Expats of tourists ?any Questions on KoW ?

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.

440 and Cambodia expats online you all would obviously know I have lived in Cambodia long term and know more than your fare share about the country and customs.

Hence I am now willing to take questions and answers about KoW including strict exact prices


If you have any thing you wanna know from a REAL EXPAT who actually lived in KoW and worked in KoW then please don't be shy to ask.
If this were a poll, my vote would be; Who gives a fuck?
Since I been in and out of KoW since back in the day I'm just telling it how it is.
At the same time you still dodge the issue of letting us know how long exactly you have lived in Cambodia and if you exactly did anything apart from staring at walls and haggling over the price of a pineapple. Learning English was obviously not an activity you engaged in.
I lived there in and out of the KoW for 7 years , since I make 100k a year now i no longer need to work in dive bars serving up beers for 10 dollars a day.

steung treng will become a major development entrepot in the next few years, well planned by Laos,Cambodia, and China.
Indeed, ST town is already a major drug-trafficking centre for Laotian, Chinese and Khmer, so watch where you put your bees. Last time I was there was about 2 years ago, and I've never lived there, but it was strikingly small, dirty and unpleasant. Just my personal opinion, I've never liked it, but perhaps other people have some more positive things to say about it ?

Did you ever think of Kratie ? It's out of the way but very chilled, and only 4 hours by minivan to PP now, and about 3 hours to the Laos border. Don't think there is a problem with pesticides - you'd have to check - we saw a lot of butterflies recently if that means anything. There's a WWF place in Kratie tied in with the dolphins and Mekong conservation. How much land do you need for your hives ?
I spent a few days there last summer while going back and forth up to the Mekong looking at land, Found a great river front hotel for $14, nice market, a few good Cheap restaurants, not hot and enjoyably at night on the river. Couldn't live there but....Been to worse places..

Since Trapper doesn't have a clue, can we come back to this:

Can a Thai visit Preah Vihear on the Cambodia side?
I'd imagine they can if they enter through an official border? It was probably a bit more of an issue a few years back when they were firing artillery at each other but it's still a sensitive issue. What's the answer Richard? 8-)
Where do the bats hang out in Battambang?
It's a pure coincidence, involving extensive limestone caves and the Khmer for Loss of Stick.
Thais are NOT allowed to go up to Preah vhear temple from the Cambodian side as ( they say) its a security issue

With a few greenbacks anything's possible in KoW it's just not a relevant question.

Are you kidding? The admins see him as a cash cow - regardless of the "this belongs to all of us!" mantra
We've banned him several times.
Spoiler:
I've never wanted him banned. So, Einstein, can you explain that one for me? Why have I never wanted him banned? Because I have some superhuman skill that allows me to read what I want to read, skip over what I don't, and....this one is really something special.....I have a superhero-like skill that allows me to open a topic I realize I'm not interested in, and here is the magic part of it.... I have the ability to NOT open it again!!!

So huff and puff all you want Stroppy about how I'm some dictator and you and all the other peasants have no say around here, lol... You know you just like prodding me and stirring the pot.

For the record, some members have been kind enough to take the time and report him through our system (which is designed specifically for this reason, who would have thought...) and even his karma shows that he's not thought of very positively by some, so ALL of these things are taken into consideration when deciding what to do with which members, etc...
Triggered.
