Health & safety

While Cambodia is much safer than it was even ten years ago, the region is known for its political instability and widespread poverty contributes to high levels of disease. When traveling in Cambodia, take extra precautions at night, in nightclubs and in remote areas. Although most areas are safe to explore, more remote areas may still have landmines buried. Be sure to hire an experienced guide if you are venturing off the beaten path.

Be aware of the sources of your food and water, especially if you're eating street food. Poor food hygiene can lead to worms, intestinal parasites, giardia, dysentery, cholera and salmonella. Be sure to pack some bug spray as well, as mosquitos in Cambodia are known to carry malaria, dengue fever and Japanese encephalitis. Finally, HIV/AIDS is a widespread problem in Cambodia, avoid blood-contamination and practice safe habits while in the country.

Medical facilities in Cambodia are generally smaller and more scaled-back than those in western countries. Travel medical insurance with coverage for medical evacuations is highly recommended for any travelers to Cambodia.
