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.

been a regular holidayer to the KoW each year the past 5. Generally set up camp in PP and get the Giant Ibis up north and down south. Love the relaxed atmosphere and gets me out of the crappy winter each year!

They say Cambodia is like Thailand was 10 years ago, I hope so!
Whoever said that wasn't in Thailand 10 years ago.
Nah, not true, thais are and have always been overly concerned with getting rich
Khmers are more into a layback lifestyle.

Been here on an off since 2006 and now back again...this place gets addicting. Not loving Phnom Penh much though, I didn't realise how good it was in Siem Reap while I was living there.
How come you're not enjoying PP?
First off I'm living in Toul Kork, purely for the commute, the wife works there and I'm at the airport so it makes the best sense.
I'm not a city person I guess and having to drive short distances that take 20-30 minutes is very frustrating. Yeah yeah, cry me a river, but the past 3 years I've had no commute and easy access to dining and drinking venues, so I've been very spoilt and perhaps having a real-world commute is a hard adjustment.
SR, being walkable and bikeable, just fitted me better I guess.

Hi, im a guy on the wrong side of 50, love visiting SEA countries...of course KAMPUCHEA is my favorite, been to Thailand, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, PI, Viet, India & Lao.
Hoping to find in future tours a place similar to Cambodia for its good points!
Can anyone recommend a country which shares the highlights of Cambodia apart from the countries ive noted here?

Cheers, yes indeed Indo is next on the tour list, i do not want to go to the tourist hotspots such as Bali, but prefer a more relaxed trip away from maddening crowds of other farang, so the more remote or less traveled islands have the allure for us, can you recommend any places like that in Indo?

Off the beaten path in SEA seems exotic but can turn out to be boring.

Nowadays i prefer to have english speaking company, and good food around me.

Indonesia off you beaten path you may well find yourself in a bamboo hut fighting off food poisoning instead if living the indiana jones lifestyle.

You don't see too many white people outside of Bali and Jakarta. I'd recommend Sumatra (Lake Toba, Bukit Lawang, Berastagi, Bukittingi, etc.), Kalimantan, and Sulawesi for starters. Try the Malaku Islands if you really want to go somewhere less travelled.
