Who is a good tuk tuk driver or guide in Siem Reap? Sticky!

Posted by somtam2000 on 13/1/2010 at 12:38

Hi all, Myself and my husband had a wicked day in Angkor and had a lovely, reliable tuk tuk driver. He was at our beck and call all day and even drove us to the airport at the end of the day too as part of the price. We paid $15 and he picked us up at 7.30am and took us to the airport at 7.30pm. If you want to pre-book him, his name is Saron and his email address is saronotto@yahoo.com. Enjoy! ...

16 days in north Thai/Cambodia. Any hint?

Posted by goncourt10 on 27/4/2016 at 15:59

For the time being, we only have got this flight, so it's a last minute planning...By the way, our main goals are visit Angkor Wat area and lay back some days in some cool islands (preferably Cambodian, if worth it). So our idea is not to stop in Bangkok, but going directly to Chiang Mai/Rai and spend 2/3 days there. Then, move to Siem Reap and dedicate 2/3 more days to Angkor Wat area. Then, heading Cambodian Isla ...

Six-week Cambodia itinerary: feedback?

Posted by chriswotton on 6/4/2016 at 09:40

Hi all Heading to Cambodia (with a few days in Vietnam) the week after next, for just under six weeks, all overland from and back to home in Bangkok. I've spent time in Cambodia on a couple of occasions but, with the exception of Siem Reap and Sihanoukville town, these are all new destinations for me. So I'd love any thoughts on my planned itinerary from any more experienced Cambodia hands who have a moment - particularly anything where I'd be better off taking in places in a different ...

What I don't like about Cambodia...

Posted by altmtl on 16/3/2013 at 05:32

I've been here since Feb. 27th and I must say the thing that has ruined it for me is the annoying Tuk Tuk and moto drivers who pester me and other tourists constantly, Some places are worse than others. I can't even cross the street or walk a block sometimes without being harrassed. They are every where honking their horn and yelling at me one after another... so much for a peaceful walk or taking a photo, and god forbid if they see you looking at a map. Yesterday I had a scooter helmet on and ...

I was thinking BKK 2 maybe if that area doesn't have a lot of expats or maybe near Olympic stadium so I could workout with the locals. Thoughts? ...
