Tips to visit Cambodia:
1.  Said No to corruption in airport when you arrived (in Thailand also)

2. In Cambodia, US dollar is accepted but do remember if the notes are worn or teared... (as long as it looks not perfect), they wont accept the notes especially for $20, $50, $100, those big amount notes. Don't worry, you can change those 'imperfect' notes with the bank (CIMB is free of charges to change the notes).

3. Bring long pants or pants length which can cover your knees, sleeveless top is also not allowed when visit temple and some other places.

4. Bargain every time when you buy things in market

5. Seek advice from your guesthouse (price of tuktuk, places to visit...), map with you always.

6. Take care of your belonging always

7. The traffic is chaos, watch out when you walk and cross the road, especially when u riding bicycle

8. Prepare all things daily necessities you needed, you can buy at there also but it's hard to find certain brand of product that you might looking for.

9. Avoid tap water and drink bottle water, you need to drink a lots of water because the weather is very hot there (check the weather forecast before you book the flight)

10. Do more research before you go. Tripadvisor, lonely planet are highly recommended!
