A Taiwanese funded toxic waste dump will coincidentally be constructed about thirty kilomtres away.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

There goes the hood.

Say goodbye to the nice little town you used to know.

Say goodbye to reasonable prices, say goodbye to relative quiet, say goodbye to non-mafia style motos/tuk-tuks.

Say goodbye.

It's called 'development'.

Definition: prices go crazy, a few make a shit load of money in a short time, crime increases exponentially, town gets crowded out, place ends up filthy with trash, prostitution, drugs, late-night bucket parties, traffic fucked

Another victory for rampant capitalism!

Once Burger King and domino's open in SHV, the Gonk will surely backtrack on his Kampot living fantasy...
Kampot should be reserved to retirees and post-modern flower power people...

Another useless money scam in Cambodia. The ADB sure gets taken for a lot of expensive rides. Tourists will want to know, "where are the beach's." Answer: They are over in Sihanoukville where the big cruise ships dock. The only use for it would be a container port with a rail spur that cuts off a lot of KM's from offloading in Snooky, will actually be used and that may circumvent the "truck mafia" in Snooky. Get the container trucks off Hwy #4 and they have my vote.
