Central Market :: Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh’s Central Market is a delight to behold when the sunshine warms the art deco dome of this beautifully classic 1930’s engineering accomplishment. Inside all that glitters is not gold but a vast array of almost too colourful gems under the central dome.

Surrounding are steaming khmer soups, lotus packed flower stalls, angry bird t-shirt sellers, a great family who run a kitchen equipment stall who scoured the entire market to get me the matching set of cutlery with a four leaf clover on. A rather rude old khmer woman who I bought nail polish from. Always an inspiration to visit photographically as well as a way to meet the locals I look forward to exploring it and getting to know the people who work there further.
