After a trip to Cambodia, you should treat yourself to a red and white checkered krama as well as other items of clothing. You can also offer jewellery to our friends, by checking its quality. Palace side, you can buy Kampot pepper at low prices and little round baskets to cook sticky rice in. And, of course, you can buy Buddha statuettes!
