Top 10 Cambodian Websites

With the increasing number of internet users year by year especially on mobile phones, Cambodian presently are willing to know more about the world through online medias beside relying on the traditional ways, televisions, and radios. So, the website is playing more important role in delivering this kind of news to them.

You will ask for what are the top 10 websites in Cambodia?

If you want to find the 10 most popular websites in Cambodia, the top 4 go to foreign sites (#1 Facebook, #2 Youtube, #3 Google, #4 Google.com.kh - domain name in Khmer). Here, I would like to share only the list consists of top 10 websites that belong to Cambodian companies, collected data from Alexa (rank), SimilarWeb (traffic overview), Google PageSpeed (page speed for website), and Facebook (number of fans).

Note: All the websites are available in Khmer language and in news portal (8 sites mostly focus on entertainment,  1 site converts from the paper-based news, and another one specifies on health news).

The Top 10 Most Viewed Cambodian Websites

1. Sabay.com.kh

Sabay Digital Corporation is a leading digital media and entertainment group in Cambodia which formerly known as CIDC Information Technology was formed in 2007. Of course, young Cambodian will know this company by brand name 'Sabay' on its entertainment contents (Sabay News and Sabay Leng or Sabay Games, I could say that). Most traffic sources come from sharing on social medias, I think this reason why recently Sabay News portal has extended the channel to spread news on different categories using Facebook pages (Sabay News Entertainment, Sabay News Technology, Sabay News Social, and Sabay News Sport).

  • Total visits: 2 million on desktop & mobile web in April 2016

Khmerload was established in late 2011 by  a group of young Cambodians who believe in the role of Information Technology in advancing the society. For me, I think this website firstly gained popularity through spreading the hot sexy news, so-called 'Bekthlay' in Khmer language, on social media, Facebook. Since the visitors and popularity had gained enough, it gets the stand for business oriented such today.

The Top 10 Cambodian Websites

According to a 2015 research study by the Open Institute and the Asia Foundation collected in September 2015 shows that Cambodia’s phone market is already saturated, with over 94% of Cambodians claiming to own their own phone, and more than 99% being reachable through some sort of phone. The proportion of citizens using more than one phone was only 13.1% while one Cambodian in four uses more than one operator. These numbers are similar to those reported in previous years.

The results show that 63.3% of Cambodians own phones with Khmer script capability. The use of such phones is more common among men (67.6%) than women (49%) and more common in urban areas (67%) than rural (61.7%).

Some 39.5% of users were found to have at least one smartphone. The ability of phones to display Khmer is more common in smartphones (78%) than in dumb phones (56.3%). The capability of smartphones users’ ability to display Khmer improved with the education level of their owner.


It was found that almost a third of Cambodians have access to the Internet and Facebook and that most of the people in this group have their own Facebook accounts. Smartphones are by far the most common means of accessing Facebook; only 3% of users access the social media site solely through computers while 80% access it exclusively through phones.

Internet/Facebook use has risen to become in 2015 the second most important channel for Cambodians to access information—trailing the only TV (30% vs 24%)—having surpassed radio (20%) and continuing to gain market share yearly.

To increase the rate of adoption, the development of better text-prediction and input methods for Khmer script in phones is recommended.
