Pich Bridge opened but number of visitors down

Translated from Khmer by Soch

After the offering ceremony to the
spirits (Krong Pealy) was completed, Pich Bridge was reopened for
traffic on 08 December. However, the number of visitors to Koh Pich
Island dropped by about half in comparison to before 22 November 2010
when the tragic accident took place. On Sunday 13 December, the number
of visitors to Koh Pich was quite large compared to the day after the
bridge was immediately reopened, but when compared to Sundays prior to
the accident, the number has dropped significantly. The majority of
visitors to the island are those who attend wedding ceremonies. As for
visitors to come in for entertainment or for shopping, their number is
very small, and the crossing of Pich Bridge is something they cannot
avoid since Hang Bridge is reserved for entrance to the island and Pich
Bridge is the only exit out of the island.
