Unfinished Buildings Abandoned by Chinese Investors Litter Cambodia

The Cambodian city of Sihanoukville was a major international resort destination before the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic crippled its tourism industry. The city is now littered with empty and half-finished “ghost buildings” abandoned by Chinese investors. According to local entrepreneurs, these unsightly gang-infested husks are keeping the tourism industry from making a comeback.
