Best social spots in Phnom Penh

Posted by Lisstarr on 21/12/2006 at 07:23

I am a 22yr old female who will be living in Phnom Penh for 9 weeks starting in early Jan. I will be both traveling and living on my own. I was hoping people could suggest bars and restaurants where I will easily be able to meet other travelers my age. Since I don't want to travel alone at night, places near the river (as opposed to the lake) would be appreciated! I would especially like to meet other back/flashpackers who I might be able to take some weekend trips to other locations in Cambodia ...

ATM withdrawals in Cambodia

Posted by TonyL on 22/12/2006 at 13:13

I have finally managed to get some definitive information on ATM withdrawals in Cambodia which could assist others. Those ATM's that accept overseas cards or Cirrus debit cards - very few but mostly in PP or Siem Reap - such as those at ANZ Royal Bank branches, have a physical limit on the number of actual notes that they can dispense at one time. That limit is 40 notes. The largest denomination $US notes that ANZ machines dispense is $50. So the most that you can get out in one withdrawal i ...

I will be in Phnom Penh for 9 weeks from January to Mid March. I am going on my own and will be the only international intern at the place I will be working at. I am deciding between staying in an apartment on my own or staying in a hotel (either Golden Gate or Bodhi tree).
