Cambodia Shopping

Shopping: Antiques, woodcarvings, papier mâché masks, brass figurines, kramas (checked scarves), material for sarongs and hols, and items and jewelry made of gold, silver and precious stones are Cambodia’s best buys. Visitors are advised that there are strict controls on the export of antiques - and stone carvings in particular. The Central Market, Tuol Tom Pong Market and the Old Market are among the best places for buying jewelry and the Fine Arts School sells many of the above goods in its shop. Clothing and materials are available at the Central Market.
