3-day Sea Festival to be held in Sihanoukville.

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.

Username Taken wrote:The only activities I've seen at Ochheuteal were students running races on Friday morning, cycling on Saturday morning, and that's all. Can't speak for other beaches or areas around the place, but the tourist influx is closer to 6,000 rather than 600,000. Very quiet/normal at Ochheuteal.
At the guesthouse/hotel there are plenty of rooms available.

Bong Sen was here yesterday, but he didn't have time to join me for a beer at Hotdigr's place. Maybe next time. :beer2:
While the action is mostly elsewhere, it's a far cry from half a million visitors plus viditors they hoped for. And it's organised in a way that people were just drying there cars around the backroads trying to find parking without having to then walk 1.5 km. Hopefuly it's better later today without HE there.

Isn't it what every khmer holiday is all about ? Enduring countless hours in a car before reaching a crowd ?

I swear half the people just drive around and around, makes sense in a way, when you can't afford much, the entertainment value that 2000r in gas can provide isn't too bad. (Crap, there was a lot of typos in my earlier post :facepalm: )

Yes quite aware of that. It's part of my 10000r date strategy. Drive around aimlessly for an hour then eat noodles, then back home.... 8)
Oun tos chi darleng, tos nham kuy teav neng, tos ey tos. Probably doesn't work with the bargirls though!
