  • PRESS / Apr, 2016 Five reasons I’m investing in Cambodian real estate It’s been eleven months to the date since I last departed Cambodia’s capital city of Phnom Penh. To say that this city, and this country, is no stranger to change would be an understatement. Thirty-seven years after a murderous regime left the country with their plans for an agrarian utopia in shambles, Cambodia is a frontier market that doesn’t entirely feel like a frontier market. It feels, well, like anywhere else in Southeast Asia, only with more grit. However, the grit is fast waning. In the tourist and expat-friendly parts of Phnom Penh, new shops and restaurants are opening quickly. It was only a year ago that I suggested that the window was closing on earning easy money from simple businesses like a restaurant. That window now appears to be closed. Just walking one mile from the city’s backpacker-filled riverside to my villa in the trendy BKK1 district, I noticed a number of new high-end restaurants. I’m told that one Chinese restaurant cost more than $250,000 to build. Read More
