What frills do I get for being married to a Cambodian? Can I get permanent residence for instance?

No. People stop asking you when you are going to get married, and ask when you're going to have a baby (or another baby). That's about it.

Forget what the law says, who do you know or who have you heard of that married a Khmer and that way naturalized as Cambodian? It should be easy to remember because it will be a very short list.

Sorry forgot to mention the above perks are for Brits only. For everyone else:

You get the exciting opportunity to invest your life savings in provincial swamp land.
You instantly become the financial protectorate of a gaggle of provincial peasants with half a dozen teeth between them.
You get the honor of being able to pay to attend the wedding of several dozen strangers per year.
You will be educated on the art of garbage hording and financial frugality.
You will be permitted daily to indulge in the gastronomic delight of broth + assorted bone splinters

Ha ha, it should be noted that the financial frugality will be on your part, after the light of your life has sprung on your behalf for all the garbage that passed as "premium foreign import", or the price did anyway - Money for old rope.

Don't really see any benefits but make sure to get a prenup! Divorce can get pretty expensive.
