I don't know about Miami, but there are about 20,000 Cambodians living in Long Beach, California, and I believe over 10,000 living in Lowell, Mass. There is probably Cambodian media with web sites/email address in each city you might try. They probably have a rundown on a population in Miami.

There is a small Cambodian community in Tampa and also in Jacksonville, so probably should be some around Florida - sorry can't be definitive though! But the suggestion to check the donut shops is a good one!

That's just bizarre. I am working for the next couple weeks just outside Lowell(a place I'd never heard of before).

My wife, kids and I live in Fort Lauderdale. There are no Khmer that we have met here. But we have heard of some.

There are not many khmer in SFlorida. As mentioned above kissimee has a small community and there is a fairly large community in Jacksonville. The closest large community is probably in the Richmond VA area. Went to my GFs sisters HS graduation and must have been near 80 % Cambdian students.
Boca has a fairly large Thai populaion but I have met some Cambodians there and in Margate but no real community.
