Bustling Bassac Lane
Despite the widespread devastation of the hospitality industry by COVID-19, one precinct in Phnom Penh seems to be defying all odds and operating almost Business as Usual. In the leafy backstreets of Tonle Bassac are 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 neighborhood 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 did slow business in the area for a while, 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. Instead of going to the usual haunts on Street 136 and Pub Street hard hit by the pandemic, check out Bassac Lane where the night are a little bit brighter.
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.
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.
