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.

Ok got it. No bad words about PP but Kampot and Sihanoukville is fair game.

Chill it was just a personal observation.

Wow.

Compared to SR, absolutely nothing has changed in PP.
Once you've read the dictionary, every other book is just a remix.

That’s one place I’ve never planned on living in. Too hot no sea.

what shops are shut? theres no tourists but its not dead
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.
Burger King shut down, but I don't think they were ever very busy. KFC along the road also long gone.

Some places are closed but will reopen. I spoke to the guy from Chiang Mai restaurant and he said they'll open again once tourists return. So, maybe some others as well.
What about mikes burger 🍔 house ?
Do you know ?
I axed him on messenger but dint get a reply ( he’s a busy mofo and didn’t see the message)

I thought it was two weeks?
Possibly you are correct, I have been wrong before (in July 1989 as I recall). But it still costs $1600+ before you get into the community.
Not possibly...he IS correct. It is only 14 days mandatory monitored quarantine, and the cost will vary depending on which hotel you are allocated to, for example I received a $914 refund from my most recent quarantine (but this all discussed in the relevant thread).
