As the main international gateway to Cambodia, Phnom Penh International Airport (PNH) has flight arrivals from Southeast Asian cities such as Bangkok, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur in addition to ones in China and Japan. The passenger terminal is modern and houses all the amenities that 21st travellers have come to expect as standard.Don’t Miss
The International Airport is about 12kms west of central Phnom Penh and Sisowath Quay. The journey between the two can take 30 minutes in a taxi during peak hours. Motorcycle taxis or tuk-tuks are often the quicker option. The front gate of the airport is on Confederation de la Russie. This road is the main route to Phnom Penh and, in the opposite direction, to Sihanoukeville, Kep and Kampot.
Attractions around the Phnom Penh Airport are not abundant and accommodation in the locality is more useful for those arriving or leaving on flights early in the morning or late at night. Visitors attending meetings at the Royal University are within easy distance. The modern Sovanna Shopping Centre is not too far either and has a good range of products.Restaurants and Bars
Phnom Penh Airport is in a zone with factories and houses the main features. There is a good choice of eateries in the area which mostly serve local food like amok curry and fried rice. Sandwich stalls sell French style baguette rolls. Most of the eateries serve cold draught and bottled beers. The choice of eateries is more international in the airport terminal and at the Sovanna mall. Burgers, pizzas, KFC fried chicken and Swensen’s ice cream are among the choices.Shopping
The souvenir outlets at Phnom Penh Airport carry a good range of souvenirs although prices are probably not as low as in the city’s Central or Russian markets. Souvenirs include silk clothing and headscarves, wooden elephant statues, and paintings and carvings of the temples at Angkor. There are also duty-free shops selling alcohol, cigarettes and chocolate. The area surrounding the airport has limited shopping opportunities. Sovanna is the only place nearby for items like shoes, jeans, IT accessories and mobile telephones.
