After kickoff event of Cambodia Street View Driving in Phnom Penh, the street view team should start collecting data in Phnom Penh Capital City of Cambodia, but during that time there were CNRP mass demonstrations about the disagreement of 2013 election results. To avoid the demonstration march in Phnom Penh, the street view team had moved to start collecting the imagery at Siem Reap from 22 August 2013.
