Today we share a ‘now and then’ shot from a well known area in Siem Reap: Sivutha Boulevard, viewed from Phsar Kandal. The picture on the left is taken in 1998 and shows The Sky Club (Vimean Akas), which was located at the corner of Sivutha boulevard and 2 Thnou Street (or Hospital Street). On the right, you see Canadia Bank at the same location in a photo taken this morning almost 15 years later.

The Sky was a night club where some of the expats were going to learn and practice Khmer dances until it closed its doors in early 2000. It remained abandoned for 4 or 5 years, before they started building the Canadia Bank offices.
