SEA is boring

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.

SEA is boring

Post by saigonjackpot » Thu Aug 10, 2017 9:56 am

This trip I feel as if Im in a retirement home in SEA with the amount of old dudes wandering around grumbling and hanging in there cliquey little bars drinking them selfs into there daily coma to cope with boredom.

But seriously it is very few boring here I mean where is the parks, librarys, fishing spots ,surfspots ,skateparks, community centres in SEA?

I believe thisis a huge underlying issue fueling to the huge drug and alcohol consumption in the region because there is simply just nothing to do.

Stop going to the same old places u have been before
u obviously dont look very hard..Plenty of Thai city has what ur looking for ( although u will not find a library in se aisa that carries english language books outside Singapore) the Wat or temple is used as a community center.
Phuket has plenty of fishing and surf spots

want adventure? head to Burma

All my previous trips to India I found that I was never bored. Every day there something different happening.
