    Extremely bored in Phnom Penh, help!

    Got to PP last night and visited S21 and the Killing Fields - for all of an hour. Was bored stiff (excuse the pun, no disrespect intended)

    The road to the KFs are rotten, and I actually got tuk tuk-sick.

    Is there anything to do in this godforsaken city.

    Was thinking about a gander by the river and visiting the Foreign Correspondents Club (correct name?)

    Not a fuck interested in Wats, palaces, etc.

    This city sucks balls big time. Still got 36 hours left here.

    If you like that sort of stuff, the Russian markets are meant to be worth a gander.
    FCC is said to be nice too, but you'd be a sad old sod just to spend your time there, and you'll get to know as much about your locality as yer average foreign correspondent.

    Bored in PP? You're doing it wrong.

    You realise you're in a city with 24hr bars which never close, with an abundance of cheap and pure hard drugs, with an abundance of willing hookers just waiting about to suck one off for chump change, with an army base stocked with fully automatic weapons for you to fire? And you're bored?

    Seriously though, there is some really decent restaurants in PP, some really nice high-end bars, couple of decent clubs, plenty of live music options, some good local beer gardens etc. BKK1 area has some nice places frequented by frustrated female expats, st178 area has loads of backpacker type hangouts, st's 136, 104 and 51 play host to seedy hostess bars, Riverside has some nice places...always summat to do in PP if you get off your arse and have a gander.

    Are they particular about where you discharge them? Maybe start at the FCC.

    Go for a brewery tour at Kingdom brewery, sample a few of there ales, likewise you could go to the himawari hotel and micro brewery , take a dip in there pool if the weathers hot (it usually is) and like khmer said, go to some great restaurants, when the sun goes down hit a few bars,

    Hit the Russian Market today - same ol' same ol'. Bought a pair of shorts and had some Vietnamese-syle pho.

    Spent the day in bed sucking in the AC (it's 35c here today - fecking hot).

    Will head out tonight and see how far $100 gets me. I'm within walking distance of the river - actually wanted to see that ababndoned hotel that's slowly sinking.

    Might pop by the FCC to see what crumbly old men are there, for a laugh.

    BKK1 sounds good. Actually anywhere where I can get a cheapish drink, and chat up or be chatted up by a decent lady/princess of the night.

    Staying indoors till 6-7, until it cools off mildly..

    Went to the FCC - full of old boring cunts AND one smokin hot Asian gal (looked Chinese).

    Walked the river.

    Now I'm deciding if I want sleaze or frustrated expat gals. ..

    As per Rawlins story, I took a shot at the cow and also missed. I didn't pay for another round and I didn't pay for the cow.

    He wanted $400 for the round but I got him down to $300 on account I'd just had a go of 3 automatic guns with a duck each. Maybe the price included the cow, which looked like it was about to die anyway.
    Lang may yer lum reek...

    I should imagine the OP is as appealing to an expat whoopsie as roadkill might be to a vegan.

    Sounds quite stupid too. 35c is the average temperature for the entire fucking region at this time of year and humid too which makes it all feel that much hotter.

    Clearly an oik.

    Go to this place - I think Slap was a regular here.

    (I'm in PP as well at the minute - not boring at all....)

    Who the hell takes in a Foreign Correspondents Club unless one had business there?

    Perhaps it's not the particular locale or the inhabitants that initiate boredom.

    Consider the boorish source first...
