Shopping in Siem Reap is MAD and like everything else about Cambodia, not for the faint-hearted. Especially at the markets. An accidental glance in the direction of a stall elicits a barrage of "You buy! You buy! I have more colour!" and a face like a smacked bottom when you politely decline. Rogue (http://roguecambodia.com/) is a huge relief. It's a little shop with a sign at the door that states that this is not a market so please don't bargain. The clothing is clearly priced and (mercifully) you are completely ignored unless you ask for help or want to pay. I found a top for myself and T-shirt large enough to fit my six foot four brother, both very styley, reasonably priced and actually made in Cambodia. It's conveniently situated close to Pub Street, just around the corner from the Angkor Wat? bar
