Introduce Yourself

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. 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.

in Phnom Penh Tuk Tuks are reasonable, and good to get a regular guy
Those Baja style tuk tuks and Taxis working for firms have become far cheaper now than regular tuk tuks, especially if you use an app.
aye thats true, need to get some of their numbers tbh

in Sihanoukville its a smaller place but Tuk Tuks will try and rip you off no end, unless you find a decent regular
Aren't the tuk-tuk drivers in SNV "unionised" now?

I personally haven't used the app yet (for obvious reasons) but a lot of the homestay tenants use them and it seems pretty impressive - you can see where you driver is on their way to your place, and know exactly when they're at the door, and the prices are way, way better than street-side fares. The boys on the side of the road are going to have to do a bit more than get drunk by 9am and play cards all day, interspersed with sleeping it off in the back of the wagon, to attract business.

Hi all

Jasper checking in

I've been skulking around for a while now, deciding whether to plump for CEO or 440.

As 440 seems to have more than its fair share of aggressive reactionists, trolls and fucktards, and I really can't be arsed looking at most of the pig-shit brain-rot they post and things seem to be a lot more friendly here, I'll stick with you guys.

I'm a long-time nomad, having lived in China for three years, Thailand for a couple of years, Ibiza for 11 years, Phnom Penh for a year and a few other places here and there.
And no, before you ask, I am not a massive drug baron on the run. Those charges were never proven. :wink:

I've been living in Malaga for nine months, but I can't do another cold European winter (i.e anything under 20 degC) so I'll be arriving in SKV on November 1st with the intention of staying around for at least a year.
I had a quick sniff around there for a few weeks a couple of years ago, so I thought I'd pop back and see for myself how much of a change the Chinese have really made.
The first two guest houses I booked with both cancelled on me because they'd been sold for development, so I guess things have already changed quite a lot!

Providing yet another doesn't get sold off, I'm booked into a GH until mid-November, so during my stay there I'll be trawling the streets looking for an apartment to rent.
If anyone has any contacts or pro tips on where to look online or anywhere else, then please let me know. I'd really appreciate it....especially if it involves telling agents to go fuck themselves.

Much as I enjoy lying on the beach, I've got a couple of businesses I can run online from anywhere with a decent internet connection, so they'll keep me from sitting on a bar stool for 12 hours a day. Maybe. Fingers crossed.

Hope to meet some of you out and about during what is certain to be one of my very, very infrequent bar visits. :chin:

Hi CEO members,

Name's Jonathan and from the states (please forgive me, I didn't vote for Trump)...

Wife and I are most likely moving to PP for a few years at the beginning of the year.

We operate a manufacturing and distribution business that sources from Chinese and Indian suppliers and thought Cambodia might be a good central point as we enjoy living abroad and need to be closer to our suppliers. Was in South Korea for five years as well.

I'm 42 but my wife says I have the mental capacity of a 12-year old (apologies to 12-year olds), the vocabulary of a sailor and a not so much a drinking problem, but the quitting that is the hardest.

Hoping everyone is enjoying life in Cambodia.
