This is Phnom Penh's cheap charlie area. It is home to many inexpensive bars, restaurants, guesthouses and also has a few hostess bars thrown in for good measure.
It is a good place to find $0.50 draught beers and many expat teachers congregate here in groups for the inexpensive offerings. The food is generally good here and many restaurants do take away service for the local expats.
The hostess bars were quiet on street 172 when I visited so I never ventured in as I generally don't like being a solo customer in a bar. The Apple bar girls were probably the best lookers from what I saw.
Sundance Inn and Saloon.
This place is pretty solid choice with rooms starting at around $20. It's guest friendly, they have a small swimming pool at the back and a lively bar area that is good to meet fellow travellers if that is your thing.
The first $1 beer of the trip was at the Sundance Inn and the $1 tacos there tasted fine (but could have done with some salsa).
$1 tuk tuk ride.
I went everywhere via tuk tuk or moto taxi and never paid more than $1 for a trip. September is the low season and there are far more tuk tuk drivers than customers so if one won't go for $1 then the next probably will.
Phnom Penh is not a place to wander around alone late at night, even around the tourist areas. I don't walk anywhere round these streets at night and always take motorbike taxis or tuk tuks.
I went too early on this night and didn't realise that the bars really get going from 9pm onwards.
It was interesting to see they are building a Hooters franchise restaurant right on Street 104. The tuk tuk guys said they were building a hotel upstairs too.
$0.75 beers at the Cheers bar all night long is a very good deal on Street 104. If there was a bit more atmosphere I would have hung around a bit longer but decided to move on...
Angry Birds Bar, Street 130
This bar was well run and had a few nice hostess ladies inside. Worth a look if you are nearby. Also, I spotted a tuk tuk on Street 172 that gives free rides direct to the Angry Birds bar, good if you are heading over that way anyway.
The Corner 136 bar
This hostess bar is probably my favourite in all of Phnom Penh as they have sexy dancing downstairs, a chill out area at the front and an upstairs seating area overlooking the street below.
They also have a lot of hostess ladies on their books. My one that I talked to was a very pleasant girl. She hangs around the bar every night drinking with guys so it's inevitable she'll go with a customer soon enough. It wasn't to be for me even though she was lovely, and petite at only 40 kg (I don't usually don't care for girls with a slim build like her). Some guy will get lucky and end up taking her back to the hotel...
Sorya Beer Garden
This place is popular with local expats and has cheap beer, pool tables and always a few freelancers milling around. I must have picked a bad night to visit as the selection of freelancers wasn't the best putting it mildly.
This nightclub is now has cover charges some nights due to it's increasing popularity. I think the club is ok, but not great. There was much more security on my visit and they were hassling me a bit for taking a couple of photos which was surprising.
Last drink on Street 136
I went for a last drink in a random bar here, turns out that there were 2 Korean guys buying drinks for the whole bar and the night descended into a blurry haze...
