Location Information

91, Street 108, Phnom Penh.

Encounters is in the centre of the diamond formed by Wat Phnom pagoda, the Central Market, the railway station and the Night Market, each five to seven minutes walk.

The royal palace and silver pagoda are within walking distance. Colourful local restaurants and international bars are seconds away. The riverside strip of bars and restaurants is close by, but far enough away to escape the hassle and scams.
