Phnom Penh stretches N to S on W side of the confluence of the Tonle Sap & Mekong rivers.
The city offers a fascinating cocktail of flavors. The crumbling, colonial architecture & wide boulevard-style roads, give the city a relaxed French feel. This provides a contrasting background to the vibrant Cambodian markets & typically chaotic SE Asian traffic, the roads choked with motos, cyclos and cars.

Phnom Penh is the only major city on the banks of the Mekong. Sunset is a good time to visit the riverside area. A multitude of restaurants offer cuisine from all over Asia & Europe.

In spite of it's dangerous reputation, Phnom Penh also has an excellent variety of nightlife, from small bistro-style bars to huge glitzy nightclubs & for a few more months, a casino ship.

Streets are numbered, Odd numbered streets run E toW, starting from the river, Even numbered streets run N to S.
