The Best Party Places In Siem Reap

The Best Places To Party in Siem Reap

Siem Reap has a club for everyone and basically there are two kinds of discos: those visited by many tourists and expats and the clubs that are popular among the locals. Popular clubs among expats and tourist can all be found within the Pub Street area. Local clubs are spread throughout town, but many can be found in Khmer Pub Street.

A night out in Pub Street

Pub Street is located in the center of Siem Reap and located nearby the Old Market. During the daytime you can do some shopping, visit the old market, have a massage or eat something at one of the many restaurants in and around Pub Street. Night life starts early in Siem Reap, around 21:00 and continues until early morning

Khmer Pub Street

If you’re more into local life, then you may want to explore the local variant:  Khmer Pub Street. There you will find Club Galaxy, one of the few local discos and a large number of KTV’s (Karaoke Television).

KTV’s here serve great local food, cheaper beer and have special karaoke rooms. If you visit Khmer Pub Street, don’t expect the tourist treatment: staff often don’t speak English.

RECOMMENDED DISCO TOUR!

We recommend you to start your dance experience around 22:00 and start at Cheers, which is located at the beginning of Pub Street. It has an excellent vibe and especially during the weekend, you’ll find people dancing in the streets. Best thing about Cheers is that the play all sorts of music. After a visit to Cheers, move on to Temple Club which is located opposite the Angkor Wat?! bar, which also has a small dancing area. Temple club has two floors and a roof top bar. If you’re hungry the second floor is the place to grab some food and the rooftop bar not only has a great design, but also excellent vibes. 

Once you’ve experienced Temple Club and Angkor Wat?! bar, head over to the Yolo bar to catch you’re breath, have a great cocktail, enjoy the view and get your feet moving again. It’s a very nice place and it’s only a 2-3 minutes from Pub Street. The last club on your list should definitely be the X-Bar, which is located  at the beginning of Pub Street above the (probably) most expensive supermarket in Siem Reap. The place has a nice roof top all sorts of music is played. There i a small dance floor, two pool tables and a football table. 

Pub Street on a small budget

The Pub Street area is where all the tourist go and this means that clothes and food are very expensive, while the quality is not always very good.

Beer and drinks however, are still affordable, especially when you start your night early during happy hours. Beer at the X-Bar is just one dollar, so if you’re really on a tight budget, a night at the X-Bar will not only entertain you, but will keep your spending within your budget.

Choose a good accommodation

If you plan to party a lot during your stay in Siem Reap it’s best to choose an accommodation nearby the Pub Street area. Kotchi-Ke Dormitory is our recommended hostel, which also has some private rooms.

If you prefer a hotel nearby, we recommend the Chhay Long Hotel & Spa. Both are located at a 3-5 minute walk from Pub Street. Walking will save you the trouble of finding a tuktuk and negotiating prices.

A WORD OF WARNING

Pub Street is definitely a very safe area to visit. There is 24 hours surveillance and if anything happens police officers with or without uniform will quickly be at the scene. However, always keep in mind that you’re a visitor and some things are simply not accepted. Shouting, swearing or showing indecent or violence behavior will definitely get you in a lot of trouble. If you find yourself in a problematic situation, the best way to deal with it is to stay calm and negatiate a solution. 

LADY BOYS

If you’re guy travelling solo, you will probably be addressed by one of the lady boys walking around Pub Street, who invite you to join them or accompany you to your room. Keep in mind that waking up with wallet and phone missing is a common story among single male visitors who accept these kind of invitations.

Finding company for the night on the streets in Siem Reap is a bad idea. Just like in any other country, you’ll be better of trying your luck in one of the many bars and clubs

DRUGS

When walking around Pub Street you may be addressed by people or even tuktuk drivers who offer you marijuana or other kind of drug, like cocaine or meth.

Keep in mind that using any kind of drug is illegal in Cambodia. There is also a big chance you’ll get scammed, eather by not getting what you paid for, paying way too much or getting yourself arrested and forced to pay a huge fine or end up in jail.
