Cambodia - Level 1: Exercise Normal Precautions
O E N H U T C

Exercise normal precautions in Cambodia. Some areas have increased risk.  Read the entire Travel Advisory. 

Exercise increased caution in:

  • Phnom Penh due to crime.
  • Very remote areas of Battambang, Banteay Meanchey, Pursat, Siem Reap, Pailin, and Kampong Thom provinces due to land mines.

Read the Safety and Security section on the country information page.

If you decide to travel to Cambodia:

Phnom Penh

Violent crime, such as sexual assault and homicide, is common, sometimes against foreigners. Street crime, particularly phone and bag snatchings, occurs frequently in areas where foreigners gather; resistance can result in injury. 

Do not physically resist any robbery attempt. Use caution when walking or driving at night. 

Battambang, Banteay Meanchey, Pursat, Siem Reap, Pailin, and Kampong Thom provinces

Land mines and unexploded ordnance are found in very remote areas throughout Cambodia, and especially in Battambang, Banteay Meanchey, Pursat, Siem Reap, Pailin, and Kampong Thom provinces.

Do not touch unknown metal objects; instead notify the Cambodia Mine Action Center at 012-800-473/023-995-437. Use a local guide when walking in forested areas or dry rice paddies in these areas.
