Sihanoukville is a Mess; Authorities React

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.

Most likely locals. I don't know why they keep on posting images of local tourists traveling for a weekend. It won't revive the tourism sector, especially since rents in shitville have gone through the roof and the Chinese took over most businesses.

I'd love to see what the beach was like once the Khmer dipped though. Must've looked like a South African shanty town :stir:

I know back in Jan 2018, the last time I was there, nearly every hotel, restaurant & bar I had used for 5 years had gone, knocked down or taken over by Chinese

I'd imagine there is virtually nothing left now that isn't Chinese
