Phnom Penh Plans to Clear Shops From Streets, Sidewalks

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.

Most likely, It's actually doubled in the last four years from 1.5 to around 3 million. I moved out to Chroy Changvar 4 years ago, and in the last 2 years the driving conditions have gone from bearable to suicidal.

"The last recorded population census was conducted in 2012, yielding a total of slightly over 1.5 million people."

"Pa Socheatvong, Phnom Penh’s governor, last year said that the population could reach three million by the end of this year." (2016)
