          Hello William, or whoever may answer. Can you tell me your location? I've already booked a room for two nights at Kampot Manor though would like to stay at least a night at your place with an AC/fan. Also my medium-term plans are to find an apartment or GH that rents on a month-to-month basis. Any recommendations? I've lived in SKV for about a year and Kampot sounds like a pleasant alternative. Thank you, John

          Kampot was great, very relaxing and cool French architecture. I recommend at least one night in Magic Sponge to fully appreciate the hosts, food and atmosphere.
