This former hub for the Khmer Empire and French colonialists is now a sprawling urban jungle. With cheap living costs, a growing expat community, and a wide range of co-working spaces and coffee shops — Phnom Penh is rapidly becoming the prime destination for expats and remote workers in Cambodia. Phnom Penh’s shine was tarnished by the impact of war and revolution. But the city has since risen from the ashes to take its place among the hip capitals of the region, with an alluring cafe culture, bustling bars and a world-class food scene.
