Market
Called "Psar Olympic" in Khmer, the Olympic Market was built in 1994 and is a local favorite with shoppers looking for wholesale fabrics, day wear, religious paraphernalia, accessories, shoes and traditional Khmer dresses. Buyers can look forward to big discounts in this market especially if they are buying in bulk. The market is well laid out and is one of the more modern multi-story market complexes in Phom Penh. Buyer should definitely give this market a visit. 

Russian Market
Called "Psar Toul Tom Poung" in Khmer, the market got its name because of its popularity with Russian expats during the Vietnamese occupation in the 1980s. Real designer clothes at huge discounts are found here. A lot of the factories for Levis, CK, Ralph Lauren and many others are in Phnom Penh. Designer clothes sold at the Russian Market are deemed unfit for export by the factories due to small faults in the clothing, which most would not notice. Beyond the designer clothes are souvenirs, jewellery, gold, silk, woodcarvings, bags and shoes. You can also purchase fake Swiss watches and pirated software at low prices.

Sorya Mall
Located on Street 63 (close to the corner with Street 154), Sorya Mall is Phnom Penh's main Western-style mall but rather drab by Western standards. This 5-floor mall is equipped with air-conditioning, passenger lifts and escalators.
