sounds like a myth
Hard to find a thai to admit to it coz they consider it as anti-nationalistic. Nevertheless this thai, professor of SE asian studies at a US university did just that and says how it is:

I live in Thailand, I've never been to Cambodia, so I am reading this thread with much interest and amusement too. Thanks for all the posts.
I cannot wait for the new thread on '' Screw salesman gets screwed on first trip to Cambodia ''
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

It sounds like it will be a riveting thread. Did he bolt? He'd be nuts not to.

Forget about Thailand and Cambodia. Judging by the picture below, it looks like Malaysia is the place to go if you wanna screw driver.

Thailand; Immigration hassles, every three months to check in like you're on parole and once a year requires a shitload of paperwork.
Baht rising against the dollar.
The generals treat the population like children - booze can be purchased only at certain hours.
Lèse majesté crimes and sentences are outrageous.
Worship of Kings is abhorrent to Americans.....I speak for all of them, LOL.
Absolutely ridiculous silly censorship on Western films shown on Thai TV.
Taxed the Hell out of wine because the Thai beer makers are connected to the Generals.
They brain-wash their children in school to respect authority and never question it (Generals and Royalty are one in the same).
Arguably the most corrupt government on the planet.
Good list of negatives.

I thought about renewing my Thai retirement extension for the 6th time but I just can't face it any more, including now having to report every time I return to the country. (Don't even ask if necessity of reporting return is based on length of period outside Thailand; every officer and district has a different story. ) Here in Vietnam, I just hand over some money and never have to put up with officious bullshit Thai immigrunts.

Not to mention the shocking, world-record road death rate . . . well, could go on and on.

Both places were a lot more fun 10 years ago. Now I choose to stay in Thailand and visit Cambodia. When I left a few years back, people were still talking about having enough money stashed away so that if you had a serious medical problem you could be airlifted to Bangkok. I see a brand new hospital has gone up on the way in from the airport so maybe that's not so much of a problem anymore. The pros & cons seem to be about equal with the exception of the number of nice travel destinations and types of entertainment. Thailand leads in this area.
