RE: Phnom Penh, Cambodia info needed.
Well seeing as no one on here is offering up any information on what guesthouses or hotels you can take girls too there's not much I could have done. I wasn't to know until I got cockblocked I couldn't take girls back to that particular place.

How many guesthouses did you actually stay in, wasn't just that sketchy one with bed bugs where drug addicts pros hung around? Of course you can fuck girls in there it's sketechy as fuck. Some of us like to stay in places a little less shit than that and fuck girls who aren't whores cracked out on methamphetamine.

Congrats that you banged 5 whores in your first week, a 60 year old sex tourist can do that too but I didn't come here to fuck whores. I'm living in Bangkok if I wanted to fuck whores I'd just do it there. I'd rather pursue normal girls which is what I'm doing. Again I got cockblocked by hotel security last night at a different place when I tried to take a waitress back.

Man. you must be frustrated NOT getting laid again last night and you resort to name calling and talking shit to a guy who does get laid in PP. I thought you were a cool guy and i tried to help you in previous posts but now i just feel sad for you.

In Holland we say: a donkey doesn't hit his toe on the same stone twice. I guess you are dumber than a donkey because you made the same mistake even after some one gave you advice on what to do.
You had all fucking day to find a hotel room to take a girl too. ALL DAY !!! The first thing a traveling playa should do; find a place to bang.
You fail to do that in a city like PP where there are shitloads of guesthouses.
How can you show up at a guesthouse or hotel and not get a room for two ??? A hotel wants to make money so they will rent you a double room for the night. I wonder about this. Where do you bring these girls, the Ritz ??

Maybe you get so worked up about it because you know you're dumb for making those mistakes again, knowing that i bang girls in 4 dollar rooms while you probably have a nice aircon room in some fancy hotel and can't bring a girl there. Has i even crossed your mind that the night guard could be bribed with 2 or 3 dollars because he doesn't make any money and was probably looking for a bribe? Did the girl not suggest another place to go ? Did she try to help you in any way ? Did you even ask her about it or did you just said goodbye like some beta dude and went to your room to jerk off ?.
Maybe you should change your name to Betatravel because you should like a true beta to me. You talk about being cultural and give me shit for getting laid with pros ( typical Captain save a ho - white knight behavior)

For you're information : i was staying in a guesthouse at lake side with 95 % foreign backpackers as guests. Nearly all of them were not getting laid with the pros around without having to pay. Your argument about 60year old tourists is bullshit because even most guys 10 years younger than me where having trouble getting laid there.

Good luck with having another SEX-less night tonight and don't hurt your wrist jerking off. I heard some restaurants have excellent rooftops to bring girls to so you can spend lots of money on them without getting laid but at least you have good music like The Pixies or Radiohead.

Dont EVER ask me for advice again.

This is the first thing you have to do arriving in ANY new country or guesthouse/hotel : Ask if you can bring a girl back to your room.

For your information and to my defense to your idiotic statement : Out of the 13 girls i fucked in Cambodia ( 9 cambodian, 1 laos, 2 vietnamese and 1 thai ) only half were (ex)pro's and only one used recreational drugs sometimes. One girl even was in the Miss Sihanoukville 2010 contest, i was there with her at the contest and she spend 400 dollars on a holiday with me there while i only spend 150 dollar in that week. I stayed in her apartment too.

The Thai girl had a very good job and owned a luxury apartment where i stayed several days. She had an apartment with aircon,kingsize bed, a mac book and 1 iphone + blackberry and large flatscreen. (this was 2009 when that stuff was still very expensive on Cambodia)

I say it again : i never paid any money to these girls, not did i buy them gifts/present/dresses whatever or took them to fancy restaurants. If they spend the whole day with me i would of course buy them some food and drinks in the guesthouse.

Man, what is with everyone arguing lately? Both Neil and Alpha are solid contributors here, let's keep the arguing for the fuckwits on here who don't know shit and offer no value.

I move that all disputes between respected members should be settled with who can collect the most naked girl pics holding a RooshVForum.com sign.

I was trying to help him out since i stayed in PP for 5 weeks. He insulted and looked down on me in post #24 saying this : I'd rather have locals come pick me up on their bikes at my hotel and drive me round to cool places than hang about with whores in Heart of Darkness.

I don't have to to take that from him.

I give him a little comment back and he starts talking about me like this:

Quote:ow many guesthouses did you actually stay in, wasn't just that sketchy one with bed bugs where drug addicts pros hung around? Of course you can fuck girls in there it's sketechy as fuck.

