For visitors who already know when planning their trip that they also want to turn night into day when traveling, it is advisable when choosing accommodation to make sure that you are accommodated within walking distance of Pub Street, which is also listed under the name “Street 8”, if possible, in order to avoid having to rely on tuk tuks to get to and from the party mile. Especially at night, it is very quiet outside the tourist zones and walking is not recommended due to poor street lighting.

The big advantage for visitors to Pub Street in Siem Reap is that despite the many opportunities for partying and dancing, the whole street is considered relatively safe: the local authorities also keep a close eye on the party mile, the only warning being against pickpocketing. Prostitution, for example, is only present here unofficially, if at all. Visitors should therefore be aware that it could be a paid offer if they are approached by a lady in the club. Also, care should always be taken not to drink open beverages from strangers, as these could possibly have been spiked with narcotics.

In addition to the opportunity for exuberant partying, Pub Street also offers somewhat more relaxed ways to end a day of travel: many excellent restaurants have settled in the street, where there is, for example, the opportunity to once explore the Cambodian cuisine, which includes, for example, many exotic meats. It is also worthwhile to stroll past the market stalls and look for an interesting souvenir: Here, however, it is advisable in any case to negotiate a little about the price before making a purchase.

For visitors to Siem Reap, a trip to Pub Street should be a must: However, they should be aware that this is not an immersion in the “traditional nightlife” of the Cambodians, but rather an adventurous, entertaining party mile, which is primarily focused on the amusement of tourists from all over the world.
