What you'll do

Night of Glitz and Glamour!

I will pick you up from your hotel/Airbnb and take you to a classy yet undiscovered rooftop bar to enjoy the view of Phnom Penh while sipping one of the best gin tonics in town. There we will have time and a nice atmosphere to discuss the local LGBT culture and the reasons why many Cambodian LGBT people end up in Phnom Penh.

From there our tour will get gradually glitzier.

Our second stop will be a local hot spot of beefed up boys who serve us drinks in their small shorts. There's quite a story behind many of the guys working there.

Around 11 pm you will enjoy the best drag show in Phnom Penh. This is something you don't want to miss! Blood, sweat and flying stilettos have been spotted before.

Last but not least you'll be escorted to the hottest gay club in town, where you can enjoy a second show while dancing your night away with local and foreign crowd. When was the last time you did Macarena?

I am a 31 year old gay man living in Phnom Penh, married to a local Khmer guy. I speak fluent Khmer and English. I have lived in Cambodia since 2014. Through my 4+ year relationship with a local man I have gained a deep understanding of local LGBT- and Khmer-culture. I am the perfect person to take you on a tour of local gay scene while showing you all the good, bad and the ugly sides my beloved Phnom Penh has to offer.

This was by far the funnest thing to do in Phnom Penh. I wouldn't have been able to find all these spots myself since the city is over run with bars and clubs. Each spot had its unique vibe and it was super fun to experience it with an expat.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience with Arttu in Phnom Penh! It was fascinating learning about LGBTQ life and culture in Cambodia and the drag shows were super fun! We don’t normally go out but Arttu made us feel comfortable the whole time. Would definitely recommend this experience!😍

I enjoyed the evening so much! The first bar was an amazing rooftop that I loved. Second one was with really fabulous guys. The other two was dragshows with fantastic girls 🙏🏼 It was the best evening I had during my stay in Phnom Penh!

The LGBT Tour by Arttu in Phnom Penh was amazing! He offered an individual tour tailored to my specific interests. I learned and experienced a lot about the developping scene in the capital and had a great time with my host. I fully recomend this tour!

A totally awesome experience. I had a night in Phnom Phen and found that Arttu was offering his AirBnb experience. What a blast! I'm not a bar person, but Arttu made me completely comfortable. He's been part of the Phnom Phen community for several years, so was very knowledgeable about the community, what LGBT life is like in Cambodia and certainly the bar and club scene. He picked me up at my hotel and headed to our first stop, which was a wonderful rooftop bar with fabulous views of the entire city. There we had a chance to chat and learn about each other's lives. Then we went to two other bars which were quite the experience. For the last bar, I opted for the go-go boy bar instead of the drag show ... he was totally cool with doing either. I felt that he really wanted to make sure the experience was a special one. And he was absolutely concerned that I made it back to my hotel safely. So, not only was this an exceptionally fun experience, it was also a real opportunity to have a personal glimpse into a community I would have never gotten a chance to. I would highly recommend Arttu's experience without reservation ... I've done several AirBnb experiences in different places, and this one is at the top of my list.
