Just a short walk from the independence monument and the statue of King Norodom it makes sense to take a look at all three in one short trip before moving on...

I am sure you've seen them all over the World, these 'pretend' friendship monuments, especially in the old eastern Bloc, where you see the Soviet 'liberators', but here is actually a genuine one! Wonderful monument and so heart warming when you realize the symbolism of a nation generally escaping barbarity. A must see as you just feel happy and relieved... More

The monument to Cambodian-Vietnamese friendship is not unattractive, but nothing to go out of the way for. But part of the long and pleasant park extending to the Independence Monument. Close ties between Vietnam and Cambodia, especially the role of the Vietnamese in helping oust the Khmer Rouge, are the feature. Close ties between the countries remain, but at what... More

I wouldn't say that its necessary to make it a point to stop here, but driving past, or stopping for a quick photo while hearing the historical/cultural importance of this monument is sufficient.

This monument is built to celebrate friendship between Cambodia and Vietnam. A good place for an evening walk. You can find many locals here in the evening. There are many restaurants in the neearby area so this place is recommended for everyone who wants to have a good time.

Here's a monument celebrating piece between Cambodia and Vietname after the war involving the Khmer Rouge regime. All of the surroundings are gorgeous, and the skylight is wonderful, really good to take pictures and enjoy the view and all of the life around it with kids playing, teenagers dating and gossiping and adults jogging and playing ball!

An easy monument to find and walk round. We were able to walk from our hotel and see this along with Independence Monument and the statue of the kings father.

People fighting each others, killing or massacred of thousands, millions for a better life?! I don't think so, but they just do it and so they did! I don't like both sides, but I just chose a side which people get murdered less!
