Phnom Penh is a relatively small area that is marked with varying subcultures. This is one of the things that gives the capital city its unique spirit and dynamic lifestyle.
And according to Chairman of Cambodian Investment Management, Anthony Galliano, the merging of ideologies, structures, and tradition is best observed through the properties along the Phnom Penh Riverside.
There are a number of things you can see and do in this area, and Galliano lists a few of them during his recent interview on Realestate.com.khTV.
Imagine the reflection of the sun in the river as it sets, all the little boats just passing by your view from the window. That is exactly the picture Galliano paints for the Riverside area.
Living here means that you will be able to bask in the rays of the golden sun and just absorb all the beautiful sights around you - which includes the rivers of Mekong, Tonle Sap, and Bassac rivers. You can also see diverse architecture and a landscape that had been influenced by different time periods.
But wherever in the Riverside area you go, you are guaranteed to see something eye-catching.
People say that you can tell a lot about a place and its people through the types of festivals they celebrate. And Phnom Penh’s Riverside surely does not have a shortage of festivities.
Galliano explains that you have a pretty good vantage point you can utilize if you live in the area because you’re right in the middle of all the celebrations. But probably one of the best festivals in Cambodia you will be able to attend is the Water and Moon Festival, otherwise known as Bonn Om Touk, which ushers in and welcomes the fishing season. During this time, you can also opt to watch the annual boat race which is the festival’s main attraction.
The Phnom Penh Riverside area is conveniently located near the central business district of the capital city. This makes it relatively easy for workers and even families to move around Phnom Penh without having to worry about the increasingly congested traffic situation there. It is also close to facilities such as hospitals, schools, and grocery stores. Residents can testify that once you move into this part of Cambodia, there is little that you need to ask for. Everything you might need is there.
Because this area is also home to a growing number of expatriates, there are also plenty of restaurants to serve dishes which originated or are derived from Germany, Italy, France, Canada, America, Korea, China, Japan, and even Australia. So, choosing food will no longer be a problem as there is a wide range available.
The Phnom Penh Riverside area is definitely one of the best places to live in Phnom Penh. Having been well-developed throughout the years, you’re assured all you need to live comfortably here alone or with your family.
