I think Numbeo needs to clarify what international schools are. In Phnom Penh, there are 2 kinds. One where there is proper curriculum and certified teachers for that curriculum with prices starting are almost $2,000/month. Another kind is some second rate school missing all kinds of certification and hire Anglo looking expats with no qualifications where almost the entire school is Cambodian and simply slap on the word "international" in the school banner and costs about $700/month at most.

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.

Prices are out of date or are for westerners who must live exactly as they do at home.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
Site survey engieering manager for mecahnical and electrical jobs -- per day cost or monthly cost?
#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.
