A slice of metropolitan living in historical Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital city

To many travellers familiar with the Southeast Asian region, Cambodia is a destination favoured over the usual spots one imagines when planning a tropical holiday

With a relatively young and rapidly growing population, a stable constitutional monarchy and a vital role in the Central Corridor of China’s One Belt One Road infrastructure initiative, Cambodia has already garnered the attentions of well-informed travellers in the region.

Cambodia is uniquely situated on the global stage: with long-standing diplomatic relations nurtured with China, and as the world’s third-largest reserve of US Dollars outside of the continental United States, multinational corporations and professional expatriates find operating in Cambodia to be conducive to their businesses – so much so that foreigners amount to 10 percent of the population residing in Cambodia.

Being significantly less commercialised than neighbouring holiday destinations, Phnom Penh offers a rare tropical vacation experience in a bustling urban setting — where one can enjoy a holiday without having to jostle with the crowds of tourists that typically form in some of the more well-known parts of the region.

Just two and a half kilometres to Phnom Penh’s famed Riverside Park, where the Tonle Sap River merges with the Mekong before meandering into Vietnam — and the monarchy’s seat of power at the Royal Palace — this property carries equal potential as a hostel for university students, as a short-term vacation stay for holidaymakers seeking a balance between the exotic and the wonders of civilisation, or for expatriate professionals working in the centre of the city.
