The French watchtower

Awesome views

What we say: 3.5 stars

The Kompong Cham Governor's house has a direct line of site to the watchtower and when a warning was needed a large fire would be lit in the tower announcing the pending danger.

Today it is used to alert the motodops of the arrival of a tourist bus.

If you are fine with heights, an incredibly steep staircase runs up the interior of the tower, allowing you to climb to the summit and enjoy the same views that the guards in the 1920s would have had.
