Things are looking a bit different at the beach :)

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

OK here's the next question, [ on behalf of timmy ]

Does anyone know what the name of the tree is on the left,,,, The one with two blue bell fruit on ?

the sihanoukville tourist association has made an enormous impact in cleaning up the beaches and town.
they have successfully engaged the locals in many weekend cleanup drives.

for some reason their efforts have been under reported.

they are also organising a surf lifesaving initiative with CPR training right now to try and prevent drownings.

it is a fantastic group of locals and expats who make a real impact.

People will be driving motos on both paths making it dubious for those sitting in chairs with children

I got told last week by a Cambodian bar owner past the old Police station they will have to move back soon as well but will remain open. She did not say when but I guess they will start sooner rather than later.

Yeah, as soon as it's all finished around the new Pub Street it will continue on down the beach

Thanks, never realised that had been a police station. Every time I walk past it, I look at it & think what a prime property location on the beach & wondered why it was a ruin
