Christmas in Southeast Asia

‘Twas the night before Christmas

When all through South Asia

Hostels were stirring

From Vietnam to Malaysia

The backpackers stumbled off to their dorm beds

While visions of cheap drinks danced in their heads

But the ones at Mad Monkey had the most fun that night

They fell asleep saying – that party was tight! 

So Christmas is just around the corner, and here you are in Southeast Asia. Maybe you missed a flight, or maybe this was your plan all along. Either way, it’s time to find a good crew and make some memories. Mad Monkey has you covered, with awesome Christmas events at all of our hostels. Book a bed today and join in the fun.

Christmas in Cambodia

Christmas in Phnom Penh

Get down and get festive in the capital of Cambodia! We’ll be jingling our bells from 12pm to 12am. Get Christmas Day started right: by the pool with a mimosa in hand. Don’t miss the feast in the Rooftop Bar, or the Secret Santa gift exchange (you never know what you’ll unwrap…). You may be missing home today, but we’re all family at Mad Monkey.
