Spotted hippy hitch hikers

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.

Were they young? Maybe they are hitching around Cambodia, or trying to.
I remember hitching around Europe for a long summer in the 80s, probably thought I was "king of the road" or something, probably came across as a bit of a twat though.

I don't see the issue. I used to hitch around a lot when I was a teenager and then quite a bit later too. There are places where there is no public transport and it's perfectly acceptable to hitch and pay for the service, I've done this in Zambia, Nepal and other places. I bet quite a few locals would pick them up just for the fun of having a foreigner to chat to.

Some people hitchhike as a way of meeting new people too.
