We continue our inspection of various areas of Phnom Penh with a look at Russey Keo district, which is a part of the Cambodian capital you might well consider when looking to purchase a property.
Where is Khan Russey Keo?
Khan Russey Keo is one of the inner districts of Phnom Penh located to the north of the Chroy Changva Bridge and Tuol Kork. Sandwiched between Khan Sok Sen and the Tonle Sap river it stretches towards Prek Pnov Bridge along National Route 5. It is an area popular with Chinese, Japanese and Korean expats.

Facilities and Leisure in Khan Russey Keo Phnom Penh
Khan Russey Keo is a good area for golfers as you can choose from City Golf Club and the Jack Nicklaus’ designed Grand Phnom Penh Golf Club in neighbouring Khan Sen Sok. The American University of Phnom Penh (AUPP) is also located here.
Comparisons with Khan Kambol
Located close to both downtown Phnom Penh and Khan Sen Sok, Khan Russey Keo is one of the better locations for people to live in the capital. However, this also means that prices tend to be more inflated than in emerging areas such as Khan Kambol, which is only slightly further from both downtown Phnom Penh and Khan Sen Sok. Khan Kambol still has homes you can buy from plan in borey such as Borey Williams, and has more potential for investment growth.
