Re: why the english visit Cambodia

Works for me too right now, but if I'm drinking 1$ beers i'm under no illusion they're comparable to what I would be drinking back home for 4$ :beer3: Personally, If I ever decide to have a family with a local girl, I'm pretty damn sure I would be heading back home when the kids hit school age. Migh...

Re: why the english visit Cambodi

Forget Phnom Penh. You can buy a decent apartment in SHV for two people for $30K, or rent one for $250 a month. That's much cheaper than anywhere by the sea in UK, Europe or Australia. And they can only get cheaper, there's so many going up. So forget the mortgage, and there are no taxes to speak o...

Re: why the english visit Cambodia

Yeah, I just find it funny some famillies out here living on 20Kish a year, renting a 2 bed khmer bungalow or apt. down some broken alley or dirt road for 300$/mth, driving their kid(s) to a cheap school in an old '98 CRV or even on a motorbike, claiming their life out here is so cheap compared to t...

Re: why the english visit Cambodia

C'mon you don't seriously think you can buy a nice house in some PP borey comparable to one in some middle class suburb for about 15k$ do you? That's about the yearly cost for a 25y 300k mortgage @2%. You're looking at around ten times that, and your mortgage would be at 8-10% (if you could get one)...

Re: why the english visit Cambodia

I should have qualified that as middle class family lifestyle, say a family with a couple kids that buys a new car every five years, owns their own home and the kids get a good education. Obviously if you're a renter and smokes, booze and whores factor significantly into your budget then you're bet...

Re: French Embassy in Phnom Penh, Cambodia Claim You Need To Make $2,500 a Month To Marry a Cambodian ONLY IF You're Ove
