I know of a widower, now happily married three years. Pretty much he went around to Guest Houses with his CV and letters of reference and announced his intentions; i.e. "I am seeking a willing partner to accompany me in marriage"

Pretty old fashioned and worked well.

OTOH, I also met mine on FB after she contacted and said hello. At the time I was not seeking for that. I did learn a lot by studying her photos on FB, because I saw she was tactile (always touching her friends) but not an attention seeker (never even looking at the camera or performing) shy and demure and definitely lovely on the eyes.

The rest of it I could see she had no interest in drama, re-posted almost nothing, and never spoke about her personal life. Good loyal friendships and well loved, with a solid family. I could see all that but of course it took me time to believe it.

A lot of Cambodian girls have learnt Chinese, or are learning Chinese. Most of these speak Mandarin. There are schools throughout Cambodia teaching Chinese.

There are Chinese people who have been living in Cambodia for generations. For example, their great grandparents, or great great grandparents came from China. These speak various dialects of Chinese. I dont know of any with a family who originally spoke Mandarin. A small proportion originally spoke Cantonese. Most originally spoke other dialects. However, most of the children in these families study Mandarin.

It would be ideal for you to look for a girl who speaks Chinese.

I met a Cambodian girl who worked in Malaysia for several years. Most girls who work in Malaysia come back speaking English. This girl had a Chinese boss, and came back able to speak Chinese. I dont know which dialect. She cant read and write Chinese though. But she could learn to read and write it.

If you marry a Cambodian girl, you may not automatically be able to stay in Cambodia. I dont know the rules for Chinese people.

So what would be the extra conditions, beside coughing up the yearly visa fee?

I met a positively amazing young woman here but it was entirely by accident: I wasn't looking for anything more involved or sordid than a flat sheet and a couple of pillows, and she happened to be the person whose turn it was to attend to the next customer.
You landed in Cambodia and went out to buy sheets and invited the sales clerk home to sleep in them? That's bold, I must try that move.
