    I can only wish pure hell on the Communist Chinese for what they did to world and to small towns such as Sihanoukville. Hopefully the investments they made in destroying Sihanoukville are a financial disaster. Yeah, sour grapes, Sihanoukville of old will never return regardless of the communist bastards.

    Any update on Sihanoukville

    Does anyone know if there's currently any action going on in Sihanoukville (bars or freelance)? I know the Chinese had largely taken over, but have been told many left after a ban on online gambling. Obviously, the pandemic has affected things as well, but I'm curious to know if anyone has been there recently has any up-to-date info.

    So was it is 6 or 10? Names of the bars? Which of the 3 streets in Kampot were they on?

The others were a small group of French tourists (actually one young guy traveling THREE cute women) whom I met in Petropolis, Brazil last year. When I mentioned the influx of Chinese into Cambodia and Sihanoukville, they seemed puzzled. The story that the Chinese had taken over didn't seem to resonate with them. They hadn't noticed any such thing and strongly recommended I visit Cambodia.

    So this begs the question: where did this all start? In the news media, obviously and not the most credible news media, either. Al Geezer? Please. But, these ideas get perpetuated. Not from people on the ground. Just from people on the internet. And those are the people I have never met, and have no reason to believe.
    I'm willing to bet that your aquantences have only been to Cambodia once. And thus do not have a point of reference to compare it to. Anyone who has been to Cambodia multiple times over the course of the past 5 years would have noticed the difference. There is definitely an undercurrent of animosity toward the Chinese among the Cambodians that I know. The Chinese take over is not imaginary. Many people have gotten rich from the foreign "investment" along with bribes. But this is much the case of the rich getting richer and the poor being left behind.

    For some context. I've been to Cambodia probably 5 tilmes over the past 10 years or so and most recently last year.

    Chinese are taking over the town with 100's of casinos and rents the locals can no longer afford. Dirty money from China criminals is flooding into town so its mongering days is on the edge.

    They're not leaving. Leaving is present tense.

    They already left years back. Few of them were "players. ".

    You're mostly talking about barefoot hippies and pensioners at the end of life. Most of them were in Sihanoukville for the $2 a night fan rooms and 50 cent beers. So they just moved to other cities with cheap beers and available shelter. That's like Kampot, Kep, Koh Kong.

    Unless you're talking about the Russian criminal element. But their departure was further back.
