Re: Medication to help with concentration and alertness.

According to myth and legend, one of the more famous things that Cambodia is known for is the ability to buy over-the-counter drugs at will, without the hassle of getting a prescription from a doctor, as we'd usually have to do in the west. I'm not a big drug taker of any kind - I'd have to have a ...

Re: Where to now?

Next stop UK, for 2 months to get vaxxed up, see a few people, do some shopping etc. I'm also heading back to the UK. The reason was primarily to get vaccinated and then return to Cambodia, but the more I think about it, the more excited I am at returning to some sort of normality, having been here...

Re: Rental prices

Were they the expat groups on FB? I see cheap places on there all the time. It seems now is a pretty good time to rent. Plenty of places in the 200-300 range. Even around Russian Market.

Re: China: Man left dangling from bridge after glass breaks

My only problem with this bridge would be that it's designed and manufactured by the same country that gave us the man-eating escalators just a few years ago, rockets that become uncontrollable with no-one having a clue where they will land, and the worlds most deadly pandemic since WW1. What would ...

Re: Medication Advice - Co-codamol

I take paracetamol with codeine in the same way other people would take ordinary paracetamol - for the odd ache, pain and headache here and there. I find paracetamol on has little to no effect on me. I can happily take them for a day or two and not take them again for several months, I've never felt...

There is another way out, via the airport. Which, to me, is looking more and more viable as the days pass...

Re: 400 bucks to fly to the uk?!?!

As for which route, Korea or Singapore, keep this in mind. I have definitely seen (I’m sure it’s been in CEO news about passengers having arrived from Korea) and heard of people testing positive after arrival in Phnom Penh via Korea. I’ve not heard of this happening with Singapore, although it prob...

Re: Wild storm in PP yesterday 06 May 21 (pics and video)

It was a freaky weather event, that's for sure. I've seen videos online of hail falling as well but I'm not sure if it was Phnom Penh or not. It wouldn't surprise me. I did think while the storm was raging that it felt like hail should have been falling. There's another photo milling about of that o...

Re: 400 bucks to fly to the uk?!?!

I was looking at the same $400 flight as the OP and was very tempted. Thank God for this forum. I wasn't aware that the arrival rules included countries you had transited through as well as the country you originated from. Thanks. Looking again, it seems that the best deal at the moment is PP>Seoul>...
