e-visas into Cambodia - any issues?

Posted by gingersmith869 on 8/9/2011 at 19:50

Hi all, I've heard most of the uniformed border officials for both Cambodia and Vietnam are unscrupulous and regularly try to scam tourists regularly for anything they can. I'm planning on heading from Ho Chi Minh to the Moc Bai/Bavet crossing and have read in the LP that getting an e-visa can be a good way of bypassing such problems. I was wondering if anyone could provide information on these to see if it's worth doing? The website is for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Cambodia (http:/ ...

Elephant Ride Banglung Cambodia

Posted by kendramarshall on 5/9/2011 at 02:57

We stayed at Lake View Lodge in June 2011 for three nights. The accommodation is average as is the restaurant. However, I would like to comment on the Elephant Ride which was arranged through THe Lake View Lodge's own tourist agency. Firstly we were taken by scooter to the village to begin the ride. The driver of my partner's scooter was driving much too fast and was sliding around in the mud, he asked several times for the driver to slow down but he did not and eventually the bike slipped again ...

Phnom Pehn or Siem Reap to Koh Chang??

Posted by crispydog on 3/9/2011 at 15:46

Ok, so i was in Siem Reap and enquired with my hotel about the cost of a bus to Koh Chang. I got quoted $11. I thought this would give me a ballpark figure of what to expect to pay from Phnom Pehn which i had to return to to collect my passport from the Thai embassy. On the map, SR and PP seem similar distances from Koh Chang. Back in Phnom Pehn i cannot find a bus cheaper than $21 anywhere! Can someone please tell me why this journey is so much more expensive to make from PP??? It actually w ...

hello, i will be travelling to siem reap with 5 of my friends next week, and would like to know if any of you had experience with booking a private minivan that will go from poipet straight to the hotel in siem reap. as we are all below 18, our parents are not comfortable with the idea of us take private taxis, i think they're afraid of us being kidnapped or robbed along the way. we will reach poipet at around 12pm, and hope to reach siem reap before dark. do any of you have other alternatives ...

Early morning taxi from Siem Reap to Poipet

Posted by amalie on 18/1/2009 at 07:08

Hi Guys, We'll be travelling the SR - Poipet - BKK route in a few weeks and want to make it to Bangkok as early as possible - by lunchtime would be perfect! Does anyone know what the earliest possible time a taxi will leave for Poipet from Siem Reap (we don't want to do the trip in the dark, and I don't think the taxi drivers would want to either!). I'm going to make a guess that it's about 5am? Anyone done this trip early? How much did the taxi cost? Thanks for the help :) Amalie x ...
