Chamkarmon Location Profile
Chamkarmon is a large district (Khan) located to the south of central Phnom Penh. It is very diverse with an eclectic range of amenities and a healthy food and bar scene, places to stay (residential and hotels) and districts to explore.
In particular, Tonle Bassac and Toul Tum Poung (known more commonly as Russian Market) are very popular with expats, whereas Boeung Trabek and Phsar Doeum Thkov are still more Cambodian-centric.
Chamkarmon is spoiled with a great selection and range of hotels, restaurants, cafes, bars, and markets. It is also home to new commercialised areas like Koh Pich, malls such as AEON and the NagaWorld casino and entertainment complexes.
Like all Khans in the city of Phnom Penh, new developments are springing up, and with the cross-section of areas within Chamkarmon, some sangkats have seen much more recent development than others. The residential and commercial land in the district is generally of high value with the latter seeing steady increases.
