The Cambodia-Japan Friendship Bridge has an interesting history, with the original bridge being destroyed during Pol Pots’ regime. After the fall of the Khmer Rouge there was simply not enough money to fund the rebuilding of the bridge, and it was not until recent times that with Japanese assistance the bridge was rebuilt.
The bridge can easily be reached with a 20 minute walk along Sisowath Quay from the riverfront area. Access to the bridge itself is easy, with spiral steps leading up to the bridge itself. Just hold your breath on the steps – they were stinky! You can walk over the bridge – there is a pedestrian “lane”, although bicycles and scooters were veering onto this lane when I walked across (as with all Cambodian traffic, they just rode around me, but just take caution!). Near the middle is a little alcove which affords a degree of protection from the passing traffic and an excellent vantage point of both the river and the Phnom Penh riverfront area.
I enjoyed a walk up to and over the Friendship Bridge, as something a little different to do in Phnom Penh.

As bridges go, it's a fine bridge. It crosses a river. It's well built. It takes traffic across it. It does what it says on the tin.

It's a bridge - what's all the fuss about? It does what it says on the tin. Big and grey and concrete. You know the sort of thing. Gets you from A to B. Though the B - the peninsula - has all the fascination of watching paint dry. I cycled it easily in an hour. Nice juice/smoothie bar, though, opposite the big grey ugly new university building, was worth a stop - and free wi-fi too...

Took a year and a half to renovate one of the bridges.Traffic is flowing again and both brides are working. I know it's a bridge, but try cycling every day using only one!

The view up or down river from the middle of the bridge is OK, though spoiled by that hideous scar on the landscape, the Sokha Hotel on the peninsula. Good for a photo or two, of the fishing boats, of the river etc. Getting up the stair wells on the city side fo the bridge can be disgusting, people poo and urinate in there and it is frought with the danger of getting toe deep in feaces. The stench can be overwhelming. Wish peopel did not live like pigs.

It really is just another bridge over the river and was built in 1966. Busy with trucks mainly, the bridge is approx. 700 meter span over the Tonle Sap River. On tour ad pointed out by our guide in passing.

Unless of course you like the smell of feaces and stale urine. The stairwells are a disgusting and dmelly mess. Rubbish everywhere. Cambodians should be ashamed of this.
