Cambodia - French Indo-China period (included Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam 1889-1945) - all issues - outstanding site at Asia Stamps (now hosting Ben Sheng's data)
- See 'Reference'; Indochina.
Indochina (Indo-chine) was under French control from 1889-1945, area consisting of Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. All the postage stamps used in Indochina were issues of French stamps with "INDO-CHINE" imprint. There was only one souvenir sheet issued in Indochina, Colonial Arts Exhibition Issue on April 15, 1937.
"Indochina stamps are relatively cheaper than other Asian countries' stamps. I believe Indochina will be a hot collecting area with in two years."
