Everything you need and more to make your move to the Kingdom's Capital.
A great, simple to understand (and surprisingly humorous) guide to starting out in Cambodia. Gets all the essentials out of the way (like how to obtain visas, what to pack and what hard to find items to bring) then moves straight to restaurants, doctors, accommodation and all the other important stuff you'll need to know once you get there. The book also includes short sections on things like good tailors, finding employment, how much you should budget in the first month and the LGBT scene.
The result is a guide that dodges the commercialism of other guidebooks and talks to you like your best friend is showing you round their hometown, complete with personal happy snaps to illustrate points and random tips from the Author's own experience. Read this and you'll be well set up to land on your feet and walk like a local, not one of 2 Million tourists that have a Lonely Planet and never get off the beaten path. Nick - Brisbane, Australia
