Sen Sok Location Profile
Sen Sok district was established in 2009 in the capital of Phnom Penh. The incorporated land was formerly a part of Kandal province but was absorbed into the capital’s expansion. Sen Sok was also created through the merger of three Sangkats; Khmuonh, Phnom Penh Thmei and Tuek Thla which used to be part of Khan Russey Keo.
The area is home to roughly 10% of Phnom Penh’s residents. Sen Sok is a district in the northwest of Phnom Penh’s city centre that is growing and modernising quickly and is a hotbed for development.
Just like neighbouring district Toul Kork, many residents are relocating to Sen Sok to find more affordable land and property. Until recently, the area was mostly residential and industrial. In recent years, however, there have been some high profile commercial projects that seem to be kicking activity into high gear. These include the addition of the AEON Mall Sen Sok, as well as warehouse-size outlets like Global House and Makro Cambodia and huge mixed development projects and boreys.
