Cambodia Angkor roots

Cambodia for All!

By writing “Cambodia for all” we refer to now but we cannot forget that not many years ago Cambodia went through a horrendous period of violence and immense suffering

During the Khmer Rouge regime, in less than 5 years, 25% of the population was exterminated either directly or because of the enormous difficulties that followed this monstrous example of genocide.
2 million Cambodians disappeared under the Pol Pot dictatorship between 1975 and 1979.

The consequences are still seen today with about 20% of the population having mobility problems due to accidents with mines and other remnants of the terrifying period of wars that devastated Indochina.

Cambodia for All! Accessible tuk-tuk

Cambodia: Accessible motorbike in Siem Reap

“Cambodia for All” is the motto, but the general accessibility of Cambodia is very poor.

This limit exists both in the capital, Phnom Penh, and in the main tourist attraction, the archaeological complex of Angkor near Siem Reap.

Transport accessibility is very poor.
Only people using manual wheelchairs, who are able to move in the seat of a sedan, can travel smoothly in Cambodia.

However, with the support of international NGOs, the first attempts are being made to provide adequate services even to those who must remain seated in wheelchairs even during transfers.

As you can see from the photo, the situation is changing and accessible transport is born in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

Some hotels in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap (near which Angkor is located) have accessible rooms.

It is possible to have medical, nursing, personal and tourist assistance.

In Siem Reap, manual, fixed, hospital-type wheelchairs can be rented.

In short, Cambodia for now is only recommended for adventurous people, ready to deal with limited accessibility.
