Fresh flowers for sale at Central Market

Phnom Penh has two large markets- the Central Market and the Russian Market. While my taxi driver did not appear to be too keen on the Russian Market, saying it's nothing much and too small and not worth it, he did take me to the "Psah Thom Thmey" or Central Market. It was nearly 2 in the afternoon, and bloody hot, despite which these fresh flower stalls were still open for business, with no shade or water being sprinkled on the fresh blooms. Reminded me of the large flowers market I'd seen in Bangkok in 2002. (Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Apr/ May 2014)
