Siem Reap is not Ko Pha Ngan. Having grown up around the incredible temples of Angkor, Siem Reap’s offerings are a little more profound than the prospect of getting deliriously trashed and waking up on the beach with a cute stranger and an ominous itch, so it’s no surprise that we won’t necessarily make it on to anyone’s list of top party destinations (though that may be changing).
But there is one night of the year when all the stops are pulled, when every pub on Pub Street puts on its best knickers, and goes wild. Last year, more than 5,000 people joined in for the massive New Year’s Eve party, with music, beer, dancing, and loads of fun. Led by the world famous (really!) Angkor What? bar, this was a party and a half, and they’re expecting even more people this time.
Pleading old age, we missed last year. But a trawl through our records brought up some images from 2009, which should give you ample reason for changing whatever plans you had and racing your way here for a fabulous New Year party. See you soon!
