Police "check-points" suspended immediately

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.

i have been sitting in a pop up shop for 3 days in Kampot on riverside and have had at least 10 chinese asking me if i was the owner and want to sell.
Does anyone know if Kampot/Kratie/Battambang got the UNESCO listing last year for their French colonial buildings ?

If not, could be some threat to the future of the colonial shophouses in Kampot if the Chinese developers move on the place ?

This is all I could find about that. If there's been no further news, I guess the listing didn't go through. You would have to do a search.

It would be a real shame if they destroyed Kampot, but I thought the idea was to set up a "new Kampot"or Kampot "riviera" which is quite a way from the town ?

Even if they were not UNESCO listed and the Chinese pulled all the building down,,, We will still have photos of the buildings to hang on the wall and look at.

That's as good as it gets.
