Hey Guys! Phoebe here,
from Little Grey Box

Are you planning a trip to Cambodia?
If you are planning your first
ever trip to Cambodia

There are a few things that I think
you really need to know before you go

Don't buy from local children
or give them money or food

It may sound harsh, but hear me out
With their beautiful smiling faces looking up at you
It can be really hard to resist buying trinkets
or souvenirs from local kids
who will run up to you outside

of temples and the like
When they get food or money from tourists
It devalues an education, and the kids,
their parents, or the people they work for

might see it as more viable for them to keep
working over tourists than to go to school
The Cambodian Government openly agrees
and they would encourage travellers
who want to do good

to donate to charity organisations
and local schools instead

You'll need a mix of currencies
It's time to get real
No, I'm not just being cool and hip like one of the kids
Riel is the Cambodian currency
that said, you are really going to need
US Dollars more than Riel

For anything that costs more than a dollar
you'll be paying in US Dollars

For anything that you get in change below that
you'll get it back in Riel
When you are getting money back
Check it thoroughly, as counterfeiting is
alive and well in Cambodia

They're funny about bills though
No, if you're names not Bill
you're not going to get in trouble

Dad joke
But if you do get a note with a rip or tear it
you may find that they don't accept it

We had some real trouble getting local vendors
to take a note that had the slightest tear

or the slightest infraction in it
That just wouldn't take it off us

So when you are getting money back
Be confident, give it back
and say that you want a clean crisp bill
A little Khmer goes a long way
Khmer is the name of the Cambodian language
and if you pick up a few local words
it's going to go a long way to
being a good human and a good traveller

here are a few to get you started
Hello
sous-dey
sounds like...
sewer snake
Thank you
orkun
sounds like...
all good
Sorry
somm toh
sounds like...
Soz dude
Don't ride the elephants
The reality is, the way that
an elephant is broken in

to be able to be ridden by tourists
is really harsh
It's a process called crushing
It really is worth researching it
so that you can understand the
problem yourself

a quick Google search for
elephant crushing

or having a look on YouTube will show
you a few videos

and a few articles
that i think will encourage you
not to do it

I didn't know, now I do
and I'm really glad I do

You can't drink the tap water
While we are all trying to cut down
on single-use plastics

unfortunately, in Cambodia
you can't take your water bottle
and refill it from your hotel tap

What you can do though
is stock up on a few really big bottles
that way you're not using single small bottles
and you're still drinking safe clean water
Tuk Tuk is the way to get around
When you're in places like Phomn Penh
and Siem Reap

honestly the best way to get around is by
hailing yourself a tuk tuk

and if you're staying in a hotel
you'll find tuk tuk's lined up outside
ready to take you where you want to go

a 5 minute tuk tuk ride should cost you
around USD$1

and you need to negotiate before
you get in the tuk tuk

or when you get out you're gonna
have a problem

Pro Tip: Always have the business card of the
hotel you are staying at with you

so you can show it to the driver
so that he knows exactly where you
are going and the address

Beware the food scam
If you are in places like Phomn Penh
and Siem Reap

you may be approached by a
beautiful girl

on the streets of Cambodia telling
you that she is really really hungry

and she doesn't want your money
all she wants is a meal
and could you just take her to
a local restaurant

and give her something to eat
Seems reasonable right?
No! it is not reasonable, it's a trap!
Wake up to yourselves internet!
What will really happen is you will sit down
and you will order food for yourself and her

and then at the end of the meal
you will be hit with a huge bill

Being a tourist and in a tough situation
you are going to have no choice but to pay it
To avoid falling victim to this scam
be aware of it
and when a young girl approaches you
simply say no, and walk away.

Beware the baby milk scam
There is another scam
and it has a similar tone
a young woman with a baby in her arms
will ask you if you can please help her out
by buying some formula for her tiny little baby
it's so hard to say no but you have to
If you don't, you will be taken to a
suspiciously close mini-mart

Where you will spend USD$20-$30
on a tin of baby formula
After you leave
the young woman will return the formula to the store
and she and the store owner will
split the profits

of your US dollars
It's important to say no
not just so that you aren't the victim
but so it puts an end to scams like this
and young women and children being
exploited for the profit of organised crime

To enter Cambodia you are going to need a visa
You can do that before you go
to make things a little bit easier
or if you are on the fly
just sort it out when you arrive
If you do plan to get your visa on arrival
make sure you have a spare passport photo
or a least a few with you
and you should check the visa requirements
because some ASEAN countries
don't require one at all

