How to make a small fortune in KoW

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.

First heard this one 40+ years ago in Thailand.

Which goes to show why you are now hearing it in Cambodia now. Aren't we 40 years behind LOS
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Yes i been back 5 days and got a foot in the door already laying asphalt.
Just passed my D&A test then.

Better work here in OZ than SEA.

SEA especially KoW doesnt offer competetive rates like the west.

Example the thai salary for a teacher is still 30000 baht a month.

Same as 14, years ago,

And the increase in wages in real terms, in Oz, has been how much over the last 14 years?
