    Cambodia, Phnom Penh

    I went to Cambodia today, this is what reminded me of this site.

    Linky Link

    Mikey's Riverfront Bar is a spacious and elegant place for a relaxing drink or meal. Mikey's staff is always willing and able to assist you in serving you delicious western and Khmer delicacies from our a-la cart menu.

    Catering to local ex-pats, embassy personnel, business travelers and professionals from around the world, Mikey's is the perfect place to stop and relax from your most recent Cambodian adventure.

    Mikey's is famous locally for leisurely afternoon Mekong River Cruises either up river to Mekong River islands and temples as well as down river excursions to delicious floating restaurants.

    Often times, guests and regulars grab their fishing poles and head off for a day of fishing at relaxing locations such as Soun Soben, only 14 kilometers out of Phnom Penh.


    Mikey's large and spacious rooms are elegantly appointed with high ceilings, Cable TV, mini-bars and in-room coffee and tea making facilities.

    All rooms are also air-conditioned for your comfort, with each room also having fans.

    In addition to the expected hot water, mirrors and basins, many rooms have baths with showers while others are shower only Unlike most hotels in Asia, Mikey's Guesthouse even has hot water in the basins!


    makes Cambodia almost sound civilized, hes got some nice travellogues in there aswell.

    Oh dear, I think he is french, my apologies to everyone.....

    Some of Mikey's guest having a four-course seafood afternoon lunch on one of the many floating restaurants along the Mekong River.

    You can't imagine how incredible the frog legs, barbequed pork ribs, jumbo shrimp and spicy shrimp soup was at this setting. Both the food and service were fit for a King!

    Siem Reap

    Bars and whores

    The Banana Leaf - Located on the same street as the Temple Bar and Angkor What?, this very open air bar is a great place to set outside and watch the night unfold.

    Brodies - One of the more laid back places on Pub Street. Glenn is a heck of nice guy and has some of the nicest staff in town. The lovely lady behind the bar that can make one hell of a cocktail is named "Srey Touch". Her teacher and mentor until the 1st of September is Mr. Kim, a master bartender by anybody's definition. Two other helpers are Nareth (girl) and Narith (boy).

    Dead Fish - One of my favorite places with a rather eclectic crowd. Live music in the evenings usually performed by a blind piano player who has been in town playing for years. Very open environment with hand lifts which take food to customers on the second level. Free Internet with 3 computers if you stop in an buy a drink or have some food. With Internet cafe's all charging $1 an hour, this is a nice advantage. Also a great place to meet people.

    Ivy Bar - Good food and very open as it sets on the street corner. Great place to watch the scenes around you unfold. There is a single pool table in the back with one of the most warped tables I have ever played on. You can get a cool draft here during the day for a $1 with pretty decent lunch specials.

    Laundry Bar - One of the up and coming clubs in Siem Reap which is located around the corner from the Angkor What?. Things seem to start to happen past midnight with a great selection of music and drinks. Frequented by local ex-pats, Siem Reap bartenders, and some of the nicer taxi-girls in town, this is a great place to chill from a long day in the temples!

    Martini is a place single men usually end up at. Martini's is not related to the same named bar in Phnom Penh nor is it anywhere as nice and enjoyable as the one in Phnom Penh. I have been there numerous times and unless I am missing something, I really can't find a reason to be there although others have said they had a good time. Guess it is a hit and miss proposition.

    Moloppor Cafe - A very interesting little cafe a couple of bridges up from old town heading to Angkor Wat. A bit hard to describe as it seems it is a cross between a Japanese and western coffee house. They serve "humburgers" (not a typo on my part) and a form of espresso. Lots of paperbacks in Japanese and John Denver on the CDs. Upstairs there is a sauna and bath house which allows women in from 6-8 PM and men from 8-10Pm for $2.00 each. I like the Japanese omelet with teriyaki sauce.
    The Paper Tiger - French owned. Nice place to relax with a huge used book store upstairs with over 10,000 books. They also show movies at night which is free. The owner is quite sociable as are the staff who work there. English is spoken by everyone but the focus is on the French ex-pat community in Siem Reap.
    quite a nice site

    its a party town