Prepare for some questionable toilets
Oh the things I have seen
and the toilets I have hovered over
Cambodia is no exception
Always have pocket tissues with you
some wet wipes and some hand sanitiser
just in case
English is widely spoken
Hey, if you don't speak Khmer
If your Cambodian language skills
aren't quite up to scratch

No need to panic
You will have no trouble
Ordering at restaurants, hailing a tuk tuk
and sorting out your accommodation at hotels
You need to be mindful around monks
In Cambodian culture, monks are not only revered,
they are very well respected
and it's important to be a good traveller
and a good human and observe these
cultural respects yourself

Woman in particular need to be mindful
You shouldn't ever touch them or
sit too close to them

And it's always important to ask if you can take a photo
before you do
You may find that they say no
But you may find they say yes!
Bag snatching in Phomn Penh is a real thing
Ohh, yes
I took a tuk tuk ride and my tuk tuk
driver was terrified for my safety

He made me strap my backpack to my body
and sealed me inside the tuk tuk
with all the flaps down so nobody could see me

So when you are out and about
Whether it's on foot or in a tuk tuk
please make sure
your bag is secured to your body
with those fidgety little nerdy straps
that the backpack companies give you
If you don't have a bag
that can be secured to your body

and sealed shut
You need to get a new one before you go
You may need sunglasses and a face mask
Why you ask?
I'm gonna tell you why Internet
When you are wizzing around on tuk tuks
and on the back of scooters

and all that kind of open air transport
that they have in Cambodia

There's a lot of dust on the roads and that can
fly up and get right into your eyes

And the pollution is quite real
Especially in Siem Reap and Phomn Penh
It's cheap and easy to get your hands on a SIM card
Because I'm always on social media for my work
I had to get a SIM card when I arrived
and I was a little concerned
about how much it would cost in Cambodia

Turns out it's dirt cheap
I did have to hand in my passport to get it
So if you are a little bit worried about identity theft
Be sure to keep a close eye on the
person working there

and maybe just give them your
husband's instead of yours

or your friends, whatever
You're going to need a few temple outfits
When you are visiting places like
Angkor Wat, the Grand Palace

and other sites where temple kind of
vibes are involved

You're going to need specific temple outfits
This means your shoulders need to be covered
Your knees need to be covered
No midriffs, no deep plunging neck lines
and you guys, a scarf isn't going to cut it
So your best bet is to pack two temple outfits
Some t-shirts or shirts that cover
your shoulders and your waist

Skirts that go below the knees will cut it
If you visit Siem Reap you are going
to need a temple pass

If you are thinking I might just risk it
and I don't really need one
you would be wrong because at each temple
they have people standing there who check

your pass to make sure that you not only have it
but to make sure its valid
The Internet ain't great
Oh this was a hard one for me
because I Iive for the Internet

and I run my business on the internet
Everywhere I went, regardless of the quality of the hotel
or the cafe, the internet just
wasn't that great unfortunately

so if you are a freelancer,
or you do plan on working online

keep this in mind because you will
be slowed down a little bit

You should pack an umbrella
It rains! Spontaneously
when you least expect it
and you may just end up buying an umbrella
from a very cute kid on the side of the road

no, no , no
Avoid that by packing a little day umbrella with you
in your daypack every day you go out

It is incredibly hot and humid in Cambodia
and I come from a really hot place on Earth
Brisbane
There were times when I would leave a place
and I would be soaked through my t-shirts
so you might want to put one or
two extras t-shirts in your bag

if that kind of thing is going to bother you
You might want to also get up and do most of your exploring either early in the morning
or late in the afternoon so you avoid those
hottest parts of the day

drink plenty of water
stay hydrated, and
wear sweat wicking if it so suits you
The mosquitos are very hungry
The mosquitos in Cambodia are no joke
and if you are worried about
any mosquito borne illnesses

be sure to see a doctor before you go
but also

pack some mosquito repellant in your bag
and be sure to put it on every day
They really do eat bugs and spiders
There's a good chance you've seen
fried tarantulas and bugs and spiders
of all shapes and sizes

for sale at markets
and you're probably thinking
hey, that's just for tourists

Yes, it is for tourists but,
they do actually really eat them

I was shocked to learn that
So, if you do see a local munging down on tarantula
don't be terrified, join in!
Prepare to fall in love with the people of Cambodia
It's just an incredibly special place
and, one that is close to my heart
my little sister is Cambodian
and... I love Cambodian people
they are so warm and genuine
they have the most incredible smiles
and kind eyes
They have a great sense of humour
and they are fantastic to talk to
Thank you so much for watching
