Save to favouritesPrintMailFCC Phnom PenhAh, the history! It was right here, under the great black ceiling fans, overlooking the lazy flow of the river, that the legends of the lawless UNCTAD days got distorted beyond recognition in the retelling - from sozzled foreign correspondentís mouth to stoned travellerís ear - until people really thought you could hire an AK-47 and tell a local child to run. The foreign correspondents have fallen (not to AK-47s but to the economies of the newspaper industry), and the travellers with their beards and beads have decamped, but the Foreign Correspondents' Club still thrives. Now, though, it is under corporate ownership and its logo is on T-shirts, bags and what-all else. Perhaps itís for the best. The location remains the very centre of Phnom Penhís tourist ghetto, a stoneís throw from the National Museum, a lazy stroll to the Royal Palace. And nowadays you can even get service in 8 well-appointed [r:CA009:rooms]. The terrace and rooftop still have the best views in town; throw open your window, lie on the bed and know youíre in the throbbing heart of a strange city - a great feeling.
