Whatever you will eat in Cambodian coming from a Khmer kitchen will have 1 to several spoons of MSG, Monosium Glutamate. The Khmers love it but us westerners will feel dizzy afterwards. The brain is called Ajinomoto from a Jap company.

Most hospitals and clinics in Cambodia are still far away from international standards. With heavy health issues you should try to reach Rattanak in PP, a Bankok hospital or in best case the Bumrungrad hospital in Thailand

Cambodians are in average working for 70 - 120 USD a month in the tourism centers and for far less in the further provinces. That means everything what is worth a Dollar is valueable. Most Chinese companies settled on the southern side of Phnom Penh.

Khmers are barely listening to any western music as there would not be any reason. The inland music scene variety is just massive and great and Khmers love their own songs. Most popular singer is Kemarah Sereymon.

The rule in Cambodias traffic is, there is no rule. So epxect anything what you not yet knew about drivers behaviour. Once involved in an accident the Khmers will run away and the victims will be stolen their things. So be careful driving on thos streets.

Most tourists scare about snakes but usually will never see one and better worry about traffic accidents in Cambodia. But if it happens (usually to farmers) it is the Malayan Pitviper which is quite aggressive.
