Khmer Architecture Tours
A delicious taste of modern history
What we say:
Khmer Architecture Tours run regular visits to Phnom Penh's fascinating but rapidly vanishing modern architectural sites. From Vann Molyvann's high-density housing project now slated for pull-down (his national theatre has already gone, sadly), to imposing-but-crumbling university buildings, and the enormous, Colosseum-esque Olympic Stadium, the tours will let you catch a glimpse of Cambodia's modern heritage -- some of it very little known -- before it disappears under the weight of Hun Sen's wrath. Now run almost exclusively by Cambodian architecture students, it's one way to say you don't want to see this happen and help people who care fight for the survival of important sites. Some tours are made by cyclo, some by bus and some just on foot. You can also download a high-res map from the site and make a tour on your own. Highly recommended.
