  1. It think there various ways for foreigners to make money… The most popular job is teaching… I see that most temporary visitors say here and teach children to earn their living. Anyway, there are also other jobs for them if they are trying to seek for… I have several friends in Siem Reap who work as musician and singer too. Thx

  2. Here are some great ways to make money in Cambodia. When it comes to making money in Cambodia one of the best ways is to actually teach English without even needing to the native language of Cambodia, you can earn upwards of around $1,500 a month doing this which enough to cover expenses.If you are a foreigner to the country and your English skills are good then all you need to do is hire a translator to work with you, you can find people who have great English skills but are currently out of work and will be very happy to work with you for a very small amount.

    If you plan to do this you will be accepted on a business visa to Cambodia and will be ready to teach English for many high paying customers and students.

    All you need to do when teaching English is just try and remember back to your school days, how did you learn English, I know it was a very long time ago but think about how you learnt to write English, you may be started with your own name, how do you write your own name then how to say simple words in English such as Hello, Thank you, How are you? My name is Bob, I live in Cambodia, Good bye, for example all you need to do is work on basic words and then build up, if you have access to the internet when you are in Cambodia all you need to do is search on Google for basic images of dogs, cats, apple’s, boys, girls, man, woman, doctor, pencil,
    paper, house, food  etc.. Basic examples as quoted once you have these images all you need to do is write the English version and the Khmer version next to it and have the student copy it 10 times like you may have had to do in pre-school.

    Once you have done this for some time and have the funds available you me want to look into other ventures. One very hot niche right now in Cambodia is internet café’s. They are highly in demand in most major areas in Cambodia and it’s a great way to make money. Even if you rent a small room in the city for the equivalent of $200 a month as long as it can fit in about 10 computers you can make some serious money. If you open 24/7 hours a day you can charge people $1 per hour to use the computer with internet
    access as some Cambodians do not have enough money to buy an actual computer and pay for an internet connection every month. Technology in some areas of Cambodia is still quite slow and is reminiscence of about 10 years ago by US standards. You can fill a room up with 10 computers charge $1 per hour that’s $10 per hour, $240 an hour for all day long and all night as long as every computer was full. The last internet café I went to in Cambodia there were actually people waiting for a spare computer and
    this was a space with over 50 computers. All the computers where quite old running old versions of software. The machines
    would cost very little in the US maybe $10-20 each from a computer flee market.
