I understand, that there are a lot of Malaysian companies dealing in Cambodia.
Please correct me if I'm wrong here. I always thought the reason for airlines like MH & MI to serve Siem Reap is largely for easy excess to Angkor, which is a leisure route rather than business. The latter is served by flights to Phnom Penh instead.

Triple Seven, how are the relations between Thailand and Cambodia now? I think there is still a strong economical link, isn't it?
Honestly I don't know much. There are sporadic tension between the Thai govt and that of Hun Sen regime. The latest, IIRC involves the Angkor Watt. Someone on the Thai side offended the Cambodians with a remark that claims the Angkor as being Thais (if someone is familiar with this please fill in for me). Anyway, owing to geography and cultural similarity the two countries will have to have strong economical links (like it or not). Mutual benefits.
