Norodom Boulevard is a major boulevard of Phnom Penh, Cambodia named after King Norodom. It connects with Monivong Bridge in the south-east of the city at the Bassac River and joins with the north of the city at Wat Phnom.[1] During the French colonization period, it was formerly known as Boulevard Doudart de Lagrée.

It crosses with the east-west Sihanouk Boulevard at Independence Monument and near Wat Lanka.

The International School of Phnom Penh and Lycee Sisowath are located on the boulevard, as are the embassies of Singapore and Burma/Myanmar.
