If you are looking for the best places to meet girls in Sihanoukville and a dating guide for this city then we certainly have you covered. Generally our posts are loaded with tons of nightclubs, singles bars, romantic restaurants, and plenty of date spots but things are going to be a little different here.
This is a pretty small town and the vast majority of the above spots are all located in the same area near Ochheuteal Beach. If there was a summary it definitely would read ‘hang out near Ochheuteal Beach’ but don’t worry, we do have more info then that forthcoming.
In this post about the best places to meet girls in Sihanoukville we will also cover Koh Rong. This is an island just off the coast that is really growing in popularity with backpackers and is probably worth a visit.
Table of Contents
We will begin with the singles nightlife, mention some options for day game, and cover online dating on top of that. Then we will switch it up to our guide to dating which will be more about where to take any sexy ladies you might meet to show them a good time.
After we have covered all of that we will give some brief but important travel tips for any tourists or new expats to Southeast Asia. That probably means pretty much all of our readers as we don’t expect too many local Khmer guys to be reading this post.
Whether you are solo and hoping to hook up or are on a trip with a special lady we have plenty of tips coming. However we do want to mention that this city is changing very quick as there have been big investments made, particularly in the casino industry.
We will do our best to keep you up to date on where to find Sihanoukville girls near you, but don’t be surprised if the scene is a little different when you arrive.
Nightclubs & Pick Up Bars
Some of the best singles bars and nightclubs to try to pick up girls in Sihanoukville are:
While we will cover this more later in the travel section it definitely needs to be mentioned here as well. Cambodia is a country filled with mostly conservative people who are not big on partying after dark.
If you go into the city and get off the main touristy roads you will notice that the streets are pretty much empty by 9pm and just about everyone is at home preparing for bed. The main reason that there are any pick up bars or nightclubs would be because of the tourists, not for the locals.
There are some exceptions of course, but the majority of the people you see out partying in the singles nightlife are going to be tourists, most local girls who are still out at midnight are likely to be prostitutes. If you did want to try and hook up with some local Khmer women who aren’t prostitutes the main bars to find them are LV Disco and Skyline.
JJ’s, Sessions, and Monkey Republic are all in the Serendipity Road or Ochheuteal Beach touristy area. There are plenty of other bars and clubs down by the beach and they are all right next to each other.
Popular bars like Utopia and Dolphin Shack have apparently closed down but surely new owners will come in, change names, and get them running again soon if it hasn’t happened already. Just remember that the main area for singles nightlife is at the beach at the end of Serendipity Road, the names may change but that area will stay the same.
If you are looking to hook up with girls in Sihanoukville and not wanting to pay to get laid then hitting on the tourists partying at Ochheuteal Beach is where you need to be. Similar to what you may have noticed if you were going out on Pub Street in Siem Reap.
Meet Sihanoukville Girls During The Day
Guess where our main spot for day game is as well!? Yup, that is right, Ochheuteal Beach. Many of the tourists here are going to stay on Serendipity Road and with nothing better to do during the day they will head down to the pier, turn left, and get some sun.
All along Serendipity Road there are many guesthouses that have open air bars for a lobby. If you see a group of girls grabbing drinks then head in, order a beer, and try to work some magic.
Other options to meet girls in Sihanoukville during the day would be to head over to the less active Otres Beach, or get on one of the party boats that leave from Serendipity Pier.
Chat With Girls Online
This is not a very easy city for you to hook up with local Khmer women, unless you don’t have a problem paying to do so. If that is the case then you will see plenty of ladies of the night out but that isn’t really a good topic for our dating guide.
One of the easiest ways for you to contact local girls will be to use Asian Dating. This is the top dating site in Cambodia and will be the best way for you to meet girls in Sihanoukville online.
Contact them before your trip and then try to set up some dates when you get there. They are generally pretty conservative so don’t expect them to come straight to your hotel and hook up when you get into town, but Asian Dating will definitely give you your best chance of dating or getting laid with women here that aren’t tourists.
You could also message girls from around the country and offer to refund their cheap bus fare if they want to spend a weekend on the beach with you.