Again I got cockblocked by hotel security last night at a different place when I tried to take a waitress back.

Again, i don't have to take crap like that and i have the right to defend myself against his idiotic claims.

I said what i have to say about it and that's enough for me. I'm done with this guy. He wouldn't be getting more of my advice nor will i ever back him up in something.

To me this argument is closed.

( I need to do some ZEN meditation or something, i'm way too bothered with other people opinions. Maybe i need to open a thread about having a short fuse)

Wow, is that what pissed you off. I knew something had but didn't realise it was that. Actually that was not aimed at you. I was just stating that I didn't really want to go to heart of darkness and deal with pros. The last few weeks in Thailand I had 2 different situations where seemingly normal girls, who I'd made it clear to I wasn't looking for p4p if that was there thing, turn out to be pros. One in the morning after I'd fucked her asked for money, the other asked for it as we were leaving the club. Both had clearly stated they were not pros earlier in the night. From what I've heard about Heart of Darkness I'd just be dealing with whores and liars all night.

Quote:How can you show up at a guesthouse or hotel and not get a room for two ??? A hotel wants to make money so they will rent you a double room for the night. I wonder about this. Where do you bring these girls, the Ritz ??

I've had a double room both nights. These hotels obviously just don't like guys bringing girls back. There's plenty hotels in BKK that are the same, some even close to the sex tourist areas of BKK that have a STRICT no guest policy or some just a no THAI PERSON policy. Some will even turn away single male travellers because it's suspected that's what they'll be up to.

Quote:Maybe you get so worked up about it because you know you're dumb for making those mistakes again, knowing that i bang girls in 4 dollar rooms while you probably have a nice aircon room in some fancy hotel and can't bring a girl there.

Did you even ask her about it or did you just said goodbye like some beta dude and went to your room to jerk off ?.

I'm glad you could bang in your 4 dollar crack den. I still wouldn't stay in one. I offered the guards on both occasions money ($10 which is half the price of the room) as a 'joiner fee' they weren't interested. Doubt it's worth their jobs, $10 one night only to get sacked the next for breaking the hotel rules. Both these places the reception is right at the door so couldn't even sneak a girl out discreetly in the morning. The girls didn't know anywhere else to go as they aren't pros so they probably don't make regular trips to hotels with foreigners. I'm not so desperate for sex I'm going to run all over town looking for a place to have sex. I get laid plenty in Thailand so it's not big deal for me to fuck a Cambodian girl, I've got the flag already.

Quote:Dont EVER ask me for advice again

My pleasure. I would never listen to your advice anyway so if I asked in the past it must have been a mistake.

Quote:One girl even was in the Miss Sihanoukville 2010 contest, i was there with her at the contest and she spend 400 dollars on a holiday with me there while i only spend 150 dollar in that week. I stayed in her apartment too.

Yeah and in the bar I was in last night one of the girls had an iphone 4, designer hand bag and just spend $200 on dental work, when I asked how she afforded all this on $80 a month wages she said she gets rich foreigners she meets out here to send her cash. She spends some time with them when they come out here on holiday, she claims she doesn't even have sex with them, suckers them in by telling them she loves them and wants to marry them and they go home thinking they've hit the jackpot and send her cash.

Quote:I say it again : i never paid any money to these girls, not did i buy them gifts/present/dresses whatever or took them to fancy restaurants. If they spend the whole day with me i would of course buy them some food and drinks in the guesthouse

I'm not sure what the going rate out here for a pro is but just you buying some food & drinks for them probably works out about the same if someone straight up paid them for sex.

They tried that no guest shit on me or face control in the DR. My friend lives there and we were going up to my patio to chat up some online girls on my laptop and the security dude says hold on. I went HAM on him in english (he spoke it). I really don't know who these people think they are.

Any way Alpha, rent a place where you have freedom asap at all costs.

Neil, Chill out there's no reason for this stuff to upset you even though I find it entertaining.

RE: Phnom Penh, Cambodia info needed.
I found a place yesterday that was fine with it and took a girl back last night. Met her on tagged.com and it was clear she was planning on staying with me from the get go, she turned up with a bag with change of clothes, toiletries etc. Told her to meet me in a bar where I'm friendly with the waitress staff and when she came in I was flirting shamelessly with one of them, making innuendos and messing around. This seemed to really piss of the girl I'd just told to come meet me but it worked a treat, as soon as we left the bar and jumped in a tuk tuk to another area she was all over me. We ended up in Street 51 where Heart of Darkness, Pontoon and St Tropez is. St Tropez seems very out of place, all the bars in that area are bar girl places and then St Tropez had fancy cars pulling up to the car park and seemed more HiSo. We just went to one bar, that was open 24hrs, playing pool until quite late. The security guard at my current place actually gave me a wink and shook my hand as I brought the girl back.

