You can make it here. Schools are all privately owned, you don't even need a tefl, just bullshit a resume and dress nice. Felon? Failure? It doesn't matter, you can start fresh here.

The obvious touts and beggars are no biggie. A firm "no" and a shake of the head, coupled with a wag of the finger if necessary, nearly always gets you left alone in Southeast Asia.
If you are someone who is easily annoyed by petty bullshit, you shouldn't visit impoverished countries, much less live in one.
Food ripoffs are what rustles my jimmies. I want to order and enjoy a meal without steeling myself for an arbitrary and whimsical surcharge, i.e. "how much can we get whitey to pay?"

How do the local eateries in Cambodia compare to Thailand?
>>2645743
Not if you engage in activities which most all foreigners in Cambodia engage in...even drinking in bars with no extra shenanigans is going to add up to $200/month at least. Riding tuktuks is another great way to piss away money.

Cambodia is known for for people offering you kids to fuck, although its probably an extortion scam, things are more wild west there, I believe your still able to blow up a cow with an RPG for 400 bucks at a gun range there

i'm off to see angkor wat for the first time in a couple of weeks. any protips? i just booked one of those online tours but can still ditch if there are better ways of traversing the temple complex.

I'll take your word for it anon. I'm sure you'd know.
>>
>>2646142
Benzos can be had over the counter in Thailand and Vietnam too, but are you totally sure about opiates m8? What about barbiturates?
>>
>>2646370
Yea tramadol and dihydrocodeine are popular, I've heard of oxycodone being available I think it just comes down to what they stock at the particular pharmacy, same for barbiturates if they even still stock those. I've moved beyond that life but it's great that it's available for people who want it. I actually ruined every vein in my body by injecting pure alprazolam dissolved in propylene glycol, often mixed with cocaine
>>
>>2646390
>ruined every vein in my body
How so? What does this mean for you? I've done a lot of droogs but never got into needles.
>>
>>2646396
They all still function, it's just from being pricked so much they have all curled up and hidden themselves. It's impossible to find a vein now if I need to get blood drawn or a i.v., they have to use a machine that highlights your views to find them. That's the only difficulty I experience from it. Not a huge deal unless I'm dying in a ambulance and they can't find a vein to give me blood or fluids

i did a early morning sunrise tour to Phnom Bakheng which was quite nice if a bit crowded. starting out early is best. we didnt use a guide for the remainder. however, we did take up a private $$$ tour of the spires which were under renovation. that was absolutely worth it and felt delightfully naughty. if i recall hot air balloon tours are also available. the rest of the time we just explored on our own. it was too damn hot to have to deal with other people. bring a good camera.

It was $600 in 2019 when I was offered the opprotunity by a tuk tuk driver. I assume I could have haggled it down, but I was a broke college kid at the time. Can't remember if that was Phnom Penh or Siem Reap but it was a very real thing with a fancy looking brochure.

>>2645889
>Cambodians are awful people in general. Like all the worst parts of thai culture with none of the good. Women are very cold hearted also.

Boy they sure had me fooled. I got my card eaten by an ATM machine in a mall and a random middle age cambodian woman helped get me to mall management, translated for me, and got my card back just because she happened to see me in distress. To think this whole time she was actually evil and out to get me. Dodged a bullet there!

My first solo backpacking trip was to Cambodia, and folks were very quick to help a clueless 20 year old white kid in their midst. Sure there are scammers and pickpockets but you can find them in Italy as well.
>>
>>2645712
Damn this guys videos are a fucking trip, I just went down a rabbit hole of this guys entire life in Cambodia. His tranny fucking videos are funny as hell, and I do enjoy that he names specific places and streets in Phnom Penh to get drugs kek
>>
>>2647456
Yea I obsessively watched all his videos and then emailed him and asked to meet up and he obliged. Pretty cool

Too bad he got murdered by some Mexican cartel dudes
>>
>>2647474
>Too bad he got murdered by some Mexican cartel dudes
Story?
>>
>>2647478
So the official story is that he had a massive, drug induced heart attack because he died in the shower and the shower was left running and he was in a serious state of decomposition when his body was found. His mom claimed that he had mentioned he had trouble urinating or something.

However, leading up to his death he had made a video about getting into an altercation with his neighbors at whatever apartment he was staying at because they were playing their music too loud.

