Ask us anything. Cambodia Expat's Online has a huge community of long term expats that can answer any question you may have about life in Cambodia. Have some questions you want to ask before you move to Cambodia? Ask them here. Our community can also answer any questions you have about how to find a job or what kind of work is available for expats in Cambodia, whether you're looking for info about Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or anywhere else in the Kingdom. Don't be shy, ask CEO's members anything!
Okay, in order to help, let's try and help you. What are you looking for, my friend? You want drinking buddies, or do you want people to sit and discuss Chaucer with? You want to get high, or not? So you're single, but don't want to "be alone"? You want company for free or are you happy to pay for it? What part of town do you reside (roughly) and how far are you willing to travel? Most importantly, are you a Cheap Charlie?
Once we can clear these small hurdles, Mr. Herk, the members will whittle themselves down to helpers or non-helpers.
NB: PRO TIP - the closer you are to Riverside, the easier it is to find friends

These reoccurring questions about how to meet new friends in a foreign country have always puzzled me.
Do the OPs have no friends back home? Have they never met and formed friendships with new people after moving home, work or when partaking in a new, or even old, hobby?
There is evidence to suggest that social media take some of the blame but seriously, I just don’t get it. Do people really lack the basic social skills connected with meeting/chatting with work colleagues or people you meet?
If they are that introverted one must surely wonder how they came to be so far away from there snug little comfort zone in the first place.

where can one meet people for friendship in pp ? what are the alternatives for singles who didn't come here to be alone ? thank you.
Join Phnom Penh expats on facebook and see what events interest you. Quiz nights are usually good for meeting a range of people, but there are all sorts of hobby groups.
Then go along to the event and talk to people and make some friends.
