Inquiry Submission By Stiene V

Ciao fellow travellers, we’re going to Cambodia next August (yes I know, it’s rainy season) and we want do hire a car and drive ourselves. I’ve been in Cambodia before but this time I’m taking my 3 and 5-year olds. We’re used to driving ourselves around the world, my husband is a very self-confident and experienced driver so I’m not so much concerned about the roads and the driving itself but I would like to know if there is someone out there who has done it. I’m under the impression that Cambodians – understandably – prefer tourists to hire local drivers instead of driving themselves. I was told that in Siem Reap foreigners cannot drive at all. And to drive in other parts you should get a local drivers permit, which is possible. So, anyone? ­čÖé Thank you.
