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! ...

Newly updated: Koh Kong

Posted by somtam2000 on 1/2/2016 at 01:59

Koh Kong is one of those towns that people often just blow through on the way to somewhere else. On this recent update of Koh Kong our writer found there were actually plenty of reasons to slow down. Think river boat trips, trekking, island exploring, fancy-pants floating hotels and more. So maybe give it a night or two when you're passing through next. ...

Rabies ?! high risk ? anxious - advice please :(

Posted by lizepize on 20/1/2016 at 03:09

Dear all, My trip for a month is getting closer. I am leaving in 3 weeks and feeling really anxious. To be honest, I didn't do much research about Laos and Cambodia before deciding on going there. I went to Thailand and loved it, so I kind of knew what to expect. I didn't knew tough that these areas were high risk zones of rabies. This time I will be packpacking low budget so I'm getting really worried about my potentional risk of rabies. I also assumed if i got the shot, I would be fine. ...

Wanna share a taxi to Prasat Preah Vihear?

Posted by VIX555 on 18/1/2016 at 05:46

Hello! We are really keen to visit Prasat Preah Vihear and taxi seems to be the best way to go. We have found someone who will drive return to Prasat Preah Vihear, Koh Ker and Banteay Sri from Siem Reap for $155. This is a lot but could be less if shared!! We have looked into doing it using local share taxis and though it works out a bit cheaper, we couldn't do as many temples in one day and might have to stay overnight in a the town near Prasat Preah Vihear to make it work. We are mainly in ...

Trip from Battambang/Pursat to Koh Kong (via Cardamom Mountains; Pramoay and O Som)

Posted by celsau on 21/12/2015 at 07:25

Hi there! My boyfriend and I are planning on taking the road from Pursat to Koh Kong through Pramoay (Promui) and O Som in a couple of weeks (end of December 2015-early January 2016). I haven't found a lot of information about this road, only that it's apparently not recommended (general advice is to go through Phnom Penh), that there is no public transportation and that the road is not in great condition in some parts. Has anyone taken this road before? Any recommendations ? Thanks for the help ...

Boat - Siem Reap to Battambang

Posted by SteinOfOrange on 25/11/2010 at 13:22

I have been through this before so excuse my dryness (been in Cambodia 3 years,) and here is my experience just last week. $21 ticket for the boat to Battambang from Siem Reap. Told it was a 7 hour journey. The van, which ended up being a pick-up truck, was supposed to arrive at 6AM and arrived at 6:45. The boat was so full we ended up on the roof - beware of the sun as this ended up being a 9 hour ordeal. The scenery was pleasant. Upon arrival 8 out of 8 people I talked with said they wer ...

Cambodia Kingdom of Racists

Posted by breezy7 on 31/10/2012 at 08:22

I was in Sihanoukville Cambodia earlier this year having just arrived on my moto outside a bakery. I noticed that I had blocked in 2 Cambodian women on a moto when I heard one say to the other " There is a Chikay (dog ) behind you". I looked around for a dog when I realized that they were referring to ME. For some reason Cambodians like, with a huge sneer on their face to call foreigners Chikay, or dogs. But this is the worst of all insults in their culture and is totally racist. O ...
