The Essential Guide to Phnom Penh for Business Travelers

09 July 2021

As a business traveller, it’s helpful to know a little about the area and what you can expect from a new city. In Phnom Penh, there is no shortage of things to see and do, even if you came for work purposes. With a range of comfortable accommodation options and convenient travel methods, it’s easy to understand why business travellers who come to Cambodia enjoy their stay and are keen to visit again.

Travel Links 

Phnom Penh is well-connected and travelling around the city is convenient thanks to the prevalence of ride-share apps. Apps like Grab and Passapp with their fleet of brightly-coloured miniature motorcycle rickshaws are common modes of transportation, although taxis can also be hailed through the app.

The public transportation system in Phnom Penh consists of a small fleet of buses, with stops scattered around the city.

For your convenience, Bellevue Serviced Apartments provides a shuttle service from the apartment building to the city as well.

Things to Do

Phnom Penh has a lot to offer business travellers and so your visit certainly won’t be a dull one. The Royal Palace, Wat Phnom, Central Market, the Russian Market and Silk Island are all popular sightseeing areas. The many shopping malls and colourful nightlife (although COVID-19 restrictions may have shut down the latter) can also be a way for you to explore the city and make the most of any free time you have.

Places to Eat

From five-star restaurants to fast-food chains and everything in between, Phnom Penh is a fantastic city for eating out. You can ask our local staff for recommendations or order in through food apps such as Foodpanda and Nham24. Additionally, with fully-equipped kitchens in our serviced accommodation and grocery stores within walking distance, cooking for yourself and eating in is just as convenient.

Accommodation Options

Although there are many accommodation options in Phnom Penh, serviced apartments tend to be the go-to choice for business travellers, offering a home away from home.
