Are electronics cheaper in Cambodia?
2nd January, 2011
I heard from another tourist that shopping for electronics, such as iPods and iPhones, is cheaper in Cambodia than in the US. I think she mentioned that in Cambodia, there were no taxes on electronic products.
Can anyone confirm if this is true or false? Are there places in Phnom Penh where I should look for cheap electronics? Do I have to watch out for fakes or cheap chinese rip-offs?

The risks of fake ones and getting no valid warranty is a real one. Price difference isn't that huge so the choice is yours to make.
The official (if indeed they are) Apple resellers offer iPhones for "normal" prices. But since I don't know US prices I can't say for sure whether it's a lot cheaper. Certainly not that cheap that your jaw drops and if it does, it's most likely a fake.

The markets pretty much have most things that you could want from clothing to electrical goods to food and hammocks!Don't always pay what they ask for. These places are open to bargaining!!

I would never buy name brand electronics in Cambodia. They are NOT cheaper. The cheapest place I have ever bought name brand electronics is in the states. Check the internet. I have lived in Japan and Thailand and I still got Japanese brands cheaper in the states because we have a different pricing and distribution system. Too many fakes in real boxes in Cambodia to trust buying them.

Ditto what Thomas says. The USA is the cheapest place in the world to buy new models of brand name electronics. You can't beat Wal-Mart
