Seems there is a Chinese and Korean invasion in Cambodia

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Seems there is a Chinese and Korean invasion in Cambodia

Post by Jas777 »

I haven't been in Cambodia since 2002 but from what I've been hearing and reading there seems to be a Chinese and a Korean invasion in that country. Living in the Philippines for 15 years the place became overrun with Koreans and they're not exactly the friendliest people in the world if you know what I mean! Most of them are downright rude and that goes for the women too. Chinese aren't much better and their population is increasing day by day. I've been reading and hearing from people, the same as going on in Cambodia.I know for certain the Cambodia government is very close to the Chinese as that is where their getting most of their aid from. They seem to also back them on the world stage all the time. So how does that boil down to living there in Cambodia if anybody care to give their insight on it?

There is no "seems like" the hundreds of articles you can easily google or posts on here should tell you enough of what is going on.

Yes I have been reading other sources about it. I just wanted to hear about about it from people who live there. Thanks for the reply!

If you stay away from the main border towns and Sihanoukville not that many around yet but was a bit shocked to see a restaurant in a smaller town needing to put up no spitting signs around the walls in Chinese

It wasn't meant to be terse but as I say a cursory search for Chinese in the search bar will bring up hundreds of stories, with comment from expats living here about it. Here's a 134 page thread to start off with. In short lots of Chinese, Sihanoukville is ruined, parts of PP are now full of Chinese, lots of casinos, lots of gangsters, lots of crime usually to each other.

newsworthy/more-chinese-takeover-sihano ... 20Sihanouk

Also search the excellent articles on it in the South East Asia globe and the AL Jazeera report on the casinos

Butterfly bar and Candy bar are owned by the same woman. The girls go back and forth in addition to going up and down. Most of them are about a 4 on the finger scale...
