Japanese Offering Free Hugs Outside Royal Palace

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.

Japanese aren’t typically the hugging kind, either. It wasn’t that long ago that a bow or a stiff handshake was acceptable. Is this a thing with the younger generation, or just a guy only thing?

At least the Japanese aren’t doing the kissy kissy thing that the French love doing.

What "kissy kissy thing"? You mean the way continental Europeans sometimes greet each other by brushing cheeks and kissing the air?
To me that's a very endearing custom, and I'm happy to see it spreading to other countries. People don't have to be scared of intimacy.

Just because the guy took off his Santa Clause suit and continues giving hugs , everyone thinks [ he ] it's weird.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I have always wondered about how much of that was staged with actors? Let's face it, he tries to kiss some redneck and he'll get blown away on the spot.
