That's the fourth Brit to die in Sihanoukville this year, and the third suicide.

And the sixth expat / tourist fatality in the city since the start of the year.

used to be
"no country for old men"
but Cambodia seems to be no country for any age

My experience, without saying anything about this person-

Many people come here because they have problems with themselves and think that going here will change something.

But wherever you go, there you are. You can not fix a problem by going to Cambodia.

Poor countrys attract some sort of people with problems who think beeing the rich guy in a poor country would make everything better. And oh the fools ive meet who never had a girlfriend or a friend at all in their lives. Then they come here and want people to kiss their ass because they are white. I try explain to them that no Khmer will like them unless they good people, money or not. But its no point.

Once again, nothing against this person. But its not a suprice with suicides here really. Some ppl realise that no, they cannot escape. And as they lack the ability to change themselves theres not many options.
