Our guide Kanga was a well informed architect and extremely enthusiastic about the architectural heritage of Phnom Penh. Highly recommend doing the Vann Molyvann-focussed New Khmer Architecture 1960s tour, but the colonial tour is also extremely interesting and you get to see inside some amazing...More
