This is a free speech zone where you can discuss and debate everything Cambodia related whether you're a dyed in the wool leftist, a liberal or somewhere to right of Attila the Hun. This is also where you get to read the news the local media suppresses.
So, our intrepid journalists in town have nothing to say as usual about goons smashing up a place, especially in the lead up to the elections.
Why are the gods such vicious cunts?
Where is the god of tits and wine?
So this palatial building with a nice swimming pool is a backpacker guesthouse?!?!? What's the business model, harvesting organs from the guests?
Why would anyone possibly want to hear about this when you can read the same story about the lakeside evictions being told over and over again, day after day?
It's the trend these days in 'backpacker hostels'. Millennium backpackers like to travel in comfort, with their own kind, run by their own kind. E.g. http://www.thesiemreaphostel.com/rooms-at-the-siem-reap-hostel/
Next question: Who is the tipsy khmer dude and to which local politician is he related?
as from what i've heard 1 guy ( not sure it was the tipsy or one of his friends ) is family of HE wife.
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

''I can still remember when your city smelled exciting. I still get a whiff of that aroma now and then.''
I live just around the corner from that den of the unwashed and I spoke to some Khmers I know who witnessed what happened.
They told me it was some 'playboy' rich kid who basically threw a tantrum in the joint - then came back with 5000 of his mates - just like a real man does - to finish the job. Pricks.
Anyway the place was up and running again last night, but looked like a few backpackers had checked out as only a few room lights were on.

Grouping together and giving an outsider a good beating (regardless of what happened) ... classic monkey behaviour ... what do you expect living in Cambodia?
But more seriously ... what hope is there for a country where the ruling elite behave in such a way? Especially against visiting foreigners who provide their income in terms of tourism and foreign aid. This was no street mugging by a desperate person ... this was a coordinated act of violence committed by animals.
I don't think any (or hardly any) of the muggings in Phnom Penh are done by "desperate persons" unless by 'desperate' you mean desperate for a new Scoopy and iPhone.
Is Cambodia ruled by thugs?
in the fabric of life, you are just the fabric..
So fare I know "Playboy" is not in Cambodia any-more?
And fore the rest, I Still don't know the other version, So let them do and become happy.
The live is A and B over the C of D, So I'm definitely à nOn-p00npie
