HistoryEditAfter the Spanish invaded Kimbactu, they founded a settlement at the west of Kimbactu, Kimbactu City in 1601. Kimbactu was a tourist city, until the Qing Dynasty started to invade Greater Phaluhm for oil, spices and cotton revenues. This started the US and UK dispute of the Greater Phaluhm islands.
Kimbactu was annexed by the Chinese as part of the Chinese-Phaluhm war.Phaluhm reported this incident to the UN, as an illegal seizure of land. The US and its allies mounted an assualt to retake the city back. The Kambular dispute ended in 1972, but not the Kimbactu incident. In 1984, Chinese tanks broke the buffer zone and tried to retake the city, but was quickly reclaimed as the army heavily outnumbered the Chinese forces protecting East Kimbactu. Tensions have relaxed over the 21st century but is still tense.
Kimbactu's tourism has declined since the 70s because of the tension between China and Phaluhm. Beaches and hotel resorts have been destroyed and abandoned in 1984, but there are more beaches and hotel resorts under construction. It is known for its costal scenary.
