The author also gives enough of an overview to the history and culture of Cambodia without making the reader lose interest and gives excellent suggestions for further reading. I appreciate her discussion of tourist orphanage volunteers. Although the expat audience is not the primary target of this problem, it is never the less best to get this information out wherever one can.
I'm not sure i would be that confident of the ice in Cambodia as the author suggests. I recently got very sick from something i consumed in the provinces and i suspect it was bad ice. The shaped ice is higher quality. If it's crushed ice, it may be from the cheaper ice that has lower standards. I drink a lot of kafie tik da koo, tik ka ( ice coffee with sweet milk ) But for anyone living here, you'll most likely start taking more risks. Anyway, keep the pepto bismol and immodium handy and enjoy your drinks.
The table of contents are in the back of the book. Maybe this will be corrected in updates.
This book wont solve all of the problems you might encounter, but it does offer a straight-forward explanation of what to expect as you make your move to this country. I would recommend this to anyone as a supplement to the already wonderful blog by Lina Goldberg!
In addition to enjoying "Move to Cambodia" as fantasy fodder, I've also been recommending it to my many friends who have 20- and 30-something kids living at home. Why not pack the youngsters off to the Kingdom of Wonder, where they can get a job and afford an apartment, instead of letting them molder in the parental basement indefinitely? Sounds like a win-win to me!
Sure you might find the same information on the Internet. But why bother? Lina has done the work and done it well.
If you're looking for resources and tips in one handy volume, it's not that expensive to pick up Lina's book and read through it in an hour or two. The value is in being able to refer to it when specific questions arise. All in all, I'm glad I bought it, and will be taking it with me when I move to Cambodia in a month.
