Earlier this month I was waiting for a friend at the 168 Sorya bus ticket office at the bus station in Sihanoukville. The ticket office manager of that company pointed at one of his foreign customers boarding a bus to Ho Chi Minh city and sneering shouted " Chickay", which means dog.

In Cambodia dog is the lowest insult you can say to any person. It literally means low, street vermin. I have often heard Cambodians call foreigners dogs but this is the first time I have heard anyone from a big company call a foreigner, one of its own customers, by this vile, disgusting, repugnant, low and racist name. Take note then foreign travellers, this is what the staff of 168 Sorya bus company think of you. Better travel by one of the many other bus companies that will treat you with respect and decency.

I think a good idea is to have this posted on TripAdvisor as well.
