One Single Thing

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Of course huge parks are the breathing lungs that make any capital city enjoyable.

Central Park , N.Y., Hyde Park and numerous others in London. Green capital cities all over Europe. Beautiful!

Nothing now in Cambodia. A wasteland. The government here would sell fresh air to their own people if they could.

Sihanoukville:

1) The police enforcing traffic laws.
2) Taco Time.
3) All containers that come into the port and the beer (swill) brewed on the hill will be transported to PP by railroad.
4) The Fire Department will get a decent budget and not be put into someone's pocket so that they can actually have equipment to put out fires and the firemen don't have to have a second job to survive. (no charging people to fight fires.) (The port fire dept. will have mutual response/help the city fire dept.)
5) Last , but not least, Sihanoukville will get a decent hospital with actual trained doctors.

This has also been one of my longtime dreams.

What do u call all of Riverside?
Wat Phanom ( ok not as big as Central park or Golden gate park but......)
15 minutes South -East of PP ur in the country

Compared to back in the early 2000 the country has improved alot for most people.

I think we can all agree the city has improved in many ways, but lack of greenery is certainly a problem.The only places with a bit of green are remnants of the French urban planning days. Watch Phnom is tiny, but just imagine if each Kahn has a similar park with big old trees and all. It would be great (and reduce congestion near the Riverside on Sundays...).

A Bus, TUK TUK and Moto only section ( larger by toll) of The Riverside, to promote larger vehicles. Make Norodom Blvd and Monivong Blvd opposing one way circuit

Toll revenue pays for community little picking.
