|This request is directed to anyone who has had experience in both Cambodia and Malaysia. Info is for a single female, 65+, still breathing, still vertical, still healthy, and still competent. Has M.A. in curriculum development for ESL/EFL and 30 years teaching experience, 12 of those years at Chinese universities.
Prior to ‘just showing up’ at one place or the other to poke around, would first like some comparative info on the following:
Job opps (keep in mind the age – not a problem for me, but could be a problem for others) – either paid or volunteer, but not ‘voluntour’
Accommodation – types and cost
Cost of living (gave up the party scene years ago, so no longer a factor)
e.g. medical facilities and prevalence of mosquito-borne diseases
Climate – assuming hot and humid in both places, but don’t know for sure
It’s difficult to get a good comparison by just pasting together bits and pieces of info from various websites, so figured I might get more useful info from the forum. Thanks guys.
