New sign showing view of south of island

La Seine area looking quite finished (from swan bridge). They’ve installed those cool wind turbine/solar lights. One’s already stopped… I give the rest 6 months tops.

Still growing

Other than progress on the Riviera (separate posts) and La Seine sections of the island, the most action is on the north tip where land reclamation is in full swing.

Growing

Diamond Island is growing. Literally.

A ring of land was made out into the water

A recent google sat image shows the ring of land stretching north of the island (to be reclaimed)

La Seine, Land Reclamation

Some more work on La Seine residential area and more land reclamation on the north end of the island.

This is one fancy island!

La Seine progress

Some more progress on La Seine. I just really like this lighthouse and will attempt to climb it at the first opportunity.

It may be the future luxury area of Phnom Penh but right now, horses like it best.
