too hot ? in Siem Reap

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

DIB Club is a great pool, sometimes they have DJs spinning tunes during the day, great spot for a Sunday sesh...yea food ain't the cheapest, but it's much more enjoyable than going to a shitty little hotel pool, most of which serve even more expensive food and drinks.
yup i posted some pics on here before of DIB club, ill see if i can dig them up

Kinda depends on your demographic and your purpose for the pool. If you want to do laps and exercise, or if you are younger and want to party and play pool volleyball or something.

Sokhalay has one of the nicer pools I have seen, but it is overrun now by Chinese (although the place is empty during the day) and the pool is the same standing depth throughout. It is a really nice atmosphere and spacious with nice lounging areas.

Funky Flashpacker has a nice vibe if you are younger; it is busy and full of younger bikini clad expats. If you fit into that demographic, you would like it there, even though the pool is a typical rectangle and not too large. You can also swim for free if you buy your drinks.

There are tons of places to take a splash where you can swim for free if you buy a drink, and they are fine for cooling off. I find I always stay at places with pools because I like the ambiance of it, even though I rarely use them.

Anyone that would go into a hotel/guesthouse and use their pool without at least ordering a drink or a small plate of chips (french fries for you yanks!), is the cheapest of cheap charlies and should be laughed at imo. :plus1:
