taking a rather sudden trip around s.e.a and whilst im trying to speed read a travel book on the region, i was looking for some help in determining where the backpacker/flashpacker areas are located.
im flying to bangkok but have been there before. from there going siem riep, is there a place that backpackers hang out in the evening?
going phnom phem for a couple of days, same question.
onto the bigger places. arriving in hcm city and at the time of writting, havnt reached that far in the book. if anyone could name a few street where backpackers hang out and there is cheap accommadation that would be awesome.
thanks in advanced and i know i have left it late so bring on the taunts.

Bangkok: Khao San Road
Siem Reap: Wat Bo and Bar St
Phnom Penh: Lakeside (or what is left of it)
Ho Chi MInh City: Pham Ngu Lao St
"Phnom Penh: Lakeside (or what is left of it)"
what do you mean by that, somtam?

The lake is slowly being filled in (to build some monstrous development which should ensure ALL of Phnom Penh floods every wet season) and the lakeside guesthouses will all be evicted.
thanks so much for all of the replies so far. really helpfull. note to self, dont move dates up 6 months without doing research first.
