'Khmer' refers to the ethnically native people of Cambodia, in the same way that 'Thai' refers to the people of Thailand. The Khmer's make up 90% of Cambodia's population.

Hence where the term 'Khmer Rouge' comes from. Rouge is obviously used because it was an old French colony and refers to the Communist ideas of the old ruling party "Khmer Rouge = Red Cambodians".

Really? Does it mean that Camko City is also a wireless haven, all cables underground including the gas pipelines...
I agree with you that buildings in FBGC are much higher...the truth is Shangri-la Hotel is constructing a 60-storey edifice in central FBGC, not including the Landmark Tower by Federaland, around 66-storey high and >300 m in height

By the looks of the renderings, I'm sure anything unpleasant to the eye is underground.

No problem

I have to say, I'm very impressed by all this development. Considering what the nation has been through, I can only wish them all the best in the future. I'm glad Cambodia's luck is turning around and hope it blossoms into a great nation.

Probably after 2011 or 2013, after Indonesia and Singapore host their SEA games, then Cambodia will have a chance.

Cambodia suppose to host the SEA game in 2011, but the prime minister calls off the plan due to the high cost.

US $120,000 is an acceptable price in Phnom Penh, and Camko City is a wealthy residential area in Cambodian standard . Some townhouses in Phnom Penh nowadays already worth more than half a million US.

In the market for a million-dollar penthouse suite? Thinking Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok or Singapore? Try Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh hits the heights
In the market for a million-dollar penthouse suite? Thinking Kuala
Lumpur, Bangkok or Singapore? Try Phnom Penh. Published on February
18, 2008

South Korean-funded Yon Woo Cambodia announced in January the plan to
offer Gold Tower 42, skyscraper apartments from about US$500,000
(Bt16.7 billion) to $1.6 million
, and the development - scheduled for
final completion in 2011 - will become the tallest in the city.

The Cambodian capital's rocketing real-estate prices have encouraged
construction to reach for the skies, government spokesman Khieu
Kanharith told Deutsche Presse-Agentur.

"Five years ago another company began planning a 32-storey tower,
which has yet to be built, on the outskirts of the capital, and we
expect many more such projects," Kanharith said.

David Simister, chairman of property consultant CB Richard Ellis
Thailand, agreed. He said that post-crisis Phnom Penh was now as
attractive a property development destination as Ho Chi Minh City.

"Rules are quite clear on the back of a strong government. Between
Thailand and Vietnam, Cambodia is quite liberal," Simister explained.

A condominium in Phnom Penh now sells for $2,000 per square metre,
approximately the same as the Bt75,000 which is quoted for
condominiums along Sukhumvit Road.
According to Simister, demand is
also strong as Cambodians are repatriating overseas earnings while the
number of foreign businessmen in the city is growing.

The property market there is set to expand further with the growing
tourism industry, following the expansion of the airport and the
marketing of new tourist destinations.

Simister said that due to contacts for consulting and marketing
services for properties in Phnom Penh his company would later this
year open an office there, in the wake of others in Danang and Ho Chi
Minh City.

He noted that foreign investors were now looking to do business in the
city, thanks to the relaxed market requirements. Phnom Penh's maximum
lease for foreigners is 99 years, against a maximum 70 years in
Vietnam and 30 years in Thailand. "In Thailand, the ownership issue is
not helpful for foreigners. Hopefully the new government will look
into that," he said.

Kim Tae Gon, general manager of Yon Woo Cambodia, told DPA: "The
investment climate is good. Cambodia is eager for development. We have
sold 40 per cent of our apartments in Gold Tower 42 off the plan
already
, and the majority of buyers are Cambodians, although Koreans,
Chinese and British have also bought
," he said.

Cambodia's building industry is booming on the back of double-digit
growth and hopes that revenue - and businesses - will begin rolling in
on the back of the expected oil and mineral revenues due to be tapped
within the next two to five years. A stock market is also in the
offing within a year.
