Cambodia holiday? These days Cambodia is a relatively safe country by world standards. Usual common sense precautions are advisable, especially in Phnom Penh. Avoid poorly lit streets at night and take taxis rather than cyclos. Always keep a photocopy of your passport, airline tickets and credit card numbers, and a detailed record of your traveler's checks. You should leave valuables in hotel safety deposit boxes wherever possible. In Phnom Penh in particular, we recommend you wear as little jewelry as possible and keep your spending money close to your body in a secure place when out on the street.

To assist in finding your way back to your hotel, make sure you obtain a hotel address card, to show the driver where you want to go.
