Have a cold beer or two (cheapest beers in PP)while sitting at California2 and most of the street book sellers that walk past will have this map for sale - all though they only have copies. But they are fine and much cheaper then the originals.

Also say hi to Jim the owner - Great guy and fun to chat about bikes with, where to go, road conditions, etc. Also, many of the local riders will be found here having a drink in the late afternoon and evening.

Cheers,
David and Mai

Went into Monument Books a few days ago; they seem to have had a rush on gecko maps and are sold out! They weren't sure when the next batch will be in but keep your eyes out...

Agree strongly with Harri and buy the real one and support the guys who try to help us getting around the country,it,s only 10 bucks and if sold out at Monument you find them in the Caltex mart stations

Agreed, buy the original & support those who spent the time surveying to provide you with the map in the first place.
Without "them" many of you might have never ridden or found the roads / tracks you needed to know about.
Why be a cheap charlie to save a couple of beers over the real thing and then make life / business less rewarding for those putting in the miles to get you the right info.....next season they might not be around as the copy guys are the ones making all the easy money; you've saved yourself a couple of beers but the original map makers have gone out of business & few others will make the effort to survey & produce the accurate map that you need. Support those those who support you with good maps & info.

Just bought the Gecko Cambodia Map from Monument Books for US$10. Lots in stock.

In PP, you can get it from No 111, Norodom Boulevard.
