I can't remember the names of these places but there is a cracking spot away from the riverfront with some cool bars and a couple of nightclubs.....memory is hazy....but I am smiling too....get the picture?

I love PP....you will have a great time....dont be going back to random stranger's houses....avoid the crap hash pizzas...drink to excess and enjoy a discreet bit of this n that.

Couple of places approaching Soi Cowboy's quieter areas.....Cambo don't do in ya face but anything goes much more than BKK.

Keep yer wits about you and have a great trip!

I'll just throw in the fact there are a lot of good restaurants with a wide variety of good food on St. 172 from Norodom to the riverside (St. 5, actually). You will want to check out the riverside bars and restos but I personally never go there.

Yea there are several good, cheap places to eat along there, particularly the block of St,172 between St.19 and 13 as it seems to be the new backpacker hotspot since the closure of the Lakeside backpacker area

Thanks for this - sorry the 'closure' of Lakeside?

Boeung Kak is an area situated in Khan Daun Penh and Khan Toul Kork in the north of the capital city of Cambodia, Phnom Penh.[1] It was covered by largest urban wetland in Phnom Penh, prior to the Shukaku Inc. land project.[2] Residential areas, businesses, restaurants, hotels, embassies and other local businesses previously surrounded the area of the lake. The lake itself was 90 hectares big.[3] In 2007 the Cambodian government made an agreement with the company Shukaku Inc. stating that the government would lease the land to Shukaku Inc. for 99 years. This agreement has resulted in the filling of the lake with sand in order for the company to build condominiums and other complexes on the land. The change of the lake and the area surrounding the lake has had several social and environmental impacts. Several non-governmental organizations in Cambodia as well as international actors have spoken up about Boeung Kak Lake. In 2010, 90 percent of the lake had already been filled with sand.

Apologies for the cut and paste job, but this is a good explanation for you. There used to be a lot of cheap hostels, guest houses, bars and happy pizza places on the lake front and it was backpacker central. Unfortunately, the biggest impact of the lake closure is the forced eviction of thousands of local residents, who have been left homeless with no compensation.

Rarky is correct. It is St. 13 not 5. And yes, from 19 but I was trying to include One Star on 23, just in from Norodom.

Yep. And they have organized, the women especially (often just referred to as "the Boeung Kak Ladies"). Several have been jailed and recognized by Amnesty int as prisoners of conscience. See http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/684003-yorm-bopha-to-be-freed-on-bail/

PP is a good place to visit for a few days and explore, plenty of night life as others have detailed very well.

Try the Tone sap guest house for some reasonable priced accommodation in good area.

And make sure you try the Angkor draft beer is great and very cheap.

Enjoy PP but just watch your wallet in those night clubs and keep an eye on your drinks for drink spiking and you should be fine.
