Know your capabilities. Know your limits. Know the market.
What do you want it for?

If it's around town - swallow your pride and get a small scooter. If it's off roading in the provinces - it's a dirt bike.

If you are going for a popular item like an AX-1 or a small scooter- expect that it will be stolen. Reason is these are closer to the ground than the slightly larger other off road motorbikes.

At Om Tuk, all people, of all ages, from all provinces across the Kingdom descend upon Phnom Penh.

Okay, with your guide to stupidity ruling the roost, what does the family ride?

Well, like most of Phnom Penh, the Child-bride's first bike was a Daelim Citi 100. But not just any Citi, this was a Chosen Ilbo. Any Korean speakers out there want to tell me what that means? It was bought off a mate so he'd have some cash to return to the UK with and was sold when we needed some cash for the baby's clinic bills (Luckily all of yours truly's bikes were already in varying states of disassembly and therefore unsaleable!) It was a semi-auto 4-speed with a front drum brake and a motodop's oblong seat, like every other Daelim.

Dengue fever hitting record highs

For Cambodians, dengue fever is a serious childhood disease, although, if they survive, most will have been exposed to all four strains of the virus by adulthood and have developed some degree of immunity. For most foreigners the mosquito-borne disease remains a risk throughout life. Because there are so many strains, a previous infection with the virus does not guarantee immunity and in some cases a second infection with a different strain can prove more serious than the first.