Sihanoukville Dating Guide
Now you are aware of the best places to pick up single girls, lets turn to our Sihanoukville dating guide. Once again it is mostly going to revolve around Ochheuteal Beach. In fact our top recommendation would be to have a candle lit fresh seafood dinner on the beach, and this will only cost you a few dollars per person!
This is a budget friendly city all around so cheap dates are easy to come by. Some good restaurants you could try are:
Day Date Ideas
Head to the beach. Ya, that is what this city is all about, but this time for a day date maybe head over to Independence or Victory Beach just to switch up the scenery a bit. Either way finding a cheap date spot won’t be hard.
You could also go to
- Ream National Park
- Kbal Chhay Waterfall
- Snake House
The Snake House is a reptile park with all sorts of snakes, many of which are venomous, plus lots of crocodiles and some other reptiles and animals are around also. Ask your tuk-tuk driver if he knows where to see any monkeys on your drive over.
Try scuba diving, snorkeling, rent a jet ski, or go out on one of the party boats. If you did want to try some scuba diving you might be better off in Koh Rong so lets cover that island real quick.
Dating Girls On Koh Rong
What Ochheuteal Beach is to Sihanoukville Tui Beach is to Koh Rong. If you want to meet girls in the singles nightlife do it at Tui Beach, if you are looking for good date spots find them at Tui Beach, and try to get a hotel at Tui Beach if you are going to stay overnight.
Some of the best bars to meet single girls on Koh Rong would be:
If you wanted a more romantic date spot outside of the backpacker district head over to Long Set Beach and choose a restaurant in that area. One of the best day dates in Sihanouville or Koh Rong is scuba diving and the Koh Rong Dive Center can get you set up with that.
Tips For Tourists & Expats
Now lets get into some travel and dating tips for tourists and new expats in town. Lets cover the travel first, you can get to Sihanoukville from Phnom Penh in a few ways, most people take a bus, van, or taxi but you can also fly in.
The bus will run you around $5 and take close to 5 hours, a van will cost around $10 and take 4 hours, a taxi will charge $60ish but you can split it up between everyone taking the ride and it will take 3 to 3.5 hours. A flight will probably be over $100 per person.
To get to Koh Rong you want to take one of the speed boats from the pier and that will cost you $20 round trip. There are cheaper options but they take a lot longer.
Everything in Sihanoukville is cheap, hotels can easily be found for under $20 with air conditioning or fan rooms can be had for $5. On Koh Rong the prices will be higher, you may need to pay $30 to stay in a tiki hut with no electricity. There are also no roads on the island yet so expect to go everywhere on foot.
The travel part of the equation is easy to figure out, this is your typical tourist beach town with just about all of the singles nightlife and things to do nearby. Now lets move over to the dating side of the equation and our advice here is the same as it was when we were talking about Phnom Penh.
This is an extremely poor country where the average monthly wage is under $200. It is also a very religious and conservative place and a very low percentage of Khmer people go out to party.
When you do see Cambodian girls at a bar or club they are probably prostitutes. Don’t mistake that for us saying all Cambodian women are hookers, that is far from the case, just most of the ones who are out after dark are.
So when you are trying to pick up girls in Sihanoukville or Koh Rong you are probably better off trying to hook up with other tourists unless you want to pay to get laid.
Enjoy Dating Sihanoukville Girls
Like all places around the globe this city has some very strong positives but some distinct negatives as well. Lets be optimistic first and talk about how cheap everything is and how great it is to be able to get a hotel room walking distance from the nightlife for a fair price.
Where else can you stay a five minute walk to the main beach and bar district in town for under $20? There aren’t many places around the world where you can say that.
On the flip side this is definitely a third world country and if you have high expectations for your beach vacation you might be let down. There are no luxury nightclubs here, mostly just open air beer bars. Finding certain supplies might be hard, and the infrastructure of the city leaves a lot to be desired.
But with a constant stream of slutty backpackers coming through, particularly in peak season between November to April, you have a good chance of hooking up. Plus there are always some sexy ladies on Asian Dating to chat with.
That wraps up our best places to meet single girls in Sihanoukville and the dating guide, enjoy your time here.
