Living In Cambodia?

Postby Wolfeye » Fri Jun 24, 2016 9:41 am

This is a wild-left from where I normally post about, but how is living in Cambodia? I'm still thinking of Czechia a lot, but I just saw a thing about how cheap living in Cambodia is & how the landscape is supposed to be very beautiful- figured I'd ask, since I didn't see anything about living there. It's mostly the Philippines that get mentioned, I notice.

So how is it there? Any major issues if you're a white guy? I'm somewhat more worried about kidnapping & getting into shit from being white and/or American than I am a lot of the other things. I notice there isn't a whole lot of "savvy" out there about anti-kidnapping & countering police instigation, so I figured I'd ask from people that (hopefully) know from the locals.

On a different note, are the women of the "I'd rather be crying in the back of a limo than happy on the back of a bicycle" type? I really don't get that- it's like "I'd rather eat a full plate of food & be hungry than eat a little bit & be full." I'm curious if they've got curves, too- but the other thing is more important. I'd rather get along well with a woman that's not as ample as I usually go for than miserable with a raven-haired, Hayek-esque, flexible, well... you guys get it.

Dear Wolfeye,

I live on the border of Thailand and Cambodia. If you give a shit about living an sort of luxurious life style Cambodia is not the place for you.
If like being dirty and uncomfortable Cambodia is perfect.
If you are worried about getting into shit stay away from drunk Cambodians. The sober ones are usually nice when you are nice to them.

Cambodia is a nice place to be away from Thailand for a few days, maybe one week, but better in Thailand for long-stay.

Thailand is much better for shopping of anything you might need, all is functioning in general, medical care is not bad either...

Cambodia is easier with visa if you are still under 50 and cannot qualify for retirement. I found Cambodia to be a very friendly place, but it is an empty country, getting boring soon. Not so much to do there, a small country but underpopulated and rather poor, rural areas are really primitive...

Inside Cambodia, it can become surprisingly hot during daytime in these few cities - I remember Battambang, almost impossible to go out during early afternoon.
However there were no street lights, so if you go out after sunset, you had to bring your own flashlight with you.

Most of the places I have been to there, at least outside the major population areas, "if you go out after sunset" best to forget the flashlight and bring your own firearm and wariness. Foreigners are considered always rich and, well, in such a poor place you can figure it out. I tend to think of rural Cambodia as the wild wild east. Can be rough but interesting place if you are adventurist type.

Mr Natural: Thanks for the advice. Is it easy to get a gun over or around there? I'm talking in the broad sense.

This guy has lived in Cambodia and has some blog posts on it. That easy one year visa has made it somewhat enticing to me too.
