  • Enjoyed our time on Sisowath Quay. Nice walk along waterfront. Ate dinner a couple times along the quay (Indian food). Lots of places with 75 cents draft beer (basically from noon to 10 pm). Some plac...  more »
  • It is the way of representation of Phnom Penh, a long promenade that runs along the Tonle Sap lake where it meets the Mekong and see below the waist that flows the river between cruises to see the sunset and fishermen cast their nets. In this area you will find kids playing, families improvising picnics and people walking in tranquillity. On the other side of the road there are numerous restaurants, quite expensive for the average Cambodian.

  • Beautiful walk along the River at night from 5 pm. We meet tourists and especially local which are often family. Atmosphere good child, the river brings a bit of freshness, to also do the morning very early, at the Sunrise, for sports, jogging or walking. I recommend in this case to all of the dock to the island with diamonds and even for the brave to do around this island using one of the 3 bridges. In the morning, it's somewhere quiet and clean (rare in Phnom Penh) conducive to the market. Small flat on the busiest part of the Sisowath Quay: the often lingering smell of urine... Cambodians tend pee everywhere... At the moment it is not forbidden by the municipality.
