The French Watchtower

The French Watchtower sits directly opposite the town of Kampong Cham.

The watchtower has a clear view of the Mekong river and in the past if a foe was spotted a fire was burnt at the top of the tower to warn that danger was approaching.

It was built in the 1920’s and restored about 12 years ago.
