River cruise and beach dinner next Tuesday


One of Phnom Penh’s unique events companies, 360 degrees, is offering a sunset boat trip down the Mekong River to a special beach location for a Valentine’s Day dinner party.

According to George Norbert-Munns, one of the four partners behind 360 degrees, the Valentine’s Day event will begin with a 45-minute evening boat cruise, followed by drinks, music and a candlelit dinner on a sandy Mekong island, which is visible only during Cambodia’s dry season. Tables will be arranged along the beach and a buffet dinner will be catered by the Tepui restaurant.

Tickets are available for purchase at The 240, a boutique hotel located at #83 street 240, and boats depart from Phnom Penh’s riverside port on February 14 at 5:15 pm sharp. A total of 40 tickets are available for the event, which is priced at $65 per person. The ticket price includes transportation by boat as well as food and drinks for the evening. “I think it adds to the experience when people buy their ticket in advance,” Norbert-Munns says. “That way they can just turn up and they don’t need to think about money during the event.”

A newly-formed activities and events company based in Phnom Penh, 360 degrees is planning to host at least one dinner party per month and according to Norbert-Munns, they are working towards the creation of an all-inclusive “mystery” dinner party series. “These parties will be advertised for a certain price and guests won’t know the location until they get there,” he explains.

For further information about the Valentine’s Day dinner or other upcoming events, 360 degrees can be contacted at 077 555 447 or [email protected].
