No air pollution in PP, ministry says
May 5, 2018
The Environment Ministry rejected the claims that Phnom Penh is suffering from serious air pollution, which is detrimental to people’s health. It asked the public to not be concerned about this issue.
On Friday, May 4, the ministry issued a statement rebutting claims that the capital has an air pollution problem. These claims have caused some unease, especially among tourists and open-air vendors, as to possible affects to their health.
The ministry stated that since 2003 it monitors air quality in larger cities, like Phnom Penh, to ensure public health.
It has installed equipment to monitor air-borne fine particulate matter that may contribute to respiratory complaints. All parameters showed that there is no heavy air pollution in Phnom Penh or other cities.

I remember driving from Pattaya to Bangkok...huge power station on the way, little wind...terrible haze, never saw anything like that here. But give it time...
I'm more worried about noise pollution and the driving, tbh.
