Staying stocked up
Even the weary traveller will need some toothpaste, new batteries, packet noodles, and the occasional bottle of cheap rum to keep them going at some point.
Fortunately Phnom Penh is awash with convenience store shopping, with a great variety of supermarket, mini mart and specialist store shopping available to you.
Supermarkets vary, with each stocking a slightly different range of products aimed at bringing in customers of certain tastes, whether it be French, British, Australian or other. Mini marts are in abundance with one on almost every street. They are much the same, but the foreign owned ones tend to offer the most familiar products at fair prices.
Originally starting with just one location south of the Russian Market area, they have now branched out further north with two locations now in the heart of the tourist areas. They stock a large range of items which will be familiar to visitors from the US, Australian, and UK. Open 24 hours.
