Norry / Bamboo Train / Battambang and around

Posted by chaos23 on 2/11/2011 at 00:36

Since there are diffusing news about the Royal Khmer Railway Situation and the still exisiting bamboo trains around Battambang , I just want an update on it by people being around that part of Cambodia... Are the norrys still working? Which part of the Poipet - PP line is covered? Is ist only Odom Battam to Phnom Bale or further? Or is it possible to hop on a norry even between Sisophon and Battambang, or even to Pursat? My last information was, that the royal trains are not working anymore, ...

Night-life in Siem Reap

Posted by Puggles on 25/10/2010 at 10:29

I have only been to Siem Reap once before and it was only for a few days. I didn't really notice too many things to do in the evenings and was too tired to worry about the night-life anyway after visiting temples all day. This year, I am going for a little longer with a small group of people. One has asked about night-life. We are not specifically looking for bump and grind nightclubbing, but somewhere that would suit 30-50 year olds with perhaps some music, and maybe food as well. Can an ...

Homestays in Cambodia

Posted by Tessa123 on 11/9/2011 at 15:55

I'm going to Cambodia in October this year and will be doing alot of Homestays and other cheap accomodation. Do I need a sleeping bag or will they provide such thing? Also would this offend them? I'm 18 and travelling with my boyfriend of the same age, has anyone had many problems with accomodation in a similar situation due to different expectations of behaviour in non-marital relationships? Is there any etiquette that i should be aware of with homestays and just generally travelling around C ...

I'm trying to figure out travel times and I keep running into conflicting information. Does someone have the latest info. regarding how to get from Ban Lung to Kratie ? i.e. when do the earliest buses and/or taxis leave and how long does it typically take?

Who needs kip in Siem Reap

Posted by EnglishmaninNYC on 24/10/2011 at 11:57

Hi all I had to cut short our Laos trip and head to Siem Reap. We couldn't find a bank open on Sunday and airport exchanges were closed so have about 1.5m Kip to exchange for USD. I think a fair exchange rate would be about 8,000 kip to the dollar. So if you are in Siem Riep and need kip before heading into Laos send me a message and we can try to sort something out. Cheers (30 year old English guy travelling with misses in case anyone thought this was some weird scam) ...

Siem Reap to Bangkok, Guesthouse buses?

Posted by phishsticks on 15/10/2011 at 14:11

I spoke with the guesthouse I will be staying at in Siem Reap and they said they have their own company that will provide transportation to Bangkok. The owners are Aussie expats. I've read the travelfish article about this journey and heard lots of horror stories about cheap travel agencies and scam buses. Do you think this is a scam? Is there legitimate packaged cross border travel available in Siem Reap? or should I just do the journey on my own? Thanks ahead of time. Any insight would be a ...
