There’s really not that much to do in Cambodia..especially at night apart from going out to the same set of bars and clubs. Actually, nowadays, there are a lot more events here than there were back in 2008 (when I left) but still, things to do are very limited. Ever since I came back for the summer, my sister has been telling me about this event called Nerd Night and told me I HAD to come with her. uhhh… Night out.. with nerds..? What is it? I tagged along anyway.
This was my second Nerd Night in Phnom Penh… and I love it! I finally got to meet the organizers in person and had a short but awesome conversation! Thanks!
This event, which happens on a Monday, twice a month, in different settings, brings the international community together for a night of interesting presentations, sharing passions in 20 slides and 20 seconds each.
The latest one I went to was held at Mao’s. Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos since it was really crowded and I was at the back but here are some photos by leboost.com from the previous Nerd Night which was held at Score Bar!

Feel free to join me next time I go. I’ll put up the event here! If you are just in & around Phnom Penh looking for things to do on a Monday night, this is a laid back event where you can meet a lot of people.
I also hear that there is a Nerd Night Siem Reap now. I’m hoping to check out their next one on 15.Aug!
