Bars and clubs are scattered across the town but as the city is fairly compact it’s never more than a five or ten minutes ride between places, usually less. And there are several little clusters of bars and nightspots around town allowing you to hop easily from one to the next.Phnom Penh’s sex industry is world famous, though far less glamorous than the likes of Pattaya or Angeles City.
There is no centralized red light district in Phnom Penh, but the area around Street 130, Street 136 and Street 51 is where the majority of bar girls can be found, at any time of the day or night. Most of the ‘bars’ are little more than brothels with beer, although some run a clean, friendly operation.
All of the girls that work there are available to takeaway, at around US$15-25 for a ‘short time’ or up to US$50 for the whole night, depending on your bargaining skills. A bar fine(10$) will also need to be paid if you take the hooker from bar although make sure your hotel accommodates such visitors to avoid a scene on your return.
