These riverfront French-colonial shophouses in Battambang, Cambodia are characterised by the arcade (five-foot-way), louvered shuttered windows, folding wooden shop doors, a pitched roof, columns and pilaster, and arched windows with shutters. The balcony has elaborate cast-iron works, showing French influences.
