    You'll probably find something
    There is a lot of everything to find. We got very good prices on souvenirs such as T-shirts, a krama, earrings, stuff like that. But when we needed a piece of luggage as ours broke, we found the prices quite steep, while the sellers insisted it was an original of some fancy brand. Yeah... no. A mixed experience, but worth checking out for souvenirs. The sellers are not overly insistent so you can walk and look in peace for the most part.

    The real deal away from the tourist meccas
    Every Asian city has their busy markets where locals offer food and wares to all who stumble through, but the Russian Market in PP seems to be geared far more to those 'in the know'. A patchwork roof spanning an entire city block covers stalls that hold every conceivable bit of tat you could think of. From off-brand clothing to homewares to motorcycle parts to your daily fresh groceries, this space has it all and is where the locals come to get it. Some stall holders are happy to bargain their prices, especially if you choose to buy multiple items, but quite a few will stand firm on prices. This is largely due to the rents placed on each stall, which can be a challenge if niche items are sold. Prepare to have a crack, but don't be disappointed if your efforts are flatly knocked back. The centre of the rabbit warren has an amazing little eatery where stall holders will compete to offer you a seat, however know that quite a few of them work together to ensure everyone is equally catered for and looked after. My group had lunch here one day and enjoyed the experience and banter so much we returned for breakfast the next. It's very easy to get good coffee and fresh juice, as well as some truly authentic cuisine here. If you're looking for an authentic Cambodian interaction, skip the Old Market and head here instead. It's everything there and so much more, and just *feels better*.

    Not too clean
    It is your typical Asian large market with sections for clothes, meats, fruits and vegetables, cloth, etc. The only unique part of it was it had a section for vehicle parts whcih I found kind of cool. Inside, it's stuffy and there's water on the floor in the meat market. It's a cool experience if you've never been to this kind of market before, but definitely not the nicest market we've been to.

This market did seem to group by product. We found the items here more interesting and better quality then the Central Market. They did have a large hardware component that we gave a miss. There are food stalls at the back and a food market as well. It was interesting for about 45 minutes

A massive market with lots of stuff and cheap knock-offs but mostly much of a muchness once you've walked a few isles. Still quite the experience if you have time, and a good place to buy small souveniers, although not a must see - especially if you've already been to other markets in Vietnam. Great for people watching and photography. Super hot inside! Fresh food section can be a bit confronting for first timers - requires a strong stomach in places.
