Phnom Penh nightlife and the girls pretty good. It is as intriguing as an Asian city should be but also has a homely feel to it that Bangkok, Singapore, Ho Chi Minh and Hong Kong do not have. Possibly because it is fairly small at just over one and half million people, but also because there is a dearth of tall skyscrapers.
But it’s noisy bustling streets with crazy cyclists weaving in and out of traffic are the same as anywhere in South East Asia. And perhaps that is why it is getting more and more popular as a tourist destination.
Phnom Penh’s nightlife has also grown rapidly over the last five years, partly to cater for the influx of tourists but also because the Cambodian’s are coming out of their shells in terms of partying.
