There’re still multitudes of shopping options available here in Siem Reap. Another interesting thing that I found out is (Original) Apple Products seem to be cheaper here than in other places in Southeast Asia. Itouch is at $229 which is the same prices as in US.

You’ll also find a lot of bags, shoes and other leather goods made of crocodile skin. Crocodile farming seems to be an industry here in Cambodia. Our guide mentioned that a lot of families are raising crocodiles for export to other countries.

Gemstones seem to be also abundant here but I do not really know how to tell a fake from the real ones.

There’s a lot of books about Cambodian Literature but be careful of fake books, some are badly photocopied and almost unreadable.

Enjoy shopping in Siem Reap. πŸ™‚

    Those gems used to sell for US$5 a handful. Loose stones. Till they realized there’s more money to be had by settting them and selling as a set–paired earrings + ring+ pendant, etc. In 2010! I spent us$60 for 8 sets! Ladies, they also have nice silk dresses that are cheaper than in Thailand.

  5. I bought way too many t-shirts in Siem Reap.

  6. I remember what I bought in Siem Reap. I got a hand carved sandstone wall-hanging of the Bayon faces. I still have it hanging on my wall in fact.

  7. I am so happy for this Flip! I wanna get those scarves and then those mask. Like u have any idea how much will it cost me?
