No sitting allowed: Pub street cleared


Police have made good on their threat to push back tables and chairs from the sidewalks of Siem Reap's popular Pub Street after a letter was distributed last month to bars and restaurants in the area ordering them to rein in their furniture. Alex Mills, co-owner of Funky Munky bar, told the Post that a large group of police gave businesses a warning on Monday before enforcing the regulation Tuesday morning. "If anything, it'll make it easier and open up the area more," Alex said, "But I dare say it won't take long before people start sneaking their furniture back out again." Municipal officers cleared  Phnom Penh's riverside pavement in January, citing the interest of walking tourists.
