Been here a week. What an overpriced shithole.

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.

Name some places for context.

I have never paid $6 for fried rice. Like Jamie said, it’s $1 from a khmer place and maybe $3-4, at most, at western restaurants. Where did you eat? Raffles or something?

Also name the haircut place. The most I’ve ever paid is $5 and that’s expensive considering I just get my head shaved every month or so.

The cunt charged me $8!!! In the states have never paid more than $6. Note the photo. This is what you get for $6.50 at Burger King.
Why spend $6 on fried rice or junk food at Burger King :? - when you could have had salmon sashimi for $5.60 ?

Prawn cocktail for $6

Or smoked duck with salad for $6

Blame your own lack of knowledge and/or lack of ability to negotiate.
