Cambodia: FCO warns of sexual assaults in tourist area

The UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office has updated its travel advice for Cambodia to warn women to take care and exercise caution when travelling in the tourist resort of Siem Reap.

It says this year there have been several cases of lone women being sexually assaulted by men claiming to be motorbike taxi drivers in the Pub street area of the resort, which is a gateway to the ruins of Angkor.

Travellers are advised to remain vigilant at all times, and travel in groups when possible.
