The Best Areas to Stay are...
- Phnom Penh: Downtown area is basically referred to the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda by the riverbank, look for hotels near Street 180 to Street 240.
- Siem Reap: This town depends on tourism and widely known for budget-friendly hostels and small local-run hotels near the Pub Street.
- If you are not a big fan of nightlife in Siem Reap, small-scale boutique hotels around Sok San Road could fill the bill better.
- In Battambang, one doesn’t have much choice for luxury. Mid-range hotels and some nice boutique hotels can be found around the Central Market.
