Kampot seaport to boost tourism
Friday, 06 January 2017

Kampot province, which edges into the Gulf of Thailand, is set to be transformed into a tourist seaport with the construction of an $18 million marine ferry terminal funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), according to officials.

Soy Sinol, director of Kampot’s tourism department, told Khmer Times yesterday that the feasibility study and construction plans for the proposed seaport had been completed. “Bidding for the construction work will start this year and the port, with the marine ferry terminal, is set to be completed by the end of 2018 or early 2019,” said Mr. Sinol.

According to an ADB report on tourism in the Greater Mekong Subregion, the Kampot ferry terminal, to be located in Kampot’s Tek Chhou district, is expected to service 360,000 international and domestic tourists when it opens in 2018 and 442,000 by 2022.

He said the Kampot tourism department would be working with relevant government ministries to help develop a tourism complex on 200 hectares of land in the province.
“The new tourist area will be called ‘Kampot Thmey’ [New Kampot] and it will be connected to the new tourist seaport, with easy access to Kampot city.”...

There goes the last town with a quasi village ambience . Californification has destroyed the country I loved.

If it's the one I drive past everytime going Kampot, it's quite a few KM out from the town.
At least it might mean the old town shouldn't get bombarded with new high rise hotels and fucking casino's like SHV has,
Hopefully not anyway!

look on the positive side;
this might drive the hipsters out of town
