Swimwear in Russian Market (Psar Tuol Tompong)


Shopping in Phnom Penh / Sunday, July 4th, 2010

Yesterday, we were supposed to be looking for some new tv stands after visiting a travel agency to make travel arrangements, but we ended up just driving around, then going to the supermarket then piling up on pastries. Ugh, really really bad for me but Hi-ace was on his element trying {and totally succeeding} to make me eat some calorie laden muffins and doughnuts.

Since the shopping trip was postponed yesterday, I decided to go this morning not for tv stands though since I prefer to have Hi-ace when I buy that, and since he’s in Takeo province today, it was just me doing a bit of shopping in where else but Russian Market (Psar Tuol Tompong). I didn’t really have a clue what to buy and I was thinking of buying a pair of sandals but I didn’t like what I was in the stalls. I ended up wandering about the market when one seller called me. I remembered she lives a few doors down from my mother-in-law’s flat and she asked me to have a look at the new things she’s selling..

My, my! Really nice swimwear and lingerie, which is really hard to find around Phnom Penh. I bought a few Merona tankini’s to give to my friends and some Gap bra’s (and no they are not fake, all authentic!!). How much? $6 for the tankini’s and $5 for a lacy bra in nude color. All a steal with those prices considering that Merona tankini’s retails from $15 – $40..

Here’s some swimwear in Russian Market I bought:

She has this really small shop and I tend to overlook it with all the other shops crammed about the market but it was a great find! She has a lot of branded lingerie, bikinis, swimwear, sleepwear and tank tops. And she gives a fair price too and is not really scary to bargain with.

Several stalls down I also bought a sexy little tankini for Chinks for only $3..

  1. Hi Lui, I dont really have time to go around Phnom Penh as we work 6 days a week.  Do you know where we can find some winter boots?  I have seen a couple of designs at W-Export but they disappeared (were bought) right away and do not have much flexibility with the sizes.   Appreciate your advice on this.  Thanks

  2. Do you still live in Cambodia?
    I am here for 10 days and i am in need of a swimming suit before i go to Vietnam. Could you please direct me where i could locate one in Phnom Penh, Thank you! Kathryn 🙂
