The easiest way to get around in Cambodia is on a motorbike. You’re travelling with a group of friends. Should you all fit on the same moto dup (Cambodian motorbike taxi) or hail separate rides?
Despite its typically audacious old school Khmer name (Siem Reap means victory over the Siamese), Siem Reap is a rather sedate provincial settlement. As you arrive in Siem Reap, notice the slower pace (it gets a lot slower in the countryside surrounding the city).
If there is one expression you should learn, it is Sok Sabay, which is used to greet people, ask how they fare, bid goodbye. Literally Sok means peace and Sabay means happiness.
