Move to Cambodia: A guide to living and working in the Kingdom of Wonder

I'm pleased to announce the release of my book, Move to Cambodia: A guide to living and working in the Kingdom of Wonder. It's a detailed 200-page book that explains everything from budgeting for a move to bargaining with a tuk tuk driver.

Once best known for its grim Khmer Rouge history, today Cambodia is attracting record numbers of new foreign residents thanks to its warm weather, friendly locals, booming economy and very low cost of living. Move to Cambodia covers more than a hundred topics that will help Westerners meet the challenges of a cross-cultural move, with background information on Khmer culture and practical advice from how to get a local driving license to where to live, from English teaching jobs to the cost of electricity.

Available digitally on Amazon or at

  2. Hi I am Cambodian citizen. Where could I go if I wanna get the book called "A guide to living and working in the Kingdom of Wonder?

  3. If you are in Cambodia, you can find it at Monument Books. Otherwise, you can order it on or get a digital copy at

  4. This book is wonderful and has been a huge helping us prepare for our move to Phnom Penh in January 2014. Thank you for putting together such a great guide! One thing that I though was missing though is information about good Khmer language courses in Phnom Penh. Are there any you could recommend?

    1. At the Royal University of Phnom Penh you can try the Khmer for Foreigners class. LINK Khmer ( offers a "natural" Khmer class where they don't speak any English in the classroom. Most expats choose to go with a private tutor, you can get recommendations on the Cambodia Parent Network. Feel free to email me if you have any additional questions.