At the point he was in mexico, and before that when I met him, he had come back from Cambodia cuz he was rotmaxxing and drug maxxing and it was getting bad, so I don’t really believe it was drug related. You can go through all his videos and he’ll explain the timelines.

When I met him he was living at home in Winchester VA. Staying clean, working, etc. then he went to Mexico.
>>
>>2645712
The best youtuber there ever was.

Watch his videos, he was a great story teller. The old guys on cambodian forums of course didnt appreciate him but his videos were just so fun even if im not into the drugs and tranny shit, he was just raw and honest about it all. Even before he was with trannies his content was great
Ended up back in america just talking to the camera in the woods and even them videos were great
>>
>>2647704
I only heard about him today. Just watched a ton of his videos. He seemed like a genuine as fuck person and bluntly honest without being an obnoxious asshole. Admitted his mistakes and didn't sugar-coat any of his actions while remaining informative and educational. The world is a worse place without him. Addiction is a cunt.
>>
>>2647596
Reading comprehension tells me you mean Thailand.

Read “the king never smiles” and “inside Thai society.” If you go to Thailand having read those books you’ll have an excellent frame of reference to absorb Thailand intelligently and conduct yourself optimally

The folks at khmerr440 at the time and over the years have a real time thread about his videos. Definitely worth a read to see what people thought then and when it was happening

I've seen a lot of things about Cambodia but it just appear to be a shittier version of Thailand.

The Western-style food seems slightly cheaper but that's about it. I don't get the appeal
>>
>>2649682
>shittier version of Thailand
This actually makes it sound like a better version of Thailand when you say this.
>>
What the fuck is the food like in Cambodia? I've never been there and I've never seen a Cambodian restaurant. I love both Thai and Vietnamese. Is it similar to either of these, and/or even close to the same tier of deliciousness?

like all asian food; some variation of soft sludge

was considering cambodia as well as vietnam and thailand. is the cost of living really that cheap that i can just tefl and get by? i do have a college degree and TEFL cert. i already did TEFL for 1 year in korea, but they worked me 10 hours every day m-f with surprise half-shifts on the weekends sometimes with maybe a few hours notice, so it sucked. id be willing to do it again if i work half as much, or if i can just find a call center job that i can VPN. i dont really want to interact with people outside work so i dont need budget for clubbing and whores, i just kind of want to play video games, go on nightwalks, and drink.
>>
>>2650635
Vn is dirt fucking cheap for now still but thry just made it harder to stay long term
>>
>>2650635
Dunno about any other countries but I'm teaching English in Vietnam and I'm not overworked at all and my budget is comfy. I make more than I spend even without trying to be cheap. I don't pay hookers but I get laid left and right just meeting girls on the apps. I can't overstate how much it helps to learn the language, even if you can't actually communicate effectively in it. It gets them wet that you even try. Most people don't.

can you get antibiotics OTC too?
>>
>>2650794
Yes it's very easy to self-medicate for STDs since that's obviously why you're asking.
>>
>>2650876
Actually no I've got a stomach infection and the doctors in my country are fucking idiots. I also want to take a vacation so I thought about self-medicating while on it.
Need Amoxicillin and maybe another antibiotic for general infections to make a killer-combo. Anything comes to mind?
>>
>>2650877
Nah bro lol I don't know, but I'm sorry for your situation. Why's your doctor at home unable to help? Even an idiot doctor should be more useful to you than a random 4chan retard like me.
>>
>>2650880
Idk they're just doing all kinds of tests and can't find anything so they say "ugh it's all in your head anon you're too much stressed". I had a dental treatment and they gave me Amoxicillin which was the only thing that helped so far but it was just for a couple of days. I'm thinking full two-weeks with another antibiotic that targets the stomach area should do it. And if it kills me then I'll just start raw-dogging Cambodian hawkers until the bitter end.
>>
>>2650883
Do you actually have travel arrangements? If you have time before you leave, why not see another doctor?
>>
>>2645717
Cambodia is thailands garbage dump, imagine thinking you're "winning" by being there.
>>
>>2650888
>Do you actually have travel arrangements?
Fuck no I was thinking going in November it's too hot over there right now
>why not see another doctor?
I'm doing a final test next month, they want to shove a fucking tube with a camera down my throat and see what's going on in the stomach. If I don't get my antibiotics after that then I'm afraid it's self-medicating and raw-dogging time. I mean you see the way indians eat and they seem to be fine.
>>
>>2650894
Nigga I think it's hot as fuck in Cambodia all the time. I'm in Hanoi and we have winter here but outside of northern Vietnam it's full tropical. I was in Thailand in June and July and I enjoyed myself. Don't let it stop you.

