Come for the music
What we say:
The area to the south of Otres Village, known as Otres Riverside, has become a laid-back enclave and home to a jumble of alternative souls who favour a simpler life, and the odd wild party. There, along the banks of a squiggly river, the Ou Trojak Jet, they have established themselves among the newly developing resorts. They have also built the site for Otres Market, a weekly “bizarre bazaar” with plenty of live music, food, drink and a string of market stalls selling everything from jewellery to crystals to cheese cake.
The stage and bar are set into a huge wooden building known as The Barn, where there’s also a large kitchen serving a number of dishes like amok and other Cambodian favourites. The food smelt tantalising, especially the pizzas baked in a wood-fired oven.
Things really start to take off here after 22:00, when the crowd fills out and the party kicks up a gear. You’ll need your Klang beer (“klang” is Khmer for “strong”) to keep up.
