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.

Thats durian to crab market. Maybe I have wrong tires on my truck giving me an off reading.
Let's say 30 k conservatively.
Then only 185 KPH. or 110MPH.

It's 18 km from when I leave my gate in Kep to the coffee shop at the old station in Kampot. So perfectly possible to do in less than 15 min if you follow the speed limits, 10 to 13 minutes during the day when the roads are empty and you can drive a little over limit (I timed it a lot of times cause I have to pick up visitors regularly that arrive with the bus in Kampot.) I'm not a crazy driver, only had a speeding ticket once in my life (and that was on the way from pp to siem reap).

Oh lordy;

''And if you have a car you are in Kampot in 10 minutes

Seriously? LMAO Try 45 minutes on am very good day.
?? 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!
Took me 40 mins on a moto, but I was being careful because the speedo on the rented bike didn't work, and I could have used some gloves for grip on the throttle. But even so I doubt it would have been less than 30 otherwise. Shingle/grit, potholes and stuff to contend with.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

Just talked with my friend in Kampot, he says with a tuktuk it's only 20 to 30 minutes, I don't believe 45 minutes with a car is possible in any scenario.. Anyway, we are off topic i believe: Move to Kep, it's only between 10 and 45 minutes from Kampot!

....you can have a huge western style house with swimming pool and big garden for the price of a tiny house in shv
Calling you out on this...
western style with pool, http://kep-estate-properties.com/proper ... ian-house/ $450/night bit more than a small house in snv :facepalm:

from Kep beach to Kampot market takes me at least 20 minutes by car..

Yes, that's a tourist price for a night in a house that's currently for sale for about a million $! When I rent out my current house the daily rate will also be about 150$ to 200$ but monthly rental is not comparable. Less work, hassle and bills with a monthly rental.

huh? its only 22km from the Durian to the Beach
Kampot to Kep on a 125 moto takes 20-30minutes driven it numerous times, takes only 10-15 in an SUV from my friends home just outside of town near Tuek Chhou

It's easy to see. Just look at that map.
Kampot to Kep is all downhill, so it should be faster going that way than returning....

Well you know PR I am calling you out on this, I know you live in Thailand and come once or twice a year to Cambodia which you think makes you some kinda expert on everything. but the OP just said he went to see a shitty small 2 bedroom hous in SHV $700, he then went to see another one which h thought would be less and that was $2,700 so yes a place in Kep at $450 is a heck of a lot cheaper.

The rents in SHV have skyrocketed over the last 12 months. Perhaps you are due another fact finding mission here to update your knowledge sir. :facepalm:
