Quality of Barangs

Postby PonyBoy » Fri Apr 20, 2018 9:14 am

So I have been looking into moving to Cambodia and a reoccurring theme that keeps coming up is the type of Barangs that choose to settle in the KOW.
Aside from volunteers and NGO workers, why does Cambodia attract the worst of the West? What exactly is it about the country that attracts the thieves, low lives and degenerates? Is it the easy and cheap women? Drug? Very curious.

Those categories aren't necessarily mutually exclusive. Plenty of volunteer low lives and NGO worker degenerates.

The question is, which category do you fall into?

The worst of the west. Would that be the ones who come here and complain about the dusty restaurants, the need for police to be sorting out bag snatchers so whities can walk around with their laptops and phones without a care, and where can they get the ingredients for their special diets? I don't know but I wish they would get frightened away.

So you are concerned that your desire to move to Cambodia means you are a dickhead?

Well you can't say that about Sihanoukville anymore as they've all moved to Kampot, Phnom Penh etc.

What exactly would be the best of the west? I have seen similar expat stereotypes in almost every 3rd world country I've been too. In 1st world countries we just call them citizens.

Are you already a member of the "worst of the west", dearest Ponyboy looking into the possibility to move to Cambodia/ My wife of 35 years and myself live very happily in Cambodia since early 1999 (children have gone through high school here and moved away in the meantime). They visit us every year in Cambodia. Does that in your limited view place them automatically into the category of the "worst of the west"?? We are quite ok here in Cambodia as long as we do run into twisted characters like you!!

He comes across as a judgemental prick and I doubt he's ever been here, he has a sensationalist tabloid - type view of the place.

Media bias! Boguns smashing ATMs and getting arrested for "pornographic dancing" make better stories than accountants purchasing watch winders for their automatic watch or eating out at Open Wine! :lol:
