There are many people in Cambodia for the first time, who do things that others may say is stupid. They have come from a place where this type of crime is not common, and dont expect it.

Every guesthouse, hostel, hotel etc needs a sign that reads

'Leave your passport and cards somewhere safe at your accommodation

Take only enough money that you can afford to lose'
Keep your money in your socks and fuck, and get massaged, with your socks on

This.

Uwotm8, it's pretty fucking stupid. I guess age might have been the factor here but still.

I'm not quite sure what definition you're talking about but I imagine a lot of stupid people do visit this place as generally speaking, people aren't the smartest. Especially when it concerns foreign lands.

Thumbs up for the lady for riding a bicycle with 71 years of age. To be honest you don't expect it in battambang but just leave all that shit in your room while cycling around and you'll be fine.

It's no big deal riding a bike at 71 years of age. It's just a big deal if you fall off. Any one can do it.
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.

France is a hotbed of this type of crime mostly by high numbers of unemployed youth and illegal migrants who cannot work. I find it inconceivable that anyone from there could not be aware
