Cambodia tourism climbs again

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Wow, that's pretty good.

I'm guessing we would have seen a lot more Vietnamese tourists if it hadn't been for the whole CNRP Sam Rainsy political stuff going on, which involved the whole "Youn" thing too.

And it's a short trip for them, so I wouldn't be surprised if some actually bring along their own rice, rice cooker and a 20L bottle of water when they visit Cambodia.
