I don't live in Cambodia, but I do visit once in a while. I live in Singapore. As an expat myself (I'm Australian), the attractive elements of Cambodia would be cheap housing, cheap booze, good food, and a relatively laid-back atmosphere, which goes for Phnom Penh as well.

Clearly, I needed to emote. Here you go! :D
