Phnom Penh



What kinds of gyms or other sports/workout facilities are available? Are they expensive?

There are a few gyms around the city. The good ones are a little expensive but for some people it's worth it. I work out at home. There are also frequent classes happening everywhere, like yoga, dance and Pilates. - May 2, 2017
New places open up all the time and there are numerous options including at the big hotels like Sofitel. Prices vary. - Oct 24, 2016
I was a member of The Place gym. Membership was US$650 a year (with an embassy discount) and included full use of the facilities (including pool) and all exercise classes. The Place is in BKK and was a 10-minute walk from my house. I loved it, went 2-3 times a week, and left Phnom Penh in possibly the best shape of my life. - Feb 13, 2015
Yes there are gyms around the city, though some may not be up to most U.S. standards. Most of the hotels have gyms that you can join and some of the bigger ones have tennis courts and a pool. There is also the Cambodian Country Club which is just outside of town (down the road from North Bridge) which has tennis courts, a swimming pool, horseback riding, a playground, basketball courts, a restaurant, a skate park, and is currently building some apartments. There is also a gym at the Embassy. - Aug 13, 2013
