  Cambodia FAQ

Below are some of the more frequently asked questions (FAQ) about travelling to Cambodia. While efforts are made to address the most frequently asked questions, should you have any queries not covered herein below, please send an email to concerns@tourismcambodia.org

  On Accommodation

Is Cambodia a safe country to visit?

Although Cambodia has suffered years of atrocities, since 1975 the country has returned to become the peaceful state it now is.  Foreigners are often misled by news about landmines and fighting, but these are all things of the past.  There are a few remote areas near the borders where troops are still working on clearing landmines left behind during the war, but for the most part, Cambodia is safe.


Should I bargain for everything I wish to buy in Cambodia?

Not necessarily. If an item carries a price tag, you're not expected to bargain. You are not expected to bargain at a restaurant either.  However, it’s only human to wish for a better deal and it is expected of tourists to do so at markets and tourist sites. A little friendly negotiation can sometimes make buying more fun.

  Cost of Visiting

How much should I budget per day for a vacation in Cambodia?

Depending on your accommodation and itinerary, budget anywhere from $10-$50 per day. In Phnom Penh, you can rent a room in a guesthouse for as little as $5 a night; in more remote areas, a basic room in a guesthouse might be half that price. 

A plate of fried rice or noodles will only put you back by another $1, and transportation by tuk-tuk or moto will usually only be $1-$2 per trip.


  Food & Beverages Concerns

Can I drink directly from the tap in Cambodia?

No; generally, it's not a good idea. If you have to drink from the tap, do make sure that you boil the water before consuming it. Bottled water is relatively inexpensive in Cambodia.
