"The Otres Market is every Saturday night in a place called The Barn. Itís full of great people, live music, delicious food and shopping with everything from art to clothing. Thereís also a fire spinning show most Saturdays. It kicks off at sunset and goes well into the wee hours of the night. We had no idea it was happening until the manager of Indigo asked if we wanted to tag along. Iím glad he did because we were starting to feel a little bored."
Sihanoukville town had two traditional Cambodian markets, Phsar Pinichicom, a small market catering almost exclusively for all the local needs, and the main market, Phsar Leu (Upper Market). This is the largest and oldest traditional-style market in town.
Both markets open and close with the sun. Phsar Leu is located downtown on 7 Makara St., 200 meters off of Ekareach. This is the main street in town and runs all the way from Victory Hill to the Golden Lions, where it splits off into three roads that run parallel to Ochheuteal Beach.
P'sa Leu (Upper Market) is the largest traditional in town. If you are a foodie, you wonít want to miss this market. You can taste all kinds of local food at a very low price. Fried insect, a traditional snack, is very popular here among locals. If, however, you want to try anything new, itíll be entirely up to you what you choose.
Strolling around the market and talking with locals will make you feel you are in the real Cambodia.
When people refer to Ďthe marketí, they mean this one - a newly constructed, dimly lit, roofed expanse of booths and stalls vending everything from fresh meat and vegetables to clothing, auto parts, jewelry, etc.
