Why Koh Pich (Diamond Island) is special ?

Koh Pich, which in Khmer means “Diamond Island”, sits at the mouth of where the Tonle Bassac river’s journey begins towards Vietnam. The island, which was formed by alluvial silt deposits, didn’t even exist until about half a century ago. Local legend has it that a boat sank where the island is today, steadily accumulating silt and sand until the island was formed.


From these humble beginnings, Koh Pich has become a showcase for Phnom Penh’s (and developer OCIC’s) growing developmental ambitions. The two-kilometre-long island is home to a golf driving range, the city’s largest international exhibition centre, a fire station, a new city hall and a theatre.
