About Tonle Bassac:
Tonle Bassac, a Sangkat in Khan Chamkarmon, is located on the west side of the Tonle Bassac River.
It covers around 3 square kilometres flanked by Sihanouk Blvd, Norodom Blvd and National Road 1. The area is known for having a myriad of small alleys that branch off into larger streets.
These alleys are full of bars and restaurants, hotels and residences secluded from the busy city centre.
The reclaimed land (known as Koh Pich) has undergone significant development with numerous condos, exhibition halls, hotels and other iconic developments, such as The Bridge, The Peak and DI Riviera.
A number of embassies are also located in Tonle Bassac, such as – Thai, Australian, Japanese, Indonesian, Russian, Malaysian, South Korea and Philippines.
The area is also home to many government buildings and gated communities.
Consequently, you will notice increased security presence (private, police and national security).
Despite the widespread devastation of the hospitality industry by COVID-19, one precinct in Phnom Penh seems to be defying the odds and operating almost Business as Usual, bustling Bassac Lane, St 308 and St 21.
There you will find small, high-end bars and restaurants that will soon be surrounded by new condos and more night venues.
The neighbourhood is made up of groovy little streets with great bars and eateries tucked away that cater to locals and tourists.
It is literally the fun area with a Western vibe. Each bar has a different theme or style to suit all tastes!
COVID-19 slowed business in the area, but it bounced back and now on weekends, the night air is filled with music and laughter 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.
Daun Penh: the real downtown
Day and night Riverside, Daun Penh, is busy. It is probably the real downtown Phnom Penh where the oldest parts of the city are located.
I am referring to Wat Phnom, Phsar Chas, Phsar Kandal, Chey Chumneas and Chaktomuk and the Royal Palace and National Museum of course!
Preah Sisowath (honoring King Sisowath 1904 to 1927 reign) is the avenue / boulevard running along the riverfront.
It starts at the Buddhist Institute near Sothearos Boulevard. Then continues north to the Japanese Bridge where it becomes National Road 6 leading north to Battambang.
Generations of days gone by have left their footprints from Angkor kings to French colonists to UN troops.
Riverside witnesses the confluence of the Mekong, Tonle Sap and Bassac rivers and where the Water Festival is best viewed each November.
It is always stunning, especially at sunup and sundown.
In Riverside, there is a wide selection of restaurants, wellbeing services, hotels, shops and bars aimed at tourists.
Among the restaurants, you will find good selections – German, Italian, French, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Indonesian and Malaysian.
