  • Plane Crash: Rescue Efforts Continue

    Expat Advisory

    Prime Minister Hun Sen said Tuesday he was traveling personally to where a PMT Air passenger flight had disappeared and was believed to have crashed as weather conditions worsened and hopes of finding survivors dwindled.

    Hundreds of military were scouring the jungle about 40 kilometers north of Kampot town Tuesday, so far unsuccessfully, for traces of the wreckage in a search personally led by Cambodian army commander-in-chief Ke Kim Yan and National Disaster Management Committee deputy president Nhim Vanda.

    Kampot lies about 150 kilometers south-west of the capital.

  • Jungle Search Yields Plane Crash Remains

    Pilot error may have been a factor in the passenger plane crash in south-western Cambodia that killed all 22 people on board, rescue workers said Wednesday.

    The PMT Air charter flight between the temple city of Siem Reap and the beach resort area of Sihanoukville disappeared Monday. After days of searching dense jungle in appauling weather, a search helicopter finally located the wreckage Wednesday.

    Rescue workers were airlifted into the area within hours but there were no survivors.

  • Phnom Penh Picnic

    As the afternoon draws on, just before the traffic on the Japanese Bridge reaches its crazy peak, the sun starts to throw long shadows from a grove of sugar palms and boys begin to bring their cattle back from an afternoon grazing to wash and drink at the edge of the wetlands.

    The sheer variety of restaurants available in Phnom Penh continues to supply me (and everyone else lucky enough to call this city home) with a beguiling array of choices every evening.

  • "Om Tuk" Cambodia's Water Festival

    Cat Barton

    Most people who have lived in Phnom Penh more than a year and have thus experienced an Om Tuk, flee the capital. The migrational patterns of the Khmer dictates all cities empty during Khmer New Year as dutiful urban-migrant offspring return to the paddy field from whence they sprang. At Om Tuk, all people, of all ages, from all provinces across the Kingdom descend upon Phnom Penh.
