POI PET SCAM

DO NOT exchange your money on the border crossing into Cambodia. It is a scam. The exchange in HORRIBLE and you should know the exchange is 4000 Riel to the dollar, commission is a hoax, and your Thai baht works JUST FINE. In fact, if you are reading this and encounter this event, stand up for your fellow men and scream "NONSENSE you Fuck wad".

But do be a little discreet since you will probably severely piss off the guide.

I think a better response is to smile politely and say no.
And when in Sth East Asia don't complain about paying that extra dollar for something. Just remember that the $1 is probably a full days wage for someone.

Calling a Thai a Fuck wad is maybe the stupidest thing you can do. Most times nothing will happen, but if you're unlucky and he's had a bad day you probably will get your face kicked in.
