Bokor Palace Hotel on the windswept summit of Bokor mountain in southern Cambodia, these photos give you a feel for the location - on the edge of the mountain overlooking the Gulf of Thailand in the distance - but also the bleak and grim interior and exterior of the Bokor Palace. The hotel is not a thing of beauty that's for sure. But it has its own character and place in Cambodian history, so it will be a shame to lose it if the proposed development deems it surplus to requirements. The hotel has been used in a couple of movies in recent years including Matt Dillon's dark and brooding City of Ghosts, which fits the hotel like a glove.
