The seventh Vespa Rally Tour de Phnom Penh will be held Monday to celebrate Cambodia’s 56th Independence Day and promote road safety.

The tour starts at 2:30pm at the railway station in Phnom Penh and will head along Russian Federation, Mao Tse Toung, Monivong and Sihanouk boulevards and finish at the Independence Monument.
