The riverfront from Street 104 to the Royal Palace is popular with locals and tourists alike. Sisowath Quay, the riverfront road, is lined with dozens of restaurants and bars and a range of hotels, some affording spectacular riverside views. Interspersed amongst the restaurants are silk and souvenir shops, spas, travel agents and a few ATMs.
The riverfront is particularly popular in the early evening but itís a great place to stroll any time of day. Have a snack or a meal, relax at a streetside cafe and watch the passing riverfront scene, explore the side streets. The best shopping streets adjoining the riverfront are Street 178 and Street 240 on either side of the Royal Palace and National Museum. A couple of the cityís best bar streets also stretch off the riverfront. Both Street 104 and Street 110 at the northern end of the riverfront area and Street 136 in the middle are packed with bars, restaurants and guesthouses.
