Tonle Bassac neighborhood
Tonle Bassac is one of the last remaining neighborhoods in central Phnom Penh to retain a feel of the old city with its small, tree-lined alleys, and traditional wooden houses – though these are now flanked by restaurants, bars, villas and condominiums as well. From the airport, expect around a 40-minute drive to the hotel. There’s a lot going on nearby: in addition to small boutiques and cafés, AEON Mall 1 is just 5 minutes away on foot from the hotel, while the Royal Palace, Independence monument National Museum and Riverside are all 5-10 minutes away by tuk-tuk or 20 minutes on foot. See our Phnom Penh Guides for more things to do and see in the neighborhood.
