On our recent visit to northern Cambodia I was interested to see these kilometer markers torn up and dumped by the side of the road, presumably for a road-widening exercise that will commence soon (although we could see no other evidence of that).
There was something slightly eerie about them; they looked like tombstones, just dumped in the middle of nowhere so I had to take a couple of photos before carrying on our way.
Had they not weighed a ton, I would have thrown a few in the back of my pickup and taken them home, where they would have made great conversation pieces.
