Busy folks

A superior room at Villa Salt from $100/night
To encourage punters to get hold of a copy of their latest, and 2nd album, Cambodian Space Project are playing tonight, tomorrow and Sunday. Busy folks. Mao's is the venue for tonight's gig, from 9pm. Tomorrow, La Croisette restaurant on the riverfront will host CSP, again from 9pm. Both gigs are free entry. Copies of the new album, Not Easy Rock & Roll will be on sale. On Sunday they will take part in the Buckhunger street party to raise funds to feed homeless street kids at Street 460. And then they head for London and other destinations on yet another overseas tour.

Just back from another inspection of another new boutique hotel. Phnom Penh is bursting at the seams with white walled, contemporary-looking boutique hotels. There's a new one opening its doors almost weekly. This one was Villa Salt on St 294 in BKK1 district and next to a boutique shop of the same last name. Smallish pool, nice smart rooms, and a mix of hotel and apartment accommodation options in their twelve rooms, prices ranging from $80-150. There are cheaper options around town for pretty similar facilities, but Villa Salt was almost full when I visited, so that tells a story in itself.
