Violence in Sihanoukville

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 aren't registered with the embassy? I think your passport will be flagged on the way back to the States.

Just my guess. In the event of emergency evacuation, only those who registered with their embassy will get the first priority to board the plane.

I hope that is correct, but I have a feeling it is only for low season :(

I spoke with them last night when I went to this party (still a packed house when I finished working at 4am) and they are uncertain if they'll open again or not. A lot of unanswered questions from the authorities on the matter, but they're preparing to be told they can't.

So the boys-in-brown are closing all the beach bars? If a beach bar serves food isn't it a restaurant? I wonder if they are going to close the beach-bars/restaurants so that the buildings can be bulldozed and the friends of the high up boys-in-brown can build up-market bars/restaurants/hotels? I saw this happen in Thailand time and again. Same Same, But Different.

eventually they will have to get rid of those bars purely for sanitary reasons if they want to make the water safe for swimming.

Yeah, I think that's why pirate cave is the only one getting hit. They don't serve food.

As for the upmarket thing... perhaps, but there's actually been a lot of pressure from most of the other expat business owners about the beach bars, and then the statement from the embassy that specifically singled out that beach at night as being the danger zone. i think they pretty much HAD to shut down a bar or two there to be taken seriously at all about making a change.
