Located in the Southern side of Phnom Penh city, Russian Market aka Psah Toul Tom Poung is a bustling bazaar that offers travellers spectacular glimpses of local Cambodians’ livelihoods, comprehensive variety of value-for-money souvenirs and endless photographic opportunities.
The Russian Market was extremely popular amongst the Russian expatriates in the 1980s, hence gaining its apt name. From processed fishes, motorcycle spare parts, knock-off merchandise to even nail parlours, you can find virtually every item and service available here.
When in Cambodia, Psah Toul Tom Poung is a must to visit.
Armed with a handy weather-proof Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8, we boarded a plane with the Panasonic team and embarked on a weekend adventure around the capital of Cambodia.
Cambodia is just a 2-hour flight away, and the historically rich third-world city is a destination in Southeast Asia worth visiting. An exotic experience is almost guaranteed if you visit with an open mind; indeed, we had a great time immersing ourselves into the Khmer culture.
It was surely a fulfilling weekend and we had the special moments all photographed with the all new Lumix DMC-GX8 that shall serve us as happy memories.
