Losing our house

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.

Whelp, so far, zero success in locating a house. We even went out past Clang Leu near Caltex and found a tiny two bedroom with a giant dirt hole at the front for $700. Gosh, what a steal. Found another house towards Stung Hav near Prek Treng Beach. I thought to myself, this house must be cheaper than the rest. No. $2700/month. Really looking like Kampot is becoming a real possibility.

Not just Kampot, coming to Koh Kong and border towns soon, too.

Anywhere a new casino can be built, basically.

Come to Kep, the governor here doesn't want casino's and you can have a huge western style house with swimming pool and big garden for the price of a tiny house in shv. And if you have a car you are in Kampot in 10 minutes if you need more entertainment or shopping than Kep currently offers.

?? I already live here a long time, I've never driven longer than 20 minutes to kampot and that was on a khmer holiday weekend or something, can usually do it in 10 to 13 minutes during a normal weekday. Don't know the times with a tuktuk or scooter but can't imagine it would ever be 45 minutes, I'm almost halfway to PP in that time!

Except one or two private little places, on the way to casinos....for now.

36 kilometers & 200 kilometers per hour is 10.48 minutes. Or about 120mph. :facepalm:
Hella driver you. Please tell me what you drive so I will know what blew by me so fast I couldn't see it.
