    How to say where is the bathroom & hotel.

    Hi, I was just bored, so here is the four most important phrases that you'll probably need. Attempt your best pronunciation since Khmer is one of the most daunting of Asian languages, I can only approximate the vowels for you guys. Luckily, no tones so you don't have to worry about saying the wrong word!

    Where is the bathroom?
    Bontoob teuk nul ti na? or bontoob teuk kawnlaing na?
    បន្ទប់តទឹកនៅទីណា? បន្ទប់ទឹកកន្លែងណា?

    Where is the ____ hotel?
    Oetail (sontagear) ____ vea nul ti na?
    អូតែល____(សណ្ធាគារ)វានៅទីណា? (I would use oetail over sontagear because sontagear sounds too proper.)

    Re: How to say where is the bathroom & hotel.

    I say.

    For where is the bathroom:
    Hawng Naam Yuu Tee-Nai.

    For 'where is the hotel'
    Rong Reem Yuu Tee-Nai. (Khrup).

    Another word for Hotel can be 'baan pak', which is normally used for guesthouses etc.

    Hope this helps

    Isn't this Thai? Is Thai widely understood in Cambodia?
