Loud bang heard st 154 & 51

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.

It's been building up since the last election but I think bad tourist business has to be factored in too. The number of visitors is up but it wasn't a bumper year in the cash registers compared with previous ones

Here goes the Something big is gonna happen" again. Nothing will happen, HE has the Army and police well in his pocket.

Businesses are selling because the number of bars/guest houses/hotels has grown at a much faster pace than the number of tourists. Add to that land prices and rents that have gone crazy and 50-Cent beers and room rates that are free-falling and it is hard to make a buck.

agreed, its always the unexpected that caught the government by surprise, i.e. small garment factory protest that turns violent etc

btw gunshots dont produce loud bang, more like some muted metal clanging sound, very disappointing, thats why hollywood added sound effects to gunshots

I both appreciate your cynicism and hope you are right. However simply because the outcome is predictable does not mean nothing will happen.

plan for the worst but hope for the best, just stay as far away as possible and stash some food / booze just in case, curfew goes into effect
