What is a typical expat home or apartment like in Kampong Thom?

"A typical expat home or apartment in Kampong Thom, is often a blend of traditional Khmer architecture and modern amenities. The homes are usually spacious, with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, a large living area, and a fully equipped kitchen. They often feature high ceilings and tiled floors, which help keep the home cool in the hot Cambodian climate. Many homes also have a balcony or a small garden area, providing a space for outdoor relaxation. The homes are usually furnished, with comfortable sofas, dining tables, beds, and wardrobes. Modern amenities such as air conditioning, Wi-Fi, and cable TV are typically included. The kitchen is usually equipped with a refrigerator, a gas stove, and sometimes a microwave or an oven. The homes are often located in safe, quiet neighborhoods, close to local markets, restaurants, and other amenities. Some expat homes may be located within gated communities, offering additional security. Despite being in a relatively rural province, many homes in Kampong Thom are surprisingly modern and comfortable, catering to the needs of expats. However, it's important to note that the standard of living can vary greatly depending on the specific location and budget. Some expats may choose to live in more modest accommodations, such as traditional wooden houses, while others may opt for more luxurious villas or apartments," explained one person living in Kampong Thom, Cambodia.
