This is the few "public writers" left in the world! This gentleman has worked for decades to help people who are illiterate solve writing problems. He works at this post office almost every day. You can ask him to write to his friends or family members in Cambodian. The others are very friendly and always have a smile on their faces. Apart from this gentleman, there is nothing interesting about this post office!
After dinner I walked to the street and found this building, obviously it is a French style one. I feel the history of this city.
have passed by the post office numerous times during the time I lived in Phnom Penh, but it was really a unique experience when I joined an ' architecture' tour which started at that very building. It is a great sturdy but elegant old building, and I need to say that the workers there still process mail as it used to be done many decades ago.. by hand, registering everything in huge books. if you go for a visit on a weekend and feel hungry, try the brunch at Kaiser La Poste - an incredible experience that will cost you very little..
Interesting building. Always fairly smooth service for post office services. This is where you catch the Cambodia Post VIP Van in Phnom Penh
