Siem Reap visit

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.

I need to know more,Thailand destroys itself too. Always someone else to blame, us farang, evil bastards aren't we. A curse on them but quick to take the Yankee dollar for a touch of pussy.
I resent this police/military state, I want to be left alone.
I doubt you would feel much better living here though.
I have 10 police officers at my house every 3 to 4 months to check up on me. I don't have a problem with it since they're always very friendly but it happens here too.
Can you tell more about that? What's their excuse for coming? Do they hang around until you give them enough for a few beers?
Still don't know exactly why. I ask them every time, why they come so much since they know my visa is good for another 8/6/4 months or whatever but they told me it's their boss who tells them to check up on me. They always ask me if I still live alone so maybe they're just worried about me lol. They're always friendly but it was a bit intimidating the first time 10 uniformed men showed up here to be honest. And no I never give them any money nor do they ask for it. I always offer them something to drink but that's about it. And they always take a lot of pictures of me and the house as well. And I usually end up with 5 new phone numbers from them since its not always the same cops that come. All a bit strange but I'm used to it now.
They just might like to see how your house is coming together. Not like the normal Khmer build. :)

Nah it was from when I first started living here in Kep, long time ago. Think they don't have much to do here so they fill their days like this.
just noise, white noise

Haven't had a thai police man or immigration official at my door since back in '89 when i was accused of being a drug dealer
Thailand survives, they are great at re inventing themselves and they have learned,
better to bend than break... :beer3:
Maybe they don't come around in Phuket because it's swarming with so many foreigners but they come around often in Chiang Rai and Ubon. Had two in one week once.
