A bar crawl in Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh, Cambodia, has a happening bar scene, with cheap drinks and a friendly mix of tourist and expat imbibers—and at many places, the party lasts all night long. Don't expect a ton of glamour (with a few exceptions, mainly in hotels), but be prepared for potentially raucous fun. These are some of our favorite places in Phnom Penh for letting loose; to explore further, just walk down Street 51, where bars abound.

The Elephant Bar. For true luxury in the Phnom Penh drinking scene, visit The Elephant Bar, located inside the Raffles Hotel le Royal. Drinks are certainly more expensive than in other parts of the city, but quality is high, and the ambience is elegant. Elephant decor abounds, right down to the glasses that cocktails are served in. The food is excellent and the drinks are stellar—this is definitely the place to pamper yourself after a long day on Phnom Penh's busy streets.

We all recognize Los Angeles as the epicenter of all things film and TV, but there's another North American star city that frequently makes its way onto the big screen: Vancouver, British Columbia.

With a title like that, you know Vancouver has got to be full of fabulous restaurants and nightlife that draw stars and film crews alike after a long day of shooting. Here are some of our favorite spots from the updated Vancouver destination guide.
