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 boat reportedly belongs to Aqua Mekong Luxury Cruise Ships, who run river cruises between Ho Chi Min City in Vietnam and Siem Reap, Cambodia, and it looks very similar to the Aqua Mekong ship shown on their video here:
