Sisowath Quay, Phnom Penh

3.4
Take a stroll along Sisowath Quay, a historic riverside at the confluence of the Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers. The 3 km (1.9 mi) palm-lined riverfront has plenty of room for relaxing, while bars, restaurants, and shops cluster in the surrounding area. Bustling around the clock, the riverside promenade makes a popular hangout area, and you also can do some shopping for bags and souvenirs on the side. Several tourist attractions lie along the way, including a royal palace, a museum, a pagoda, and a foreign correspondents' club.
