While tourists usually frequent it to hunt for souvenirs, locals coming for its wide range of ingredients, used in the traditional Cambodian cuisine.
Looking chaotic at first, you will find out that there is a structure in the layout of the shops once you go inside. At one side you will see an impressive melting-pot of food stalls. Next you have the clothes section and then the gold shops.
