What areas actually comprise 'Riverside' in your* mind?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

You’ll also find that they write that Independence Monument is near Wat Phnom. Real estate agents put as many famous landmarks as possible to increase search hits, and they never reveal the exact location until you go to meet them.

Once you have passed a wat or a market you are no longer at Riverside. Wat Ounalom, Kandal market, etc is not Riverside, they are known by those specific landmarks. By your logic almost all of Daun Penh is Riverside.

I agree that real estate agents aren't mostly known for their honesty. But yes. By my logic, almost all of Daun Penh is indeed Riverside. It's the CBD, inner city of PP.

For me, and not based on any particular logic, riverside in PP begins at old titanic restaurant and ends around where the opera hall is nearby ministry of religion and cult.
