Asian demand for cement destroys stunning cliffs in Cambodia

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

This picture defines nouveau riche.

Fucking ugly car for that much dosh, way better-looking options available.

In around 2008 I visited a villa with 2 swimming pools, 8 bedrooms...and there were chickens at the back of the kitchen, wandering in and out of the house

That limestone quarry is place near Kampot with a dark cloud over them.

What was once a lovely tourist site is being ground to rubble.

Yes, we need more heat-storing, pretentious concrete buildings, at ANY cost.

Yeah, let's reduce another nice day trip from Kampot to rubble.

Isn't that one of those "guarded" installations, with security guards that don't want foreigners around?

I remember, guards, gates, bars, and forcibly shoving hospitality out of Cambodia.

Name and shame these destructors to the environment.

I mean, unless if they used the concrete for a dam, and created a pristine, thriving lake open to picnickers ... ok, worth it.

But if they're a bunch of earth-gouging, hill-blasting polluters and nature rapists ... maybe we need an Erin Brockovich.

The natives are helpless to these pricks.

Hope they all had their clothes on, or was it while a porn movie was being made.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
