Posted by wouter71 on 6/3/2013 at 12:59

We are planning a 3 month trip in Thailand, Laos & Cambodia this winter with two children (then: 7 and 5). For practical reasons we are thinking of hiring a car. Last year we did this in Thailand for a couple of days - driving ourselves - so we know what to expect there. But who can advise us on doing this in Cambodia?

I was there for ten days before and did the typical Siem Reap and Phnom Penn sites. Does anyone have any good experience of the beaches and islands?

My best week of my last South East Asia trip was on T ...

Landmines?

Posted by lylzezane01 on 20/2/2013 at 11:23

I am looking at going camping with a few friends on Koh Ta Kiev (an island off of Sihanoukville. I am not sure how far exactly, but it is in day tripping distance). There is no designated area to camp in and they pretty much just give you a tent and you go and set it up on your own. Is someone able to tell me the landmine situation on this island? I would talk to the locals but we have to book a fair time in advance. Thanks ...
