I would first like to state that I only went to The RiverGarden for a swim. I went with my partner and two friends, 1 german and 1 female khmer. We bought some drinks from the lovely staff at the pool side bar and went for a swim. We had bought a couple of drinks and had been swimming fpr around 30 mins to an hour when an older white gentleman (I use that term lightly) told our female khmer friend she would have to leave. Why you may ask? Because she was wearing a bra under a swim shirt (rashie as some people know it) and a pair of boardshorts. When I asked the man what the problem was he said we have a sign in both english and khmer stating no shirts or shorts, only swim wear and that wearing underware under swimwear (bra, panties, boxers) was bad for the pool. I myself was wearing boxers under my boardshorts and that didnt seem to be an issue. All in all our khmer friend was nearly reduced to tears because of a pervert that could not offer a decent reason as to what the problem truly was. As stated at the beginning of my post the staff were all very happy and extremely kind to us bar the older white man.
