    Cambo NY - batshit crazy as Songkran?

    Flying into PP on the 15th (Wed), then getting a private taxi down to Sihanoukville.

    It's Cambo NY, and I'm wondering if they get blind drunk and drive like maniacs, as per a fair percentage of Thais around this time?

    It's a pretty scary road at the best of times, but add in new year (drunk fucknuckles) and 2/3rds of the trip (2 hours) after dark, I'm wondering if this could be my last road trip...

    And do the Cambo's go full retard with the water like their neighbouring brethren?

    New Year in Cambo is pretty low key (PP is like a ghost town with everyone heading back to their villages) and most Cambodians drive pretty crazy no matter the time of year. You might get a bit of the water stuff in Sihanoukville with the tourists around, but there's no comparison to the chaos that takes place in Thailand.

    Somewhat akin to Laos, yet the Lao are quickly resembling the Thai shenanigans during Songkran.

    They certainly don't mind jacking their prices.

    All guest houses and hotels have doubled their room rates.

    Wonder if the taxis will do the same..
