Paul P's City Tips

  • Although there is no norm for tipping in restaurants, most places will appreciate around a 10% tip. Likewise for tour guides.
  • Do not use your feet to point at someone. This is considered extremely rude.
  • Always ask for permission before taking photos of Cambodian people, as they can be easily upset by this.
  • You can see a lot of Phnom Penh in a short period of time by hiring a tuk tuk driver. It's very inexpensive and they are very knowledgeable about the local area.

    In a very impressive 1930s art deco building, you can find every type of stall you can imagine, from designer clothes (or knock-offs!) to souvenirs. This is a great place to buy gifts to take back home.

    Tips
    • I don't recommend going in the middle of the day, as it can get very hot.
    • Bartering seems par for the course, and the vendors love the chat if you like a challenge!

    This is a fantastic place to get tailor-made clothes. You will be measured and then have a suit, or any type of clothing, made for you. The quality of work is carried out to a very high standard and the staff are very good at helping to recommend materials and colors.

    Aeon is a modern shopping mall with all the shops you can find at home and more. It's very clean and there are lots of nice places to eat, from European to Chinese to Cambodian food. The mall even boasts a 4DX cinema, a bowling alley, and an ice skating rink.
