I have been here for almost two months now and realised that ripping off barangs (foreigners) is a norm here... especially so in the local markets where there are no prices listed on goods...

What are fair prices for most common goods in Cambodian markets?

  • Although useful now, I fear this question won't be that useful in the future when prices change. Seems to me like a classic case of a price shopping question.

  • @JoErNanO Hi, what could change is dollar to ryel ratio... local prices might, but unlikely to change all at once... and they can always be updated. Alternative of not having anything at all and get ripped off seems unnecessary... this at least indicates approximate price... I have paid 3$ for kg of mangos... and would prefer that others wouldn't have to... Apr 22 '17 at 11:55
