Phnom Penh Central Market2(金邊中央市場), Cambodia
Cambodia

Phnom Penh's Central Market is a "must-see" for tourists to Cambodia's capital. It was built in 1937 when Cambodia was still under French colonial rule. The vast central dome, its 45-metre diameter, painted yellow, has been an icon of the capital city ever since. This French-designed steel and concrete structure is best pictured from above: think of a domed central hall with four giant arms protruding at right angles from it. There are more than 3,000 merchants in this market. Tourists and locals alike a vast array of products - from fruit and vegetables to meat and rice, clothes, pirated DVDs, books, stationery, electronics, and tourist trinkets to name a few.

金邊中央市場是遊客必看的景點,這座圓拱型法式建築建於1937年,當時柬埔寨仍是法國的殖民地,圓拱高度45米,全座建築漆上蛋黃色,有4條通道,從高空看,好像4條展開的手臂,逾3000小販每天在這裡營生,遊客及當地市民都喜歡到這裡蹓躂,他們可以買到日常用品、餸菜、衣物、翻版影碟、珠寶手表、電器等等物品。

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
