“In the past 10 years, we can see that the real estate market expanded from Phnom Penh city centre to the west. While in the past five years, we saw a boom and expansion to the north. In the present day, the trend is moving to the south,” said Mr Seap, founder and director of Key Real Estate.

According to Mr Seap, the reason that the property boom hasn’t yet expanded to the east is because there is no bridge connecting the city centre to the other the side of the river.

“However, from my analysis, the east side of Phnom Penh is a good location. We can see a view of the whole of Phnom Penh city from that side, which is good for building condominiums, hotels and serviced apartments in the near future,” he explained.

“I guess in the next five to 10 years, especially when there is a bridge, the real estate trend will move to the east. The land prices will also go higher. I expect a big boom there,” he added.
