Whether you fancy yourself a building buff or not, architecture in Indochina will definitely impress. Ancient temples, traditional teak houses, brutalist Communist structures, elegant colonial mansions and mid-century masterpieces all make an appearance. It sounds strange, but it all seems to work, and the results keep each and every location unique and worth visiting.
Of particular note are the French colonial structures of Vietnam and Cambodia, as well as the mid-century marvels, specifically those of Vann Molyvann, who pioneered this modern style in Cambodia. Some buildings are in various states of restoration, or just complete disrepair (the beach town of Kep being a prime example).
Whether you choose to visit these wonders with a guide, or just explore on your own, you are bound to come back with some great photos, and maybe a desire to purchase that Eames chair you’ve had your eye on for so long. We know a few great pigs all over the region who have detailed knowledge of these various structures, and who would love to show you around.
