SIM CARDS:  

With a good variety of cell phone providers in Cambodia, the competition is good and relatively effortless for travelers to buy a sim and pop it into their unlocked cell phones.  The Cambodian cell companies are: Cellcard/Mobitel, Metfone, Smart, qb, Beeline, CooTel and Excell.  To purchase a SIM card, just bring a passport with a valid visa to the office.  At Cellcard, SIMs cost $2 and you’re required to add at least $1 in credit when you purchase one to activate it. In-network calls cost 5 to 7 cents per minute and it’s 8 cents per minute for cross-network calls. International calls cost 20 cents per minute, or as low as 4.5 cents a minute if you dial 177 before the country code.  *SOURCE - Move to Cambodia Blog*


PUBLIC TRANSPORT:

There is no real public transit system in place, so within the district you are in, your best method of moving around is with Tuk Tuk drivers, taxis (agree on the fee before going), or motor bikes, or rent your own scooter.

​​Here is a link to some inter-provincial and cross border bus companies with schedules:

  1. ​ Mekong Express: operates daily schedule, services to major destinations in Cambodia and also cross border service to Vietnam.
  2. ​​Giant Ibis: Destinations;  Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Kampot, Sihanoukville, Ho Chi Minh City
  3. Phnom Penh Sorya Transportation: Service for buses to all 24 provinces and VN, Loa, Bangkok.
  4. CANBY Guide, a good overall guide to local and international bus companies and routes.


CULTURE & ETIQUETTE TIPS:

  • ​The head is considered the highest and most spiritual part of a person's body. The feet are considered the dirtiest and least sacred.
  • Never touch a Cambodian person on the head, even children.  Never raise your feet higher than someone's head.  When seated on the ground, tuck your feet beneath you so that they do not point at someone.  Unless told otherwise, always remove your shoes before entering a home or business.  Do not use your left hand to touch, eat, or hand someone something.
  • ​Traditional Cambodian greeting - known as Som Pas - is made by putting your two hands together (with fingertips near the chin) and a giving a slight bow with your head. The hands are held higher to show more respect to elders and monks.
  • ​Cambodians are conservative in sexuality and strongly frown upon public displays of affection.
  • Women should never touch a monk or hand anything to them.
  • ​Remove shoes and hats before entering the worship area - no one is exempt.
  • ​Avoid sitting higher than seated monks.
  • ​​Always wait for the eldest to sit. The same applies to when to begin eating.
