Changes changes everywhere!

There is no area of Koh Pich that is not under construction. The whole island is developing at the same time! The most notable changes in the last couple months have been:
a) land reclamation – Koh Pich is growing! It is getting so big that it is expanding east within a stones throw of Chbar Ampov area across the Monivong Bridge and North that the ferry across the Mekong is starting to go around the north tip.
b) the construction site of the big tower is visible – not the 555m, 2nd in asia that we were hoping for but the Troya tower which is depicted on all the sinage
c) the most dramatic of all is the destruction of the Diamond Gate Bridge. I guess, the history of the trampling tradegy 1.5 years ago is too much to carry forward with Koh Pich’s new image.

The riverside near Koh Pich is starting to get developed.
