How to Get To Phsar Leu Market?

There are 2 types of transportations to get to Phsar Leu Market; you can either go via motorcycle taxis / moto-dup or tuk-tuk rickshaws / moto-ramork. Moto-dup is quite popular in Cambodia and can be found virtually any place where tourists stay and go.

Moto-dup

If you have a group of people with you then moto-dup is not so convenient. Go for the tuk-tuk rickshaws / moto-ramork instead. Like most places in Cambodia, drivers will expect to be paid in dollars, although the Cambodian Riel is also accepted. Trips generally start at $1.00 and go up the further you need to be taken.

Another way is of course, the option to rent a motorbike or car during your stay. This is the way to go should you prefer to go about town at your own pace, or visit places where taxis normally do not wait.
