Point №4... $20 per session in a kennel style soiled massage parlour in SRiep VS $30 per session in a clean room in HH (just an example)

BB, when you are talking about it, beng dirty--Are you referring to Sihanoukville or to the whole country? I was not in PP or Sihan and I did not find it particularly dirty.

About an hour east of there is KAMPOT. In the days when the French were the colonial power, it was their vacation town. On the coast, quiet, safe and enough foreigners there to make it interesting and has the best hospital in Cambodia, run by the Swiss and Americans. A significant number of expats who have moved there from Thailand.

Agree, Kampot is a cool little place, very laid back. Did a road trip there a couple of years ago, here are the photos:

I am talking Sihanoukville.

I found it disgusting. Another friend has relocated from Sihanoukville because of the dirt. An annual visitor who visits us and a friend in Sihanoukville can not wait to get to Hua Hin to get clean.

When I was there I remember piles of rubbish on every street corner, with many rats.

It did not make a good impression.

This is a photo from my centrally located hotel, which was representative of much of Sihanoukville.

Looks a bit like the old restaurant area by the temple in the Poonsuk Road! :wink: :D

Actually, I think the temple area in the Poonsuk Road looks quite attractive by comparison :cry:

Have been to both Phillys and Cambodia several times. Visa easier in both
6+ months visa is no longer easy in Cambodia, they've been changing the rules constantly in the last few months and confusing the hell out of everyone. It is still possible to get 3 months over and over again, no questions asked, but no one knows how long that will last.

So it seems the following:
Philippines
Cambodia
Costa Rica
At this time CR would be my No. 1, will have to do some more research, luckily no rush to finalize.
