Once upon a time… French influence

Kampot town - South Cambodia

It is probably impossible to get rid of one’s colonial past, and you could ask yourself if the past is just a part of your Culture like anything else.So why not embrace it and be proud of it?

Around South-East Asia the French have been very active, and I must say that the most of the beautiful architecture (the houses or areas that would jump to the eye and stick out) are French. Around Cambodia for example many of the quaint areas, are the streets where some of the French colonial houses ‘survived’. Well they mostly could use a bit of paint or renovation, but still, the charm is there – and it changes from temples (the only other buildings with architectural value, often).
