How is Low Season in Victory Hill, Sihanoukville?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related.

Funny Carmelita.

Last time i was in Snooky, was a while back, 8-12 years ago, can't remember. What i do remember is that there were definately different classes of people, and that was reflected on where they tended to hang out. Yes, there were a few cool places, even 'hip' bars on the hill, like Papagayo, or Karim's bar. Different class of people.

Near Blue Mountain, there was a French bar. Another collection of hipsters.

But competitions in coolness, or just being themselves. The latter, certainly the latter.

I did feel though that if you wanted to find the 'competative coolness', all you needed to do was head to the busy bars in Serendipidy. Was where they gathered.

Finished a great italian cooked pasta meal for 4$, had a couple stoli vodka red bull for 5.5$ but only because last week prices in this drink hole were raised from 4.5$ for the same thing and I am now comfortably seated in a sofa, looking at the islands and incoming ships in these new appartements I have for rent.
Long Live Victory Hill ! :beer3:

There certainly seems like a lot of bars up for sale or just changing hands around Victory. Could be just the only area not being bulldozed, though

I went to an Italian and french party and they had rented a bar for a few nights most of the khmer women Were hi maintenence type who parade new cloths and I phone 6+ around just reminded of western women who try to make them look impossible to get.

No longer just being aa foreigner means instant beautiful high maintenance Khmer women.
Even Thailand they are using tinder to hookup.

Muscles , tattoos, tinder and money are now needed in Third world country's as well as america uk Australia etc etc .
nope its still primarily money
No not money.
When I first arrived back here in 2010, I use to sometimes ride around shouting in a lust filled voice "Gold! Gold! GOLD!".
you need money to buy gold :thumb: lol unless you got some gold trees for sale so i can grow my own :D hahaha
Sssssh! otherwise they will know where we get our money from.

Better business possabilities in Serendipidy, Ochoteal.

The Hill has just been tarmacked, but that isn't necessarily a good thing. Where's those damned photos? :stir:
