Yesterday morning they held a ceremony to mark the beginning of construction of the tourist port in Kampot. There’s a picture of the design here:

Jesus, you're slower than the Saudi news team, they're only 8-24 hours behind the rest. OK sometimes a couple of days too.

Is this off highway 4 or the opposite side of the river down from town?

The last time that I was in Kampot it was about April 2004, I will probably be there for one night next week, I imagine that a few things have changed since my last trip there ?

I like that area, Kampot and Kep, bit ghostly, to think this was a sort of Riviera for the French in the 30's
It's quite laid back too, few oddball barangs here and there, but nothing out of the ordinary.
I stayed at a new hotel built last year, with nice views over the river.

Its the tourist boat port around 6km downstream (towards the coast) from Kampot city. Cement wharf already built before work temporarily halted.

The other one in the news atm is the Try Pheap/Chinese consortium building a deepwater seaport between Veal Rieng and Kampot.

I think there's going to be a lot of construction for industry and tourism hitting Kampot from now on.

Sorry, Veal Renh.
So the deepwater port is off that stretch of R3, closer to kampot end.

All the Chinese moves and grand plans were initiated well before Trump decided to sink the world's economies by imposing tariffs and embargoes on friends, foes and former allies.

I wonder what effect the inevitable economic slowdown will have in Chinese outflows and investments in the country.
