What to do in the evening in Phnom Penh?

We will be in Phnom Penh for 2 days and 2 nights - we have the day time activities planned, but am not sure what to do in the evening.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Think about taking a couple of english-speaking local Khmer women from the informal, part time,Tourist Assistants team out to dinner and hearing about their life stories and life experiences in contemporary Cambodia. Khom and Sokun are great fun to spend an evening with.

Best regards. Ian

As Ian says above, enjoy a meal and wander along the River watching the Cambodians exercise.

Enjoy the sunset and Happy Hour at the Foreign Correspondants Club.

We did the sunset cruise on the Butterfly. (Beware cheap offers on dodgy boats!) we then had dinner at Tempui . A beautiful old Chinese house, great decor and amazing food, drink and service. Highly recommend!! Enjoy!

As Ian says an evening out to dinner with Sokun and Khom is an evening well spent. They are delightful. We also went to a traditional arts performance in the grounds of the National Museum at 7pm. and thoroughly enjoyed it but you would have to check if they are still performing. events@cambodianlivingarts.org

Don't go on the $5 cruise to see the sunset we did that. And it set off almost an hour late so we missed the sunset and it only stayed out for 35 mons. .. Go on one of the dinner cruises . Cost around $15 each. If yen of your nights are a weekend then have a walk around the night market.

hi Ian, Gariochlass and AnneG

Dinner and a river walk, a traditional arts performance and a drink at the Foreign Correspondents Club, definately appeal to our family for our trip next February. Thanks for the advice.

Just check the evening performance nights for Plae Plaaka during the low season at the National Museum.

Look under such names as Plae Plaaka or Cambodian Living Arts. I put up a fairly recent posting about this.

Best regards. Ian