>>2650889
Poor shitholes are unironically really fun places to be. I haven't visited Cambodia yet but that's basically the whole appeal.

Only ever been to Thailand. Is it much different?
>>
>>2650899
Oh sorry didn't noticed you were in Vietnam
Well same question how different is it from Thailand
>>
>>2650906
I haven't been there yet either, so I can't say for sure, but I think the climate is like Thailand or southern Vietnam. Hot as balls all the time.
>>
>>2650908
Very different. I love both places but they're not at all the same. Most normies and coomers seem to prefer Thailand but some people (and I'm one of them) really do love Vietnam. It's a beautiful country with beautiful women. It's a little bit weirder than Thailand but that's part of the charm. The food isn't everybody's thing but it's definitely mine.

Most "Thai" people that is, the Central Thai or Siamesei, are actually genetically Khmer and Mon mixed with Burmese. Genetic studies show they don't have actual Thai blood, even though they speak the language (ignoring the ones who are descended from Chinese).

Kino. I want to eat BBQ squirrel and drink snake whiskey with them.
>>
>>2652269
that snake whisky is nasty as fuck and I blame it for my erectile dysfunction.
>>
>>2652271
Oh yeah? What does it taste like? More curiously, why would it give you ED? Does Viagra help? I don't have actual ED but I'm in my early 40s and my erection quality isn't what it used to be. But if I pop 25mg of that stuff, I've got a boner I could rob a bank with.
>>
>>2652274
I was joking but yes, think of how nasty thai whisky is and add some more nasty points and then you'll get close to the snake whisky. it is a gimmick for tourists or perhaps dumb asians who think it gives them power. I am early 40s also, and just came back from thailand. boner works but seems to require constant stimulation and can get soft in the time taken to get from the mouth to the pussy. I might have to just get in shape or get some viagra.. some thai pussies are so tight so you really need a strong erection.
>>
>>2652276
You won't regret checking out the Viagra, my brother boomer. Give it a go. It comes in 50mg and 100mg. Maybe it's available in 25mg somewhere but I don't know. I just buy 50 and break them in half. Start small like that and see how it goes.
>>
>>2652271

Any kind of animal they throw in the alcohol will kind of make it smoother, so theoretically it tastes better with the snake than without it.

There's something they do that's more fun than snake whisky though. It's called jar whisky, where they put a big jar of whisky with a bunch of straws in it and everybody has to compete to get it down.
>>
>>2652326
Your not supposed to drink the snake whiskey, it's just in alcohol to preserve it, it's supposed to just be an ornamental thing

Retard.

So many braless euros here in Siem Reap. Some of them are alright. But many fatties as well.

I regret Viagra/Cialis every time I've taken it. I get awful rheumatoid like aches from Cialis, and Viagra gives me a headache. These are common side effects so it's not like I'm the odd one out.

They work in a pinch but I would caution against becoming a frequent user. Erectile dysfunction is supposedly a reliable indicator of atherosclerosis, so it's probably a good idea to clean up the diet, get that LDL and weight down and enjoy better sex as a result instead of trying to force the situation with drugs
>>
>>2653911
>lifestyle changes
>just pop a pill
One of these is a lot easier and more appealing than the other.
About your case, though, what was your Viagra dose? 25mg is small and enough for a good boner. 50mg gives me a headache too but it's unnecessary.
>>
>>2653911
They both give me side effects but Viagra is short lived (though worse as far as side effects) as are the beneficial effects so I prefer Viagra to Cialis.

Cialis if you can tolerate it has excellent daily use cases. It's a vasodilator that also has a tendency to increase free test levels by around 10-20%. I just have to be careful drinking heavy on it because it can drop me into low blood pressure if I have used it daily.

All fags who talk about Cambodia being "super cheap" have never provided evidence for their claims.

Everything seems completely comparable in price to Thailand at a much lower quality. There's youtube vids on the subject and the Cambodia fags always get BTFO.

