  • From Spinning Chairs to Rollercoaster Rides

    Expat Advisory

    The smiles on the young Khmer faces were as wide and arching as Phnom Penh's Japanese Bridge.

They graciously accepted gifts, posed for photographs and played games with their newfound friends.

  • Off-road motor biking

    Expat Advisory

    Know your capabilities. Know your limits. Know the market.
    What do you want it for?

    If it's around town - swallow your pride and get a small scooter. If it's off roading in the provinces - it's a dirt bike.

    If you are going for a popular item like an AX-1 or a small scooter- expect that it will be stolen. Reason is these are closer to the ground than the slightly larger other off road motorbikes.

    Expat Advisory

    Okay, with your guide to stupidity ruling the roost, what does the family ride?

    Well, like most of Phnom Penh, the Child-bride's first bike was a Daelim Citi 100. But not just any Citi, this was a Chosen Ilbo. Any Korean speakers out there want to tell me what that means? It was bought off a mate so he'd have some cash to return to the UK with and was sold when we needed some cash for the baby's clinic bills (Luckily all of yours truly's bikes were already in varying states of disassembly and therefore unsaleable!) It was a semi-auto 4-speed with a front drum brake and a motodop's oblong seat, like every other Daelim.

  • When a Picture is not Worth 1000 Words

    EAS Staff

    A picture of the dead body of a young female traffic accident victim lying on the street. Is this an image from one of Cambodia's infamously graphic local newspapers? No, it is page 5 of the November 16 English-language Phnom Penh Post, and the editorial decision to use it has outraged many in the expatriate community.
