It's Heritage Day; what to do and see.

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

On Heritage Day, see another side of Cambodia’s history

28 September 2017
Heritage Day is this Saturday, meaning that for the third time in Cambodia, various historical sites in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap will be welcoming members of the public within their gates. This year, the Residence of the British Ambassador to Cambodia, the Residence of the Australian Ambassador to Cambodia, Agence Française de Développement (AFD), the UNESCO office, the Lycée René Descartes, the Royal University of Fine Arts, the Phnom Penh City Hall, and the Raffles Hotel will be open in Phnom Penh, while the Conservation of Angkor and the other Raffles Hotel will be open in Siem Reap.

Heritage Day began in France in 1984, and has been ongoing in Europe and in several French Embassies since then. It celebrates European history and, outside of Europe, cultural exchange.

Visitors will be given guided tours of some of the buildings, but opening hours and the terms and conditions of the visit are set by each individual institute. Participants can register online for institutions where RSVPs are required. Links can be found on respective Facebook pages.

The schedule for Heritage Day is as follows: http://www.phnompenhpost.com/lifestyle/ ... as-history
