Phnom Penh Prepares for the Water Festival.

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.

"well.... Isn't Vietnam down stream?"

Yes and so is much of Cambodia.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

‘The trash just floats away’

http://www.phnompenhpost.com/national/t ... loats-away

Along a riverbank in the capital yesterday, garbage was strewn in a thick carpet 12 metres across and 10 metres long, spilling down from the embankment’s crest and directly into the water below.
A similar site had provoked outrage just a day before, when a video showing workers sweeping trash from the Water Festival directly into the Tonle Sap river went viral. But for residents of Derm Sleng, a village in the capital’s Chbar Ampov district that remains off the garbage collection radar, such a sight has been the norm for years.


shame really, seems to be just a way of life.

From the article the government/authorities obviously need to do more by placing rubbish bins everywhere and having Cintri collecting and disposing of rubbish more regularly/reliably.

You can't really even start a 'Clean City' or "Keep Cambodia Clean' programme without that in place first. A Cambodian friend of mine was bemoaning how dirty his country is, just last week.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

one of the rubbish bins along the board walk during the festival. it's supposed to have a bag in it, but nobody used it anyways.
