For the rest its indeed a very nice place to travel to if you
dont get involved with the locals to much...so maybe stay away from the casino's there and play in Phnom Phen if you wana play live.
I regulary visit the place and altough its beatyfull i dont have the need to make it my homebase just for the safety reasons and the huge coruption o i forgot to mention the huge amount of drugaddicts.
Ziggi I'm not sure where you hung out to see all this problems.
If anyone has only ever lived at home with your mum then its probably not the place for you. I grew up in London and worked in the night club industry so interms of saftey I've downgraded in threat level. My friends have been for 5 years plus without incident.
Of the 3 Casino's, one is attached to a large hotel, and the other is geared ter towards foriegners (having an unwritten no locals policy). The Manager is Korean and organises friendly $1/2 games occasionally.
Coruption is rife but shouldn't effect anyone either on holiday, living here but not owning a bussines. As for drug addicts I'm sure they are here but I haven't found them.
