#TravelTellers on May 03, 2017 :
Since moving to PP 6 months ago, rents & food prices have increased substantially. While "local" rooms or tiny apartments for rent may run $150-300/month in outer areas, or $300-500 central, if you expect a "real" bathroom (instead of miniscule closet with shower nozzle on wall or "wet bathroom"), an airconditioner in the bedroom, expect to pay $600-3000/month for 1 BR, depending on location & facilities. Electricity is 30 cents per kwh, and using AC in bedroom at night, small fridge, one load per week in washer, and some lights, my electric bill is running $150/mo. Power outages, blackouts & brownouts are frequent in most areas. 1 kg boneless chicken breasts - $5.90 (Lucky Supermarket). 2 liter bottle of milk just went up to $5.50 at KiwiMart, $4.20-4.40 at Lucky. Swiss cheese - $30/kg & up. Stall food - 2 grilled chicken drumsticks & scoop of rice, $2.00.

#Khmer Guy on May 29, 2016 :
Prices are out of date or are for westerners who must live exactly as they do at home.

Bottled water: o.25 usd for 330 ml, ice cold from an orange tub.
Food: o.50 to $1 USD Street cart food is 2,000 to 4,000 riels for a meal in a takeaway styrene container.
Rent: Unfurnished rooms for rent are $60 to $110 per month with an ensuite bath and an aircon unit. You will walk the stairs. Pay 2.5x as much and get a place that looks western. Pay $800+ to live like an NGO Director.

Anyone can advise for the salary

#user on Apr 12, 2015 :
"Government must control everything..."
They tried that not long ago: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khmer_Rouge

To stay on topic: 3.5USD for a meal at an inexpensive restaurant? A foreign-run inexpensive restaurant, perhaps?
#Samedy on Feb 04, 2015 :
Totally wrong for some parts though, for example: Coke and Pepsi weren't that expensive. It's around $0.4 Thats it.
