Ready to kill the next vendor who says "Sir, you buy trouser"? That's okay, we've all been there, too, and help is at hand. If you're in desperate need of a shot of crass western consumerism, try one of these places.

The day the vegetarians didn't have to ditch the dumplings

t's never easy being a vegetarian in a foreign country. Even if you learn to say "Knom ot che nam sach tee" in your first week, the concept of avoiding meat (and especially fish!) sometimes require a little explanation. Fortunately, Phnom Penh's range of restaurants means that the meat-phobic among us can still have a social life and enjoy some of the amazing food that this country has to offer (just don't try to ask whether anything is made out of fish sauce... it's just easier to be in denial until you get home).

Off-road motor biking

Know your capabilities. Know your limits. Know the market.
What do you want it for?

If it's around town - swallow your pride and get a small scooter. If it's off roading in the provinces - it's a dirt bike.

If you are going for a popular item like an AX-1 or a small scooter- expect that it will be stolen. Reason is these are closer to the ground than the slightly larger other off road motorbikes.
