A tour around the new BKK1 with SEAPS



Boeung Keng Kang 1, or BKK1, is the most international and forward-thinking district of Phnom Penh. No matter what you’re looking for, BKK1 will have something for you. Indeed, if you consider yourself a global individual, this is where you should live. It’s difficult to find the perfect space without the help of a professional, however.

Luckily, Southeast Asia Property Services (SEAPS) has all the knowledge to show you around. In fact, SEAPS specialises in educating customers and securing strong property portfolios.

With an expert knowledge of Cambodia real estate, SEAPS can help you find the space that will make your dreams come true. 

BKK1 is international

Cambodia is more connected to the world than ever before. Investments are flowing in from abroad. Foreigners are setting up local companies, and local companies are doing more business around the world. Phnom Penh sits at the centre of this breakneck growth. What’s more, BKK1 is the gloablised centre of Phnom Penh.

What's life like in BKK1?

The amenities in this district are second to none. Dining options are unlimited with international chains and locals stalls dotting every corner. Every cuisine from Japanese and Korean to Thai and American are represented. Coffee shops such as Starbucks, Brown and Amazon all have multiple locations here. The massive Aeon Mall is just around the corner, too.

There is no place more convenient to live than in BKK1. Local markets, grocery stores and 24-hour convenience marts offer up anything you need day to day. All the major banks have branches or ATMs nearby and there are hotels galore. Tons of international schools operate here, so your family is provided for. Additionally, four of the capital’s biggest roads, Norodom, Mao Tse Tung, Sihanouk and Monivong boulevards, border BKK1.

If you work for an international company you will definitely be going to and from BKK1. It’s just minutes south of the central business district. Companies who don’t have their headquarters in BKK1 will usually have meetings or lunches in the neighbourhood.
