Sightsee by Cyclo
In addition to the gloomy sights, such as the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Killing Fields, Cambodia’s capital also features a surprising mix of Khmer and French colonial architecture.
What better way to explore the highlights of Phnom Penh than by cyclo on our new tour, ‘Architectural Cyclo Tour in Phnom Penh‘?
Our local expert will explain the history, the structure and the different styles of each building, such as the Old Post Office, the Railway Station and the art-deco Central Market, completed in 1937 and featuring a 26-metre-high central dome.
Cambodia’s most famous architect, Vann Molyvann, had a huge influence during the 1950s and 1960s in developing many of the structures we still admire today. His unique style became known as New Khmer Architecture.
