    I didn’t see many postcards of PP, you would find alot of them in Siem Reap.
    I heard it is not worth sending a postcard since you will either not get it
    or get them months and months later.

    i love srok khmer post cards i got lots of them from pp from the new market. the ones in siem reap are too expensive. the handicap people sell them in pp, so look for them. i got three packs for four U.S dollars, and yes i did use all of them.

    Please send me a postcard too.

    This’s no longer the case. I visited home this summer, send whole bunch of postcards to my friends, they all got it in a week or two. I think Cambodian postal service now doing much better :)

    Werd? Can you refer me to the exact post office station where you had the postcards shipped? I’m interested in sending mail abroad to the States but a bit hesitant to take the next move.

    Thanks in advance, Phatry

    Same here, when I was in Cambodia, the postcards arrived before I did. I was in Cambodia for two weeks.

    In light of the recent controversy with Cambodia’s postal services, its advisable that those who are interested in sending mail abroad should do so soon as heightened security is being made to make the shipment as easiest and hassle-free as possible. The Mail Station you are referring to is where many complaints were filed regarding overpricing and lack of transparency from the workers. I’m pessimistic that these workers will turn back to their “old ways” after a couple weeks of “good” work.

    Well, “suasdey” to you too! Soksabai jea te? ;)

    well…if that how you feel about the post office services over there, i really don’t have any comment. So far, my experience with them were good. Friends send letters to me from the states, i got it like in a week or two and vice versa. Yes, I’ve noticed that they do overprice by 300R per post card send. Besides the post office that i mentioned, there are a few private carrier like DHL … where its office is in the same building with the one near wat phnom. sok sa bye chea te, or kun. Enjoy your visit in srok Khmer. ~ Sokna

    You can’t make collection with the post stamp machine. When you go to the post office, if you don’t ask for the real stamp, they will give you the stamp from the machine without picture.

    I love Siem Reap Prohok. It smells good. If you can send me some too, I’ll appreciate it very much. Thank you in advance:)

    I don’t trash the Postal Service of Cambodia. I wanted to send some postcards to my friend back at home, but my relatives stop me from doing it since they said its a waste of money. They said that take your money for the postage and not even send it and just throw it away. I have a few relatives who work for the Post Office and told many awful stories, once again don’t trust them.

    They have UPS, DHL and FedEx I think … I would probably trust them in sending things out.

    When I was there last year, I sent out several postcards to friends and family, I used the Cambodian postal service and my postcards arrived in the States in less than 2 weeks. I was quite weary at first about the system and what-not but a friend reassured me that the system is reliable and I didn’t need to worry.

    I am going again in December for a wedding and plan to send postcards using the same system.

    I saw the post selling stamps and had the mailbox on the stands in front Angkor Wat and Bayon.

    I got a postcard from Myounie:D

    http://khmer.cc/community/t.c?b=14&t=801

    I finally got a postcard from Myounie as promise.
    I like to thank Myounie so much for sending me a beautiful postcard from Cambodia.
    It took only 2 weeks to get here in Montreal, it’s faster than sending a postcard
    from Mexico to Canada.

    Wherever you are Myounie, please accept my “Thanks” for a beautiful postcard from Cambodia.:)
