Flood News Across the Country 2020

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.

Advice for those approaching Phnom Penh on national road 4 from the direction of Sihanoukville ; there have been delays due to problems caused by recent flooding. Posted today:
Please be informed that those who travel on National Road No. 4 to Phnom Penh in case of traffic congestion at the intersection of the wide road after the previous flooding, you can detour along a dirt road north of National Road No. 4. The gate of Ang Khmao pagoda (west of Thnal Teng market) returns to Street 51, with local authorities stationed at the turn point to indicate additional directions. Then you can travel up to National Road 5 through Oudong or the concrete road through Basithik mountain in order to enter Phnom Penh more easily.
