Default Re: Cambodia - Khmer New Year

Sure I'm serious! I protected my Canon EOS 50E SLR from the Water Festival in Bangkok with a plastic bag like this!

Steung Meanchey is no problem to visit. When you say a street near the lake, I guess you mean Bouung Kak lake - that's a district of very cheap guesthouses and also of very cheap brothels. The brothels don't like cameras - because some of the girls are very young. So it could be dangerous. Be careful.

You might like to take the train trip from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville - it takes all day, and is a major expedition (take your own food and water), but lots of good people-shots.
