Solo travel experience

Cambodia is beautiful, but I probably won't return. For the first time, I was happy to be leaving. Terrible filth, bodies thrown into the lake, trash everywhere, the stench, and very persistent people treating you like a money bag. Additionally, they cheated horribly and were brazen about it.

Solo travel experience

I went to Cambodia in February this year and it is one of my favorite countries. So safe and Cambodian people are some of the nicest, friendliest people in the world. I recommend getting the Grab app, it is their version of Uber and it makes getting around for shorter distances very easy, affordable, and safe. For longer distances, I recommend booking a tuk-tuk driver through your accommodation.

Solo travel experience

I was in Siem Reap for 2 weeks, 5 days in Koh Rong, and a few days in Phnom Penh in June. Loved the island and Siem Reap. Totally safe, and felt safer than major tourist hotspots in the EU, with no snatch thieves or pickpockets. Locals were quite respectful and didn't follow/harass me. Highly recommend.
