This distinctive building is a city landmark - a unique art deco version of a traditional market. Four arms of the market converge in a soaring dome at the hub, perhaps reflecting the four arms of the chaktomuk (the convergence of the Mekong River.) Prior to 1935 the market area was a swamp/lake known as Beng Decho that received the runoff during the rainy season. The lake was drained and the market constructed in 1935-37, during the French colonial period, and originally dubbed the ‘Grand Market.’ Phnom Penh stretches N to S on W side of the confluence of the Tonle Sap & Mekong rivers. The city offers a fascinating cocktail of flavors. The crumbling, colonial architecture & wide boulevard-style roads, give the city a relaxed French feel. This provides a contrasting background to the vibrant Cambodian markets & typically chaotic SE Asian traffic, the roads choked with motos, cyclos and cars. Phnom Penh is the only major city on the banks of the Mekong. Sunset is a good time to visit the riverside area. A multitude of restaurants offer cuisine from all over Asia & Europe.
