Moving back to Phnom Penh

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.

Good thread this. I flew into SR in 2004 I think and fell in love with Cambodia. Pub St was fun but it turned to shit years ago. I really liked the tall trees and the river. I think I would like to live there again rather than Kampot or Snooky. Hotels are cheap to buy but I would like a little bar where I could drink myself to death.
I am 70 this year so another stint in Cambodia would be the last lap.

I know Dave well and he don’t do drugs even when I offer him a toke of good stuff , he’ll have a few beers ( he likes that angor shit ) I buy him a couple craft beers then after oiled up a little I switch to my cambodia cans - some day I hope to win a moto I think i deserve by now becuz I drink about a case a day

I just don’t understand why I get kicked out of just about every place I go - looking forward I might move back to shitsville
Never Pp , that place is way too ugly - pure garbage city yuck good riddance to aaron and any rebels still around
Thanks, that's good info. Dave is just naturally a goofball then? And how about offering me a toke of the good stuff? Or even of the schwag stuff? But ya gotta admit, Aaron and Dave make a very cute couple and should never be separated.
The only 2 things they have in common is their passports and e-begging. Oh and the joint reluctance to ever get a job.
I also think their sex preferences are the same. Fruitcakes. Yes that's why left Trumpville, too many jobs. Now that the new prez is in, no need for a job.
Above I said I know Dave , he lives with a very nice girl and they really do DO good things with limited funds
i Vouch for dave
Thank you. You have contributed to my change of attitude about Dave of Dave Does Cambodia fame. The other thing was there aren't many criminal records on him, at least in Michigan. Now Aaron, of Aaron in Cambodia fame, is an altogether different story.....

I'd love to. What about visa policy though? Can I stay more than a year? Thanks.

I moved back to Laos almost 2 years ago. I never have to meet an immigration officer or any other government official. Just collect my one-year business visa, work permit and ID card from the visa agent....

Burger King and all the shops that have the shutters down that were open when I was last there. Oskas is shut plus many other places.

Check the time stamp on the post - 4.30pm. Everyone asleep, getting ready for the night!

The timestamp says 10:30 AM. Sounds like you need to go into your User Control Panel and change what time you're on.
