Eight months ago brothers Yazzx and Izzit moved to Snooky (nickname for Sihanoukville) to live the dream of living and working in a beach paradise.
The brothers are professional online poker players who were sucked into a world of seven days a week of hardcore partying.
During this time, they drastically reduced their poker playing time and their finances slid backwards due to their excessive partying (successful poker players need to have a strict work schedule with discipline and constantly study).
Frugality lead to finding a way of having a great time, on a very low budget.
Utopia is the starting point for our tour.
A popular bar and hostel with backpackers, Utopia hosts a happy hour from 9:00- 10:00 P.M.
4 cups of beer = $1
JJ’s is one of Asia’s most known backpacker party spots.
On the way to JJ’s you will be able to score a free shot on the main walkway on the beach at another bar. Also on arrival at JJ’s you will receive a welcome whiskey shot.
From 10:00 – 11:00, JJ’s offers 4 beers for one dollar.
Drink count: 10
Running cost: $2
On the walk from Utopia to the beach you can pick up flyers for free drinks from foreigners in the street who are promoting for the bars.
This will give you four more free drinks (whiskey and Red Bull is on the list) at four different bars from 11:00 – 12:00.
You can also get three free shot from Serendip, JJ and Dolphin.
To fit the above tasks you must be aware of your time, as it slips by fast.
Drink count: 17
Running cost: $2
JJ’s is the best place to buy special balloons, which will set you back a dollar.
This is where things get interesting.
From 12:00 – 12:30, JJ’s offers a bucket of booze that includes up to 4 shots of whiskey and a mixer.
JJ’s also has a worker walk around and give random shots after 12:00.
Drink count: 21
Running cost: $4.00 (includes $1 for the balloon )
A mere 30 minutes later after receiving your JJ’s four shot bucket another one is right around the corner.
Dolphin Shack has a bucket from 12:30 – 1:00, which costs a buck which includes similar contents of alcohol.
Final drink count: 24 (can be increased by getting more free shots)
Final cost: $5.00
The party by the beach will continue all through the night after the last bucket.
You can choose to dance, act like an idiot, or sit back and people watch.
