Cars in Cambodia

Recommended Posts

Thought I would do a thread on all the types of cars you see on a daily basis here in Phnom Penh. There are so many luxury cars here even though the import tax is huge, For example a Range Rover here is in the region of $280k so God only knows what a Lambo would be!!!!

Wow....I’m shocked TBH. Didn’t think even the wealthy were on that level in Cambodia yet. Damn the rich get richer......

A lot of "dubious" money flowing in Cambodia. Probably a good part of it from China ?

Most people in Thailand are under the misconception that Cambodia is a lot poorer than Thailand but there are some very wealthy people here. There is also so much foreign investment here now that PP has increased at an amazing rate in the 7 years I have been here.

Cambodia's way poorer than Thailand- I really enjoyed PP, but definitely poorer.

GDP per capita is much lower, and I'd question what the impact on the population of the investment in PP.  Many have had been evicted from their family homes to make way for new buildings.

No argument that there are extremely rich people there but seems to be a huge disparity between rich & poor (certainly no different from Thailand there)

Yes there is a huge divide, I think there are about 15 million people here and the average age is only 24 years old so you see it is a very young country still because of the set back of the Khmer Rouge in late 70's

And to think people are still condemning the (communist) government of Vietnam for their intervention, without which it would have been even worse.

Yes there does still seem to be a dislike of Viets here, I was hoping the the movie First they killed my father would make people realize but I don't think enough people saw it..
