One-day trip in Phnom Penh

 

Particularly in and around the city center of Phnom Penh, you can see breathtaking architecture and cityscape. Phnom Penh is also very walkable as being hugged by the banks of the Ton Le Sap River. To immerse yourself in the hustle of peaceful daily life as well as enjoy the most intriguing and spectacular buildings from the best vantage point possible — the street, a stroll is an ideal choice.

On a few-hour excellent cyclo tour, Phnom Penh’s gritty streets are best appreciated as they are graced with stunning buildings from the French colonial era, mysterious Chinese temples, beautiful shop-houses, and awesome modernist structures. Located at No32, Street 130, the Noodle House, where you can order handmade dumplings and pulled noodles, is the ending point of your cyclo tour. Although you will have to wait long, it is worth the wait. The nice art deco Central Market or Phsar Thmey where stir-fried noodles and home-cooked curries can be ordered at one of the many stalls, is more suitable for the more culinary adventurous.

The Deco (Corner Streets 57 & 352) in an art deco villa and the buzzy Fox Wine Bistro (at No 104 Sothearos Boulevard), which are two of some new restaurants helping Phnom Penh earn its fame as a cosmopolitan hot spot, are the most perfect dining option of contemporary east-meets-west cuisine.
