Moving to Cambodia

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Jan 06, 2024

Summary: Many expats and digital nomads move to Cambodia for its low cost of living, warm climate, and friendly people. Additionally, the country offers a wide range of cultural experiences and activities. People can find a place to live in Cambodia by searching online for rental properties, or by asking around in the local expat community. The most popular cities for expats and digital nomads in Cambodia are Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and Sihanoukville.

What do I need to know before moving to Cambodia?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Cambodia, they said:

"Cambodia is a beautiful and diverse country with a rich culture and history. Expats should be aware that the language spoken in Cambodia is Khmer, and it is important to learn some basic phrases before moving. Expats should also be aware that the cost of living in Cambodia is relatively low, but the quality of goods and services may not be as high as in other countries. Additionally, expats should be aware that the healthcare system in Cambodia is not as developed as in other countries, and it is important to have adequate health insurance. Finally, expats should be aware that the climate in Cambodia is tropical, with hot and humid weather year-round," commented one expat who made the move to Cambodia.
