Vietnamese Visa in Phnom Penh

Posted by charlottex on 11/7/2014 at 07:01

Hi, I plan to get my visa for Vietnam in Phnom Penh , I read than it's cheaper, faster and easier to get it from a travel agent or even my hotel than the embassy. Did anyone experience this? Do you have any recommendation about a travel agent in Phnom Penh who does that? And one important question, how much time do I have to get into Vietnam once I get the Visa? my flight for Vietnam is the 22 of august and I plan to get the visa this week. Thanks a lot! ...

Figuring out route--input please

Posted by redsneef on 29/9/2014 at 12:45

I am thinking of travelling to Cambodia during my 10 week adventure in the region. My base will be HCMC and I've figured out which parts of Vietnam I will be travelling to--bearing in mind my travel companion will be my 3 year old son--so it's slow travel and open ended. I would love to see SR and maybe Koh Rong or other beachy places. I'm trying to figure out if I should fly into SR then travel down to PP and then on to coast line, or should I land cross near xa xia, do the coast, go to pp a ...

Help planning first trip to Cambodia

Posted by remsam on 26/3/2014 at 11:55

I will be visiting Cambodia for the first time later this year and would greatly appreciate some input on where I should visit. I am flying into Phnom Phen and will be traveling solo for the first 9 or 10 days of my trip. I will then be joining a friend in Siem Reap for 4-5 days. I'm not sure how I should divide the first 9 to 10 days while I'm on my own. I assume I should spend the first 2 or 3 days in Phnom Phen but am not sure where to go next.

Cambodia beach sand fleas

Posted by Debbyc on 9/8/2014 at 21:34

From what I have read in many places, it makes it sound like sand fleas are a real problem on the less populated beaches of the Cambodian islands and beaches. Is that true? I don't mind bugs here and there, and they sometime creep into your room at night. But I am adverse to rodents in my abode and not being able to enjoy an early morning or late afternoon on the beach without being slathered in DEET. Bugs and animals outside are fine. We will be in Siem Reap, and want to spend the end of the ...

Hi, I am at Koh Chang in Thailand right now and will go to Cambodia tomorrow. I will cross border at Hat Lek / Koh Kong . I want to go to Siem Reap first.

Moving in from the Philippines to Cambodia

Posted by redpirate427 on 5/7/2014 at 12:21

Hi, We are a childless Filipino couple in our mid-30s with location independent jobs, so we were thinking if it would be doable in the long run (or at least a few months) to live anywhere in Cambodia or neighboring countries for much cheaper than we spend now. We are used to roughing it; i.e., no A/C, no TV, no hot shower. Just clean beds, decent indoor plumbing, and proximity to cheap and healthy food. WiFi would of course be a requirement. Would it perhaps be possible to live on US$400 a mont ...

Hello, We are currently in Siem Reap and would like to travel to Kratie. Because we had some problems with the bus (Sorya) from PP to here (took a very long time, due to beginning of rainy season?), I thought it would be a good idea to ask here how we best get to Kratie. It's ok if it's a bit more expensive, if faster or more comfortable... Thanks! ...