I don't understand the autism around Cambodia for the /realtraveler/ meme-people. Just because a place is more dirty and less civilized doesn't mean it's better. You should be going to India if that's the case.

I'll just continue assuming Cambodia fags are pedophiles which is the secret reason they try to attack the massively superior Thailand.

Laos was great. Rural villages, rugged mountain regions, beautiful limestone karst formations and huge caves. Obviously poorer and less developed than Thailand so you have trash, less infrastructure, and fewer services but also even cheaper than Thailand (ie. decent hotel rooms for $5-10 USD). Lots of folks living in sheet metal shacks. The people were friendly and not scamming or giving aggressive sales pitches. I'd recommend renting a motorcycle and touring around the areas near Thahkek and Pakse. Vang Vieng was quite touristy, especially with 18-25 crowd, but I had a great time there too.

if you have never been to cambodia why do you speak there are no other places than phnom penh, siem reap and sihanouk and all scam oriented you can find a lot of good provincial cities in thailand in isan or even in fucking chonburi/rayong/chanthaburi.

Friendly reminder also in cambodia they use dollars but if its scratched a little bit they will refuse to accept it, i had many situation where I withdrew money from ATM and they still wouldnt accept it. It's the worst country after India. Slanted eyed pajets tiers.

Are cambodians the indios of Asia? They look like it, I've even heard they share ancestry with Indians. It's interesting to see the mashups of race and how certain races came to be. So are cambodians the OGs of southeast Asia?

>I thought Thailand was the country for that kind of stuff
Hasn’t been for decades. It’s been a middle-income country since the 90s, and an upper-middle-income country since c. 2010, and that shit is the product of severe poverty. And Cambodia has actually done a surprisingly competent job at cleaning up its act regarding that kind of evil. For one, the sleaziest brothel district in town, where many of the proprietors didn’t exactly check the IDs of their employees, was completely razed and redeveloped, although that had less to do with morality and more to do with real estate speculation—hookers are bad for property values. But international pressure and cash and campaigns have improved the moral situation, too—it’s one of very few areas where international development money spent in Cambodia wasn’t completely wasted. Nowadays when perverts try to pick up street urchins, people call the cops. And cab drivers/hotels/other venues sure as hell aren’t going to let them in.

That’s the World Bank’s assessment, not my personal opinion. I’m very old, and have been living in Thailand on and off since 1989. It is very clearly no longer the developing country it was back then. Wealth is insanely uneven, and poverty has crept back up slightly in the last five or six years, but it’s not all that poor overall. The Thai economy is the second-largest in ASEAN after Indonesia, and serves as an “anchor” propping up the far weaker economies of Laos and Cambodia.

It's not even really debatable that Thailand is a far more developed country than Cambodia just in the quality of public services and infrastructure and is much more developed industrially and commercially. It's obvious if you've been to that region, the contrast is stark.
>>
>>2654513
>Thailand is a far more developed country than Cambodia
Of course, nobody would dispute this. You said upper middle income, though.
>>
>>2654514
That's actually a different anon but upper middle income doesn't mean like "upper middle class" if that's what you're thinking.

High income countries are like Australia, Japan, US, even places like France and Spain.
Middle income countries are like Mexico, Brazil, the Philippines and Vietnam are lower middle income country.
Low income countries are like Haiti and most African countries.

>Go tell that to Myanmar and a hundred other countries.
Burmese, Thai, and Khmer come from three different language families—they do not share a common ancestor. All three have borrowed words from Sanskrit and Pāli, because they practice the same type of Buddhism, and Thai and Khmer have traded a lot of loanwords (first the Thais borrowed from the Khmers when Angkor was the big boss kingdom, then the other way around after Angkor fell), but the local languages are not genetically related.

There are Tai family languages spoken by minorities in Burma (and China, and formerly in India), also, but it doesn’t make the other languages the same.

Oh, and there are also Mon-Khmer languages spoken in Thailand, including dialects of Khmer that are partially mutually intelligible with the variety spoken in Phnom Penh, although they’re quite different, as I think an Anon above mentioned.

I learned Phnom Penh Khmer, and people in Surin laughed at it (because the word for “I” in Phnom Penh is only used by women in Khmer Surin, so I sounded like I was using she/her pronouns), but understood me, while I only barely got the gist of a lot of what they were saying.

