"Mines and bombs" Khett Siem Reab Warnings Or Dangers Tip by trisanna

Khett Siem Reab Warnings and Dangers: 45 reviews and 49 photos

Cambodia is a heavily mined and bombed country. Now the country is in a peaceful state, but these unexploded ordinances or UXO are still causing harm. These UXO take the shape of unused bombs, cluster bomblets, artillery and mortar shells, landmines, rockets, grenades, etc.

Cambodian and foriegn agencies are clearing the land looking for UXO, but it will take decades to fully clear the land. As of now, it's really unsafe for you to walk or go trekking in areas that aren't a well worn path. Areas that have not be cleared are usually marked with a red skull and bones symbol. Be cautious and careful. Also, it's important not to buy unused weapons from vendors. You would be amazed that people do sell this stuff.
