Living in different places will make you good at analyzing where to live for your preference! That's the case, Cambodia if comparing to other countries around the world in term of economic and general development on industrialization might not be the best to spend your life here, but in term of cultural and natural circumstances Cambodia is surely the right setting for everyone! There are several reasons why Cambodia could be the better home to everyone!
First, Cambodia is the longstanding historical empire more than 2000 years in South East Asian Region that teaches their people to be calm and polite to the new comers and foreigners. No one could find that Cambodian is the one to discriminate others, but it could be seen as the most friendly person in the region to welcome new things and opportunity to grow. Do not ever think based on the political motivation! Government is government and people is people! Politics is politics and cultures is cultures! Public is public and private is private! You may find Cambodia facing many events of the political conflicts for the late century. In fact, someone is behind it other than Cambodian herself. No leaders in Cambodia really shows their heart to do what other countries want them to, but we have to in term of the international geographical political influences. It is believed Cambodia's been being the victim of this kind of game until present. What destroys Cambodia the most is not herself, but the strongest giant political players are using Cambodia as the platform to show their strength to the region as well as the world. No matters what life in Cambodia is much better than those in some countries if just to focus on how we live our life privately. We could do whatever we want and government could not show any harms to us if we do the right things.
Second, food in Cambodia is really good and affordable for all kinds of people. Most foreigners and Cambodian residents do enjoy what they have to eat here with the different tastes. Some foreigners said Cambodia is the right place to eat being better than some countries in the region that the taste of food is not worth to eat. Foreigners could walk in the city for the most delicious food for their own preferences or taste the traditional food throughout Cambodia. Similarly, local residents is also pleased to have their local food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Not only Cambodian meal, but also the many other various types of food is available to all nationality living in Cambodia.

Moreover, fruit of Cambodia is the best without chemical substances, except the imported fruit from some countries. The local fruit are cassava, watermelon, melon, orange, mango, mangosteen, longan, grape, rambutan, durian, etc.
Finally, there are many natural resorts created privately or publicly in Cambodia. If you want to go to the ancient city, Siem Reap is the best capital of Angkor Empire to visit with the largest temple in the country and region. There are around 1080 temples throughout Cambodia. Being the best tourism site in Cambodia, Siem Reap is more popular for living as the city expansion from year to year because of the inflow of foreigners and Cambodian to this province.
