Kampong Cham

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.

Who lives there in town?

Got a supermarket?

Costs for a shophouse to rent in a location for a cafe?

Any expats?

Overrun by Chinese?

Reliable power?

Are there any English teachers to enable the O.P. to construct a grammatically correct sentence? :D

As I understand it the purpose of grammar is "to help ensure clarity of communication".
What's unclear about the 6 questions above?

It's fair to say I'm not that bright, but If you let me know what question/s you don't understand I'll try help you out.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Frank, as you probably know I don't live in KC proper, but nearby and visit the city weekly. There are cafés all along the riverfront and the rents are outrageous. Furthermore they are primarily dilapidated warehouses, not shop houses. Another couple of minuses; the city is seen primarily as as one day. transit point. As for expats there are several Christian NGOs, including a large Morman faction.

I don't know if you remember Tanya who died a few years back, but she rented a shop house but couldn't make a go out of it and moved on. She had excellent food, especially German and reasonably priced beer.

As for the Chinese, they are mostly 3rd&4th generation, but businesses from the PRC have been buying up land just outside of the city.

Supermarkets? Small and overpriced. Tanya shoped in PP as I am forced to do. Power is sketchy during storms.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

I was in KC a year or two ago i cant remember exactly, Seems like a friendly enough place, Locals are closed compared to Other places, Mostly you will feel like an outsider there without Khmer langaugae skills.
