Scammers on the increase in SR

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

affirm, they won't, it has to do with religious forgiveness and the fact that hippies don't steal :thumb:

Hey, that one dollar you save in the dorm is two happy hour drafts! Funny thing is most backpackers and people like 2krp actually lose more money (ie. by way of theft) over a trip than if they had stayed in a decent private room. Don't expect them to understand that though.

The correct answer to that is not 'today' or 'yesterday'. Those answers just mean to moto dops, tuk tuk drivers and bar girls, that you are ripe for the pickings.

Reply with "Dop ch'num howie". Then keep walking and don't make eye contact. No further problems. :thumb:
And never tell them when you're leaving because they take that as an appointment to drive you to the airport.

also understood as the last possible date for you to get robbed. Mostly done asap, before someone else beat them to it.

Well I will have to admit, I know one dirty old bastard that likes to stay in mixed dorm rooms even when he can afford a aircon room.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
