Sihanoukville: Shopping and Markets


Shopping Markets DVDs/Uploads Stores Books


Sihanoukville is putting on something of a real shopping scene these days. Several shops and souvenir stalls line the road to Serendipity Beach - souvenirs, clothing, crafts, music, NGO shops and more - some places staying open late into the evening. On the more practical side, convenience stores dot the area and there are a couple of small supermarkets downtown, Of special note: the Otres Market - a Saturday market gathering of local crafts and food vendors (in the spirit of the Saturday beach markets of Goa) begins its second year running, located in Otres Village, open Saturday 4PM-late.

 Traditional Markets

Sihanoukville town had two traditional style Cambodian markets, Phsar Pinichicom, a small market catering almost exclusively to local needs, and the main market, Phsar Leu (Upper Market) ,the largest and oldest traditional-style market in town. When people refer to "the market", they mean this one - a dimly lit, roofed expanse of booths and stalls vending everything from fresh meat and vegetables to clothing, auto parts, jewelry, etc. Both traditional markets open and close with the sun.
