What is Your Favorite Place in Cambodia?

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.

really? cool, we have some land there ( also some down in Kep that is much nicer) that is currently growing rice, and a small house, near the families
we are off the main road about 8 kms before SR city.
In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST

no shit! we may be neighbors (or cousins...lol)! the last big(ish) market before SR city you take the road in the market with the pagoda arch (almost as you leave, on the right, heading towards SR city) and go a few km down.

i'll get the village name from the wife when she get back... i can never remember it.

i actually plan on moving out there mostly full time in the next year or two i think. electricity is pretty close to where we are, i have the family getting me quotes on running it all the way in, and decent 3g reaches the house fine now.

if i can get electric in a few updates to my house there and i'll be able to aircon 1 room... making it livable ;-)

no idea what that means either... lol.

we have a generator and solar, but still about 1km away from the nearest EDC power lines.
we have well water, pumped into the roof tanks by the generator when needed, rice chickens, geese, ducks, dogs, cows, pigs, a fish farm, a half acre veg garden, methane reclamation system, composting system... and a pet pigeon. and handful of kids running around as well.

what's interesting about all of that... only the generator was my idea. the rest was the idea of the khmer family members.

Kampong Cham, no contest.

Western side of the river, over the bridge, turn right, about 3 km downstream.

Ok... according to the wife "far away". still not that far based on your description (compared to say, PP). next time you're headed up give a shout, we'll carpool. ;-)
