New Museum in Siem Reap and more

Posted by efkphd on 29/1/2008 at 06:03

Just returned from Siem Reap. Check out the new museum, it's truly terrific. Entrance fee is $12, but worth it. Might be a useful stop before visiting Ankgor Wat. Siem Reap is a surprise, lots to do in town with a vigorous tourist scene near the market; streets and alleys closed off to traffic and filled with open air restaurants. We stayed at the mid-range City River hotel in a quiet location within 10 min. walk to the market. Small restaurants next door were excellent and inexpensive. Best tim ...

Posted by appleegg on 28/3/2008 at 05:30

......Aloha, I made a trip to Angkor wat a few weeks back and got a driver from the taxi queue at the siem reap airport. His name was chan thol and he was very kind and knowledgeable. he new a lot of good things to do at night and knew about all the temples in the area. he had a nice newer camry with an icy cold aircon. To be honest, he almost was too good of a negotiator when we went shopping , I felt I was paying too little sometimes…but I guess if I was the sellers wouldn’t sell right? ...

Honest local guide in PP and Siem Reap?

Posted by sputnik0 on 6/6/2008 at 10:39

Is there a way to set up a permanent thread for local guide suggestions? My two girl friends and I will be traveling to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap this June from Saigon. Should we go to PP or SR first? Is there anyone who lives or has lived in these cities who can recommend an honest local guide who speaks English to show us around, preferably with transportation too? We are planning to spend 4 days in both cities total. So maybe 3 days in Angkor and surrounding area and 1 day in PP? Is ...

If there is, does anyone know approximate costs or where in the airport it is. Thanks in advance ...
