Why Olympic Market is special ?
The Olympic Market Phnom Penh (in Khmer called Psah Olympic) was built back in 1962. This is a three-story market near the Olympic Stadium, and features mostly wholesale goods. For this reason, it is popular with local residents buying in bulk. They have fabrics, clothes, religious items, and traditional Khmer dresses. Buyers can perhaps find big discounts, and the market is worth a visit.
The surroundings of the Phnom Penh Olympic Market are very busy and the entrance is often blocked by tuk-tuks and motodups. In the outer region of the market are many shops located, selling Cambodian delicacies. Once you are inside the Olympic Market the bustle is very hectic and the corridors are rather narrow.
