Find your Zen moment on a $5000 Cambodia wellness tour

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

Really? I think I would find it hard to spend $450 a day in Cambodia.
you can do some decent balling on $450 a day :beer3: :tophat:
Sure, but these dupes aren't likely to be doing much balling. They are paying way over the odds for snake oil. If they can afford it and it makes them happy then who cares, but they are fucking idiots nonetheless.
yeah, i might set up my own tour group for men wanting to go and see the sights of the bars and KTVs, i could do it for $5000 for 11 nights, all Hotels, Food and Drinks included, and still end up with change in my pocket!
Jamie, ur 20 years to late ( Had friends doing "tours" hitting the night spots in Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket and Hat Yai) ran around $250/day
Included everything but drinks and girls
GGC talked about it all in the late 1990's

People do tours cause they want an "expert" showing them how to, where to and when to
In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST

There was this guy (who another poster alluded to recently) who used to do these brothel tours of Phnom Penh. He would turn up in a minibus with about 10 sex-tourists, and visit whichever (shack) brothel area suited. The places around st 70, 63, Russei Keo, etc. So he'd get there and the mamasan would parade a few girls for these punters, and they'd choose some and then all get ferried back to whatever hotels in the center city, then the girls would be picked up in the same minibus and brought back to the brothel the next morning. The thing about these places was that they were all pretty much indentured Viet chicks who were normall never allowed out, but he had some special arrangement. I'm sure he made very good money out of it, don't have any idea what happened to him in the end. Anyway, all those areas have changed a whole lot since. There's still some potential for that if that's your kind of thing. I'd imagine you'd get fucked over really quickly if you tried it these days though.

I'd take some cashed-up tour any time over a whiner like you who has absolutely no clue and is just a wannabe expert.

The whole concept seems like a sad one, not omly could the patrons no get laid in the west, they needed a guide to show them where to get laid in a third world poverty strickened capital city.

Admittedly, he is the only poster that really does get under mys skin. I don't like clueless, racist idiots much.
