  • Moving to Phnom Penh

    As the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh offers a lot of opportunities for expats thinking about moving there. With a growing economy and becoming more international, find accommodation can be difficult, but is not impossible. Expats moving to Phnom Penh also need to be prepared for the warm climate.
  • Living in Phnom Penh

    Living in Phnom Penh can be quite the adventure, but expats should make sure to be well prepared. A private healthcare insurance, for instance, is recommended due to the comparatively poor standards of local healthcare. In this article, we introduce you to healthcare, safety and transport in Phnom Penh.
  • Working in Phnom Penh

    As the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh offers the majority of expat jobs in the country, principally in tourism or teaching. Many of these can be found online or with job agents, but remember to get the necessary visa and work permit first!

More Information on Expat Life in Phnom Penh

Once known as The Pearl of Asia, Phnom Penh is the beating heart of Cambodia and the center for the country's economic and industrial activities. Cambodia continues to enjoy steady growth and Phnom Penh is right at the center of the action and opportunities abound. This vibrant city has a blend of French colonial architecture and striking Wats (temples) that hint at the legacy of the once great Khmer Empire. Gaze in wonder at the Royal Palace, marvel at the Silver Pagoda, or just relax by the river, the city offers much for expats to see. Phnom Penh teems with life as street vendors offer up fish amok and exotic aromas drift from nearby markets. But it can be an overwhelming experience for the senses. Luckily InterNations has a huge selection of expat groups so you can find the best places to eat, drink, and socialize while avoiding the regular tourist pitfalls.
