There are none of the characteristic gogo bars for which Thailand is famous, and the Cambodian capital has a much more sleepy feel to it after dark.
There are, however, plenty of Phnom Penh nightlife attractions to keep most visitors happy for a couple of weeks at least and there is even an ever growing bunch of disenfranchised Thailand expats that are moving over to Phnom Penh on long-term visas.

It is certainly true that Cambodia is a few decades behind the Thai capital in terms of its economic development, and there are also some striking similarities between the sweet natured local ladies and those of Thai girls from years past, but nothing really compares to the Bangkok nightlife scene in the 80s and 90s.
Each bar will usually have anywhere from six to twelve hostesses that will be happy to keep you company.
I should point out here that there are some significant differences between these bars and the sort of beer bars that you find in Thailand.
Economic development and globalisation does not suit all tastes, and there are quite a few westerners that are no longer satisfied with life in the modern Thai metropolis.
Like I said before, the Phnom Penh nightlife scene does have some similarities with the Bangkok of old, and most important in the minds of the westerners that formerly lived there is the impression that whilst they are not quite so welcome in Thailand as they once were, in Cambodia they are made to feel much more appreciated.
