I didn't shop much. I didn't even purchase any baggage allowance (naik AA kan) . Bags are cheap over there. I bought 2 laptop bags (9 usd each) and a 5L knapsack (usd11). Cheaper than in HCM, I guess. All were of good quality - AAA, I presume...hehe.... i also bought some packets of local spices..hehe...nk masak la kunon... went to HRC and bought a T.
My friend found out the price at new market was slightly cheaper than the old n night market. Ie: the bag was originally usd9 at the new market compared to old market which started the price with usd15 n u hve to bargain n bargain. My friends bought silk mcm Thai silk tu for USD10 per 4metres.
Another tip: souvenirs at Lara Croft's tree (Ta Phrom) are much much much cheaper than the markets. Ie: 3 FMs and 5 nail clippers cost u Usd1. Flute with nice mat casing is also usd1. 2 table runners for the price of usd7 compared to usd5 each at the markets and the list goes on.
|3 for USD1|
All in all my trip to Siem Reap was 90% success. The 10% goes to not having to watch most of the shows at the cultural village due to heavy rain. Apart from that, everything went well. A special thanks to JM for all the input that she had poured be4 my trip..hehe...tq JM ~THE END ~
