Why Blue Dragon is special ?
he Blue Dragon which opened four months ago must have one of the best locations in Phnom Penh. Situated on street 184 it commands an amazing view of the Royal Palace. It also has views of the river and is very close to the National Museum and Silver Pagoda.
As it is away from the main drag, with the endless traffic noise and activity it is also is a very peaceful place to sit and just relax. In the the park opposite pigeons and doves flock together and are fed by passers by. In many capitals they would probably be poisoned, even in Trafalgar square the pigeons are considered a menace. But here they are tolerated and just add to the scenery.
The Blue Dragon is not a restaurant and hardly even a cafe although it will provide a toasted cheese and ham sandwich with your choice of beverage. The establishment is actually more of a souvenir shop. It is like one of those trendy bookshops that also have a cafe area. The merchandise consists of artifacts and paintings and tourist knick knacks from all around South East Asia, not solely Cambodia. The wooden day beds and chairs are locally made beautiful and are very reasonably priced. Five percent of all the takings are donated to The Cambodian Acid Survivors charity.

This is a lovely, cosy little bar on a small side street off the riverside and right beside the Royal Palace and the Unesco building. A bit off the beaten track but worth seeking out. Perfect place to watch the locals relaxing in the evenings in the park. A few tables outside and more inside. My favourite bar in Phnom Penh with a great selection of drinks and the French guys who own the place are always very welcoming and pleasant.
Came across this place by accident. With the views and the interesting selection of drinks this place is fantastic for an unwind after work.Also the French guy with the beard is always up for a chat.
