New $60m amusement park for Cambodia
Park will feature different international areas
Cambodia is to get a new $60m amusement park in Phnom Penh, featuring different internationally-themed areas.
Okhna Thai Mengly, CEO of developer the Peng Houth Group, said the park will cover eight hectares and will also have a conference hall and wedding halls. The design will be inspired by European theme parks and will feature big trees and a walkway along the river. They plan to build three bridges connecting both sides of the river.
“Regarding the management of the area, we will separate it into many different styles of Europe in each area. For instance, Area One will be Scottish and others will have German middle-age designs,” he said.
“Area Two houses the designs from Holland and France, representing the rise of civilization. Area 3 has Italian river designs and other areas. Every building near the river has a multi-national restaurant, with food from Europe, China, Japan, Cambodia and others.”
Thai Mengly went on to say that the project will be done creatively with an eye toward winning two international awards. The company is seeking to get the 5-star best park design award and the Cambodia Best Park Development award from the International Property Awards, which is based in England.
“The project will welcome Peng Houth’s residents and the public, who wish to enjoy leisure and healthy food,” Thai Mengly said. “The company is interested in bring the project to life in order to provide a clean, relaxing area as well as restaurants to the residents of Borey Peng Houth and the public. We want to contribute to Phnom Penh’s development by delivering a new, clean project for local and international tourists who have never been to Cambodia.”
