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.

You were probably not born then but even 20 years ago getting into a spat with a local anywhere in SE Asia could end in very violent results.Beerinthemorning wrote: ↑Wed Aug 08, 2018 9:41 amYes KoW is changing as is all of SEA, they merge in to the one big china soon.Mr Cynical wrote: ↑Wed Aug 08, 2018 12:05 amFor once no Cynism,
I am in the process of winding up my various business interests in Siam Reap. For many years I have tried to understand /accept the Khmer culture but it has become increasingly difficult to accept their bullshit,
A prime example is this report if it is true, a local hits a moto driven by a foreigner, as we all know the local will jump up and down hoping to bring in a crowd and agree that he (the local) is the one in the right. Put into the mix the westerner has a local wife who as we all know is looked down upon because she is with a foreigner. End result the idiot local gets a payout.
Defend it as you will, my biggest regret is that my leaving will have an negative effect on my employees. Shame on me I am sure a few will say, but for the years I have given employment with good salaries conditions to many Khmers, who the majority were fantastic.
For the many of you who have no choice but to remain I wish you luck.
Remember in places like KoW they are not necessarily moving forward or progressing towards a better country for all.
How can you have a better country for all? The majority of the people is way better of than 5 or 10 years ago.

My village has practically been emptied of family farmers now busting their asses in Thailand because they can't break even here. Many posters boast of higher salaries, but never mention the increased cost of living.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.
