Tuk tuk and moped survival 101

The easiest way to get around Phnom Penh is by tuk tuk. Picture a small carriage pulled by a moped. It can be quite a harrowing experience. Traffic in this city is madness. There's no rhyme or reason to the way people drive here and no rules on how many people you can squeeze onto a vehicle. We've seen cars driving on the opposite side of the road onto oncoming traffic and mopeds with 3 peoples squeezed on a seat back. Sometimes even inches away of nicking each other. I recommend these cardinal rule: keep your hands and feets close to your body, hang on for dear life and bring sunglasses to protect your eyes from the dust.
