Healthcare in Cambodia

The public healthcare facilities in Cambodia aren’t in very good condition and have a much lower standard than the UKs facilities. Private healthcare facilities in Cambodia are of much better standards but can often be quite expensive, so travel insurance with medical conditions is advised.

It’s also important to make sure that you speak to your GP at least 4 to 6 weeks prior to travel to check whether there are any vaccinations, or any other preventives needed.
