It is a big monument in the middle of a big roundabout, not much more than that. It certainly is a landmark in Phnom Penh, but it is not a "visitable" place, just a pass by spot. The boulevard at Preah Sihanouk starting from the...More

This is an interesting structure. There is very little else to report on this. It's just an interesting to look at structure.

Our tuk tuk driver stopped off on the way to the Killing Fields to allow us to see this. It doesn't take long to see this attraction.

Best way to see this is by tuk tuk doing a drive by photo shoot. The roads are busy and there is little else to do around the site.

This is like a huge structure in the centre of the city. The surroundings & liveliness near this place is very good & you can easily spend couple of hours exploring all the nearby lanes
