Golden Sorya Mall transformed into "Phnom Penh Pub Street"

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.

Drove past there about 08.30 this morning and all the bars next to this place were half full of skinny, middle aged crack whores and obese, geriatric long-noses on their 10th beer of the day.

Good luck cleaning up that cesspool.. :D

Just drove past now and I think the same people are still there 11 hours later. The north side does look kind of cool if it ever fills up that is.

"down-at-heel party girls and small-time drug dealers vied for the attention of mostly elderly and often decrepit Western male visitors"

I don't see any PP businesses refusing any dollars from all those elderly and often decrepit Western males. When I hit the point where I'm elderly and decrepit, I really don't anticipate trolling for whores and drugs. That's just me.

They have to try or they will fail. Higher drink prices and good security.

one of the very few and slight virtues of walkabou, was that they banned (some of ) the worst thieves and troublemakers. sometimes

If they do manage to clean the area of the riff raff the question is... where Will they go? They won't just cease to exist and i doubt they will reintegrate into normal society overnight. So i wonder which area/street will become the next GSM(of old).

Personally i liked the old GSM... was always interesting to watch the passing train wrecks with the occasional bout of free entertainment courtesy of the security guards and their latest victim.
