What is a typical expat home or apartment like in Koh Rong Sanloem?

"A typical expat home or apartment in Koh Rong Sanloem, is often a blend of traditional Khmer architecture and modern amenities. These homes are usually made of wood and bamboo, with thatched roofs, and are elevated off the ground to protect against flooding during the rainy season. They often have open floor plans, with large windows and doors to allow for natural light and air circulation. The interiors are typically furnished with locally made furniture, often crafted from bamboo or rattan. Modern amenities such as air conditioning, Wi-Fi, and hot water are usually available, although they may not be as reliable as in more developed countries. Kitchens are often equipped with basic appliances, such as a refrigerator and a gas stove, but may lack an oven, which is not commonly used in Cambodian cooking. Many expat homes in Koh Rong Sanloem also have outdoor living spaces, such as a porch or a balcony, where residents can relax and enjoy the tropical climate. Some homes may even have a small garden or a yard. Despite the rustic appearance, these homes can be quite comfortable and offer a unique living experience that blends local culture with expat conveniences. However, it's important to note that living conditions can vary greatly depending on the specific location and the budget of the expat," remarked one member in Koh Rong Sanloem.
