The Gift Guide for Most People in Cambodia

It’s this time of the year again that you want to buy some of the best gifts for your family members and friends. This guide will give you gift ideas as well as shops you can buy them in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Sweet Memory Store:
Sometimes on a fine day the best thing to do is curl up with a good book — or every book, as the Kindle lets you do, without the distractions of a tablet. If you have your heart set on the latest Kindle Paperwhite, head over to Sweet Memory Store. Since 2012, the store has been the first choice for those who want to buy the best-selling e-book reader. In addition to Kindle e-readers, you can find some other niche, good gadget products like Chromecast, Google’s most popular streaming device, as well as Raspberry Pi 3 starter kit. Sweet Memory Store also has Sandisk memory cards on sale. You can ask for wrapped gifts (free).

Get a new laptop? MacBook Pro Retina 2015
The latest MacBook Pro Retina 2016 has been released by Apple. However, the latest model hasn’t been well received as its previous model due to no remarkable improvements. It’s too expensive than most MacBook Pro owners can expect. Yet, we recommend MacBook Pro Retina 2015. It’s still one of the best laptop you can buy. The 2015 laptop runs the latest operating system macOS Sierra. You can buy the MacBook Pro Retina at Uniyoung, an Apple’s authorized retailer near the Central Market (Phsa Thmey).

The best smartphone: Apple iPhone 7 vs. Google Pixel vs. Xiaomi Mi MIX
In Phnom Penh, you have a lot of choices when it comes to buying an Apple products, either a MacBook, or an iPad, or an iPhone. The iPhone 7 became available as soon as Apple announced. Early customers can have their hands on the iPhone 7 as long as they’re willing to pay the high price tag. In September, the price for the newest iPhone 7 was between $1,000 to $1,200. However, this Christmas season is probably the perfect time to buy the new iPhone, which has better camera. Check out these three smart phone shops for iPhone 7 prices and order: Sokly Phone ShopHAKSEApsara Electronics. Not an Apple iPhone fan? Then go for Android. Google made its own brandname smartphone, which is called Pixel. It’s been received positive reviews since its official launch in October this year. One of the downside of buying this Google’s flagship smartphone in Cambodia’s Phnom Penh is the price. It’s probably due to the fact that Apple products are more popular than Google gadgets. The Google Pixel XL 32GB is currently priced at $870. Google Pixel is available at Koungy phone shop. At the time of writing this, the Xiaomi’s latest smartphone Mi MIX isn’t available in stock at any shop yet. We’ll update this as soon as we get it.
