Inquiry Submission By JustJessPerth
For those not aware it is absolutely illegal for any foreigner to hire a scooter at any location in Cambodia. For 50 weeks of the year it’s not really an issue, but as per others posts in previous years there is a crack down over the Khmer New Year in the major tourist hotspots. I have seen 6 bikes confiscated by police (mix of Green and Blue Uniforms) in Siem Reap overnight a block from “Pub Street” and 2 days ago 4 confiscated on the main road along the river in Battambang by police in Blue uniforms.
If you rent a scooter, and it gets confiscated then more fool you
