Trial passenger rail service to begin April 9

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.

Lyrics for Cambodia

You know I saw Ms Lao Si down along the tracks

She bought a load of skin whitener so she won't be turning black

Without loi, without loi, where would she be right now?

Well Phnom Penh Central station

And that Southern Shitsville date

Gotta keep on paying Mamasan

Cause you know that is her fate

Without loi...where would you be now?


Um, that's got the same rhythm as a ken sway poem. Very go

Where is the train station in SHV?

Is there a smoking section on the train?

Check Google maps. Very obvious and fairly central location.

Logically, shouldn't it be near the port ?
(Haha, trick question - "logically" !? )

Just follow the train , where it stops is either the railway station or a accident.

OK, I found the train station, but let's not tell anyone where it is. It should be kept a secret.

Lol, It's in a very handy location. Just turn up an hour early for a quicky at the chicken farm before you leave. It's just a bit further down form the port, you know, where all the railway tracks are. Just follow them. lol. Not sure if they have cleared some of the slums etc away from there for the grand opening, but I doubt it. So, you need to go past the entrance to the port, turn left at the slums, drive down about 50 mtrs and it's there in front of you. Right in front of the chicken farm (which is on the other side of the tracks ;) )

I am still interested to know if they have a goods section to transport motos, furniture etc? If they have one of those I would expect you can go there for a puff. I do in Vietnam. Do they allow you to pass between carriages?
