Long neglected by Western travellers, Phnom Penh became Cambodias permanent capital in 1866. It has been home to Iberian missionaries and French colonialists, with a stunning mix of traditional palaces, Buddhist temples and transplanted French architecture. In the 1960s Phnom Penh deserved its reputation as the most attractive city in Southeast Asia. But after 1970 all this was to change, and a terrible civil war was followed by the Khmer Rouges capture of the city in 1975. Since the defeat of Pol Pot in 1979, Phnom Penh has slowly recovered, once again attracting perceptive travellers.

El nombre de Phnom Penh no puede evitar evocar una imagen de lo exótico. Los resplandecientes chapiteles del Palacio Real, las ondeantes túnicas de color azafrán de los monjes y su exquisita ubicación a orillas del poderoso Mekong: desde la distancia, esto forma parte de las fantasías acerca de Asia. La capital de Camboya puede ser un ataque a los sentidos. Las motos circulan ajenas a los peatones, los mercados despiden olores acres, y mientras tanto, los sonidos de la vida, del comercio y de la supervivencia resuenan en las calles. Pero todo esto forma parte del encanto de esta ciudad. • Descubrir la colección de esculturas jemeres más exquisita del mundo en el Museo Nacional de Camboya. • Conocer la historia más oscura de Camboya y sus campos de exterminio en el Museo Tuol Sleng del Genocidio. • Visitar el Palacio Real, la sorprendente residencia del rey Sihamoni. Incluye: Puntos de interés, Actividades, Cursos, Circuitos, Fiestas y celebraciones, Dónde dormir, Dónde comer, Dónde beber y vida nocturna, Ocio, De compras, Alrededores de Phom Penh, Koh Dach, Udong, Tonlé Bati, Centro de Rescate de Fauna de Phnom Tamao, Phnom Chisor, Parque Nacional de Kirirom.

Army lieutenant colonel Sam Briscoe volunteers for a job in exotic, wartime Cambodia to escape the routines of Pentagon duty and an acrid divorce. His new job gains an unexpected dimension when the Army Chief of Staff assigns Briscoe a secret task while in Cambodia which only the Chief of Staff and an Assistant Secretary of State know about. Once in Phnom Penh, Briscoes immediate boss, Brigadier General Cleveland, orders him to eliminate phantom soldiers from Cambodian army payrolls. Cleveland also admonishes Briscoe against advising the Cambodians and talking to reporters, particularly American ones. Briscoe quickly discovers that the pay for the non-existent or phantom soldiers goes into the pockets of their commanders. This introduces him to the fraud and graft rampant in the Cambodian armed forces as well as the government. Briscoes no win job is further complicated by an instantaneous--but forbidden romance--withAmerican freelance reporter Beth Keller. Once the American ambassador, to whom General Cleveland reports, hears about the romance, he tries to blackmail Briscoe into coercing Beth to soften her scathing investigative reporting about diplomatic bumbling at the American Embassy. While inspecting Cambodian infantry battalions, Briscoe unwittingly crosses the grey line between advising and assisting about which Cleveland warned. Beth Kellers widely publicized article in U.S. media highlights Briscoes disobeying the U.S. Congressional edict, as well as his own generals admonition against advising. How Beth and Briscoe solve their personal problems, while balancing their jobs and precarious positions with the ambassador and general, add to the drama of the helicopter evacuation of Americans from Communist-besieged Phnom Penh. The struggle between the army officer, his general, the ambassador plus an embassy political officer stalking Beth ends with the evacuation. One of the four will be the last American escaping Phnom Penh. Another wont make it.

Founded in the fifteenth century, planned and rebuilt by the French, and then modernized and expanded in the era after independence, the city of Phnom Penh displays a diverse mix of styles. Here, early religious and vernacular buildings, the glittering structures of the Royal Palace, and colonial buildings of the French Protectorate (1863-1953) coexist with the gems of the 'New Khmer Architecture' of the 1960s. After the destructive period under the Khmer Rouge, the city went through a rebirth. It has seen rapid modernization and economic development in recent years, and its urban landscape is transforming at a breathtaking pace. This guide offers a comprehensive overview of Phnom Penh's built heritage, highlighting its ­history and architectural layers. In addition to covering better-known masterpieces, it also takes readers through the city's 'everyday architecture', revealing places off the beaten track. Illustrated with contemporary photographs and historical images, the book presents more than 140 works that illuminate the four major phases of development in the city's ever-changing urban history. It thus makes an important contribution to current debates on heritage preservation in the booming metropolis. Interviews with local experts present their individual perspectives on the city and place the buildings in a broader context.
