About BKK 1:
Bordered by Sihanouk, Norodom, Mao Tse Tung and Monivong Boulevards it is a popular area. It is the centre of Phnom Penh for its banks, hotels, restaurants, shops and bars. It is the place for business deals and seen as the ‘foreign capital’ for its cosmopolitan nature.
Here you will find the embassies of Switzerland, Bulgaria, Brunei and Sweden and various NGOs and international companies as well as many schools offering world class education.
BKK 1 is pricey, but attractive for business on streets 278, 282, 63 and 51. Apartments and hotels are in the mid to upper range due to location and quality. In addition, the local market located near Mao Tse Tung Boulevard offers a range of goods including fresh food, clothes, jewelry, money exchanges and household goods.
Augmenting the market is a wide selection of international F + B options including coffee shops and bakeries.
After dark the streets are alive with bars, clubs, hotel rooftops and restaurants open for punters. Things are pricier but you won’t want for much more because this neighborhood has pretty much everything.
About BKK 2:
Located west of BKK 1 and south of Olympic Market defined by Sihanouk Boulevard (north) and Monivong Boulevard (west). Its convenient location is attractive to professionals and expats looking to live or invest in Phnom Penh’s real estate market.
Over the last few years, it has seen rapid development as locals and foreigners realised the potential of the area. It now caters to much of the expat population overflowing from BKK 1 as prices are cheaper.
The area continues to transform as new build developments take shape. Boeung Keng Kang 2 is seemingly quiet, yet easy to commute to surrounding areas like BKK 1, Riverside and Russian Market which have many shops, restaurants and cafes.
Boeung Keng Kang 2 itself has seen many marts, pharmacies, cafes and fashion shops opening up. Property owners in turn recognise these changes and it is now more ‘expat friendly’.
Names like Kiwi Mart, Fresh Mart, Sakura, D & K Men Fashion Outlet, Swag Collection, ONE shop, ZIP Outlet, Fragrance House and an array of coffee shops and banks are now in operation.
Bassac Lane, only a stone’s throw away:
Amid widespread devastation of the hospitality industry by COVID, one area in Phnom Penh seems to be defying the odds. It includes bustling St 308 and St 21 where you will find cozy, high end bars and restaurants surrounded by new condos and other night venues.
The neighborhood is made up of groovy little streets with cool bars and eateries almost hidden away. It is the fun area with a distinct western vibe with bars in a different theme or style to suit.
COVID-19 slowed business here but it bounced back and now the night air is filled with music as people return to their old habits. The neighborhood is now so full of bars and hole-in-the-wall venues, that new venues are spilling into Street 308 and Street 21.
Because land prices here are 10-20% less than BKK 1, prices are cheaper all round. Prices of food and beverages are comparatively cheap. You can find a bar selling cocktails at $3, draught beer at $1 and meals from $5.
Amidst the general activity, there is a sense of optimism despite the tight border controls keeping tourist numbers down. So instead of going to the usual haunts on Street 136 and Pub Street that have obviously been hard hit by the pandemic, check out the lane where the night lights are a little bit brighter.
