Where next? -I'm an archaeologist/anthropology student, and interested in all that cultural immersion etc. -She's similar, also keen on ...

VISA ALERT: Cambodia traps Vietnamese nationals

Posted by KanGad on 6/6/2009 at 23:30

The Cambodian government has trapped hundreds perhaps thousands of Vietnamese nationals in Cambodia, refusing to let them leave. In the past Vietnamese residents in Cambodia have ordinarily only been required Cambodian visas to enter and exit the country. As of last week, those visas have all been canceled unannounced and en masse and Cambodian immigration is refusing to issue exit visas or provide any means whereby they may leave the country legally. Vietnamese residents trying to leave the cou ...

Poipet to Siem Reap (information on taxi transportation)

Posted by farsidetravel on 31/5/2009 at 18:21

I heard the road is now completed so travel from Poipet to Siem Reap is easier. The main concern I have is the taxi transportation. I heard that it is possible to avoid the taxi mafia (which charges $60) and try to find a non-mafia (non-association) taxi. I heard the rate is around $30. I read that after immigration and customs I can just walk down the street and find my own taxi. But the problem is that the taxi mafia will follow me and argue with anyone I talk with. This doesn't ...

How does this itinerary look to you???

Posted by misterwoods on 20/5/2009 at 23:49

We are a couple in our mid 20's, fairly fit and eager, and hoping to see and do as much as we can in 1 month. Our budget is approx 30 euros/40 dollars per day, plus a couple of hundred on top for extras (hoping to spend no more than about 1200 euros / 1650 dollars). Our accom will be 'flashpacker' - somewhere between budget and mid range! I have checked out all travel between places we want to go and have a good idea about it all. The only things we have booked ahead are accom in BKK on arri ...
