Stop At: Phnom Penh

Set off on this unique Phnom Penh architecture tour alongside a local architecture expert. Spend the morning focusing on buildings that reflect the recent history of the country. The selected structures were built in the 1950s and 60s, a time of cultural enlightenment and political growth in Cambodia. As the country was embracing the outside world, the architects blended international design and materials into local traditional styles of construction. The resulting buildings are, these days, recognized as artistic milestones. Many of these structures were abandoned during the turbulent Pol Pot regime. The guide will explain how this tragic era of Cambodian history affected the buildings, many of which were repurposed or damaged. Stop for lunch and another glimpse into the past.Wrap up this Phnom Penh architecture tour with a return to town in the early evening, armed with a deeper understanding of Cambodia and a greater appreciation of its architecture.
