Bokor HIll Station was established by the French in the 1920s on top of Phnom Bokor near Kampot, Cambodia to escape the stifling heat of Phnom Penh. They built a grand hotel and casino from which to enjoy the costal views below, which were grand indeed but for the heavy fog swirling the mountain top. It was abandoned several times over the years and eventually became a battleground between the Khmer Rouge and the Vietnamese in 1979. The Khmer Rouge holed up in the French Catholic Church while the Vietnamese took up positions in the former Casino less than a kilometer away. The Casino is now being renovated while the old church is in a ruined state as it was after the battles. There is a royal residence, in ruins, nearby. The fog still swirls; eerie sounds emanate from the place. I'm sure it is haunted.
Filmed in August 2012 with a Canon 5DMk3. Edited in Final Cut Pro X.
