The Cambodia guide

Latest articles

In recent years, more and more young tourists have turned their alcohol-fuelled attention away from the Thai islands, to Cambodia's coastal towns. Although the largest town of Sihanoukville has a reputation of being a party place (with a seedy side), there are still corners of charm and nearby stretches of sand that haven't been claimed by the crowds.

The town of Siem Reap is most renowned for being the gateway to the iconic temples of Angkor, which are a source of national pride and a point of pilgrimage for many Cambodians. These temples have also inspired and featured in films, such as The Jungle Book and Tomb Raider, and have been attracting travellers in their droves over the past couple of decades.

When it comes to expat living, Phnom Penh has it all. Thanks to an influx of foreign investment over the past decade, many western amenities have popped up across the city, making the capital even more popular with the expat crowds. Read this article to find out more about finding a job in the Penh.

Opportunities are aplenty for foreigners who fall in love with Cambodia after visiting this magical kingdom, or who've heard tales and dream of experiencing its vibrant culture. Whether you're a bartender or a financial adviser, you're highly likely to find something that fits your needs, your experience and your qualifications.

Before you start work in Cambodia, it's a good idea to learn about Khmer culture to help you to adapt to a different business environment. Working in Cambodia may involve learning certain rules of etiquette, from understanding the concept of face to learning how to do the sampeah to greet people and show your respect.
