Phnom Penh rated one of the worst livable cities

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.

Phnom Penh rated one of the worst livable cities

Good thing Shitsville was not part of the survey:
Widespread corruption, poor health care and a lack of adequate infrastructure continue to make Phnom Penh one of the least livable major cities in the world, according to the annual Global Livability Ranking, released on Thursday by the Economist Intelligence Unit.

Phnom Penh would be a brilliant city ... if it weren't for the filth spewed by a million motorbike exhausts - if (IF!) the bikers could all
buy cute little electric bikes [some hope!] PP would be one of the world's nicest and most liveable cities.

Remove the garbage, do not use sidewalks as parking lots, follow basic traffic rules, have a few parks and then it might move up a little in those rankings.

Until the day, God forbid, you have an emergency (fire, accident, etc.) and realize nobody will be coming.

You learnt how to tackle a blaze? Perform emergency surgery on yourself after a bike crash? That is pretty impressive :hattip:
