Cambodia - A country that runs on Bikes !

Cambodia is literally running on bikes, locally called moto. Whenever you find yourself in Cambodia, you'll find a lot of bikes running around the road. In Phnom Penh, you will find a lot of bike showrooms and service centers and parking lots.

The popular way to commute in Cambodia is Tuk-Tuk and these Tuk-tuks are pulled by none other than bikes. The bike is the vehicle that pulls the main cart which can accommodate 4-6 folks.

In Siem Reap, you can find roadside kiosks selling cocktails and most of these are attached to a bike which takes these kiosks to different places. And the same logic applies to a lot of other kiosks as well.

In Cambodia, we realized that a lot of automobile companies are producing some special models of bikes and they are used for specific purposes. Honda is one of the popular brands of bikes in Cambodia.

Vibha was working on a project in Cambodia, and she shared that most of the employees of the organization she was working with commute on bikes. Bikes indeed seem to be lifelines of the country. They were ubiquitous, especially in the cities. Bikes are the vehicle of choice for both men and women. They are so common that they are part of Cambodian Caricatures.

However, bikers in Cambodia are much more disciplined. You don't see them zipping around dangerously, though you would often see them overloaded and carrying things dangerously. But they stop to make way for you. Don't climb over pavements and don't drive on the wrong side. Guess our bikers can learn a lot for Cambodian bikers.
