Tensions in Cambodia

Posted by ctam2009 on 30/9/2009 at 16:02

I HATE TO BE THE FIRST PERSON ASKING- but we've been told by a fellow traveler that there has been a civil war going on in Cambodia for the past 2 weeks. He also mentioned that there has been a rather large number of tourist casualties. (We know about the ongoing border disputes between Thailand and Cambodia- not worried about that as we will be flying in). I've searched the web pretty hard and checked the travel advisories with no information coming up. I would assume this guys was blowing smok ...

Excellent Accomodations in Siem Reap

Posted by PDX2BKK on 30/11/2009 at 20:38

Headed to Siem Reap? Looking for a fantastic place to stay for $5 to 12 a night? I highly recomend the Golden Takeo Guest house on Wat Bo Rd. This place has nice quiet clean rooms all with private bathrooms, plus Wi-Fi and free use of bicycles for all guests. The owner, Phrom, and all of his staff are very friendly and trust worthy people, and they can book tours of the temples or buses to anywhere in the region for local prices. This place was very good to me, if you are going to Angkor t ...

more places to visit in Cambodia-Kirirom and Kampong Speu

Posted by sayadian on 13/9/2009 at 16:01

When I visited Kirirom National Park I spent two days there and was amazed by the absence of any foreign tourists. I wonder if many on here have been or plan to visit this beautiful part of Cambodia? If they didn't go or are not planning on visiting, is/was it because of the diffculty in making transport arrangements? Again, all of you who visit the 'killing fields' in PP are you aware of a similar site in Kampong Speu with the added attraction of a beautiful riverside location.You can get th ...

A few questions on Cambodia...

Posted by starfish on 25/11/2009 at 22:30

hi! Just a few questions really: 1. Getting from Vientiane to Siem Reap - is it worth going down from southern loas or going through thailand into cambodia?

We are planning on leaving Vientiane on the 12th but need to be in Cambodia by the 15th, either route is there anywhere that would b ...

Sihanoukville or Kampot/Kep

Posted by gillerz960 on 20/11/2009 at 22:07

I originally planned to go Sihanoukville but the more I read about it the less appealing it becomes. I am looking for a beach destination in Cambodia that has good bars etc but isn't too touristy or built up. Kep is probably the preferred destination at the moment, does this sound like a good idea or shoul I consider somewhere else? ...

Hi all, On the streets of Battambang today, I spoke to a guy called Narath inviting me over to visit his project called Bricks for Cambodia. A school teaching English to local children (http://www.brick-for-cambodia.net/). Since I'm not able to visit them my self (I'm leaving for Pnom Penh), I'd like to ask if any of you have heard of the organisation and if you've visited the school. In case of positive feedback, I'm sure to make a donation. Thanks in advance, any feedback is greatly a ...
