Facebook is currently Cambodia’s most favorite site among young teenagers. By naming an entertainment club after the site is quite interesting. Time to play Facebook and sing Facebook!

For some of the greatest gadgets you’ve been longing for: Amazon’s Kindle ereader and Nexus 7 tablet.
So you’re going to spend your Christmas holiday in Cambodia’s Phnom Penh. The city today has been transformed so much that you won’t have to fly to Thailand’s Bangkok to do your holiday shopping. On Phnom Penh boulevards, you can see huge ads display of products like Samsung and Sony. In this blog post, Cambopedia is going to provide you a number of websites of local shops where you can browse a range of electronic products and cool gadgets as well as to check or compare prices.
For Apple users
iOne is Cambodia’s largest store for Apple products. All things Apple. There are at least 6 stores operating in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. iOne also runs an Apple Authorized Service Provider. What you can find: Apple iPhone 5, Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display, the new iPad, iPod touch, MacBook Air laptops, iMac, Mac mini and Apple TV.
Mtesh (chili) has a wider range of products, not just only Apple products and accessories. It’s an all-in-one store where you can find Apple, Samsung, HTC mobile devices and tablets and home appliances. The store sells only 100% manufacturer warranty products.
Shopping for smart phones
You can visit local shops like Hakse, Sokly and Apsara Mobile. The good thing is you can have an idea of the price tag before setting your foot into the shop for negotiation. You might save a few bucks. Although these local shops are not Apple retailers, but they so offer Apple products. These shops have more brands like Sony, HTC, LG, Nokia, you name it. You can find rare tablets like Google’s Android-powered Nexus 7.
