A pleasant stroll via a 150m-long railings-free bridge north of the centre takes you to the house of Takeo Province’s most notorious native son, Ta Mok – aka ‘The Butcher’ – the Khmer Rouge commander of the Southwestern Zone, where he presided over horrific atrocities. Ta Mok’s House is now occupied by a police training facility, but you can wander around the grounds. Ta Mok also had a residence near Anlong Veng.
