Two Tourists Attack Tuk-Tuk Driver Because He Is Unable to Find Ladyboys for Them in Phnom Penh

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

This story has still been going kinda viral on social media for over a day straight now. And still we don't even know who they are our their nationalities.

How would the average tuk tuk driver even know about the place?
Maybe he could have tried asking a tuk tuk driver? :facepalm: . They are always advertising stuff like drugs, young girls and ladyboys.
Until you get in, then the drugs turn to detergent, the young girls turn into old women and the ladboys are nowhere to be found. :cya:
Looks like they had an argument over the fare more than ladyboys. The two tourists must have got fed up with the guy changing the agreed price and not negotiating, and tried to just walk away.Maybe the tuk tuk driver got violent and grabbed at the drunk guys shirt and ripped it. I expect he turned around and gave him a slap. Who knows?
I do think there is a 99% likelihood of it being over money as opposed to ladyboys though.
I think the tuk tuk driver was trying to shame them. Which is NOT COOL.

Definitely the dude in the white shirt, but I couldn't hear his boyfriend in the black shirt say anything.

You are talking about some of the drivers who ply their trade around the riverside and 136/ 104/ 51. That's a tiny part of the city. The vast majority of tuk tuk drivers work outside those areas and wouldn't know about or encourage any of those things. The worst they'd do is overcharge you. If you can't speak even rudimentary Khmer or where you are going there's fuck all chance you'll get any of those things through them.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

You're dead right on that. Many people here only hang around tourist areas and assume the whole city is like what they encounter.
