Sex workers find new way of getting clients in Phnom Penh

Have you ever driven on the road south of Sorya Shopping Centre at midnight? If you have, what did you experience?

At around 10:30pm on April 8, I was driving a motorbike back home from a party with a friend. When driving on Street 154 near Sorya, we decided to get a drink so we slowed down. Just as we were stopping, a guy who looked like a moto taxi driver came up to us and asked, “Sir, you need a girl?”

I said no and the guy left. Then I continued and the same thing happened. Again, I said no. While we were buying our water on the side of the street, we saw many drivers taking ladies away. That is when we realised that the area had become a new sex district.

We just learned about that place. It is an interesting area to find customers. However, I started to question what will happen if the place stays a sex district. Will it become famous for sex in the near future?