Quote:Any way Alpha, rent a place where you have freedom asap at all costs.

Only here for a few days before hitting the beach. Didn't even know I was defo coming here until a week ago so had little time to sort things out especially with Songkran being on in Thailand the weekend before I left. It's fine now, I've got a place that are OK with it.

RE: Phnom Penh, Cambodia info needed.
The girls here are annoying me now. Yesterday I had the girl I slept with the other night calling and texting me all day asking where, I was, what I was doing, who I was with etc. I stopped replying to calls or texts and at night went out to my local bar and was sitting around chatting to the waitresses, I get another call from the girl but ignore it. 15 minutes later she turns up at the bar asking why I'm ignoring her and throwing a tantrum. After about 10 minutes of drama she leaves in a bad mood then sends me dozen more messages. Ignored.

Today another girl I met texts me and asks if I can top up her phone as she's no money for credit. I ignore that. Later another girl calls and asks if I want to meet her tonight after she finishes work so I make tentative plans to do so. An hour later she sends me a text asking if I'll give her $100 if we have sex tonight. Glad I found out that was her game before meeting her as she'd be sorely dissapointed and no doubt more drama. Can't be bothered with all these sketchy girls and their bullshit, I get hardly any drama in Thailand from most of the women I meet but it's been the complete opposite here. I'm heading for the beach tomorrow to get away from this city, it'll get on my nerves if shit like this keeps happening.

RE: Phnom Penh, Cambodia info needed.
I've had a Thai girl call me about 45 times in the past two and a half days after I cut her off. Some of the SEA girls get attached and super crazy very quickly.

In 6ish weeks when I have to leave Thailand for my Visa I think I might hit Phnom Penh for a week if I can get a decent plane ticket price. Did you fly, Alpha? If so, how much were the tickets?

I flew with Air Asia, after taxes and all their bullshit charges it was 8,000Baht return but it's usually a bit cheaper. The day I left was more expensive than every other day that week, possibly because it was the day after Songkran.

Yeah I have had Thai girls get attached to me after us going out once or thinking because we had sex we're now boyfriend and girlfriend but I've never had any of them start turning up unannounced stalking me or any girls I've met anywhere apart from an after hours club ask me for money / things.

Why don't you take a bus? it will save you lots of money and you can actually see a lot on the way there.

Well, on second thought that works for most countries but Cambodia is a pretty flat country, there's not much to see on the way there. have you see Angkor Wat yet ? Otherwise make a stop over there.

Takes 8 hours by bus from Bangkok. Its four hours to the border. I paid 217 baht (5 dollar) in 2010 and 4 hours by bus to Siem reap ( 9 or 10 dollars) and another 8 dollars to PP. thats a big difference from 8000 baht which i like 250 bucks.

RE: Phnom Penh, Cambodia info needed.
I fucking hate buses and trains. I'd much rather fly if I can find a decent price. I found some for just under 4,000 baht round trip, so not too bad. Otherwise, I might just do the day trip to renew my visa and not go to PP at all. It's not a must go for me, just thought I might make a little side trip out of renewing my visa.

RE: Phnom Penh, Cambodia info needed.
Go see Angkor Wat at Siem Reap if you haven't, it's incredible. The bus from Bangkok to PP is not recommended by anyone though, it usually takes about 12hrs+ often over 20hrs and it's scam central. They only charge 300baht for the trip which suckers people in then on route scam the fuck out of everyone, there's fake border guards demanding money to exit Thailand, fake border guards asking for money for Cambodian visas, the bus often 'breaks down' but hasn't really broken down they just want you to spend a night at the guesthouse the bus company owns. There's websites dedicated to this whole debarcle, it's featured in all the guidebooks and travel websites too and I've spoken to several travellers who got suckered in. You''ll read stories of people being scared into staying in particular guesthouses by the owners saying that the Khmer Rouge still operate in the area and it's not safe to leave. It's a joke and the Governments, police and border guards all know about it and don't care, probably all profiting from it.

If you took a Government run bus over a tourist one you'd avoid the fake break down nonsense but unless you're totally clued up you might still get scammed and over charged over the visas, if yóu've found a flight for 4,000B then snap it up. Who is that with, Air Asia? I coudn't find prices like that though left it quite late to book.

