How to get to Samudera?

Taxi

At the bus station, the posted taxi fares are about US$6. This is a couple of dollars more than the going rate but the motodup cartel enforces higher prices to keep a lid on competition.

Bicycle

Cycling is a pleasant and environmentally friendly way to get around Sihanoukville. Some guesthouses offer rentals, as do two bookshops, Mister Heinz Books (012 342720; 95 Ekareach St, City Centre; 7.30am-7.30pm), which hires out bikes for US$2 per day, and Q&A (017 802721; 219 Ekareach St, City Centre; 9am-6pm or later).

The biggest range, the biggest prices. Lucky Ocean is closer to the beach and cheaper though.

Samudera's winning point for me was finding the Granny's Kitchen Fresh Yogurt. Yes, it sold in other grocery and supermarkets in SNK-- and all at aslightly higher price. Samudera also has a decent selectoion of choclate, also, as other markets have to some degree-- also at slightly higher prices.Actually, what impressed me the most was the time after I had paid for my items, and then left, forgetting to place the bag in my daypack. It was only the next morning, when I was ready for breakfast, that I realized I had a challenge.... I was due to go into town for a massage at RELAX, so I had my motodup guy stop at Samudera. I was lucky that the same cashier was there.... and as soon as I started to tell her of my plight, she took my hand and led me to the cooler (where the Granny's yogurt is kept), and removed the plastic bag with a note written on it -- forgotten by lady... the note also mentioned that I had bread as well. (thoughtfully, removed from the bag before it was placed in the cooler). The cashier turned me to the bread, and had me pick a fresh baguette.Samudera has a fairly good selection of fruits and veggies-- tho I personally prefer the fresh produce from the town market, Phsar Leu. Also available are those regular necessities-- toiletries, laundry needs, the basic dry goods, and favorites of several different cultures-- from herring to ramen to tamarind to muesli... and of course liquor and wine.Over in a corner is a fresh bakery selection-- baguettes, rye bread, cake and pie slices, croissants, brownies, and cookies. Opposite this is the cooler with the Granny's Yogurt in Plain, Mang, and Pineapple-- as well as Greek Yogurt (wonderfully smooth, rich Quark to me!) and Tatziki. Yum!

I try to do most of my shopping here at the public markets and little stalls. Quality and pirce are the issues, and, let's face it, many of us came to Asia to experience life here as Asians live it. But, like almost all expats, I shop a lot at Samudera, because they do have the best selection of goods that we might regard as staples. And, like almost all expats here, I complain about Samuderรก's (often ridiculously) inflated prices, especially during high tourist season, when prices here are like a banana tree, you can watch them rise as you stand there But, if you don't like prices, you can simply choose not to shop there or not to buy, so that is not the issue I want to discuss here. There are two things that annoy or anger me. The first is, the policy of the store management to not reorder an item until it is completely gone, or all similar items are completely gone. Let me give you some examples. Produce. You can look at the same 12 pieces of bad quality okra or baby corn for a week, and if you ask an employee if they have more"or if they are getting more,, the answer will be, "No, we have it, "and they will take you to look at what is there. Apparently, management does not realize that fresh produce is not like wine; it does not improve with age. Another example. Yogurt. Plain yogurt sells out fast. But they also get in fruited yogurt, which does not sell well. If you want to buy more plain yogurt and they are sold out, but have 2 dozen containers of fruited yogurt left, and you ask an employee about plain yogurt, they will take you to the fridge and say, "No we have it." Now I owned and managed food businesses for 16 years. Guess what I learned in that time. You make money by selling people what they want to buy, not by waiting until they bought things that are not so popular to sell before you would re-offer the popular items. This ain't rocket science. One day we wished to purchase multiple packages of chicken breasts, and there was only one package left in the freezer. We asked if they had more, or were getting more in. Care to guess what the response was?The final thing to mention here is the one that causes anger. Many times, we have brought an item to the check stand to purchase that has a marked price on it, or had a price marked under it on the shelf, and when you get to the reigster, they ring up a different, higher price. They will explain that it has changed, and will not honor the marked price. Usually, this is a matter of 20 or 40 cents, and I curse under my breath and let it slide. But recently, my wife purchased two bottles of wine that were in a section marked "Special,"and were marked down from $9.60 to $4.80. When she got to the register, they charged her $9.60 for each bottle. She showed them the sign saying "Speical,$4.80," and they said, " Oh, that was something else, the special is sold out." They would not honor the special price, and did not take down the sign. My wife had to physically take down the sign and tear it up to prevent them from deceiving other customers.At any rate, never have the words "caveat emptor," let the buyer beware had more resonance.

в маркете есть продукты, спиртное, сигареты, выпечка, фрукты, бытовая химия, сувениры. Даже есть сыр с плесенью (дорблю). Расплачиваетесь как и везде долларами или местной валютой
