Old-style homes still impresses youth

“Nowdays, with little income for the young generation young people may not be able to buy this kind of house. I love the house but the forest and land are very expansive and while we are talking about high salaries that could buy a house like this I am speechless because people are about to die because of poverty.” This is a comment of a Face-book user who expresses his idea on the photo posting in Khmer author Chanbo Keo’s page.

The picture of a house in traditional classic Khmer architecture has been posted since September 26, but it is still drawing interest among Face-book user because of the house’s beautiful elegance and the environment around it. About 100 FB users shared and around 650 users liked the photo.

Some comments reveal interest and love for the traditional Khmer house. And some want to know its location. A comment said: “I always download and save those photos like this because I am missing the good old times.”

We observed that although there are many modern types of architecture even today young people still love, respect and are drawn to traditional architecture.
