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.

Been here a week.
Well, you've covered nearly every requirement to join "The League of Extraordinarily Naive Travelers" and you did it all within a week. I'm surprised you didn't make the palace trip with StroppyChops visiting family.
Yes... Cambodia is way overpriced...
--- A typical day......
$2.50 bacon and egg breakfast at western style place
$1.5 Lok Lak beef and rice for lunch street side
$1.5 chicken thigh and rice off street vendor.
$1 pack of cigarettes.
50 cent beers in the evening,,,,
and the total.... less than $8 for the day
OMG... So expensive... I could have saved a dollar if I was in Vietnam !!
Water quenches the thirst, alcohol releases the truth.

Back in December, while in Siem Reap, I picked up a pack of ciggies from a little shop for 50 cents. It was like being transported back to the seventies.
FYI: i dont smoke, but yesterday looked at the price of cigs in 7/11 "Marlboro's " 165 baht!!!! ( $5.15)
Must be Phuket pricing. In Bangkok and Pattaya, Marlboros are 145 baht -- unless they raised the price yet again since I left week ago. My Mild 7 brand is 150 baht. In VN, my same brand is 32 baht/$1 from a carton -- one-fifth the price of Thailand.
