Shopping for Bargains at the Russian Market

As factories for big-name Western brands such as Levi’s, Calvin Klein, and Ralph Lauren are located in Phnom Penh, the stock that’s deemed unfit to be shipped abroad due to some flaw is then sold at the Russian Market. Stick to the eastern side of the market for clothing; the northern side sells a utilitarian mix of tools and household goods, while the other two sides are a mixture of jewelry and watches, antiques and not-so-antiques, pirated videos, and various crafts.
