Worker Taking a Break in Cambodia

Break-time

It is very common in Cambodia for workers to have off from 12:00PM – 2:00PM so that they can have lunch and rest.  Once one has lived here long enough, you begin to realize why.  The hottest part of the day is a good time for a break, and a short rest will help you be more productive during the rest of the cooler hours in the day.  But for foreigners, a lot of times, we like doing our errands during this “siesta” time because there is less traffic.
