Sickness is unavoidable, especially when traveling on long trips to many countries, it is easy to get sick if you do not take care of your health care while traveling. If you are traveling in the country, it is not difficult to find a good hospital or at least a good pharmacy. But if you travel abroad, especially in countries where health is not as developed as Cambodia, finding a good hospital or pharmacy is not easy.
“Siem Reap is not the best place to get sick.” That’s because medical-health services here are either expensive or the expertise of the medical staff is not good enough, or both. If you or your relative is seriously ill, we recommend that you go to Bangkok for treatment if possible. In case you are only mildly ill, we suggest some following hospitals and pharmacies- the better places to look for when getting sick in Siem Reap.
