I am planning to head out to Cambodia in December this year for an extended stay (currently open ended). I have had enough living and working in the UK and wanted a change.
Is there any advice you would give to someone a) before the leave, and b) once they have arrived?
My main queries currently are:
- what is it like to get accommodation in Phnom Penh?
- is it difficult to set up a bank account over there (I don't want to be paying international transfer fees too often)
- with Visas - should I just request a business Visa upon arrival, and can this still just be extended via travel agencies?
Any advice or tips you could give would be much appreciated. I spent the best part of a month in Cambodia while travelling a decade ago, but this is going to be a massive change for me!
