Cambodia-Vietnam Soldiers Monument
Another historical monument
What we say:
Northeast of the Independence Monument heading towards the Royal Palace, this monument was built to a Vietnamese design in the late 1970s. Following demonstrations two decades later, the area surrounding the monument was dubbed Democracy Square. Today it is still used for political gatherings -- when the government grants permission, of course -- although the most common events are the evening shows that take place toward Street 268. The square features fountains lit up at night with laser lights during holidays and on special occasions.
