Good shoe shine in Phnom Penh?

Post by PPMan »

I can’t seem to find anyone who will do a really good shoe shine. Dara Shoes did not do good...no different than a street kid that did it for me. Anyone got a suggestion short of shining them myself? :)

Hang around the riverside for 5 minutes. Or just do it yourself FFS.

I haven’t seen a shoe shiner here in years.

Not surprising really as the majority of people wear flip flops/sandals/trainers.
