  1. Welcome back, Jai Dee. Good to have you back.
  2. Below is the text from an email I received today from the US embassy in Cambodia. It details entry requirements and flight info Cambodia during the pandemic. Bottom line is that a 3k USD deposit is required. ________________ THE EMBASSY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IN PHNOM PENH IS TRANSMITTING THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION THROUGH THE AMERICAN LIAISON NETWORK AS A PUBLIC SERVICE TO U.S. CITIZENS IN CAMBODIA. PLEASE DISSEMINATE THIS MESSAGE TO ALL U.S. CITIZENS IN YOUR ORGANIZATION OR NEIGHBORHOOD. Cambodia Entry Requirements On June 10, authorities announced a requirement that all foreign travelers entering Cambodia pay a deposit of $3,000 upon arrival at airports for mandatory COVID-19 testing and potential treatment services. On June 8, authorities released a fee schedule for these testing and treatment services. Travelers should be prepared to see this deposit applied to a minimum of $165 for mandatory COVID-19 testing, approximately $1,281 more to support quarantine in the event one or more passengers on their flight test positive, and a minimum of approximately $3,255 more for treatment and quarantine if the traveler tests positive. The Embassy recommends all travelers be prepared upon entry into Cambodia to pay for the full costs identified in the fee schedule. The June announcements of new entry requirements are in addition to requirements for entering Cambodia by air, land, and water that authorities introduced on May 10 for prevention, containment, and response to the spread of COVID-19. All arriving foreigners must: 1. Possess a COVID-19 negative medical certificate issued no more than 72 hours prior to the date of arrival and proof of medical insurance coverage of at least $50,000; 2. Undergo a COVID-19 test upon arrival and wait in official facilities to receive laboratory results. In the event one or more travelers on an arriving vessel/flight test positive, all passengers must undergo a 14-day quarantine at a location designated by Cambodian authorities. If all travelers test negative, health authorities will require travelers to self-isolate for 14-days at their home or lodging under supervision of local authorities. Health authorities will then oversee another COVID-19 test on the 13th day of self-isolation. Cambodian Visas The Government of Cambodia has suspended the e-visa and visa-on-arrival programs until further notice. In addition, we understand Cambodian Embassies will only accept applications for diplomatic, official, and business visas and will not issue tourist or other visas to enter Cambodia at this time. COVID-19 As of 10:00 a.m. June 26, Cambodia has two active cases of COVID-19 (there have been 130 total confirmed cases since the onset of the global pandemic). We will send further MASCOT updates as events and developments warrant. Notice on Flights for American Citizens Seeking to Depart Cambodia: The following airlines currently maintain sharply reduced flights that depart Cambodia for onward connecting flights to the United States.  Many travelers worldwide have reported unexpected flight cancellations and limited flight availability.  Please check airline websites for times and availability and do not book flights through an online search service. We recommend booking flights through a travel agency or directly with the below airlines. 1. Korean Airlines Note: Currently three flights every week 2. Asiana Airlines Note: Currently three flights every week. 3. EVA Air Note: One flight every week, beginning June 24.
  3. One wonders how the Pattaya property owners will feel when all of the bar owners stop paying rent.
  4. My preference would be a unit with more space, but older units tend to have more issues with plumbing and insects.
  5. I would guess 5K to 7K per month.
  6. Based upon the information available now about COVID19, it’s hard to imagine the scene returning to normal again without an effective vaccine. I just don’t see how bars can make a profit without tourism numbers retuning to what they once were, and that seems so far away and uncertain at present. Many LB bars were barely surviving as it was. I would not be at all surprised if some bars walk away from their current venues, losing their key money, and then reopen in new locations when the crisis is over.
  7. Thanks for doing this thread, Snoop. Am very much enjoying it. It’s nice to have you posting here at LBR.

    Yep. We have a very special breed of knucklehead here in the States. But I assure you, they are not as great in number as they appear on the tele. Most of them are in the Southern States, former slave states prior to and during the US Civil War. Demographically, they are primarily white, working-class and uneducated, reacting to their loss of privilege and poor economic status and prospects.

    Confirmation Bias: the tendency to process information by looking for, or interpreting, information that is consistent with one’s existing beliefs. This biased approach to decision making is largely unintentional and often results in ignoring inconsistent information. Existing beliefs can include one’s expectations in a given situation and predictions about a particular outcome. People are especially likely to process information to support their own beliefs when the issue is highly important or self-relevant. https://www.britannica.com/science/confirmation-bias

    I respectfully disagree. The Epoch Times is not a reliable source of factual information. It is a propaganda organization with a right-wing political agenda. While it is clearly the case that the Chinese Communist Party is totalitarian, there is absolutely no clear evidence to support the theory that China intentionally unleashed COVID19 upon the world. There is evidence that the Chinese government did mishandle the outbreak and was not forthcoming with other governments early on. It also seems evident that it is not being honest about the level of infections and deaths in China due to COVID19. But it is an illogical leap to believe or even suspect that China’s mishandling and dishonesty means it used COVID19 as a weapon against other nation-states. From Wikipedia: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Epoch_Times The Epoch Times is a multi-language newspaper.[2] It was founded in 2000 by John Tang and a group of Chinese Americans associated with the Falun Gong spiritual movement.[3] Though the newspaper is known for general interest topics with a focus on news about China and its human rights issues, it has become known for its support of U.S. President Donald Trump and favorable coverage of far-right politicians in Europe; a 2019 report showed it to be the second-largest funder of pro-Trump Facebook advertising after the Trump campaign.[4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11] The newspaper is part of the Epoch Media Group, which also operates New Tang Dynasty Television (NTD).[7] The group's news sites and YouTube channels have spread conspiracy theories such as QAnon and anti-vaccination

    What a scumbag.
  14. I’d say it is likely the airlines will use this crisis as an excuse to reduce services and raise prices in the future. I can’t see health certificates being a requirement for international travel in the long term as that would too drastically reduce the amount of customers and profit, and interfere with the global economy.
