This charming 1st floor 2-bedroom apartment is now available for rent to lucky tenants wanting 2 balconies in a great location near the Royal Palace.

From the moment you walk in, you will feel comfortable and ‘at home’, like a little bit of Province in Phnom Penh.

Light filters on from both ends of the dwelling (both private balconies with leafy outlooks) and a central lightwell, so the interior remains bright and cool even in the middle of the day.

The furniture, furnishings and appliances are all you will ever need for a pleasant sojourn in Cambodia.

The master bedroom is enormous and has its own balcony. The second bedroom is comfortable and has sufficient clothes storage. There is also a separate laundry/storage room.

All in all, this apartment is a lovely balance of comfort, security, price and location. It is a 5 minute walk to the riverfront and a 10 minute walk to BKK 1.

This would be a perfect home for a professional couple or small family.

Riverside: the real downtown

Riverside, the real downtown is the old city – Wat Phnom, Old Market, Kandal Market and Chaktomuk.

Many generations’ footprints are here – Angkor kings, French colonists and UN troops. It is where the Mekong, Tonle Sap and Bassac rivers meet and where the Water Festival takes place each year.

Riverside is always stunning especially at sunrise and sunset. Day and night it is busy and a popular tourist spot.

Sisowath Quay (in honor of King Sisowath) is the riverfront road. It starts at the Buddhist Institute and continues north to Japanese Bridge. There it becomes Road 6 and out of the city.

Riverside has a wide choice of restaurants, wellbeing services, hotels, shops and bars. Among the restaurants, you will find Italian, French, Japanese, Vietnamese, Indonesian and Malaysian.


A personal reflection on Daun Penh and Riverside – from art gallery to market stall, $5 massages and 5-star hotels

Street 172 is punctuated with $3 massage joints and bars occupied by grey faces framed with light grey hair.

Yet, just around the corner, Street 178 is now arguably the rising art gallery district of Phnom Penh with the University of Fine Arts a stone’s throw away.

Friends Café made a bold statement and the Mansion House seems to be waiting for reincarnation. Now the Hyatt has opened its doors to the Jet set, it may well be a different designer-schmick precinct to what is currently now.

In fact, when you look up along 172, the standard of shophouses is somewhat ‘better’ than in other parts of the city: it could be the rising star of Daun Penh and Riverside.

In the streets around Riverside, there is a sense that there are too many hostess bars, each vying for a shifting slice of the tourist and expat pie.

Rents will rise with the inevitable escalation of land values and the ROI of each vendor’s patch will become more and more critical as the clock ticks.

Looking at Phsar Kandal and the open block where Prey Sar prison once sat is now a large retail centre.

Given its proximity to Riverside and the 172 and 178 ‘sweet spot’, maybe there is something special waiting in the sidelines, something for the inspired new generation of architects and artists.

About Wat Phnom

Wat Phnom is a Buddhist temple built 1372, about 27m high, making it the tallest religious structure in the city.

According to legend, the original pagoda housed four Buddha statues deposited by the Mekong River.

They were later discovered by a woman named Penh and the city’s origin, therefore, is attributed to her.

Wat Phnom is part of Riverside, a busy district and probably the real downtown of Phnom Penh.

Riverside incorporates areas like Phsar Chas, Phsar Kandal, Chey Chumneas and Chaktomuk: the oldest parts of the city.
