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.

Been here a week. What an overpriced shithole.

Post by NeverNude »

Been here a week. Trying to get away from fucking $6 fucking dollar fried rice I go to the Burger King. On the way I stop at s shop for a haircut. 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. They call it a double cheeseburger and bacon. What you get is what is actually a “Slider” or mini-Burger. Note the ketchup packet for size reference. Then there was the tuktuk fucker. Ride’s finished, I pay him from inside the tuktuk. I get out, start walking, and no shit—the fucking driver drives up to me and says I didn’t pay him. I was dumbfounded. Told him I literally just paid you 10 seconds ago. He says i must have paid someone else. Seriously. Don’t even get me started on why fucking weed is more expensive than cocaine here. Seriously, this place is a shit stain with 75 year old ladyboy fucking meth heads. Christ.

How long are you staying? And can you start posting daily accounts, please?

For some reason I get a kick out of reading tourist rants.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

$6. fried rice? What did it have in it, caviar? You are in need of guidance from a long term expat.

$2 for a meal with bottomless rice is easily available.

Tuk tuk is under $2 pretty much anywhere with Passapp.

Hair cut is less than $2.

Total bulls hit from the OP...

..well either that or a naive tourist first time in the third world.

I await his tales of encounters with ladies from girly bars.

Haircut $1-3, $5 to clueless tourists...$8 to...

as for the tuk tuk driver, he probably saw how clueless you are and fancied his chances :ROFL:
