Ban on heavy good vehicles before and during Sea Festival

Kampot provincial governor Cheav Tay announced a ban on heavy goods vehicles and concrete trucks mobilised in Kampot city for more than ten days until the Sea Festival ends.

In an announcement released on Friday, Mr Tay instructed all cities and districts governors, and businessmen that all heavy good vehicles should immediately be banned from now on until December 23, adding that authorities must take action if anyone acts against the announcement.

“Mainly, Kampot city governor and Toek Chhou district governor must ensure and prevent the activity of vehicles carrying dust or sand in the area during this period,” he said. “After the Sea Festival, all activities are allowed to resume.”

In a separate announcement, Mr Tay also banned explosion of rocks at any construction site from 6am until 6pm on December 20-22, which is the time for the celebration of Water Festival.

“We must ensure safely, and public order for government officials, diplomats, national and international tourists who will attend the festival,” he said.

According to Tourism Minister Thong Khon, this year’s Sea Festival is held under the theme: ‘Clean City, Beautiful Bay, Healthy Tourism’,

Yes, I remember well road 48 was repaired for last years sea festival, now it's starting to deteriorate once more. From road 4 onto Kampot road 3 at the bottom of Bokor is in a bad state.

Cambodia’s first Food Street opens in Kampot

Kampot this week opened the first area in Cambodia dedicated exclusively to street food.

Food Street was officially inaugurated Wednesday, offering local delicacies and targeting mostly tourists.

The launch took place just two days ahead of the annual Sea Festival, which this year is held in Kampot. The festival is expected to attract at least half a million tourists.

Kampot’s Food Street will be the first of many, each one in a different province and highlighting the province’s cuisine, authorities have confirmed.

It is a government initiative that aims to lure more tourists to the Kingdom by offering high-quality local dishes prepared with high hygienic standards.

The Kampot version of the initiative features 55 stalls with scrumptious local dishes.

Speaking at the launch, Tourism Minister Thong Khon said Food Street promotes hygiene in the preparation of street treats.

LOL
personally, i find Cambodian street food limited, not tasty and lacking in good hygiene

Now compare that to thai street food, ( and for a fantastic experience the street food held nightly in Pai)
BUT guess we cant compare the two now can we??? :beer3:

It's very, very, very quiet here.

But today is also a working day, so I suspect tomorrow will be ballistic.

I lived in Kampot all of 2018...I can't imagine 500,000 people hanging out there. Imagine the cleanup effort? Traffic? The power grid?
Glad I moved.
