It goes

L ( lobby ) then 2 > 3 > 4 etc etc

Some cultures skips "unlucky number" floors. USA skips 13 and just goes from 12 to 14.
I think China skips 4th floor

For example, If you already give money to buy an new apartment at the first floor in a new building that is under construction. After, they give you keys and you discover your first floor is in fact ground floor for Cambodian ! Oh, You are in illegality ! So you can loose appartment or something else like that because the law is clear foreigner can't buy at ground floor.
Very good point.

How to count the floor in Cambodia.

We as Cambodian who live in Cambodia normally call the floor that stick to the ground is " Ground Floor ", the floor is under the ground is " Under Ground Floor ", the first floor is the floor above the ground floor, the second floor is the floor above the first floor and so on.

So we start from ground floor, first floor, second floor, and so on. Why I start with ground floor because in Cambodia there are not many building have the under ground floor, just now. I hope our friends here get it now.

Good Luck for Khmer New Year !

Just wondering any member of this thread living in Phnom penh right now? Please identity yourself or maybe help us with any update photos of current projects...like phnom penh tower, de castle, or may other construction sites. I think we should form a small base or member in phnom penh to update any projects or photos update in pp.
What do you think of this idea?

If it goes underground then that's B1 > B2 > B3, higher the number, the deeper it is.

Where was that photo of GT 42 taken at SeeMacau?


I'm kind of disappointed that the government allow this kind of building to be placed in it's current location, that is, in the center of Phnom Penh around important Khmer buildings, temples, and monuments. You can see GT 42 from nearly all spots in Phnom Penh and it's only 18 storey so far. Imagine when it's finish, GT 42 is going to stick out like a sore thumb.

On the top floor (3rd floor) of an office building, very close to the independent monument.

The Rose Condo is so visible if you view towards the independent monument from Norodom Boulevard. Height restriction only impose to area within 400 meters from the independent monument.

It is actually very close, Star River is on the left hand side of IFC and Rose Condo is on the right hand side.
