Secret Phnom Penh

A new book by Steven Boswell called King Norodom’s Head: Phnom Penh Sights Beyond the Guidebooks, is published this month by NIAS, with 200 photos/maps and 320 pages. It isn't your usual guidebook - instead focusing on off-beat stories about the capital. The reader will learn among other things like the whereabouts of the gold of King Ang Duong and of Madame Chum’s infamous opium den, the story behind the mysterious Frenchman buried on Wat Phnom’s hill, and the secret reason behind Jackie Kennedy’s 1967 trip to Cambodia.
