Seriously Zigi if it's so dangerous why do come here again and again. I can trawl the internet and look for trouble on any place anywhere LONDON for godsake. I have friends here with small children they are not innocently minded, I'm sorry your friend died but don't let that past experience send you on a witch hunt.

LOL. I dont think putting this guy up to help your argument is a good idea.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

As speaking for most parts of cambodia that dont have any tourisme and thats 98% of the country they are wonderfull warm people i like them personaly way more then thet Thais...and you could stay there forever without spending 1$ they will open the doors for you without anything to ask or excpect in return but then you have to go on with learn the language to make this a great experience.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

I was there for a couple of weeks a year ago.
Really nice place for a short vacation, dunno about living there.
But you sure make me envy your position now when I'm back in Sweden and it's all cold again!

people do your own research rather looking at these, there are many travel forums, I have gone from thinking this guys actually cared to thinking they just want to attack a thread. It's easy to research look at tripadvisor.com and see what tourist thought when they visited last week! Tourist are killed everywhere it's a sad fact of life. I remeber LA being the hotspot a little while ago

That was the sound of the monocle falling from my eye and in to my sherry.

But maybe you should have mentioned it was "IMO and that the death of a friend may have effect my judgement" Let people do there own research if they can read this forum they can read another about Cambodia not your highlighted sensationlist picks.

please start another post "IMO it's too dangerous to live and play poker in Cambodia" and get of mine

I didn't say anything about the veracity of the links, just that I found them from zigi's link. The first hand experiences that Mark posted, at least, I do not think were fabricated.

He definitely does seem a little... extreme... in his dislike for Cambodia though. Must be the whole being robbed and chased by guys with machetes thing.

Zigi do you think you may just be a "know it all" ones of those people who have to preach over others. I didn't post looking for advice from you btw I don't think or care if you are jealous, i never mentioned living the dream. Do you not understand you are talking from one persons experience. Come back with some UN stats or something or buzz of, you are boring now

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

Ok to make it clear if anybody wana go see OP he will most prob have a great great time and a great holliday for weeks, months i just think IMO that its not the place to stay. And yes having a friend murderd there could give me another insight in all this.

If Phnom Phen was on the beach i was alredy living there for years i personaly feel way safer there in the capital isnt it weird that crimerate is so huge in that little beachplace?and only few % ever hit the newspaper isnt it sick i cant find nothing on a murder of a foreigener there?I was there i saw it otherwise i would think i was just telling myself a story.

Jeez man you don't stop, you must have really been done over big time when you were in cambodia or your malayasian wife used you as walking atm before ditching you. So much bitterness.

All the best OP, live it up mate.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

If OP really isnt experiencing the problems that Cambodia has living the way he lives then surely they are hugely relevant? Its like you telling me repeatedly how crime ridden and terrible New York is because your friends told you how different it was 20 years ago, i wouldnt give a **** if im living in *insert swanky area of NY here* where none of that crap affects me.
