Chinese Navy Ships to Celebrate New Koh Rong Naval Outpost

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.

I think I know who you are on FB and if it’s you you’re pretty racist towards anyone not white.

If it’s not you I unreservedly apologise but you still come across as having a very blinkered one sided view. Have you just arrived or are you a part time expat?

Great. No beaches left in Cambodia at all. With all the experience in South China Sea they can fill in the gap between the islands and snooky and create even bigger casinos and submarine pens.
Still there but....

That’s pretty insensitive generally but more so seeing as there’s probably people who went through the Thai and Indo tsunami on this board.

There’s still lots of accommodation for them although at the moment not as much but there’s more of them now, as I alluded to earlier.

They certainly mostly earn more now than the $120 the expats were paying them.
For wages, I highly suggest you check out the Chinese forums, they are constantly trying to figure out ways to pay less. This idea that people are raking in the big bucks is rediculous. Service staff are being hired at $120 or even less whe they can be. Chinese nationals are mostly lucky to be making $600 per for a foreman type position. The only ones making rake are the money launderers and the land owners. Many Chinese nationals are very unhappy with the current status quo, there is a large amount of random stabbings/robbings by young Khmer gangs that go unreported because Chinese are skeptical of police wanting to help them. There was over 30 stabbings in a 2 week period in December and only 2 got reported to police.

You absolutely can make $2500 a month driving a sand/fill truck. Just not in Sihanoukville. Or anywhere in Cambodia for that matter.

Johnny
Go and speak to one of them.

As an example of the wages, my wife is earning $1000 a month working for the guy who owns Jin Bao casino (he's Hong Kong Chinese) in his lighting shop. She gets free accommodation if she wants it.

I'm not on fb, so definitely isn't ME. Also, I'm not white so not sure you are going with this.
