Cambodia, Hun Sen

King Sihanouk Memorial

King Sihanouk Memorial, Phnom Penh

King Sihanouk Memorial, Phnom Penh with Independence monument in the background.

The large house you can see on the right is the city residence of Hun Sen, or Samdech Akka Moha Sena, Padei Techo Hun Sen (“Lord Prime Minister and Supreme Military Commander”) as he prefers, and occasionally insists, the media refer to him as.

It is an enormous, ugly house, but Samdech Akka Moha Sena, Padei Techo Hun Sen is obviously thrifty with his cash- this and his other residences were all bought with a salary similar to that of a Phnom Penh English teacher.
