Cambodia has an unfortunate reputation as a destination for paedophiles, and child sex tourism has grown here as a result of crackdowns on child prostitution in other Southeast Asian countries.

The Ministry of the Interior (National Police) asks that anyone witnessing child prostitution in Cambodia immediately report it to the police on their national “child-wise” hotline (023 997919). ChildSafe also has a 24-hour national hotline to report children at risk (012 311112, childsafe-cambodia.org). You could also consider contacting ECPAT (End Child Prostitution, Abuse and Trafficking, ecpat.net).
