    Given the weather warnings re super typhoons etc for Phillipines & Central Vietnam, does this mean heavy rain & flooding for Cambodia, Laos etc?
    What is the weather like in Cambodia ATM? When the weather forecast says thunderstorms does this mean a brief one in the afternoon or an all day shocker?
    we are heading there in a week.

    I saw a news report last night that Kep on the Cambodian coast had been very badly affected, but i can't find anything about it now... Regardless if you've got another week till you head there, matters should have sett;ed down -- at least weather wise.

    Siem Reap has had quite a bit of flooding including Pub st and surrounds. The rain isnt constant though and the water should subside. Read Dianas blog entry for yesterday complete with pics. http://cambodiacalling.blogspot.com/ So far here in Phnom Penh it hasnt been too bad mostly short sharp showers and no flooding...fingers crossed :)

    we were in Siem Reap last week tues-fri for all the rain and subsequent flooding. the flooding was really bad all around town and in many of the temples. if you dont mind wading around in sometimes knee-deep water (very dirty water sometimes!), go for it. by next week it should be better, but the locals seemed to think it would take quite a while for the water level of the river to recede and for the city to absorb the flooding. out in the rural areas towards the further away temples things were better, just the odd flooded road but not impassable. the temples were actually really beautiful filled with water...
