Introduce Yourself

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.

Hi guys
Thanks for the add,
I’m considering moving over to Cambodia.
I currently live in Australia but from England.

I’m a carpenter by trade but have owned and worked in bars .

My passion is playing darts and having a beer!

Are there many bars that have Dart boards?

I’m 46 and wanting to know where would suit me best?

Thanks to anyone that takes the time to reply

I spend too much time far away from land; I don't know where I live. I'm sometimes found on the border between Cambodia and Thailand, and even back home in Blighty.

Never been interested in, involved in, or integrated in the "farang" world of Thailand - I have more bule mates in Indonesia. I find the Thai expat lot a bit weird and cranky.

Studied in China, Thailand, and Japan many years ago, and was lucky enough to spend a year abroad studying in Asia that made me want to find a way to escape there.

I'm a sort of specialist engineer and a bit of a language nerd since I was a kid; I kind of always knew I'd wind up where I am. Certainly always wanted to escape the UK.

My interest and involvement with Cambodia has been growing over the years - it was the place I enjoyed most when I visited as a student nearly 20 years ago.

Over the years I've been working laying foundations for a smart business that leads to a life on land in the Far East, SEAsia, and maybe with a base in Cambodia.
I'm not like other boys...

hi everyone, I am a 34-year-old Italian man, I spend some time studying Cambodian culture and the country, next year I will be able to retire from work and I intend to make a series of trips to South East Asia, to live and document the reality of this beautiful part of the world, I am a man in a wheelchair and I intend to open a blog and write a guide on how to deal with travel in certain countries for those with mobility difficulties.
thanks

You will find Cambodian very helpful and sympathetic to your mobility needs. The architecture may be a challenge.

My name is Matt and I'm from Arkansas in the USA. I am hoping to find English teaching work in Phnom Penh to begin in the next couple of months. If anyone could help me out with this it would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I'm a 39 year old UX Designer from the USA, and I'm plum burned out. I need a while to reboot and recharge my batteries and decide my next steps in life. I'll be visiting Thailand and Cambodia this February. I'm attracted to Cam's policies concerning visas (vs. Thailand). If like it I'll be looking at a move this summer.

Cheers!

Hello everyone,

My name is James and I will be moving to Phnom Penh, Cambodia in January. I currently work in the tech industry in San Jose, California, United States. I do data center and server room builds as well as network infrastructure, structured cabling, and fiber optics termination. After a 3 month vacation in south east asia this year I fell in love with the culture, food, people, and way of life. I decided to earn my TEFL and work in Cambodia as a English teacher and make a long term home for myself in Cambodia while contributing to the local society through teaching English and using my existing tech experience as side work if possible.

I don't have much support from my friends and family in this new direction in life they are very perplexed as to why I would leave the silicon valley and my trade to live in a third world country so I am hoping to meet a lot of like minded people when I arrive and settle in to work and living accommodations.

there is always room for fun and good times in life but looking for other focused professional mindsets to connect with. I have interviews set up in advance but would love to speak with fellow teachers to expand my understanding of local schools and areas, ect...

feel free to PM me
Thanks
