Learn Some Khmer

Some usefull conversation to use playing pool

And another chance for me to get some beer money

Speak Khmer With Cambodian Bar Girls When Playing Pool

It seems as though almost every bar in Phnom Penh has a pool table.  Even if you are not a fan of 8 ball, you’ll no doubt find yourself in a pool game with a girl at some point if you are here long enough.  It always makes it a bit more interesting to make a few comments to your female pool opponent when you play.  You may even understand some of what she is saying to you; a super bonus if your girl of choice does not speak a lick of English.
