I'm heading there next month too but I'm gonna keep it nice and simple at first and then slowly put my toes in the water and then wade in to see what Cambodia is all about. I'm gonna go to Siem Reap first and find the cheapest and raunchiest guest house there is and then I'm gonna go to the cheapest and raunchiest bar there is and then sit down and get drunk until even the cheapest and raunchiest girls at that bar start to look good. I'm gonna do this for a few days to get it all out of my system and then I'll go back to being the real me. I really do like to start from the very bottom and work my way up.

........ Well with elections next year your timing is perfect for toe-dipping.

Every Scooby-Doo episode would literally be 2mins long if the gang went to the mask store first and asked a few questions.

I tend to sleep in the nude. Which isn't a bad thing except for maybe on those long flights.

Good advice. Simple as that, really.

I'm not sure Siem Reap has too many raunchy bars.

yeah Siem Reap is not a good place to start to get anything "out your system" unless youre talking about Temples or overpriced Moto Rentals
