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.

Evidently never took her Girl Guides orienteering course.

Forgot her multi-purpose Swiss Army Knife with built-in compass

Disregarded the appropriate clothing for entering snake-infested areas.

Happy ending though..

Good work the police

The highly useful "night-vision" Raybans took precedence - stylish looks of course have priority when exploring jungle.

Any FB or Instagram 101 teaches that..

Seems like the GoFundMe generation couldn't find its way out of a shoebox.
