#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Prices are out of date or are for westerners who must live exactly as they do at home.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
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.

Orphanage is not a zoo!
Orphanage visits are organized by local mafia to get your tears and your money.
Not 10% of your gift will go to Orphans.
Don't believe me?
No problem but please just do this:
go for a drink at FCC on Sisowath, take a free sample of the "Phnom Penh Guide"
Just open it and check the official warning from Unicef and Cambodian government on this topic.
then, do what you want...
But enjoy Cambodia as a beautiful place I've lived 10 years in.
#Tom on Apr 26, 2014 :
Has anyone here been living in Jakarta? How does it compare to Phnom Penh in terms of cost of living (on average)?

Thanks.
#Linda Lotta on Apr 02, 2014 :
We are visiting an orphanage near Phnom Penh and I was wondering if someone has some knowledge how much items such as notebooks, pens, crayons, balls and jump-ropes cost in Phnom Penh?
#Mike on Jan 07, 2014 :
Hi there EK and all : first, thanks so much for this post - really informative and I appreciate the effort. I'll be moving to Cambodia this month sometime (January 2014) from Singapore; hopefully permanently. I've been living and working in SE Asia for almost 25 years but first time to Cambodia (I was saving it)
I'd love to meet up with anyone living there for a brewski and brain-pickin' session. I will be looking to find accommodation short term and long term (no expat gloryholes), maybe a job in TOEFLA teaching (am qualified) and / or working with NGO. I'm an eco consultant and the main reason for coming to Cambodia is to try and R&D and develop my UDD toilet system and / or my bamboo & earth build system - so, basically, looking to make new friends, network, find work of some sort and enjoy Cambodia. I've already got a couple of contacts with Habit for Humanity and Lien Aid but would love to make more ... if anybody belongs to a group where I may able to help out with ideas for development please let me know.
Anybody interested can search my site at http://eco1solutions.com and check out my stuff under "home" -
Best regards
