Phnom Penh's Phsar Thom Thmei also known as Phnom Penh Central Market, is a large market constructed in 1937 in the shape of a dome with four arms branching out into vast hallways with countless stalls of goods. When it first opened in 1937, it was said to be the biggest market in Asia, and today it still operates as a market. The four wings of this gigantic yellow-coloured dome, Phsar Thom Thmei, are teeming with numerous stalls that sell goods ranging from gold and silver, antique coins, money exchange, men's and women's apparel, clocks, books, flowers, food, fabrics, shoes, souvenirs, fish, seafood, dessert, luggage, and countless other products. This unique Art Deco building is a Phnom Penh landmark.
