GUÍA DEL CONSERJE
BIENVENIDO A Phnom Penh
It is with pleasure that we welcome you to InterContinental Phnom Penh. My concierge team and I are honoured to have you with us. We are here to ensure that all your needs are met and that you will return to InterContinental Phnom Penh your home in Cambodia.
Our hotel is located along Mao Tse Toung Boulevard, approximately 7 kms from the airport, 15-20 minutes by car.
Take a stroll along the promenade and watch the sun rise over the Royal Palace. The park-lined riverfront overlooks the Chaktomuk River which joins the Tonle Sap, Mekong and Bassac Rivers. Later in the day the promenade will be awash with people, but for now you can soak up the morning sun and absorb an altogether slower pace of life, as fishermen and ferries go quietly about their work. Find a riverside cafe; that suits your mood and enjoy a leisurely coffee and croissant. As the city gets into full flow, the promenade all but disappears under a sea of people and the air vibrates to the sound of cyclos, motos and the high-pitched cries of vendors selling their wares. A people-watchers' paradise.
The aptly named restaurant Friends for Lunch is a thriving tapas bar. Not only is the food delicious the restaurant is part of a non-profit organisation that helps kids get off the street. The staff are attentive, the atmosphere friendly and the daiquiris the best in town. From here you can visit the National Museum home to the largest collection of Khmer art in the world. The courtyard is worth a visit with its classic Khmer architecture and shaded gardens. An ideal place to sit, relax and take in the atmosphere.
Hire a river boat for a sunset cruise along the Tonle Sap and Mekong Rivers. No need to book, just turn up, find a boat, negotiate your price and off you go. Ask the boatman to drop you at the Foreign Correspondents Club (FCC). Set in a renovated colonial building overlooking the river, the FCC has lost none of its old-world charm. The second-floor terrace with its sweeping views over the promenade and river is the perfect place for a pre-dinner aperitif. In keeping with the journalistic theme you might want to visit Talking to a Stranger. This vibrant little bar in a leafy garden setting is popular with local journalists. The upstairs terrace serves tasty food.
