How much do you spend on a good night out in Phnom Penh?

Post by RickOrMorty »

here in Bangkok, i can spend the night at a gogo bar for 1,000-2,000 baht without going home with anybody but still call it a successful and good night. at the beer bars, if i spend that much, i expect someone to come home with me. at a club here, i'll spend 2,000-3,000 baht.

i feel like i usually spend a lot more in PP and get less out of it. in the sense that i feel like i will even spend $30 if i'm sitting out at a table at GSM people watching, and much more if i hang out at a beer bar all night.

if i let my hair down in Pattaya i can get through 12,000 in a night, but i can also have a good night on 4000 and a lot of fun with 6000
an average night out in PP for me will be between $1-200 and its not always guaranteed a good night, can be very hit and miss
i find Thailand a let better value for money and more entertaining regards to a night out (not including Bangkok though, BKK is a ripoff)

i did a price breakdown in this thread general-chatter/2018-why-not-choose-exp ... 98-20.html

Phnom Penh - $1 to $2
Phnom Penh Happy hour - $0.75
Pattaya bar - $1.25 (40baht)
Pattaya Agogo - $1.50 to $2 (45-69baht)

Bottled Beer:
Phnom Penh - $3.50 to $4
Pattaya - $2.25 to $3 (70-90 baht)
Pattaya Happy hour - $1.50 (50baht)

Spirits+mixer:
Phnom Penh - $3 to $4

Since this is a Cambodian forum (and I’m not good at Maths) - what’s that in dollars?
