Inquiry Submission By YianSingapore
As a frequent traveller, I feel the urge to share this.
Snatch theft and robbery while travelling on local transportation is RAMPANT in Cambodia. Even the locals are not spared.
If you are sitting inside the local rickshaw or Tuk Tuk, put your phone away and hang on tight to your bag.
My fellow countrywoman was robbed twice, both on public transport. My local friend, her iphone was snatched. I hear about a lady?s bag was snatched while she was cycling; she fell to the ground and was injured.
I travel frequently to cambodia in the last 2 years, the robbery rate seems to have gone up. Please stay vigilant and remember to purchase your travel insurance.
