      Rental is cheap in general comparisons, but more luxury for your money over the borders. Food is expensive I would safely say, with supermarkets paying 50% tax there's only one winner. If you can eat the same has the local people, yes, it would be cheaper, but can you really?

      With the pandemic's arrival it slowed , or stopped many projects. My Khmer friend now managed to rent new premises and carry on with his restaurant over on chicken farm road. The Chinese have started building of the boat port.

      Now here's a story I will tell you all about what I came across on this subject "house building for the poor and needy". Yes, it happened when I was traveling some years back, but let's cut this particular story short. I was presented with a portfolio of the dialog, introduction, ongoing, completion of said buildings. After reading and looking at the photos of the very well-presented book, I was then promptly asked for a donation of $50. This was the Khmer land owner and fund raiser, also giver to the needy. The builder and partner to the Khmer was a European whom organised the European paying volunteers whom would learn the skills at house building for that of a needy cause. Since I had a little time, being not in a hurry and was interested in this type of ongoing project I asked f I could visit the said site displayed in the book. You would think only an acceptable thing to ask in return for someone who was asking them of a donation of $50 upwards for a worthy cause. Unfortunately, the attitude of the organiser took an unexpected turn towards an expected donator, grabbing back their organisations portfolio with a brief explanation of those needy people would not like visitors at their new homes. I actually knew of this person's land, so on leaving I thought I would take a look on my own, and sure there was allotted plots with building materials laid out, but what was strange, no people or other previous new builds such as in the portfolio I was presented with, asking me of a suitable donation. So, what is your conclusion? My own was that of a part scam, the volunteers would perform what was intended. But there was no needy people going to ever live in those homes.

      I would agree with what John is saying Bill, many have left one way or another, be it because of the number of Chinese arriving. But that was some years back, apart from the town of Sihanoukville and one or two casino areas there is little impact toward many expats unless you're queuing amongst the Chinese hordes wanting to get to see Angkor Wat. Unfortunately, it's been the unforeseen experience of Covid19 that's now made its impact on charge, but also that of world changes. Such a deadly infection to enfold worldwide, the likes that no living person has seen before on such a pandemic scale. If true, and to repeat the history books of the silk road bringing the black death to Europe, here we have the new belt road bringing Covid19. This impact of uncertainty has had the effect on Cambodia and the entire world. Simply closer of business and schools, recreation and travel has made its impact on people and the world of today. Again, if the speculation is of truer facts that the virus leaked from that of a Chinese laboratory, they have unleashed something of more destruction than that of their overpowering ignorant selves in the name of money, not only have they gained the few steps on the ladder to increase their world power, but made effects of the world economy.
