Where should I setup a bank account in Koh Rong?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Koh Rong what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"Expats considering retirement in Koh Rong, should be aware of several factors. Firstly, the cost of living is relatively low compared to Western countries, but it's essential to have a reliable source of income or savings. The local currency is the Cambodian Riel, but US dollars are widely accepted. Healthcare facilities in Koh Rong are limited, so it's advisable to have a comprehensive health insurance plan that includes medical evacuation. It's also recommended to get routine vaccinations before moving. The official language is Khmer, but English is commonly spoken in tourist areas. However, learning some basic Khmer phrases can be beneficial for daily life. The climate is tropical, with a wet and dry season. It can get very hot and humid, especially during the wet season, which might be uncomfortable for some people. Koh Rong is a beautiful island with stunning beaches and a relaxed lifestyle. However, it's less developed than other parts of Cambodia, which means that some amenities and services may not be readily available. The visa process for Cambodia is relatively straightforward. Most foreigners can obtain a visa on arrival, but it's advisable to check the latest regulations before planning your move. Cambodian cuisine is delicious and diverse, but it might take some time for your stomach to adjust. It's also important to drink bottled water to avoid any potential health issues. Finally, it's essential to respect local customs and traditions. Cambodians are generally friendly and welcoming, but it's important to dress modestly and behave respectfully, especially in religious sites," remarked another expat who made the move to Koh Rong, Cambodia.
