Huge Chinese influx divides Sihanoukville

Cambodia: An ongoing massive influx of Chinese into the coastal city of Sihanoukville is generating mixed reactions among local residents.

The Chinese began flocking to Sihanoukville about three years ago and their population is now estimated to be the same as that of Cambodian residents, or around 80,000, according to Mayor Y Sokleng.

But other municipal officials suggest the number of Chinese is actually two or three times higher, with the city having been transformed from a sleepy beach town into a bustling city complete with traffic jams.
