Phnom Penh Before Sunset

Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, has slowly emerged as a major city in Southeast Asia over the past five hundred years, from the Khmer Empire’s decline in the 15th century through French colonization and the terror of the Khmer Rouge regime. Today, Phnom Penh is rapidly changing and is home to over 2 million people. Here is a series of photos taken in Phnom Penh before and during sunset.
