Central Market
The Central Market is a large market constructed in 1937 in the shape of a dome with four arms branching out into vast hallways with countless stalls of goods. Initial designed by Jean Desbois (1891 Cherbourg -1971 Lorient). Construction works were supervised by French architect Louis Chauchon (1875 - 1945 Saigon) and the ingénue Wladimir Kandaouroff. It is located in Cambodia's capital city, Phnom Penh. When it first opened in 1937, it was said to be the biggest market in Asia; today it still operates as a market. From 2009 to 2011, it underwent a US$4.2 million renovation funded by the French Development Agency. The unique Art Deco building is a Phnom Penh landmark. Before 1935, the area was a lake that received runoff during the rainy season. The lake was drained and construction began in 1935. Since its completion in 1937, wet season flooding around the market has remained a problem and is vestigial evidence of the old lake. The entrance to the market is lined with souvenir merchants hawking everything from T-shirts and postcards to silver curios and kramas. Inside is a dazzling display of jewels and gold. Electronic goods, stationery, secondhand clothes and flowers are also sold. During the Franco-Thai war the market was bombed heavily by Thai aircraft, causing heavy damage, and it had to be temporarily closed. After the end of World War II the market was rebuilt in the modern style.

Our guide was amazing, he was very knowledgeable about everything and went out of his way to answer our questions and make the most of the day. Unfortunately due to rain we didn’t get to do the river boat, however was still worth the tour!

The driver was also very friendly and a safe driver.
Highly Recommend

My partner and I are so glad we did this on our first day in Phnom Penh. It was the perfect way to see the city, learn about Cambodian history, it’s culture, and it’s delicious food. Our tour guide and driver were SO accomodating, letting us visit shops we were interested in and even taking us to the pharmacy after a nasty jellyfish sting my partner got in Vietnam
Great day in PNH
