We have apartments, condos, office spaces for rent and sale in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Kampot and Sihanoukville.
Tonle Bassac is located on the west side of the Tonle Bassac River. It covers around 3sqm defined by Sihanouk Blvd, Norodom Blvd and National Road 1.
The area is known for its many alleys branching off the larger streets full of bars and restaurants away from the busy city centre.
A number of embassies are also located nearby, such as – Thai, Australian, Japanese, Indonesian, Russian, Malaysian, South Korea and Philippines.
The area is also home to many government buildings and gated communities so you will notice an increased security presence (private, police and national security).
Reclaimed land known as Koh Pich has many condos, exhibition halls, hotels and other iconic buildings such as The Bridge and The Peak.
Amid widespread devastation of the hospitality industry by COVID, one area in Phnom Penh seems to be defying the odds. It includes bustling Bassac Lane, 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.
Bassac Lane 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 Bassac Lane where the night lights are a little bit brighter.
Phnom Penh Villas – a short history
Phnom Penh was an important hub for French colonialists with its wide roads, beautiful gardens, grand villas and colonial mansions earned it the undisputed title ‘Pearl of Asia’ in the 1920s.
From this time, the city expanded rapidly. Chaktomuk is located in Daun Penh; an area under transformation with countless new developments and infrastructure upgrades.
It is a culturally significant area with its landmarks like Wat Botum Park, Botumvatey Pagoda and Independence Monument.
It is also very popular for its many restaurants, cafes, embassies, NGO offices, and boutique hotels.
Best you use a checklist as it can be a daunting task. Not only is it an emotional journey, but you’ll have reams of admin.
Here’s a checklist to help you tick off (and fill) your boxes!
Even before moving house, change your address.
- Start doing this 30 days before the move. Sometimes a phone call will do, but often you may have to provide proof of the new address to certain institutions or go into the bank, your doctor, kid’s school or Sangkat to fill in forms, so giving yourself a head start will help to shorten your to-do list.
- In some cases you may be able to receive statements and accounts by email. This cuts down on paper wastage and ensures an easier address change process.
