    This is one of the most beautiful river walks in phnom Penh because it is facing the Royal Palace. There are palm trees along the river walk and a yellow building as a restaurants serving Chinese fusion food. I thought the building was the Tourist Information Office, in fact it was not. The nice part is that you can use a clean toilet funded by the World Toilet Association, Republic of Korea. It even comes with a name "Mr. Toilet".

    After enjoying the river, walk around the square you will see two small local temples for the use of locals as daily worshiping. You can see devoted Cambodians spend their lunch time afternoon to do their regular rituals here. Tuck-tuck drivers are showing their tourist passengers the great view of the Royal Palace.

    If you go further north, you will see more shop-lots in French colonial architecture, mostly guesthouses, bookshops, cafes, restaurants, salons, and etc.

    If you turn left on street 184 or 178, you can visit the National Museum, another great place to visit.

    Don't miss this location....

    Not to miss!!

    This beautiful promenade located in front of the Tonle Sap river, is full of cambodian people taking a walk. It´s full of bars and restaurants, we had a great time hanging out in this street. There are three rivers that meet here the Tonle Sap, the mytical Mekong and the Bassac river. A pleasant place in Phnom Penh.
