    I went to PP and Siem Reap.
    It's a poor country but the people are friendly and everything is cheap. It's an underrated destination in SEA in my opinion.

    Cambodia is objectively a complete shithole and the city poors look at you like you are a piece of meat ripe for being robbed and everyone is malnourished
    You can derive a bit of enjoyment from is as long as you are careful but it's definitely low on my SEA list of "good places to go"

    PP is gross and has no redeeming qualities. See the genocide stuff then leaves unless you want to chase 18 year old prostitutes in the bar district.

    Siem Reap is cool, not just for the ruins. You missed your chance to see them without chink tourists ruining the place during covid, but early morning should still be fine.

    Kampot is becoming something. All the white guys left sahainoukville and went there.

    Overall it's a depressing country where the most down and out drug addicted sexpats wind up. You can get any type of pills for cheap and these guys just stay strung out for months/years until expiring.

    It's the real end of the line for lots of scumbags.

    BTW the new SighSee janitor is total dogshit. Do better you seething israelite.

      When you say "any", what could I get there?

          Valium
          Tramadol
          Apparently oxycodone and morphine at some pharmacies

        Anything. Whatever pill-form drug you want, you can get it. It's why Cambodia is the place for pill fiends. Painkillers are pretty much the name of the game though. You can easily stay strung out on painkillers indefinitely for SEA prices, until you manage to have a nice day or run out of money and get deported.

        It's rife with hardcore drugs as well, but pills are cheap and easily accessible. Just don't expect to be revived if you OD. Cambodians will watch you die in the street, then take your wallet and your phone and if you are lucky, call a corpse wagon to pick you up once you start to stink.

          Thanks, anons. This does sound pretty dope, but also quite scary. I feel like I'd be better off in Thailand drinking kratom and smoking weed than dealing with beggars or crime.

      >You missed your chance to see them without chink tourists
      I didn't. And honestly didn't like Cambodia that much but holy shit, I loved Angkor wat. First thing I asked my private guide. Where are the Chinese tourist? Why is everything this empty? Is this low season? No Chinese! little tourist!.
      What a dream. Spent 4 full days exploring everything during the day and massages/pool at night. I still don't believe how empty it was.

        Nah PH isn't such a great place for a junkie. It's much riskier.

    Cambodia is great; especially Siem Reap and the countryside for temple exploration. People are really friendly and the food didnt give me diarrhea. I avoided the cities like the plague though.

    Food was mid compared to the surrounding countries. Seeing a pile of skulls from a killing field was sobering. Ruins were impressive, if you can pay for a guide it is very worth it imo. Learn enough Khmer and visit the local marketplaces to haggle proper at the tourist traps. Locals were chill but I wouldn’t go drinking or partying with them.

    It has some of the best ancient ruins in Asia. Also make sure you visit the art museum in Phnom Penh to see the ancient art and artifacts.

    It’s not Thailand or Vietnam. The poverty and lack of infrastructure is on another level. There are decent roads in the heart of the city and highways, but much of it is dirt. When it rains the dirt roads don’t drain and are hard to navigate. While there’s some green, again it’s not the same as popular SEA destinations. It’s dusty and it stinks. The food is awful. Re: drugs I had a lot of Valium and tramadol as mentioned, but never found any oxycodone. Despite all this I had a fun time. This is all based on Siem Reap so take it with a grain of salt, I don’t know what the rest of the country is like, but I imagine it’s even grittier.

      How does it compare to Laos though?

        Laos seems overall calmer and more provincial. Very slightly better infrastructure in Laos, but then again I went there a few years after travelling Cambodia.

      Well shit I'm a little worried that I'm going during the rainy season then, especially since I'll be taking busses from PP to Battambang to Siem reap

        It’ll probably take longer than advertised, but you should be OK on highways. They’re not great but serviceable. It’s only when you get into the villages that it’s an issue. Rainy season can cut off huge areas from each other. I tried replicating a cycle route I took near Siem Reap to the ocean last year in rainy season but it was impossible; it was all under water. The route I ended up taking was just depressing. The poverty off the beaten track is unreal, and I’m talking 30 mins from Siem Reap by bike or less.

    I went to Siam Reap 10 years ago and liked it. I wonder how much it has (or hasn't) improved in the last decade? Has any anon been around that time period and then again more recently?

    One Turk told me to avoid the trannies as they'll gut you the moment you're fricked up.

    Well I liked it. I had a sharp Khmer gf who had degrees in finance and English which helped a LOT with the skin tax bullshit and dealing with the locals. Spent three years living half the year in PP, half the in US. Made a few trips by air to siem reap, a couple more to koh rong island which is nice. Actually considered retiring to siem reap, but the healthcare in the whole country is probably the worst in all of SEA, which would be problematic in old age. I’d recommend KL honestly.

      What kinds of hobbies did you do whilst living there? I'm considering moving to Asia and living a few months in some of the SEA countries. To me it seems imperative that you need to have something to do to not get bored and the poverty situation seems like it's difficult to get into sports or hobbies there.

        I’m an old gym rat so that was my main hobby. Picrel was a funny place with a tree growing in the middle of it and no ac, I think it cost me 50 cents for the day. You can find better equipped gyms at reasonable prices. There’s also rugby, Australian rules football, football (soccer), volleyball leagues foreigners can join.

        Other than that, couples stuff with the gf. Travel, go out to eat, movies etc Saw just about every touristy thing you could think of…couple days at Angkor Wat, killing fields, s21 prison, royal palace, Russian market, boat down the Mekong, nagaworld casino (great but expensive for the country buffet).

        The wealth disparity is insane. The first time I went there I was shocked by the amount of luxury cars I saw driving around PP. the traffic is also insane and takes a bit getting used to.

      Yeah it's funny. Poor+ugly+shit attitudes. A few gems here and there but overall they are awful people in general COMPARED to thai or Vietnam girls.

      On one hand it made for some really guilt free encounters since I don't give a shit about some girl who is acting b***hy and clock watching. I'll just pop the condom and cum inside of her, then send her off without letting her wash her c**t out.
