What to Expect:

Cambodia ceased to be a French colony in 1953, but Phnom Penh has never lost its French feel. The French colonial architectural remnants have left Phnom Penh with a bedazzling blend of Eastern influences intertwined with fresh Western features. For a brief historical introduction to the city, travel by pedal-powered rickshaw known as a cyclo and explore a selection of well-known Khmer, French colonial, Art Deco, post-modern, royal buildings as well as some less obvious examples of religious architecture. This responsible tour is led by local architecture students and graduates and offers guests a unique insight into the city while also supporting the local community with job opportunities.
