Motels for students?

130423 08b

In Cambodia, a motel is thought to be a place where students (especially lovers) have a chance to commit immoral activities against our culture. Some people think this happens because of leaked videos and pictures of students having sex at motels.

Nowadays, motels are booming in Phnom Penh. We can see motels almost everywhere: next to pagodas where monks pray and next to schools where students concentrate on their studies.

Em Chomrouen, a mother of two students, said that she is worried of not knowing what her daughters are doing while away from home. With motels around, she is even more worried because her daughters have more places to do bad things.

“Motels are bad, they should not be located near schools.”

What do you think about motels being located near to schools?
