Heightened political tensions in Cambodia

Political tensions in Cambodia are heightened due to an opposition leader being summoned to face trial in court on September 9, 2016. The opposition party has called for protests in Phnom Penh beginning September 5.

Advice For Travellers

Travellers should expect transportation disruption due to demonstrations this week and perhaps longer. Also authorities have blocked roads near the opposition party headquarters at 576 National Route 2. To minimize safety risk, avoid the areas of large public gatherings, rallies or demonstrations. Peaceful situations can quickly and unexpectedly escalate and become violent.
