Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

I tend to sleep in the nude. Which isn't a bad thing except for maybe on those long flights.

Don't forget to get a wax whilst your there.... Especially on the bikini line.

That's not a massage. That's the cupping, if the place isn't actually just a handjob shop (which also isn't just 10,000R). Many of the places you see with those signs are just fronts for a sex shop. Some are actually legit places to get the cupping/coining stuff done (which khmer consider a form of massage) and some will actually give you a regular massage but it costs more than 10,000R (bus is still super cheap). Sort of a crap shoot on which kind you'll get.

What part of town are you in? Steung Meanchey? If so I can direct you to a really nice oil massage.

Shhh, I wasn't going to tell him!

That said, I have found a few places that actually give you a legit massage at the 10,000 Riel places. Hit or miss.

I wondered. The missus and I usually look for a legit place together in a new town so I can relax getting a massage, and she can relax about me getting a massage. This seemed too cheap, I'm used to paying $4 for an oil massage in PP. I had cupping in China, supposedly good for diabetics but I'm still not convinced.

We're currently at a certain Australian's establishment near Sovanna markets.

It's really a win/win. You just don't know what kind of smile you'll have walking out.

OD, you got an oil change at TELA. There's a difference.
Oh, Carruthers, if you can hear me, wave your antennae.
