Are there still cheap rooms available in Sihanoukville?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Guess I’ll try Battambang.

It might be a good thing going by recent photos.

I have heard of $300 per sqm asking prices, but no confirmed sales. Different parts attract different prices.

I will be very happy if it gets to $400 sqm in the next year.

Capitalist!

Have you thought about the poor locals who couldn’t afford to buy it (even when it was $2 per sq) and are now being made homeless because their squatting area has been sold?

How is my not buying something at a market price going to help them? If I did not buy plenty others would. I do not set the prices, I am bound by market forces.

Not in town, no. A one bed apartment goes for $250 pm now. More expensive than PP.
Bit more than that usually.

BTW, a mate got notice that the rent on his 2 bedroom small house (85sqm) was going up in February from $500pm to $4000pm. He is moving to Klang Leu.
I saw one on facebook for that, what used to be a $70 apt. Where in Kleang Ler?
Klang Leu is the area on the other side of route 4 opposite the brewery, extending down towards Ream direction for a couple of kms. The place you get your work permits is there.

It is where most of the Khmer's and some Barang have moved. Land has gone from $20 to nearly $200sqm in some parts of the area in less than 2 years.
I know where Kleang Ler is, I live there. I was asking where he was moving to.

He is like a Khmer when it comes to locations or directions. So no idea.

If you've got a wall then you can get your soft title to hard. As far as I can tell most people have the soft title, they've already kicked the squatters off the government land next to me. The shop houses an Oknha is selling at the end of my road next to the highway are going to be up for 20-30k each. Two storey, 4x12.
