Keeping Healthy
If you fall sick during your stay, try to see a doctor rather than visit a hospital. If it is a very serious incident, a medivac to Bangkok may be required. Pharmacies in urban centres are generally well stocked and prescriptions aren’t necessary for most antibiotics. Prices are very reasonable, but do check the expiry date, as some medicine may have expired.

There’s no need to be paranoid. While there are quite a lot of tropical diseases out there, the most common ailments to affect visitors to Cambodia are simple things like an upset stomach or a spot of dehydration. Avoiding tap water and drinking lots of bottled water is a good first step towards a healthy trip. Ice is generally considered safe, as it is mostly produced in factories.

It is very important to have a well covered medical insurance. Hospitals in Ratanakiri or other rural areas are very poor equipped and below all hygienic standards. The medical skills of the staff not even mentioned. In case of a medical event, you need to get to Phnom Penh or Siem Reap asap. The International SOS clinic in Phnom Penh and some clinics in Siem Reap are good ones.
