    Hello to everyone, I hope you can help me.

    I am planning on visiting Siem Reap, Ankhor Wat and Phnom Penh but I want to make this trip as authentic as possible, that means to me that I want a guest house, run by a family or something similar and not a hotel chain or anything too hotel-like.

    When visiting places, I really like to taste their way of living up to a point, but would prefer some luxuries such as Hot Water and maybe internet access (although internet is not crucial).

    With all the experienced travellers out there, could someone recommend me a place to stay at each of them locations?

    I thank you in advance

    John

    I stayed at Two Dragons G/H its run by a yank but as he says you'll get over it his name is Gordon Its a great place to stay and prices were reasonable.
    Its not authentic but its a start.

    In Siem Reap I'd recommend the "Golden Banana" guest house. Not too big, off the strip so it's quiet. Good rates with breakfast included. Very nice all Cambodian staff. I'm not sure about internet access but the rooms are nice and clean with ensuite bathroom with hot water.

    Hi

    We stayed at 2 Dragons too - and had a great time.

    If you do stay there you must chat to the tuk tuk drivers outside ... well when i say chat, i mean get drunk with them whilst chatting... great fun!

    Hello,
    I would say that an authentic trip to cambodia does not include hot shower, nor internet...
    Places runned by khmers families provides exactly the same as foreigner, except maybe some bed and breakfast.
    You will find the authenticity outside, in the streets, when meeting khmer people going out.
    Have a good trip here! People are always friendly and like to share their experiences!
