Sihanoukville is a Mess; Authorities React

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.

Looks like the beach between Otres 1 & Otres 2.

Used to be a lovely quiet walk along there until about 2015-16 when Otres got busy

I would like to see how the Snooky Occhy beachfront looks now ? last time I saw it was in Jan 2018, after they had knocked down all the beach bars for about 250m from the pier, and had the green metal sheeting wall put up around the empty plot of land

Some parts still has the green metal sheeting wall and construction on going behind but on some plots nothing happening. Government also built these new huts for restaurants and bars.

Regular cleaning:

Are the huts tenanted during this downturn? Are the tenants primarily Khmer?

Haven't been in city since downturn started so I don't know. But yes, I would say tenants are primarily locals as was the clientele the last time I was there.

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.
