With the vast increase in tourism over the last few years, Cambodia is becoming a country that is easy to get around with good facilities. Paperwork has been simplified (you can even get your tourist visa online), and the old image of a difficult country where roughing it was obligatory is now outdated. Buses now go everywhere, when less than a decade ago you traveled by pickup with reinforced suspension over potholed dusty roads. New hotels pop up everywhere, cellphone coverage gets ever better, and minimarts and ATMs are becoming the norm in towns. McDonald's has yet to arrive, but that may be just a question of time. All this doesn't mean that Cambodia is always a breeze -- some roads are still bad, and Phnom Penh is chaotic and can be intimidating. This chapter provides plenty of resources and tips for plotting your Cambodia adventure.
