9 “Myths” about Cambodia that you should forget on your trip to it!

| |

Many do not know the truth of Cambodia as a distinctive tourist country with a picturesque nature and landmarks worth visiting, and some may think that Cambodia is a country still suffering from the effects of war, poverty and danger. But this is just “myths” that continue over time. Cambodia is constantly evolving at an accelerated pace, which makes visitors to it for the first time surprised by the tourist secrets it provides them. Today we will try to get rid of 9 erroneous myths about Cambodia that you should forget on your trip to it.

“Cambodia dangerous”

Error. Cambodia is not a dangerous country. It is that simple and the numbers confirm that. Crime rates are low in the country as well as the use of weapons. As for the safety measures, they are the same anywhere in the world. It is normal that you do not go out alone at night or take a warning about the theft and so on … So there is no need to think too much about the issue of safety and security, as what applies to Cambodia applies to many countries of the world.

“Mine scattered”

Many fear the presence of mines as a result of the war in Cambodia. This is true, but what we must know is that many efforts have been made over the decades to get rid of them as millions of mines have been dismantled. More importantly, residential areas have been completely demined and have become safe, and there is a goal to remove all mines from all parts of the country by 2025.

“Do not visit Cambodia in the rainy season”

On the contrary, many assert that this is the most beautiful season in Cambodia, where you will see nature at its finest: green and flowering. It is true that rain is a possibility, but it does not happen suddenly, as is common, as you will get an alarm until clouds accumulate and the rain starts about 30 minutes ago … While many consider these thunderstorms an attraction in themselves as they are beautiful and take dazzling forms in the nature.

“You will be exposed to food poisoning”

Cambodia is not a unique case! The key to not being food poisoned is the same all over the world, and this can be avoided with a few logical behaviors. Do not drink water from the tap and look carefully at the street where you buy food to know the level of hygiene there, and eat from places where the locals eat foods and you will be completely safe.

Street Children

You will notice when you visit Cambodia, as is the case in many countries of the world, street children who ask you for money, but if you give them that, you will not help them but they are victims of gangs that you exploit and get their money. The best solution is to avoid giving them money so that you do not contribute more to the episode. Cambodia is conducting several campaigns to reduce this phenomenon.

“Cambodia is not family friendly”

There is a rumor that Cambodia is not family friendly and there are no activities to entertain children. But that is totally wrong. Cambodia is one of the countries that cares most about families, so there is a lot of activities and there is no imminent danger about children catching viruses and you will not face a problem in that.

“Bad infrastructure”

Cambodia’s infrastructure has developed a lot in recent years. Roads are generally good. Trips to the country are increasing. There are many new and modern hotels, restaurants, malls and other high-speed landmarks. As for the Internet, the service is excellent.

“Poverty is a General State”

It is true that poverty is a real problem in Cambodia, but recent years have seen the emergence of a middle class, the Cambodian economy is in constant improvement.

“No luxury”

If you are looking for luxury, expect to find what suits you best in Cambodia. The kingdom is full of boutique and 5-star hotels that you can find, especially in the capital Phnom Penh and the city of Siem Reap. On the beach there are special islands for those looking for luxury, especially Song Saa and others …
