Hi Sam,
Glad to hear your thinking of starting a business here in Cambodia. You mention BKK1 and I also live in that area. Im American expat and have been living here in Cambodia for over 20 years. $3000/5000 seems a unrealistic figure for starting a cafe, especially if your thinking of renting a stall in the mall. That alone will probably cost you $5000 a month, at least in the bigger malls.

Wish you the best,


you're right, but I don't want to design a café as you imagined,just I want a small garden inside house and I can transfe to a warm and very simple cafe like some of the cafes are located in Hong Kong and Shanghai. With very low cost, and making very nice sandwiches, wraps, salads and coffee, really very simple.
