For the third year, the French Embassy in Phnom Penh opened its gates to visitors on Saturday to mark the occasion of “Heritage Day”, an event which has taken place for more than 30 years in France and abroad at this time of year. This annual event gives the public the opportunity to visit buildings and places usually closed to the public or that are difficult to access. Visitors were granted access to several buildings inside the embassy, including the ambassador’s residence, as well as the park where people discovered the former gate that inspired a book and a movie on the events that took place in April 1975.
