Bird's Eye View of Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh is definitely not a city of high rise buildings or skyscrapers. At present, their tallest building only stands at 118.10 meter.


The Canadia Bank aka OCIC tower being the tallest building in PP 

However, to enjoy a bird's eye view of the city, one can easily do so from the 4th floor of Sorya shopping mall. Unlike many other cities bird's eye view spot, from Sorya, there's no need to pay any entrance fee or ridiculously overcharged prices for food or drinks. It's absolutely free of charge. From there, you can see the busy street life of the Cambodians below, the cars zig zagging across one another and endless rows of houses and shophouses lining the city. I noticed that quite a lot of shophouses/houses around the city have an open rooftop terrace. We managed to grab a few good shots, so do enjoy them. :)

Lots of bright-colored roof-tops. Blue and green are a bit usual though...for roof-tops that is...
