I go to Psar Angkor in Siem Reap...they have an aisle of pasta.
Lucky has it too.

I am going to put season 4 of Trailor Park Boys in my dvd player in honor of the BRING GOOD WEED COMMENT.
You better bring it in your Man Safe.. ...

Happy New Year...

you named it: iPhones, laptops (not Lenovo, they are not popular here), make-up (if you're knowledgable. my friend's mom makes about $4k from only cosmetics per trip).
I personally would like a good deal on a nice used Lenovo yoga 720 or preferably yoga 730 if you wanted to make a deal.
Still hunting for opium paraphernalia.

Lawry's Seasoned Salt
Miracle Whip
Liquid Smoke

Don't bother with electronics. We can get the Chinese stuff here for almost the same price as you can get it in Canada. And yes, everything is from China. There is nothing actually made in the West. Maybe guns from the USA, but those are illegal. Since you're coming from Canada, how about hockey puks and ice skates? Could get a premium on those occasions when the rink at Aeon Mall is actually open....Warning: Khmer's have small feet.

That's about all I can think of at the moment.

^^^This. There is a shop on E. Hastings in Vancouver. Best edibles I've had. Never slept better in my life. Would give my left testicle for some of those. Sad that you would have to risk life imprisonment for bringing them...

Indoor growing equipment and seeds. Not technically illegal (afaik) but people don't want to order that stuff online and have records of it being delivered to their houses, lest someone suspect they might be growing something other than tomatoes.

Razor Blades, they are expensive here and fake.

Cheese has been mentioned but strong cheddar is not available here, I mean the 3 year old stuff - nothing that can be bent without breaking.

That is actually a good idea. Be specific though...Doc67 is referring to disposable consumer catridges for safety razors. The commercial blades like you use in barber shop for straight razors are not going to get you very much.

A big box of replacement cartridges for Gilette Mach3's could double your money though.

I want to know what I could buy used here and sell in PP to make some extra travel cash. I.e iPhone, laptops. Is there things that bring higher prices in Cambodia?
I think there was similar thread like year ago. But if you know some people here already, who can help you to sell, then expensive brand (like gucci, louis vuitton, channel) perfume, cosmetics, handbags and shoes are the items you might consider to bring with you. One or two hand bags can profit pretty easily $200-$300 and few bottles of brand perfume can profit same. But like said, it's easier if you know someone and preferable someone who has money or rich friends. Anything else is pretty much pointless as the money you can make is so small.
