Koh Pich ( Diamond Island ) is a river island in the center of Phnom Penh, a dream of the shareholders of Canadia Bank that would  become a micro Singapore.

Here the Khmer Clans celebrate thousands weddings every year. It is a Million Dollar business Industry.

In the city of Phnom Phen there is also the Mondial Centre , built in 2002 on land in Mao Tse -Tung Boulevard where there was the thieves market . It has a capacity of 5000 people and has a 500 tables in 17 rooms. A table for 10 costs 20 to $ 22. For dinner you have to add about $ 100 to the table. The high Khmer bourgeoisie celebrates at the Diamond Island Convention & Exhibition Center, the new complex houses ten Diamond Island rooms which can accommodate a total of 2,000 people, but the rates are much higher than the Mondial center: the minimum is $ 250 for a table of ten ( dinner included ) , the average of about $400.

Diamond Island is also the new place where the couples come to spend their most intimate moments and fantasise about their wedding.
