"But the grim face is not just because of the dirtiness. It's because Phnom Penh could, and did get skankier. 20 minutes after I arrived, looking for a hotel with my backpack on:
'Tuk-tuk?' 'No thank you.' 'Massage boom boom?' 'No thank you.' 'Boom boom? Small? Very small, very young!'
I'm pretty sure I was getting offered child prostitutes in broad daylight, on a busy street in the respectably touristy part of town. There're signs everywhere for the government's anti-child prostitution programme. Clearly, it's got some way to go." - Keith Ng, Have Sex. Will Travel., publicaddress.net, 15 Jan 2009.
