I might search again tomorrow after they have sold both seats available at this price. (typed 10 things, all bad/sarcastic at CP) so...biting my tongue. Reminds me of Spirit out of FL to Colombia 10 years ago

.http://business.inqu...dia’s-siem-reap

To launch its newest international route, CEB is offering P888 seats between Manila and Siem Reap from January 27 to 29 or until seats last. These are for travel from April 19 to May 31, 2012.

Exactly like Spirit did 10 years ago. But at least we have the facts now. Might try to find a flight tomorrow.

Just by the way, a one month TEFL course makes you a qualified teacher here. I met a guy who did the course in Chiang Mai for less than $100 and now he teaches English here for $2000 per month.


INCREDIBLY informative, Kenny.

I was wondering why you hadn't been on the forum for a while.

Seriously, thank you so much.

I know from experience that English teachers in Phnom Penh have a definite tendency to fluff up their earnings when they're talking to other barangs in the bars, or posting on internet forums. Most are on $10-12 an hour and few are getting more than $15. Quite a lot are also on fairly restricted hours too. The pay in Vietnam and Thailand is better. The pay also hasn't increased for years. The people who own the schools are the ones making the money out of English teaching in Cambodia, not the teachers. In past years enrolment and revenue has increased by an incredible amount but the wages have stayed the same.

Thanks Whippy.

The classrooms are horror shows from what a few peeps mentioned on another forum..

Still, it's not a career move.

Brandon asked an important question that I have overlooked, medical assistance.

From what I've seen it's about the same as Cebu, good, but not fantastic.
There are American clinics and well trained staff to be found here in PP but costs? I don't know. I would think that costs would be cheaper than Thailand (where they have woken up to all the spare cash we have) but about thesame as RP.

It would be worth keeping in mind that this is a far bigger city than most people would imagine. Do a Google map search and you'll see what I mean.
There are also a lot of big money local residents that returned after the genocide period and I'm sure they want top class medical help as much as we do
For members with kids there's Embassy Pediatrics run by American pediatrician Dr Sutton Whitaker, a doctor with 20 yeas working with rug rats.
Oh, and another big plus, no Jolly Bee..

I heard they opened up a KFC quite recently in Phnom Penh, after the last time I was there.

KFC's usually open in Asian countries before Mcdonalds. There was a KFC before a Mcdonalds in both Malaysia and Thailand.
