When I first landed in Phnom Penh, I thought there were no decent stores, all I could see were the small retail shops along the city’s busy streets and of course the famous open Russian Market. My bargaining skills are bad and in Cambodia one has got to be really good at it which is literally frustrating for me. Price tags save time and make my life easier.
My first lesson learnt is, while exploring Phnom Penh one has got to be a little patient and more VIGILANT because rumour has it there are loads of bag snatchers out there. The other day my new Kenyan girlfriend had her Samsung S3 snatched out of her hand in broad daylight. One twisted her hand and the other took the phone, the mission was executed so smoothly she was like “WTH just happened?!” no time to even scream help. If you are Nairobian then you know how it feels to walk or drive along River road. Thats Phnom Penh for you ! Most streets here are exactly like River road.
On a mission to explore this charming country and discover all the hidden treasures and darkest corners, my first stop was BYSI Accessories on street 274. I’m always admiring BYSI display outfits and I have been on pins and needles itching to check out the store. They have an amazing collection of outfits for all ages, different occasions for both day and night. They have an array of brights, nudes, pastels, monochromatic, crazy cute prints….I mean, whatever your style, there is definitely something for everyone. The shop attendants are very sweet, professional and quite helpful. And here goes the best part, they have SALES at the moment.
