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).
Upmarket BKK 1:
Boeung Keng Kang (BKK) 1 bordered by Sihanouk, Norodom, Mao Tse Tung and Monivong Boulevards 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 are the embassies of Switzerland, Bulgaria, Brunei and Sweden and various NGOs and international companies. BKK also has many schools offering world class education.
It may be pricey, but this area is attractive for all sorts of businesses on streets 278, 282, 63 and 51. Apartments and hotels are in the mid to upper range due to location and quality.
The local market is located 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. BKK has pretty much everything.
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.
