Sihanoukville casino workers from Lion Casino protest over unpaid wages

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.

The hallmark of Chinese mass tourism is the flag held high by the tour leader and the tour group in a line following. No stopping off till leader says " We go here". Thats a Chinese owned joint.

No sign of Chinese mass tourism in Sihanoukville so far!!

Looking like the Chinese businesses opening over past 6 months may have their timing wrong. Still a way off before the projected 500,000 Chinese a year visiting Sihanoukville start showing up (if at all).. Meantime rent and wages must be paid. Looking like a few Chinese businesses 'calling for oxygen'.

At the end of the day the Chinese Government will ensure Hainan Island is a great success. This may well leave Sihanoukville dream a bit of a nightmare.

I think sihanoukville needs some infrastructure before those tourists start arriving en masse there. They prefer to walk from what I've seen when doing the giant flag tours. I'm sure this is all btc money being cleaned here and that's drying up pretty quickly because of all the Chinese regulations around crypto.

Hainan will not pay out in dollars or euros, so it is irrelevant. Cambodian casinos pay out in USD.
