There’s a hangover-inducing glut of places to drink in Siem Reap. Much of the city’s drinking and nightlife is fairly down-at-heel – epitomized by the raucous, wall-to-wall drinking holes lined up along Pub Street, although more characterful and laidback bars can also be found here. Booze is cheap (and regular happy hours make things even cheaper) – draught beer (usually Angkor) is widely available at $1 a glass (sometimes even less) and cocktails usually go for just a few dollars. It’s also worth trying some of the more unusual Asian-style cocktails available at places like Asana and Miss Wong, as well as sombai (made using rice wine infused with herbs and spices, available at Asana, the New Leaf Book Café and elsewhere).
