Never trust the zebra crossing. Should be stamped on the tourist visa. I always hesitate to stop for pedestrians as I've been hit from behind by idiots going too fast or on their phone.

When crossing at a pedestrian crossing, flip your phone/ camera onto video record and point it at the traffic coming towards you . Most, but not all will stop.
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.

Suddenly, a Scoopy motorbike driven by a Cambodian women at high speed hit a foreigner woman, causing both of them (motorbike driver and a foreigner) to get seriously injured; they were both taken to hospital immediately.
