Phnom Penh Maps

The main body of Phnom Penh sits along the west side of the Tonle Sap and Bassac Rivers. The airport is at the western edge of town, about 9km (40-60 minutes) from town center. Most in-city points of interest lie within 10-20 minutes of each other. Hotels, restaurants and shops are spread across the city, though there is a greater concentration toward the center of the town, especially near and along the riverfront. Public transportation including tuk-tuks, taxis, mototaxis and cyclos are readily available citywide making it easy to catch transport from one site to the next.
