Yep. This happened to my dad once. His wife managed to keep his airway open long enough for an ambulance to arrive.

Re: Swedish 23yo, John Alexander Dall (Dahl?) found dead in Sihanoukville guest house

23! Too young. RIP.

Been a notable lull in tourist deaths recently, until the Khmer-Australian guy and this one.

It pissed down in PP last night!
Shower last night in TTP, definitely wasn't pissing down here.
It was here in Orussey, and pretty wet in Daun Penh as well.

Re: Transfering money.

I use a Citibank-AU VIsa to withdraw at Maybank ATMs now. No fees and the exchange rate is good too. Would only use SWIFT if I need to transfer a large amount in a hurry TBH.

Re: Transfering money.

Yes, you can do a SWIFT transfer from CBA. As with all banks here it goes via an intermediary bank who will take maybe 2% depending on the amount transferred. And ABA also takes a cut. So all three banks involved have their hand in your pocket.

She would be insane to appeal the four year sentence. If she does, I bet they will happily double it.

Re: VISA ATM's fees, withdrawall limits.

Maybank has no fee for some Visa cards (they say European ones, but my AU issued Citibank one is also free). $500/day limit.

Re: More silly Questions

Check these Facebook groups for accommodation (I'm assuming you mean PP?). You'll get contacted by guys who will pick you up on their moto and whizz you around a bunch of places in your preferred area. Ask them to negotiate the rent down (they are probably getting a cut anyway). https://www.facebook...
