Central Market (Psah Thmay)

Phnom Phen's most obvious landmark looks more in style with a Star Warstrading post then most earthly structures. Inside the tall dome is a host of goods, from watches, to jewellery, clothing and food. Much of the market's merchandise is the same, so comparing prices to find the real value is advised. One should bargain hard but good-naturedly. Surrounding the structure is a ring of tightly packed vendors selling similar wares. Its central location is walkable from about anywhere but all taxis know 'central market'.

Information & Facts

Neayok Souk, Phnom Penh
Khmer is the official language. French is also spoken, but English is fast becoming popular with the younger generation.

Riel (KHR) is the official currency and is divided into 100 sen. Foreign currency is difficult to exchange with the exception of US Dollars. Most transactions require cash. US dollars and Thai Baht are accepted, although smaller transactions are usually done in riel. A torn US dollar note renders it useless. Credit cards are only accepted in a limited number of tourist-orientated hotels and restaurants in Phnom Penh and larger towns. There are a few ATMs in Phnom Penh, but they shouldn't be relied upon as a source of money; travellers cheques in US dollars or sterling can be cashed at a limited number of banks and larger hotels, though travellers cheques are not recommended due to limited acceptance.
