If you’re planning a trip to Cambodia, or better still moving to the Kingdom then there are a lot of websites that will make your life a damned sight easier. Therefore we present the Best Cambodian Websites for 2023.
Making this least was no mean feat and there are obviously a few that nearly made the list and others we felt were not worthy. Please do though get in touch if you feel we missed what you feel is one of the best Cambodian websites, unless of course you work for Khmer Times…
Best Cambodian apps for 2023
Apps and websites are often one and the same, so the following are either dual app/websites or simply apps. They are though in our mind the best Cambodian apps for 2023 in our humble opinion.
Best Cambodian Taxi apps
There’s actually a whole heap of Taxi Apps in Cambodia, but there are only two of importance. If you are in Phnom Penh, or Sihanoukville then it is GrabTaxi, but if you out in the boonies then you will need to use. PassApp. In Phnom Penh and Siem Reap there is also Tada, but it is not as useful as the other two. There is no Uber in Cambodia.
Grab can be linked to your local, or foreign card, while PassApp relies almost exclusively on cash. If you are out in the countryside neither will work and you will need cash.

Best food delivery apps in Cambodia
For vendors Food Panda is probably better, while for the consumer Nham24 tends to be that bit cheaper, generally anyway. At the end of the day, follow the ones offering the best deals. Phnom Penh also offers far more variety than there is in other cities.
Best Payment app
This will depend hugely on if you have a business, or a work visa, which we will cover in the next link, but generally speaking Wing if you don’t have a visa, or ABA if you do have one.

Best Cambodian Websites for 2023
So, with food and transport dealt with we can move on to more web based platforms, some f which have apps, others do not, but all are relevant, or at least a little bit useful.
Best News Websites in Cambodia
There are quite literally thousands of Cambodian news websites, with the best ones often listed by site hits, or volume. But, of course quantity does not always mean quality.
We have therefore put together our top Cambodian news websites, both for quality, different areas of expertise and in the interests of our readers at least that these are Cambodian news websites in English.

Best News Website in Cambodia – Phnom Penh Post
For this one some might say the Khmer Times, but on our minds at least the Post are more nuanced and actually link to external sources. Having worked at KT I feel I have the experience to be able to make this call.
Best business new website in Cambodia – Cambodia Investment Review
While all main newspapers have their own business section Cambodia Investment Review are the only publication that is quite literally devoted to business. Yes I have written for them, but there really is no bias here….
Best sports news website in Cambodia – BPVE
One of the newest publications in Cambodia, BPVE will eventually cover the news in general, but as of now are concentrating on sports within Cambodia. Particularly focused on the Cambodian football scene. Again much more thorough than mere sports sections of other websites.
Best Cambodian Lifestyle News Website – Khmer Nights
Currently not as active as before, but Khmer Nights were the lifestyle magazine within Cambodia. Still have a treasure trove of content and publish stuff add hoc nowadays.
Best business consultancy website in Cambodia
With regards to the business theme, there are a few decent options, such as B2b-Cambodia and a few others. Why have we included this as a website thing? Basically it is really easy to open a company in Cambodia, easier than anywhere else in the region, so if you are looking to do business Cambodia truly is a great place.
For this we recommend Aquarii Business Development who as well as offering a number of business consultancy services, also have an online classified and businesses for sale section.

Best travel planning website for Cambodia
Not an actual Cambodian website, but one we simply love regardless. Rome2Rio is a site that allows you to put in two destinations than gives you the options of the different ways to get from one to the other. As in from Rome to Rio for example. I recently used this to get myself from Bangkok to Cambodia and it worked a treat!
