Siem Reap Warnings and Dangers: 9 reviews and 18 photos


Always be aware of your handbag, backpacks, cameras, mobile phones etc.

Especially if you are travelling in a cyclo, hold on to your belongings tightly, wrap you handbag strap a couple of times around your wrist.

If a bike pulls up alongside you with 2 guys on it, chances are the passenger is checking out what you have he can easily grab.

We met a lady who on her first day in Phnom Penh was warned about this but obviously took no notice. Her bag was snatched, she had over $1,000. her camera documents etc in it. DONT CARRY large amounts of money with you.

This warning applys really to wherever you are, I take care with all my belongings whether I am overseas or at home as it can happen anywhere.
