The Riverfront Park is one of those places you would not want to miss out when in the city. From dawn to dusk, the riverfront can keep you very well entertained. At dawn, mingle with locals to catch the day breaking; watch the spectacular sunrise over the river and enjoy the flurry of early-morning activity as you leisurely stroll by the riverside freshened by the cool river breeze. Here at the confluence of the Tonle Sap, Mekong and Bassac Rivers, you can also expect series of interesting river activities.

Check out the many café, restaurants, galleries and shops in the area. The Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and the National Museum are also in the vicinity of the riverfront; all within walking distance from one another.

The 15th Century Wat Ounalom is also here; only a short distance from the Royal Palace. Built in 1422 by King Ponyea Yat, the last king of the Khmer empire, this is today, the head quarter of the Cambodian Buddhist patriarchate; the residence of the Chief Monk. Besides the temple itself, there are schools, libraries, living quarters and the stupa that gives the temple its name; the stupa holds an Ounalum, a hair from the eyebrow of the Buddha.

In the evening, check out the dozens of pubs that sit along one side of the Sisowath Quay overlooking the river. The side streets are also crowded with eateries, restaurants and bars.
