Car and Truck Guide to Cambodia

Postby Cambodia Motor Guide » Mon Feb 15, 2016 11:48 am

Welcome to Cambodia Motor Guide, CMG

Image

This thread is an ongoing project thread designed to help anyone (both Khmer and Expatriate alike) with any question they may have regarding car or truck usage in Cambodia.

Any topic, from simple maintenance to advanced mechanics may be addressed, as there are a diverse group of people living in the kingdom.

If you have any questions you would like address, please post in the car and bike section, or PM me at (username: AE86) with your question.

Thank you, and happy motoring
