The Governor's House is one of the

  • Battambang tourist attractions which stands out as one of the most interesting pieces of architecture which was left behind after the French legacy - a pleasing aesthetic but solid reminder of the French presence in Cambodia before their departure on 9th November 1953. The building is the largest French colonial building in Battambang, and for anybody interested in 20th century architecture this should be included in any Battambang visit. What's more it has a privileged riverside location and is in an area where many more colonial buildings and the old french bridge are located.
