“Attacked Me”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2005

Do not, under any circumstances use Happy Travel, their internet café or stay in their attached hostel (Happy Guesthouse and Restaurant) in the Boengkak lake area of Phnom Penh . Without exception while in Cambodia, I found the people to be wonderful and very friendly and I always felt relatively safe. Happy Travel was the one exception. I visited them and inquired about hiring a minibus to take me and a group to the south of the country; I returned several minutes later and told the owner that we did not need to the minibus, but the staff refused to contact him. When he finally emerged, he demanded 45 USD for his troubles and when I refused to pay, he blocked the road with a group of his staff, followed me to my hostel and threatened to "break my eye and face" until I paid him. I eventually did, as he was, by Cambodian standards, a hulking guy.

Most people in Cambodia are wonderful and kind and so are many businesses. Do yourself a favor and don't stay here!
