Are there still cheap rooms available in Sihanoukville?

Not been to Sihanoukville since the Chinese invasion.

Can you still find any rooms available around the 150p/m range for no frills room?

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.

Probably. The front yard could be used as a restaurant.

Otres or Serendipity but seriously forget Snookie ruined by changes, and hit the Islands instead.
Better hip beach days on Ko Rong!

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.

That is where the pump out trucks formerly dumped the sewage from cesspits.

I think there are tents available on the beach for reasonable prices!
