Cambodia Itinerary

Orientation

Phnom Penh is a fairly easy city in which to navigate as it is laid out in a numbered gnd, a little like New York City. The major boulevards of Phnom Penh run north-south, parallel to the banks of the Tonle Sap and Tonle Bassac Rivers. Monivong Blvd cuts north-south through the centre of town, passing just west of Psar Thmei. Its northern sector is a busy shopping strip and home to some of the oldest hotels and travel agents in town. Norodom Blvd runs north-south from Wat Phnom, and is largely lined with administrative buildings; the northern end contains banks, while further south are government ministries and embassies. Samdech Sothearos Blvd runs north-south near the riverfront, past the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda. Sisowath Quay hugs the river and is where many of the city’s most popular restaurants and bars are located. The major east-west boulevards are Russian Blvd in the north of town, Sihanouk Blvd, which passes the Independence Monument and ends near the Hotel Cambodiana, and Mao Tse Toung Blvd, a ring road of sorts that also runs north- south in the west of the city.
 
Intersecting the main boulevards is a network of hundreds of numbered smaller streets. As a rule of thumb, streets running east-west have even numbers that increase as you head south from the Chruoy Changvar Bridge, while streets that run north-south have odd numbers that increase as you head west away from the river.
 
Most buildings around town have signs with both their building number and street ( phlauv, abbreviated to Ph) number. Finding a building purely by its address, however, is not always easy, as numbers are rarely sequential. See the boxed text, p76, and pity the postman.
 
Most buses, taxis and pick-ups arrive in the centre of town around Psar Thmei and it is just a short moto (small motorcycle with driver), remorque-moto (trailer pulled by motorbike) or taxi ride to most guesthouses and hotels. Some buses arrive at the north end of the riverfront near St 104 and there are persistent rumours the government will eventually develop out- of-town bus stations to ease traffic congestion. The train station is a couple of blocks northwest of Psar Thmei, but there are currently no passenger services. Boats from Siem Reap and Chau Doc (Vietnam) arrive at the tourist boat dock on the Tonlé Sap River at the eastern end of St 108. Hundreds of motos await in ambush. Phnom Penh International Airport is 7km west of central Phnom Penh.
 
Maps
 
For a handy pocket-size map, look out for a free copy of the Phnom Penh 3-D Map, which is distributed at the airport and selected bars and restaurants around the city. Both the Phnom Penh Visitors Guide and the Phnom Penh Pocket Guides, freely available in the capital, have up-to-date maps.
