Timber Magnate signs for Kampot International Port Construction

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.

Accommodate 1 million passengers? How many cruise ship passengers are there in this region? Averaging 83k per MONTH coming to Kampot...whaaaa? There are not enough seats/beds/etc. to fit all of them.

Investors will be glad you pointed that out, saying we need more guesthouses and hotels ,,, specially ones that have a casino.
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.

Newkid, agreed. After the exodus from Snooky (which now includes every single one of my friends there) I think the general consensus was Kampot would have at least a few years before it was fucked over too. Now what? Sure doesn't look good.

About the only thing you can be sure of is the new port WILL NOT be completed by the end of the year!

Most coastal cities are doomed to be the next Sihanoukville.

I really wonder how Cambodia is going to maintain the reputation of being pristine and wild if the whole country looks like a shitty version of Macau.

The expat refugees are just going to run to the next country on the list with cheap beer, rent, and women.
