Any supermarkets and restaurants down there?
Is there an expat community?
Rents a bit cheaper/better quality?
Just my 2 cents worth, I dont actually live there, but have spent a fair amount of time there over the years and have seen a lot of changes.
* because rule 1 of riding a bike here is to never look back - mirrors, over shoulder - none of that nonsense!!

It is certainly changing around the area with the new builds of the Boreys. Plenty of coffee shops and restaurants and supermarket's, and Dan's meats now has a shop there.
For supermarket's I tend to use Sambo, open until 10pm. If later there are plenty just a short ride over the river open 24 hours, and I would possibly tie that visit on return from a restaurant.
Just a few more maps for you.
I am still finding things around the area myself and I must have been here over 6 months now.
Came across a little Khmer coffee place the other evening on the Riverside.
The other thing is like now for me traveling around, such as heading towards Kampong Cham, I tend to get the ferry so I don't ride in the city at daytime, at $1 for two people and the Moto it's a good price.
It does appear that khmers like Western fast food.

Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
It does not fit their real estate model.
Hey, why do Khmers like Pizza and hate cheese?
Also, they don't go much for chocolate. Never figured that out.

The café next to the Mekong River under the brand "Coffee Chow" in the village of Chan Chan, Sangkat Chbar Ampov 2, Chbar Ampov district started sinking into the river at 12 noon on September 29, 2019.
According to the shop owner, the heavy rainfall, mixed with continuous winds for several days, led to the rising tide of the river, causing the columns to collapse. The place was becoming dangerous, so he and his family decided to shut the cafe, collect all their belongings, and get to safety.
Shortly after they moved out, there was a heavy rainstorm causing the wellknown cafe to collapse into the river almost 100%. Fortunately no one was hurt. Unfortunately, the family's residence, built on the same riverbank, is also threatened.
