take your time finding what you need...it is here.
Several sets of replacement blades for your razor. The local knockoffs are worth shit.
A facecloth. You won’t find them in budget hotels & guesthouses.
A hand mirror. Many times you’ll find there’s no hot water at the sink, only in the shower.
I always bring a jar of cocktail sauce. Can’t get it locally and there’s a lot of great prawn served tho with nasty dipping sauces imo.
A portable luggage scale if you plan to do some traveling. Always helps to know how much you’re carrying when booking airline tickets.
A tube of decent heavy duty sunblock.
A big supply of your favorite vitamins & a pack of Sudafed (non-drowsy).
Swiss Army knife or leatherman with bottle opener.
she knew only what had been told her

When i was boy i learned everything i need to know about living in Cambodia
Smile relax and enjoy. You can find almost anything these days. Supermarkets like Thai Hout have a large selection of foreign treats as well as the new large Angkor Market on Airport Road in Siem Reap> You will love your decision down the road. As with most travel, watch your wallet /phone.HappyChappy wrote: ↑Wed Nov 27, 2019 10:55 pm WELL!! After 3 pain staking years of planning I am finally embarking on the new chapter of my life, Cambodia awaits.
I’m booking my flight for late December / early Jan, I have a few grand in the bank, health insurance and a “reasonable” understanding of the Visa process……
My question is, what are items you would consider HARD to get in Cambodia and worth packing??? I have a laptop to work from, clothes (so not to get charged with indecent exposure) and my passport. Any other requirements I have I’m expecting I can just get in country…
Did anything flag itself as hard to source once you landed in the “kingdom of wonder”?
The visa you enter with may not be convertible to a long term visa or retirement visa. If just tourist check out https://www.evisa.gov.kh
for safe and reliable government visa web site.

There is no such thing as Trading Standards here either so no refund or money back. You pays your money and takes your chance...
If you are bringing decent Kitchen knives then bring a decent sharpener. The ones at the market here are rubbish. You can get them sharpened by some old bloke at the market but that's a pain in the ass.
A spare liver could be useful too.

You could probably pick up one of those in SHV though.
