Has anyone had any update regarding the 60-Storey Project that was mentioned in the Phnom Penh Post. That would be great if the location and drawing of the project are posted here. Thanks

Cambodia is waking up, finally, after years of sleeping. Congrats! How's Cambodia, by the way, compared to Laos in terms of this kind of development?

I am afraid the financial meltdown will kill most of the projects planned or under construction. Too bad!! I have been so excited for while. Now it looks like everything goes up in smoke!!

Really? Are Southeast Asian economies being effect?
This Philippine real estate industry is actually benifiting from it... which means more buildings actually.

Cambodia Construction Booms... one of the foreign news said from one of the local papers here in Manila, but the author cited the poor working condition on the site which deteriorated as time goes by. He mentioned the absence of quarters for workers including helmets. One freak accident happened to a poor guy while working and instead of being brought to a hospital, he was fired due to carelessness... Is this report true enough! I can't imagine people working there without safety measures properly in place.

I am taking the common economic affect.
If the developer's stock price plummeted, their company is less valuable.
If their company is less valuable, they have less cash.
If they have less cash, they trim or eliminate business activities (construction acitivites).
You see the rationale here?

I think the Philippine construction boom is really benefiting from this meltdown, because it is a fact that Philippines is now the 2nd ranked BPO destination in the world next from India. More companies abroad are trying to tighten their belts by offshoring their businesses to lessen cost of doing business. Hence, If more offshoring will come to the Philippines due to this crisis, it means that more buildings will be constructed to accomodate BPO agents...Correct me if I'm wrong...But you are correct in saying that it may affect the construction activities in Cambodia...

I visited Cambodia for the first time two years ago, and I was enchanted. I spent most of my time in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap of course. I was very favorably impressed. The people of Cambodia are lovely, the food is excellant, and the cultural heritage and traditions of that country are wonderful.

Alot needs to be done, Phnom Penh has just been rated as the 2nd worst city in the world to visit by National Geographic Traveler magazine. How is that possible?

'Government indifference' has earned the capital the second-worst rating in National Geographic's 2008 destination survey

Photo by: HENG CHIVOAN

Phnom Penh’s Independece Monument bedecked with coloured lights is a key tourist attraction. AN annual National Geographic survey has rated Phnom Penh the "second-worst" city in the world to visit, putting its shortcomings down to "government indifference".

The 2008 "Places Rated" Destination Stewardship survey, announced this week by National Geographic Society's Center for Sustainable Destinations, based its ranking on how well cities endured the pressures of mass tourism, the ravages of nature and the onslaught of global development.

According to the iconic magazine, the charm of Phnom Penh has been "lost to uncontrolled urban growth and the outright greed of land speculation", one of the judges said, adding it was a "very sad story" its astute colonial urban planning had now all but disappeared.

Govt dismisses result
Kousoum Saroeth, deputy director of the Cambodian Board of Tourism, dismissed the survey, saying that development has an overall "good impact" on tourism.

"Right now we have many projects that are helping organise tourism events in Cambodia," he said Tuesday, adding that tourism was one of the big earners in Cambodia.

The survey, which was judged by an independent panel of 280 experts in travel-related fields from around the globe, asked participants to scrutinise 109 historic places - the theme of the 2008 survey.

They were also asked to evaluate the qualities that make a destination unique.
Earlier this month, architects and urban planners warned the government that major commercial development projects, such as the filling-in of Boeung Kak lake, were tarnishing the once architecturally-lauded city. But City Hall has insisted all plans were sustainable.

Phnom Penh will sit just above Central City, in the US state of Colorado, when the full list of cities is featured in the November/December issue of National Geographic Traveler magazine. It was labelled worst because, judges claim, casinos stole its charm.

The reason we was rated the 2nd worse because we allow skyscrapers built in the middle part of the city who will destory to french colonial building! But I dont think it's a proper measure anyway!

The property sale has been slow down, and the price for the property and land went down by at least 10% over the past few months.
