Travel inconveniences you may encounter arriving to Sen Monorom ( Mondulkiri ):

1. Tourist touts at the station
When getting of the bus in Mondulkiri or elsewhere Cambodia, tourist touts will lurke at the bus stop, sometimes even get on the bus, offering accommodation, yours and other services.
These touts do not have your best interest in mind, they usually work for a guest house that pays them per head commission.. Pay extra attention to your belongings while they are around. We recommended skipping anyone who is trying to offer \ sell you something as soon as you step off the bus - especially if they're offering free rides etc', It's better to take a regular moto to your destination.

2. Overly friendly guides
This applies mostly to female travelers - There have been cases of minor sexual harassment by freelancing trekking guides.
To avoid this - Book your tours at your guest house or a tour agency / office. Be careful when approached on the street. If possible, find a fellow traveler or group to join while trekking.
If your guide get too close, says or does anything that makes you uncomfortable - Tell him immediately you are not happy with it. In case it is an agency guide, report the incident when you return from tour.
