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.

Saw her docked on the new quay before driving to PP last Tuesday. She is easily 30% bigger than the previous biggest ones.
Having still an unobstructed Harbour view if quickly being threatened by lightning fast always higher constructions it is evident that the ships size and port of call frequency are steadily increasing.

Owned by the Chinese (Hong Kong) but now home ported in Singapore due to Singaporeans having to pay extortionate levies (Sing $2,000 per year or Sing$100 per day) to use their own land based casinos. They now can spend their money on a luxury cruise and use the casinos for free.

More profitable for the shipping line and Singaporeans love to gamble.

Genting started the casino in Perth with Dallas Dempster years ago. They're a casino company and yes, nominally Malaysian.
