When it comes to shopping in town, Psar Chaa is well stocked with anything you may want to buy, and lots that you don’t. Silverware, silk, wood carvings, stone carvings, Buddhas, paintings, rubbings, notes and coins, T-shirts, table mats…the list goes on. There are bargains to be had if you haggle patiently and humorously.
Avoid buying old stone carvings that vendors claim are from Angkor. Whether or not they are real, buying these artefacts serves only to encourage their plunder and they will usually be confiscated by customs.