Currently in Siem Reap, leaving in 3 days to Battambang, will stay there for 2-3 days, then continue to Kampot for another 2-3 days - will have rented motos in all 3 cities and want to explore any interesting destinations up to 1-hours drive max from the cities. Any suggestions from past experience that are worth driving out to?

I literally stay in leat touristic areas, mutts are truly braindamaged, stay in your mom's basement and pay ur debts goy.

There’s a small Angkorean ruin just outside of Battambang that is worth going to; it’s a nice contrast from Angkor Wat because, at least when I was there a few years back, it was very quiet. My wife and I were the only tourists on site. And it’s barely restored—still mostly ruin.

I also recommend Bokor Hill Station, but I think it’ll be at least a little more than an hour from Kampot on a little moto; takes at least a full hour in a car, or a bit more in traffic. It’s only 40something kilometers, but it’s largely on a winding, narrow hill road.
>>
>>2647723
Note that if you do choose to read The King Never Smiles, you’ll want to make sure to do it before you get to Thailand, and remember not to bring it with you, just in case—the book is illegal in Thailand, and the author became persona non grata in the Kingdom, convicted in absentia of lese majeste offenses.

Honestly probably nothing will happen to you if you do bring it in, but if someone official somehow caught you with it, you would get in at least some trouble.

It’s an interesting and fairly well-written book, although I think he gets some things wrong—I think he misunderstands a lot about the revolution of 1932 and the Promoters who were behind it, among other things. But I think he’s got some valuable insights into other stuff.

I went to Cambodia last year with my Thai gf. It was good. Phnom Penh roads are dangerous and third world as fuck tho. Worse than Thailand.

We flew up to Siem Reap and walked around Angkor Wat. It was awesome. Siem Reap is FAR more tourist friendly than the capital. Went to back to Phnom Penh and checked out Tuol Sleng the old school turned into Khmer Rouge prison camp. It was interesting. Gf could not stomach anymore Genocide stuff so we could not go to one of the Killing Fields at Cheong Ek.


Most important thing is to bring US dollars. 300 dollars to spend will get you far.

Well sure as long as you do not get killed by car. To Thai drivers, road laws are suggestive guidelines. To Cambodian drivers in Phnom Penh, they do not exist. People just park in the middle of the fucking pavement/sidewalk and you have to walk in the road to get around.


I got catcalled by Sex workers from a brothel in Phnom Penh (hello handsome man! Come to my room!) gf was not happy.
Saw a fair few old fat white guys walking around. Always feels sus. Lots of signs in the Siem Reap airport about reporting suspected child prostitution. Disturbing.

Apparently like 15-20 years ago it was absolutely fucked. Kids walking around offering foreign tourists a blowjob in exchange for dollars. Dead people in the streets. Thank god it is a lot nicer now.


If by based you mean you can do shit that you could not do elsewhere, then apparently there are Cambodian Army bases where you can pay soldiers to let you fire an RPG at a cow and shit like that. Never did that myself and tho.

And if you rent a bike and get into any kind of accident with a local, if you're not too injured, run. According to Khmer logic, it's their country and you shouldn't be there, therefore it's your fault no matter what, even if it's 100% on them. And if the local is injured, a mob will gather around and beat and rob you.

So what are the actual TEFL salaries like here? I know the meme of going here with no degree and a criminal record and all, but I have a Bachelor's degree, clean record, and I see they have a CELTA program there. Could I feasibly make around $2k a month? A lot of the info I'm finding says around 1k but it's either from people with just high school or from years ago.
Is it possible to just get into one of those Cambodian "international schools" and get experience there for a few years before getting a gig at a more legit one in another country? I really don't feel like continuing college for more debt and teaching in some ghetto trash school in America for experience and barely be able to pay my rent and loans, when I could just do it abroad for half the hours and lower the CoL.
>>
>>2660591

afaik the only places where you'll make something decent teaching engrish like this is korea or china (and probably japan). a poor country like cambo isn't going to give you shit for salary. you are asking basically for 10x their wages. that means you'd be making 10x what your boss makes.

Azithromycin could work. You can get antibiotics easily in Thailand without a prescription. They're only uptight about stimulants and depressants.

If you do go for a hooker, raw dog or not, take 200mg doxycycline before or after. Not good for the gut but better than pissing glass.
