Here in Phnom Penh one of the places to be is the riverfront. Officially known as Sisowath Quay, the riverfront is a great place to stroll, to join those ever popular mass tai chi and aerobics sessions, eat in the numerous cafes and restaurants lining the street, feed the pigeons in the park right in front of the Royal Palace, to shop for some souvenirs, and to simply sit and enjoy the river views.
As for us, we like driving around this place, getting ourselves a place to sit and people watch for an hour or two, just taking in the vibe of the place. It has been something like our favorite weekly ritual since we started living in Phnom Penh. I always have a camera with me and since I’m compulsive about taking photos, I didn’t realize I’ve collected a good number of photos of Phnom Penh riverside. Let me just share..
The Royal Palace… taken before 7 am, the best time to take photos here I think..
Rows of Flags.. Chinks likes these. She gets to name which country a flag belongs to..
The other side of the road.. lined with hotels, cafes, restos..
Lots of pigeons in front of the Royal Palace.
