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.

Only 11 kilometres to the Phnom Penh International Airport over Russian Federation Boulevard and the 7 Makara Sky Bridge, the BK Apartment, by the SATAO Development Company, is situated in the heart of Phnom Penh’s bustling centre.

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.

The Royal Palace in Phnom Penh is recognised as one of the top destination choices in Cambodia by TripAdvisor.
