While accommodation in the south side of the city offers a retreat from the high rents of the central suburbs, amenities are still at hand. Some of the major features include Sovanna Shopping Complex, the freshly constructed Boeung Trabek Plaza and the stalwart tourist attraction Russian Market. A number of restaurants catering to western-palettes have also started to emerge, as the area continues to blossom.