You can still do this route by yourself like i did twice. Its easy.
Take a bus from Mochit bus station in Bangkok to the border which takes 4 hours and cost about 220 baht (in 2010). They will drop you of at the busstation on the Thai side of the border. Share a tuk tuk with some others to the border and don't let them fool you at the "visa" office they stop on the way the way there. I was taken there and demanded to take me further to the border or the tuk tuk driver won't be paid. When he didn't listen i said scam to every other tourist who had been brought there, the tuktuk driver saw he was missing out on scam money and took me directly to the border.

Buy a 20 dollar visa at the border and make sure you have dollars otherwise you have to pay 1000 baht which is a lot more. Have two pasport pictures ready. Once you cross the border, hawkers will try to get you in a bus to Siem Reap or PP. Find the best one and haggle so you get a good price. There is a bus station across the Cambodian border and they have lots of rides every day. Two bus operators are there.

It a bit of adventure but thats what traveling is about. It will save you lots of money on flights. The roads in Cambodia aren't as bad as they used to.

Just make sure you don't fall for the busscam on Kao san road and you'll be fine.

The tickets were with Air Asia for the middle of June. They were only certain days though, mid week I think. Most of the days were 2,500-3,000 plus taxes and fees.

RE: Phnom Penh, Cambodia info needed.
Í'm done with sitting on buses for whole days for adventure because thats what travelling is apparently about. Did 24hr +journeys in South America enough to drive a man mad. I'd rather spent some cash on a flight, small amount of time wasted, often not that expensive (especially in SE Asia) and just get to where I need to be quickly. For me travelling is the worst part of travelling. Get me to my destination and let me enjoy it!

If Rio can get a ticket for 3,000B thats a good price, snap it up instead of doing full day bus journeys with tons of scams thrown in. Even if you're clued up on how to avoid the scams you stillhave to deal with the bullshit. Flying to cambodia and getting a visa on arrival is so easy these days, they've streamlined it much easier than before.

RE: Phnom Penh, Cambodia info needed.
Headed to PP in a few hours. Any new updates would be appreciated. Going to gamble for a night and figure out if I hit Vietnam or back to Thailand. Might hit the beach up tomorrow. Do want a Cam flag but seems like I would have to shore or try to smash a hiso girl. I got no love with hiso girls in BKK but really didnt game at the malls or university. If I stay for a few days I'll drop an updated datasheet.

RE: Phnom Penh, Cambodia info needed.
At River House now peacocking in my orange photograher pants. Waitresses seems scared. Its a cockfest tonight. It is Sunday. Im kinda pissed off because of Naga. 20 min on blackjack and no live poker. I see everybody with 3K in chips like it was nothing. I lost 100 in ten minutes and left. Migh try Heart of Darkness or might go back to the room. I think I will stay as long as my bottle of Gret Goose last. Tomorrow daygame and see where it gets me. So far I am not feeling this city. We will see.

RE: Phnom Penh, Cambodia info needed.
Is Cambodia a dodgy country or what?!? I've only been here only half a day where I bought a sim card at the airport and the guy was going to charge me twice as much for it (Riel to US conversion amount). I checked online at XE where he gave me the correct amount in the end.

Before that, I exchanged money at the airport where I noticed the exchange rate was very low where I paid $50US from $200US (THB to Riel 110, online it's 134). It was at the CAB Bank booth where the paper she gave me has a contact number on it below hence I think I should complain and maybe get some money back? These no way these a $50 difference...

Is this normal here???

Yes, both these things happened to me as well in Poipet and Siem Reap, plus other scams.

About 40 years ago every educated person in the country was brutally murdered. The country then entered a 14 year war/ occupation by their neighbor Vietnam, in which tens of thousands more people were killed and hundreds of thousands displaced. The same guy has been president for 35 years. One dollar buys you 4,000 of their currency. Cambodia has been through some shit.

I'm 43. Everyone my age was 4' 10" from malnutrition. There was no one older than me. They all took a pickaxe to the back of the head standing on the lip of their mass grave.

It's a hard place. I went in like you, unprepared. But there are beautiful people, beautiful places there. 22 year old couples in the park on their scooters watching the sunset while bats with wings 3 feet wide fly around the trees. The young people will rebuild the country and it'll be OK again. For now, if I ever go back, I'm keeping a better eye out for the kind of shit you describe and watching my ass.

It is a tourist trap staffed by IQ 60-70 people.

Sihanoukville is the worst place I've been to in East Asia. Corrupt and dangerous, but really just meant for mainland Chinese tourists at this point, which is another reason to stay away.
