Borey in Khan Chbar Ampov vs Khan Kambol

We continue our journey through the various districts of the Cambodian capital with a visit to Khan Chbar Ampov, which in recent years has been a very popular area for borey development sites in Phnom Penh.

Where is Khan Chbar Ampov Phnom Penh?

Khan Chbar Ampov is located just across Chbar Ampov Bridge (Monivong Bridge) to the south of the capital. Despite being quite far removed from the downtown area, Chbar Ampov district has good connections to central Monivong and Norodom Boulevards. The area is dominated by a major Koh Norea reclamation project funded by the Overseas Cambodian Investment Corporation (OCIC). The intention of this is to create a satellite city. There are plans to build a bridge from Khan Chbar Ampov to Koh Pich (Diamond Island).

Amenities in Khan Chbar Ampov

Perhaps one of the most remarkable aspects of Khan Chbar Ampov is the Peng Huoth Euro Park, a European and leisure park spread over four hectares of land in Grand Star Platinum. There are also plenty of educational options with Southbridge International School (SISC) and Beltei School having opened here, as well as the Chbar Ampov Polyclinic providing quality health facilities.

Comparisons with Khan Kambol

Really Khan Chbar Ampov is a satellite city development rather that part of Phnom Penh, as such it offers very different attractions to Khan Kambol. However both areas benefit from having competitively-priced land available. Khan Kambol is well-located close to the popular Khan Sen Sok area of town. It is also closer to international hospitals and golf courses.
