Opening a Guesthouse In Sihanoukville

Posted by jasmedia on 20/11/2006 at 18:14

Dear Fellow Travellers;

I'm interested in checking out real estate in Sihanoukville to turn into a guesthouse/bar/restaurant (or possibly buying a place already open.) If anyone knows any websites I can look to for information, please let me know. Thanks a bunch!

Hi Steve,

Welcome to Travelfish!

Buyer beware! No shortage of people who got their fingers burnt dabbling in Sihanoukville.

I'd suggest the messageboard over at Tales of Asia is a good place to start, and they've also got a classified section for business opportunities.

hi steve,the martin
buying property in snookyville is extremly tricky and dodgy. and the unexpected is always around:the german guy, who runs and owns the freedom guesthouse and bar/restaurant needed more than a year to fix the monthly bribe-money with the local police/mafia/officials and so on.

just rent a place, try your luck, never invest too much. if the paying gets higher than the earning-simply give up!
