My favorite Cambodia

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Wow, that really shows it, what a shithole, do the Chinese really go there and go "oh isn't it nice", I think they go "oh its just like home".

I was there 17 months ago & this vid has absolutely shocked me, Evan though it's been spoken about so many times before I didn't realize the scope of it all.
Good post :good:

Quite a change but then why is anyone surprised? We know SIhanoukville is a construction site.

It seems every week someone posts a video of how much it’s changed. Like most building sites. They change quickly.

Time to move on people. Battambang anyone?

Спасибо, что поделились своим видео, Синус.

Я больше не узнаю это место. Очень некрасиво! Очень грустный!
... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...

Many places in Vietnam are also being "developed" in this way. Ha Noi, Sài Gòn and Đà Nẵng of course, but even in the small beach town where I live, I can see eight of these soulless buildings going up near the sea from my balcony.

I think the Eagles wrote a song about it a couple of years ago.
