Lakeside is the backpacker hub of Phnom Phen. It is located on
the shore of Boeung Kak Lake, a short taxi ride from downtown. The
cheapest rooms are available for a couple of dollars but upgrading
is a good idea. The guesthouses with the best laid-back atmosphere
are spread far into the water with nice decks to lounge away the
heat or soak up the night air. Check out the guesthouses creatively
named #9 and #10. All the similarities of 'backpakerville' are
here: cheap eats, travel agencies and alternative bars with cheap
beer and unique cocktail names.
