PHNOM PENH - Members of the royal family, including King Norodom Sihamoni and the widow of former king Norodom Sihanouk, will leave for China later this month, following mourning ceremonies for the late monarch, officials said Monday.

The king has been invited to Beijing in a show of support for China and continued relations with Cambodian royalty, royal officials said.

“The Chinese government invited the king to show him that the relationship between China and Cambodia is still the same after the King Father passed,” said Nhiek Bun Chhay, secretary general of the royalist party Funcinpec.

Funcinpec President Keo Puth Reaksmey and his wife will also travel with the royals, Nhiek Bun Chhay said.

Prince Sisowath Thomico, former adviser to the late Sihanouk, said King Norodom Sihamoni and Queen Mother Norodom Monineath will have their normal medical check-ups in Beijing, which take place every two years.

Cambodia is thought to produce the best wild honey in Southeast Asia, mainly due to its climate and topography. Most of it is harvested informally and sold cheaply at local village markets. Now, one company is helping some of the country's poorest people by employing them to hunt for honey, then selling it commercially. (AP, Koh Kong)
