When you’re riding in the back of a tuk tuk in Phnom Penh, be extra vigilant, especially when you have cell phones or other electronics in plain view of other motorists. I’ve heard many stories of motorcycle theifs driving by tuk tuk with foreign visitors and the thiefs will snatch, grab and flee, knowing their single rider motorcycle can easily outrun the larger, heavier tuk tuk vehicles.

Some Tuk Tuks offer their riders with cabins protected by gates or nets, ensuring the would-be thieves a hard time accessing their intended victims.
