The Railway Hotel was buit and run by the state railway in the colonial era (now leased to the Centara Group). As the train line connecting Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore was completed, the seaside holiday town attracting elite tourists was formed starting with the beachfront hotel designed by an Italian architect and a road straight to the station. Quite a few bygone memorabilia are now displayed at the Museum Tea room, which is the site of the original hotel lobby also acted as Hotel le Phnom in the Killing Fields (1984).
