Questions:Answer 1:Answer 2:Answer 3:Answer 4:Answer 5:

1- Do you know some best street-food here? Where?Yes, there is some fantastic street food, but you have to get out of the tourist areas. I can't recommend anything in particular because I always just point and order. Go somewhere like Orussey Market and wander into the side streets and side alleys that surround it. Also try the local bbq/beer gardens. The food can be very good in Cambodia,, but it's more hit and miss than Thailand, so you have to try lots of places to find the really good ones.

Russian Market (Toul Tom Pong Market) in the evening, you can get variety of food. Cheap and really good.

You should try Nhom Bon Jok, or as Cambodians say, Khmer noodles. One of my favourite places is beside Wat Batom (BATOM, not PHNOM!), near the Cambodia-Vietnam monument. It is on the side street opposite Wat Botum (south side), near the corner of street 7.

2- What are my best options to stay good and cheapCheap lodging everywhere. But depends on what is cheap and what you want.Lots of safe, clean, decent places around Orussey Market (try street 111), which is fairly centrally located.
4
3- Where are public libraries or University libraries with quite nice environment and electricity plugs where I can sit down with my laptop and study?Not that nice but many of the small convenience groceries and gas stations have wifi and long tables against the wall. The Khmers often gather in there at night and using their computers while having a soft drink or snacking on food. I second the first response, about convenience stores. No public environments with free wifi to speak of, but there are loads of small cafes with cheap menu items which offer free wifi, which are quieter than convenience stores. Also try milk tea cafes.
5
4- What is the best way to find long term housing?Walk around outside the tourist areas and look for apartments. Walk in and ask. Or ask your hotel if they offer a monthly rate.Try the internet! Or get an agent, my friends have had good experiences with that.
6
5- What do locals do for fun in the afternoon?Hang out at City Mall or other malls if they have the money. Go bowling. Got to the movies. If no money, they work or hide from the sun.Olympic stadium for sport (evening).Hang out in coffeeshops or internet cafes; skip school; take selfies with their iphones. ;) i'm only sorta kidding...
7
6- What do locals do for fun on weekends?Cambodian dicotheques. C2. nova. St. Tropez. Earlier on they are in the beer gardens and bbq places.
Visint Oudong mountain, Fishing at somehwere near Dream Garden (outta town),
Go to Kampot or the beach.
Exercise! Try the Riverside and Olympic Stadium around sunset, it's quite fun to watch. Expats like to hit up movies, music (Metahouse and Equinox are good places for that) and sports (pickup football and ultimate frisbee, also cycling!)
8
7- Is there any kind of expat area/coffee shop/meetings/customs?* Hanging out by the river front is the good choice for the evening relaxing (although, it can be a bit touristy at some part). My favorite places to hang out/chill by the river are:
+ By the river - All by Sisowath Quay
- Touk Bar
- Tuttie Fruitti (Frozen Yogurt)
- Le Moon (roof top bar)
- Blue Pumpkin (Ice Cream)
- Riverside Bar & Restaurant
- Metro
- Mekong River Bar
- River House
- Toto Ice cream (I think it is better than Blue Pumpkin taste wise)
BKK 1 is where a lot of long-term expats live. In my experience, most of the expats on the riverside are either sexpats or short-termers, here for less than a year. Lots of expat hang-outs in that area, and it is chock-full of coffeeshops. Also, street 240 (which has quite a lot of decent food and shops). Street 172 is kind sleezy (i think), but lots of expats and backpackers alike hang out there.
9
8- What is unique in town that I can only do/learn here?The Killing Fields. Genoice Museum. Cambodian hospitality. Cambodian bokator (ancient Khmer fighting)

Sightseeing.
You should start from the north to the south:
Tuk Tuk is about 15usd-18usd (depends on the amounts of the place you visit) for one whole day in the city.
- Wat Phnom (It is the heart of Phnom Penh)
- Central Market - for shopping - Amazing Architecture
- National Museum
- Royal Palace
- Toul Sleng Museum (S21) where Khmer Rough prosecuted/tortured Cambodians in the late 70s.
- Russian Market (Toul Tom Poong Market) - for shopping, local lives
- Killing Field (off the city a bit)
Yup, definitely the Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng. Wat Phnom is a nice little visit, too. Drop by the post office just near there if you're interested in architecture at all.

9- Do you know any Yoga/Martial Art Dojo/group class in town?Bokator MMAOlympic Stadium has a couple buildings that host karate, judo, and tae kwon do classes. Someone once told me they weren't cheap. There are a number of yoga places, just google phnom penh yoga and you'll get their websites. One of my friends trains with Kundalini Yoga, and apparently likes it a lot.
11
10- Is there any place with old school Arcade machines (pinball and fight games as street fighter is a must)?I don't know what games they have, but most of the malls have an arcade on the top floor.City Mall has an arcade, but i wouldn't call it old school.
12
11- Where and what time do nice College/University people hang out/coffee/chitchat in town?Cafe is everywhere. Cafe Cafe Cafe most in BBK1.Coffeeshops, for sure. Try Brown Cafe on Russian Boulevard just across from the Institute for Foreign Languages, pretty much any time of day, but especially mid morning and late afternoon. They tend to go in groups, though, which feels a bit inaccessible. I have struck up conversations with students before, though.
13
12- How can I send free SMS texts to cel phone numbers from web or smartphone app? I am not talking about internet messages like: IM/VoIp/freeTextApps/WhatsApp/Viber/LineJust buy a cheap simcard, the cheapest you can find is 25cent (USD).

13- Where and what time do nice local people dance/party in town? (no only backpackers)C2, st tropez, nova, other misc discos - many others are out there that have zero foreigners. You find them by walking or riding a motorbike off into the city or night. Or meeting young people at the beer gardens and asking them.try street 51, especially Heart of Darkness and Pontoon (pontoon is on the corner of 51 and 172. hm, i'm not sure i'd say "nice" local people, but it's a scene, anyway. ;)
