In the 1920s, the French built a hill station at Bokor, where they could retreat from the constant heat of Cambodia to the cooler climate at the higher elevation. In Bokor's heyday, the two casino-hotels and the church welcomed the elite of French-Cambodian society. Now the buildings are empty shells, daubed with orange moss and still bearing the scars of fierce fighting between Vietnamese forces and Khmer Rouge holdouts in 1979.
