Travel safety in Cambodia

How safe is Cambodia? This is a very common question that we’ve received over the period of 10 years of working in tourism of Indochina, the answer is don’t worry, Cambodia is very safe and traveling inside the country from the cities to the rural area will be full of new experience, however, there are some tips that helps you to know the Cambodia better, here we go:
I and my team live and work in Siem Reap and have been travelled extensively throughout the country and we mutually agree that Cambodia it is much safer than many Western cities. The capital city of Cambodia, the Phnom Penh is another story, is much bigger and there are areas where it would not be wise to go after dark – as in many cities in the world.

The Cambodia Culture and social mere

Cambodian culture and traditions are largely shaped by the religion; 95% of the population practices Theravada Buddhism. The other small religions are Islam and the Christianity that is practicing mainly in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

If you haven’t been to Cambodia or Indochina yet, and don’t know where to go and what to see, perhaps you should consider an escorted tour packages Cambodia in order to visit the key attractions and the places that you won’t be able if you travel on your own and you will enjoy a visit of the country’s most intimate and fun and you will have less chance of cultural disappointing.

The concept of “face”, as in many other Asian cultures, even in Cambodia is essential. Belittle the Cambodians would arouse resentment – use of sarcasm and self to defuse a tense situation is far better and common. Cambodia is definitely a place where you have the possibility to learn and live in a more relaxing society, keep smiling and you will get more smile and welcoming by the locals and don’t forget that Cambodia is a country with a strong Buddhist influence, so, dress modest and observe the culture when visiting the temples.

Cambodian are generally very hospitable and welcoming and you will have chance to get invited as a guest in their own house, village, and countryside. Even the poorest Cambodian will likely to share his plate of rice and his glass of water with wealthy foreigners and the fact is they would like to appreciate you for traveling in Cambodia in this way.

The traditional greeting way of Cambodia people called “Sompiah”, a gentle hint of a bow with folded hands on the chest and the tips of the fingers pointing upwards. Many Khmer think that Westerners do not understand this nuance; if you can ask a Khmer to teach you this greeting form then you will be more welcome by the locals, however and nowadays, the Sompiah is not that common in the cities but if you invited to the local house then Sompiah will be the only greeting, so, do not forget to learn how to Sompiah.

How to dress in Cambodia

The Khmer people are modest and tend to dress in clothes that reveal as little as their body. Wear shorts or skirts are quite unusual for Cambodian, but for you as travelers it will be not a problem at all, however, if you visiting the temples and pagodas then try to avoid wearing the short dress and the top tank as this will be considered as irresponsible and impolite, this is like going to church on bikini! Some sites will even refuse admission, normally in those cases there is possibility of renting long dresses, the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh is one of the places that refuse your entrance if you not wearing the modest dress.

Wedding in Khmer culture

If during your stay you should happen to tighten friendships, then it is very likely that you may be invited to a wedding. These colorful and noisy events last 2-3 days (although these days, is now reduced to one and a half). Brides traditionally are used to change clothes several times. Normally these are traditional clothes in different colors. If there is a big wedding then you might be seen thousands of guests and friends who come to celebrate and help the couple to get their marriage life started, among people there are those who will stop longer and some less, and it is customary to leave an envelope with the money before leaving. The Barang (foreigners) during lunch will be asked to drink several times with the married couples. Even if you were not invited you perceive a wedding nearby, especially the loud music and swarms of people walking around the place.

Entertainment in Cambodia

No Papua New Guinea Tour would be complete without visiting Ambua Lodge located at 7000 feet in the Papua New Guinea Southern Highlands. It is a great mix of local architecture, with spectacular views and modest luxury, well off the beaten track.

This area overlooks the Tari valley and is the home of the Huli clan with their human hair wigs.

Ambua Lodge has a formidable award winning reputation for ecological responsible tourism, so if you are an avid supporter of eco lodges, and what they stand for, then this Papua New Guinea vacation will be for you. Situated at the edge of the rainforest at the beginning of the valley grasslands which means an incredible number of birds can be spotted here.

Not only birds because this is one of the few places left anywhere that men and women can be seen wearing their traditional dress as part of their daily lives, and a man’s wealth is determined by the number of wives he has, and the number of pigs he possesses!!

This is a great place for botanists, orchids and bird spotting.

With an altitude of the 7000 feet the surroundings of Ambua Lodge do allow the visitor to discover high altitude rhododendrons and orchids alongside nature trails, vine bridges, and crashing waterfalls.

Ambua Lodge itself is very impressive and it has a main building which is like a large room containing the lounge area, bar, dining area, a central open fireplace which is very necessary as it gets quite cool at this height. There is a separate video room, heated spa and sauna., and outside there is garden furniture where you can sit and enjoy the wonderful views of the valley below.

The forty individual round cottages all have 180 degree picture windows, and include electric blankets and continental quilts, again for the cool evenings. The accommodation units are simply furnished without being luxurious by international standards.

You will get there either by chartered aircraft landing at the lodge airstrip or by scheduled flight followed by a ninety minute drive.

The meals are very acceptable, and the menu is sufficiently international to cover most tastes. You will find everything from spaghetti, through roast beef, to chicken curry with the normal vegetables. Breakfasts will include the normal cereals, fruit juices, toast, eggs bacon etc. Lunch is either packed picnic style or a small meal, and dinner is the standard three courses. Afternoon tea is also served.

The main reason for taking a Papua New Guinea tour and particularly the Ambua Lodge Hotel is for the tours. This can be bird watching, people watching, orchid searching. It is normal to go out early at 6am on a bird watching trip, but the main tour of the day will involve Huli village visits, and see ‘performances’, but perhaps also be able to try your hand with traditional bow and arrows. These trips are quite phenomenal, a chance to see a way of life that is fast disappearing.

All in all Ambua Lodge is a must visit for at least three nights on your Papua New Guinea package tour. It is rarely full to capacity, and you will meet nice like minded people.
