One of Phnom Penh’s most recognizable landmarks is getting a makeover. Built in 1937, its Art Deco dome is one of the coolest looking buildings I have ever seen.
It is now being renovated to its former glory by the French Development Agency at the sum of $5.5 million. The first of three market renovations planned by the FDA (Psar Chas and Psar Kandal being the other two), it is estimated to take 18 months to complete.
The first of three stages is now complete and market vendors are now moving back.
