The best rooftop lounges and sky bars on riverside
The capital city of Phnom Penh is now home a many Sky bars or Rooftop Lounges. One of the main reason these bars are very popular among locals and expats alike, resides in the fact that street-level bars are usually restless and noisy. There are no pedestrian-only quarters in the city, hence you are most likely to be enjoying your drink in a heavy traffic street. Whereas on the rooftop, you will enjoy a more relaxing environment and also better fresh air. This is the reason why riverside sky bars are also preferred to their city counter-part. The 2 rivers (Mekong and Tonle Sap) and the fact that nothing blocks the airflow, makes the riverside rooftop more refreshing.
There are now quite a few options. Le Moon was the very first rooftop in the city. Probably the most spacious rooftop in the list. Also the one with the best view span, as it goes from the Wat Ounalom Pagoda all the way to the Japanese Bridge.
