I just got back from a few days of biz in the Cambodian capital. I have always done Cambodia on a budget – cheap flights, cheap hotels and cheap eats. This time it was 5star hotels, drivers and nice dinners. Not saying it made a huge difference but it can make life a little easier. There has been a lot written about the hostess bar crackdown, the lack of the viets and so on. I can’t really tell the difference and I am not the hardcore monger always searching for the cheapest beer or the cheapest shag. My rule of thumb is you get what you pay for and if you want VN girls why not just go to VN?
Cambodia does offer a certain freshness in the service. The service people smile, the girls are happy to see you and the food is good value. I wanted to punch most of the motosai guys in the face and I was tiring of being asked if I needed a tour guide but apart from that the place actually irritated me a little less than previous trips. Could I live there? No way.
Some of the lowlife guys hanging there are worse than the pattaya scum, the traffic is getting appallingly bad (no transit options either), and absolutely no one knows where they are going. I don’t know how many times the motosai guy would stop and ask me if I have seen where I was going yet? I guess the assumption was if he drove around long enough I would see my destination and tell him to stop. I fixed this by keeping the hotel driver who seemed to know his way around. Nothing like pulling up to the bars/restaurants in a car.
A couple of things I noticed about PP. There are some seriously good looking white skinned girls. Not Chinese white but cambo looking with white skin. I went to get my hair cut at some joint and had one on my feet and one on my hands – working my nails. Gorgeous and chatty but my Khmer is non existent and their English was marginal. My driver says these girls, some in Uni, hang at places like the Rock and the Rose. Upper scale Cambodian discos. I did not get a chance to check it out but maybe the next trip.
You also see the prototype dark skin, Isaan looking, Cambo girls but the look that killed me was what I call the temple dancer style girls. Very Cambodian looking faces without the flat nose, dark or light skin but with very curvy bodies. Plump ass, a little bit of a belly and big boobs. I was in love more than a few times. This look I am after now and you just don’t see it in Thailand or Vietnam but I have before in Indonesia as well as Cambodia. Wow.
One night I am walking home and run into a freelancer and she fit this look perfectly. Mocha colored, huge tits and a visible pert ass. I was not in the pulling mode cause I had to be up early but I made a date to meet her the next night at the HOD. By the way the Heart was kicking every night with a mix of locals, FGs, p4p and non p4p. Goes late, music was kicking and ordering a bottle makes for an affordable night out. HOD – the place to be at night for pulling.
Another notable mention for the Pontoon. Same type of thing as HOD but on a big boat type of thing tethered to land. I think the HOD is better but Pontoon not bad.
Funny thing about being with a bunch of business people at a conference is during dinner watching people sort out who around the table wants to party. Party I mean going out and pulling – p4p or not. The hunt, the prowl – looking for puss. It is a delicate dance sorting out who among your colleagues or newly met industry friends are into going out or not. You start by asking guys around you and find a small group and then make an exit. Turns out a few of the guys I was mostly hanging with were on the same page.
One of them happened to mention he was looking to find this hottie he had met some months back. I mentioned I was looking for someone as well and we decided to head out. So there we were sitting on a few bar stools when I saw the girl I was looking for and she saw – my friend. The guy she was with a few months back. You should have seen the look on her face – was too funny. She was feeling pretty awkward about it all. Small world indeed – so there went my hookup for the night. A few guys mentioned to me that the p4p scene for FLs is small and this happens a bunch. Not my thing so I think I need to sort out how to find the normal girls looking for the great white hope.
We checked out some places one night:
Martinis sucked ass. It was dead as a doornail. For me that place is depressing and feels like a monger only pit stop.
Sharky’s was busy but did not see anything worth approaching.
Heart of Darkness was kicking – with decent music and a great mix. We got a bottle of Vodka and some cranberry juice. Awesome.
I don’t remember all the names or the streets but mostly 104,110 and 136 for hostess bars. IMO I did not notice a difference. Seemed to be plenty of girls and lots of places open. For me I just pop in and look to see if there are any hotties or a good vibe. On each street I found 2-3 fun places. Candy was probably my fav for the vibe and the playfulness of the girls.
I mostly enjoyed places like the HOD except for one issue. As everyone knows PP is plagued with NGOs – just too many of them in town pushing up the prices of apartments, clogging the streets with big gas guzzling cars and filling the bars with overweight white women looking for action. I was amazed how many times I was approached in HOD and was thinking about taking a fly swatter with me to fend them off.
Cambodia is fun though. The decent places offer great service without that edge that Thailand has given it is overrun with tourists. I love hanging at places like the FCC enjoying the views, the food and the awesome service. This became HQ for hosting business lunches.
Being a Metrosexual I also found the spas quite nice. Good value and also rammed with gorgeous Cambo girls who spoke awesome English. No extras on offer but still a fun place – maybe a spot to try and pick up for an evening date?
Just need to find out if any of these girls are on tagged so I can pre-arrange some hookups with the non p4p girls…
