Maybe on your second night, first night or even first afternoon while walking around Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or whatever place you are visiting first: You will see a bar with young and attractive Cambodian girls sitting outside, smiling at you as if they have been anticipating your arrival for the whole day and saying: “Hello handsome man, have a drink!” If this is your first experience of passing a typical girly bar then maybe you are too shy to try it out, simply because you don’t know what is really going on in these places.The bar fine doesn’t include any of the price for sex – that one has to be negotiated with the girl separately.They usually ask for 50 USD for short time and 100 USD for long time but that’s really only their first offer.Negotiate a little and you may bring down that price easily.There is really no fixed fee for sex with a Cambodian bar girl – you will need to figure it out for yourself every time again.
And unless you aren’t much into karaoke it’s not that much fun anyway compared to the foreigner-oriented bars. So let’s say you just walk into a bar to see what it is like.
So in this article I will not only explain to you what you can expect by visiting a girly bar but also what it is like to have sex with Cambodian bar girls, what to look out for, how to make the most of your money and basically how you have the best possible time without burning your fingers.
First of all it’s important to know that there are two types of girly bars in Cambodia: The hostess bars (picture) which are oriented to western foreigners (also called Barangs) and the karaoke bars or bigger KTVs that are mainly oriented to local Khmer guys and Asian tourists.
Unlike in Thailand where they like to charge 20 Baht per game they are usually free over here. Anyway what you could do is after you had a look at the selection of bar girls you can smile (back) to one you like and have her sit with you. Yes that’s right, because they seem so cute and innocent they may give you the feeling that they really like you (well, that’s often the case).
She will then start with the typical introduction questions like “Hi, what is your name? If you get on well with her you can buy her a lady drink.
