Taxi from Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Minh City

Posted by longleat on 5/3/2007 at 05:09

Can anyone provide information on taking a taxi from PP to HCMC? I would like to know if the taxi from PP can take us all the way to HCMC without changing taxis at the border. Also, about how much would this cost and how long would the trip take? If we have to change taxis at the border, which spot on the border would that be? How would we get a taxi at the border if we have to find one? We planned on flying, but with 3 people travelling, that will be very costly. However, I don't want to s ...

Ripp-off airline: Royal Khmer

Posted by alex864 on 19/2/2007 at 14:52

Travelers, be aware of the dishonest and shameful methods of Royal Khmer Airlines, a Cambodian airline company. I bought two round trip tickets Seoul-Siem Reap from RKA to visit the wonderful site of Angkor in February last year with my wife. While my return flight to Seoul was cancelled without notice by Royal Khmer Airlines because of aircraft technical issue, they left me without any assistance in Siem Reap. Having already paid for the tickets to RKA, I had to spend another USD 1,000 for ...

Scam or Gem?The Truth about Angkor Association for the Disabled – A (Live-in) Volunteer’s Experience

Posted by travelation on 17/2/2007 at 17:50

I went to Cambodia in January 2007 with the aim of volunteering with Angkor Association for the Disabled (AAD). I had been looking for volunteer opportunities in Cambodia and had read about AAD which was based in Siem Reap. Conscious and wary of the plethora of organisations/NGOs that mask themselves under the name of charity but are only out to scam donations from unsuspecting donors/volunteers, I wanted to be sure that AAD was worth my commitment. Hence, I started doing my ‘homework’ an ...

Ban Lung to Phnom Penh

Posted by amb257 on 9/2/2007 at 03:06

Hi all! We're going to Cambodia in March, and planning on spending a few days in Rattanakiri. We've decided to fly from Phnom Penh to Ban Lung to save some time, but we'll return to Phnom Penh over land. What is a realistic time frame to plan for the return trip? Can you do it in one day, or should we plan on staying the night in Kratie? Also, I'm intrigued by the irriwadi dolphins in Kratie. I'd love to hear from someone who's seen them. What are the chances of actually getting to ...

Sihanoukville

Discover Cambodia Ancient temples, empty beaches, mighty rivers, remote forests ...and (outside Angkor) only a handful of tourists. But the word is out - Cambodia has emerged from decades of war and isolation and is well and truly back on the southeast Asian travel map. Although many get no further than the ancient temple complex of Angkor Wat, Cambodia has much to offer. From the lazy beaches of Sihanoukville and Kep to the atmospheric Bokor Hill Station, there's a lot more to this charming ...

what kind of electrical adapter/converter do i need for cam?! someone told me i should always wear shirts with sleeves while in Cam. Is this true? I imagine this would be the case at Angor or villages, but can I wear tank tops in Phnom Penh? I know it is advised that females should not travel through PP alone at night. However, I will be there by myself and want to have some kind of social life. How late is late? Am I able to travel after dark (just not so late)? If so, when is my Cinderel ...
