It’s another hot day in Battambang, Cambodia and what better spot to linger than at a downtown sidewalk bistro with a platter of cheese and a chilled glass of French wine… Cambodia’s second largest city moves at a slow and lazy pace. Maybe it’s the heat, but I get the sense that Battambang is like this every day of the year. People stroll down the sidewalk, taking time to stop and chat along the way. No one is in a hurry.
Living in Cambodia Resources
Once famed as the “Pearl of Asia”, the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh, has lots to offer expats. You’ll find a stunningly low cost of living, bustling markets and a thriving food scene, set to a backdrop of colonial French architecture and Buddhist temples. Expat John Grady, 65, discovered all this and more when he moved here. It was Phnom Penh’s beauty, and its people’s warmth, which inspired him to start taking photos as a way to supplement his retirement income.
