First New Cardamom Road Ready

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.

It's fantastic, now you can transport thousands of pangolins a day compared to the handful of half rotten starving ones that were coming out of the forest before. It's far more efficient and is eco-friendly and shown to cause little suffering.

Took a nice drive though the Cardamons about 3 years back, nice change of scenery from the normal flat land dry
or flooded rice fields, but that road calls for another road trip back though there.

The road must have been new and the bends was fun going up another thing the local dogs love it, never seen so many sleeping on the road and they don't move as you go around them hahaha

Need to crank up the big bike and get down there before it's F.U.B.A.R'd, run those curves.
Definitely

"There will also soon be the opening of National Road 10 linking Samlot, Battambang to Koh Kong"

Fingers crossed its a decent tarmac road.
