    Found this new video showing aerial views of the Dara Sakor project. Here's the video description from the uploader:

    Spending 2 days inside the Dara Sakor project, we explore the development that are happening in this Koh Kong region.
    The Union Road cutting through the Botum Sakor National Park
    The Dara Sakor Airport
    The Long Bay Casino hotel (the only one with some activity and construction still going on)
    The Dara Sakor Resort & golf course
    and the ghost casino & apartments which seem abandonned since 2020...
    We get a full view of the resort, some abandoned and ongoing construction sites, and the airport which is under construction.

    I came across this article in Indonesian stating that the chairman of MNC Group showcased the resort plans to British ambassador Owen Jenkins (from what I can gather on Google Translate). There's a photo with the resort layout below:

    Unstable weather conditions in the UAE have forced some pavilions to close due to damage from the heavy rains.

    Organisers at Expo 2020 Dubai are working round the clock to ensure pavilions stay open despite the heavy rain in recent days.

    Several were forced to temporarily close as staff worked to repair damage caused by the downpours.
    Also want to add that in the past couple of weeks especially during the holidays, some pavilions have been forced to shut due to COVID outbreaks amongst the staff.

    Dubai's Expo 2020 said that virus outbreaks among staff may force some parts of the fair to "close temporarily for deep cleaning and sanitization," without elaborating on the scope or the location of the infections.
    I personally haven't been there in a while, waiting for the weather to be better and the cases to mellow down a little bit.

    Update on construction:

    The Osaka prefectural and city governments on Dec. 21 announced a plan for developing a casino-centered integrated resort expected to open in 2029 that will be backed by 20 major companies.

    Well-known firms such as Panasonic Corp., Suntory Holdings Ltd. and West Japan Railway Co. will invest in the project, according to the details announced.

    The resort is planned to be built on the artificial Yumeshima island in Osaka Bay.

    But the city will need to shoulder about 79 billion yen ($692 million) for soil-improvement measures, including site decontamination and control measures against soil liquefaction, according to the plan.

    Quick update: Saudi ACWA secures $1.33bn to power The Red Sea Project

    Saudi-listed ACWA Power closed $1.33 billion financing for its renewable project to power The Red Sea Development Co., known as TRSDC, according to a filing.

    The debt facility closure was arranged by a consortium including Al Rajhi Bank, Banque Saudi Fransi, The Saudi British Bank, Arab Petroleum Investment Corporation, Standard Chartered Bank, and Riyad Bank.

    The utility developer was awarded the contract to drive and operate the renewable power-based multi-utilities infrastructure to serve The Red Sea Project, or TRSP, back in November.

    TRSDC, fully owned by the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, will be developing the world's largest sustainable tourism destination that will run on 100 percent renewable energy.

    Been waiting for this one. Just in time for the National Day holiday/long weekend coming up.

    Yas Bay Waterfront, a vibrant leisure and entertainment district on Yas Island, will open on December 1.

    The destination will bring new dining concepts to Abu Dhabi, including the Ibiza-style beach club, Cafe del Mar, known for its distinctive ambience, music and Mediterranean cuisine; Paradiso, a globally renowned Mediterranean restaurant helmed by Nicole Rubi, the woman behind La Petite Maison, and Michelin-lauded chef Pierre Gagnaire; and critically acclaimed Japanese street-food concept, Akiba Dori.

    Holiday Inn opening pushed to January 2022

    The launch of Holiday Inn Resort Ho Tram Beach (pictured), a new hotel at the site of The Grand Ho Tram Strip casino resort in Vietnam, has been postponed to January 2022, the operator of the complex has told GGRAsia. That was because of travel restrictions linked to the Covid-19 situation in Vietnam, despite the new accommodation being ready to open.

    In an emailed reply to GGRAsia, a property spokesperson said the new Holiday Inn tower was “ready to take guests,” however its launch was postponed “due to the current Covid-19 situation in Vietnam.”
