Visiting Prey Sar Prison

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.

This was at the new Preah Sihanouk provincial prison, but I didn't need any ID whatsoever I had to sign a sheet and then 5000 riel. Didn't have to pay for face to face time though.
Did you see Sun Visor Huw when you were there?

What’s the “white forest” connection?

There was probably a white forest there about 100 years ago. Loads of places are named after lakes/ forests etc which no longer exist, like Prey Veng province ( Long Forest), where there is barely a tree standing these days.

As of February 2018, at least, visitors were only allowed into CC1 (the men's half of Prey Sar) on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, starting at 8:00 a.m. Only NGOs and embassy staff are allowed in on the other days.

That was also where Snow White lived 100 years ago. I read about it on tof.
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.
