Phnom Penh Nightlife

Post by HarrisonWhite » Fri Feb 28, 2020 12:55 pm

Is Phnom Penh nightlife (excluding the smartphones) similar to Bangkok's in the 1990's?

Are you asking about drinking and whoring, drug taking, fine dining/street dining or taking a relaxing foot massage?

It's as exciting as your wallet and charm can make it.

So your saying Cmabodia is better, not having all those horrible places you mentioned :-) I have definitely seen bigger rats in Bangkok than Phnom Penh, but Phnom Penh probably has a few more

You are a guy who tells this forum that you don't go to bars, so what exactly is your knowledge of the current or recent history bar scene in Phnom Penh to comment on it. Old guy nursing a beer in Larry's once month. Tony called you out in Snooky years ago, all mouth but no current experience.

Stiick to Phuket for the advice if anyone wants to go there. I
