Security 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.

High gun ownership in Cambodia,so dont piss anyone off you drives a Lexus or range rover and all should be good..

Buy seriously I think Cambodia is a perfectly safe place,but there is corruption so learn the ropes before doing business.

Alex, I strongly suggest you avoid Cambodia at all costs, it is the most dangerous country I've ever been to, it's so dangerous that I never even leave my house anymore and have spent thousands of dollars on security upgrades to keep the bad guys out!....

Try the USA, it is the safest country in the entire galaxy!

I have been trying to tell Alex that for 2 weeks, subtly in the beginning, less so off late.

In reality Alex the only places I can think of that might be suitable for you are Liechtenstein or Vatican City.....

he was inboxing me for a while and i was giving him some info/lowdown, hes full of ideas and determination which is good but then theres the reality, and not being able to see that reality due to lack of experience (in his business plans + Cambodia) is whats going to end up leading him down the wrong path,

there is a reason why ive stayed in Cambodia for the past 4 years and never bothered opening a business, i too was full of optimism of starting a few businesses in the past but after doing extensive research on ground, the reality is ill either need to spend a few years back in england saving up a good wedge of money in order to set something up thats not doomed to fail, or end up slaving away putting far too much effort into something that doesnt really return anything, and is more trouble than its worth

one day ill set something up for sure, but still being 29, theres plenty of time
