With a decent budget like that, I'd seriously consider the Russian Market area.

A lot of those places seemed to have very big balconies. I even found a few very modern ones with nice balconies for around $200, which was my budget.

My first choice was a place for $180 that was recently remodeled and had a big, clean balcony about the size of the rest of the house.

When I went back the following weekend to take it, it has already been rented.

Yeah, I had a cycle around there yesterday and have never been quite able to put my finger on exactly where is the
russian market area! Went down to the market cycled around , up and down a few streets and most streets seemed to have construction going on ended up by the smelly river , is that considered Russian Market? Anyway, if you're in that neck of the woods or any woods for that matter and you wanna earn a double commission , one from me and one from the landlord give us a PM.
Back ground if you don't know me is 17 or is it 18 years in Cambodia the last 15/16 in PP , no khmer tag alongs, no parties , just me . Spent 7 years in my first place and another 7 in this one!

Yeah, the Russian Market area is kind of vague.

I'd almost say West of Monivong, Northwest of Street 430 and South of Street 432, which makes a very sloppy triangle shaped area.

Closer to Monivong is probably more accurately called Bong Trabek, but that whole area makes it easy to jump onto Monivong and be heading up to the center of the city in no time.

Ah! Thanks for explaining that, I had always wondered why anyone would wanna live there - Didn't realise that there was more than just the market streets. Might have to look again later.

I suggested this on the other forum ages ago but it was ignored. Get a general map of PP on this site showing all the areas and street numbers. Highlight your advertiser's locations on that map. :thumb:

The building I am moving into near russian market has an apartment available. I will need to check if it is 1 or 2 bedroom, mine is 2 bedroom.

It is a new building and either unfurnished or furnished. Basically you negotiate what you want so I got some ACs, beds, tv's, washing machine, fridge, tables, chairs. She needs 2-3 weeks time to buy the stuff before move in but I got a month to give my current landlord proper notice.

The 2 balconies I have I would term "entrance balconies" but 1 seems more suited to enter the apartment and the other to set some chairs & small table for my beer station.

I will get you more info if you want, i currently dont even know what street it is on unless I look at my contract again or just drive over. :facepalm:
