An Iconic Establishment: Foreign Correspondents Club, Phnom Penh

A silent witness of Cambodian history,  Foreign Correspondents Club Phnom Penh speaks for itself, for its historical existence and past time in the 90’s where journalists, aid workers, UN officials, diplomats, even famous politicians had their elbows on its tables conversing about breaking stories, political updates and the country’s situations during that time.

For you who love history like me, this club is a must-visit. A wonderful sense of history is still noticeable; not to mention the vast view of the junction of the Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers that makes it one of the many historical landmarks in Cambodia.

    • Hi Adrian, thank you for the like. It was great being there, i directly imagined what happened back then – all the whispering and conservations of the journalists, politicians, diplomats even maybe famous ministers. The place has many old pictures as well of famous people and events.
