|Train travel is considered as safe, but check on the current situation before you take. Trains are very slow, crowded and hot, however they are a very cheap and friendly way to travel. Arrive early to get a seat. Many food sellers. Until recently, the train travel in Cambodia has had a reputation for being very dangerous. This is no longer the case though there has been an isolated incident of banditry within recent months.
