TBJ TRAVELS CAMBODIA 3: Shopping In Cambodia + Travel Guide + Itinerary + Travel Cost
Laminated posters for sale at Pub street
If you're thinking of brand and luxury shopping, Siem Reap, Cambodia isn't the place to be, but if you're up for some of the most unique finds and spices, then you should make this city your next destination. I'm going to take you around Siem Reap for shopping!
This is a random post and I'll must about my awesome finds and recommendations as we go along.
Of course I had to look for new beauty finds! Most of the beauty drugstores and supermarkets in Siem Reap feature pretty much the same brands that you'll find in Bangkok such as Bioderma, La Roche Posay, Avene, etc.; here's an interesting find, Bodia, an all- natural bath, body, and aromatherapy range that is proudly Cambodian.
For the shopping areas, the most popular are Angkor Night Market, Siem Reap Art Center, and Old Market; these markets are located within the same vicinity and they pretty much overlap each so it doesn't matter where you go; these markets are walkable from Pub Street.
Random cool find at Old Market: Aphrodisiacs! These wines have preserved cobras and scorpions in them as it is believed that they bring power and energy. Anyone dares to try these? :)
Siem Reap Art Center is one of the biggest shopping areas, just right across Pub Street; if you're looking for Cambodian fashion, jewelry, and bag finds, this is the place to be. I like this market because it's well lit and cleaner.
Here are some cool finds from Siem Reap Art Center:
Gorgeous Kaftans and robes.
These are my hauls:
Bought these spices for our household and friends. I dub these my best buys from Siem Reap! #BecomingATita.
I purchased Bodia Rice Scrub and SK-II at the airport; the latter is not the essence, it's just the toner, but contains pretty much the same ingredients as the toner so I thought that it could be a good way to know if it will work on me or not before I make the big purchase.
That's all! Our last day in Cambodia will be all about food; check back for it! :)
