Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City by motorbike

Posted by seaniegraham on 15/5/2015 at 09:45

Hi all! I am planning on spending NYE 15/16 in Bangkok, Thailand then getting a coach to Pattaya on the 1st/2nd Jan 2016 to avoid the busy city escape.

Hi all, i know this may seem odd and to most stupid but i was reading an article(i have it in my faves somewhere) about smoking weed in cambodia, the women writing the article was saying how relaxed it used to be, that you could go to a market in siem reap and at the back theres a woman selling herbs and so on but she also sells weed. I was wondering how easy it is to get a bit for a smoke, how dangerous it is actually buying it and the quality, also i heard about a pizza place where you ca ord ...

Preah Vihear village to temple.

Posted by PatyDifusa on 11/5/2015 at 03:48

Hi there, I'm staying in Preah Vihear town and I was wondering if anyone went directly from here to the temple. For what I read in many related post, people came in organized tours from SR. I was told in my hotel that there is not motorbike rental in town at the moment. And also, I don't know if the road is good enough for a non experience driver The moto taxi is asking me more than 37$ for 100km, what I think it's a rip off and I'm not willing to pay. Any comments are much appreciated. ...

I am planing a trip to Thailand and Cambodia for January and February 2016. We are looking for flashpacker to midrange guesthouses or hotels.

Hi guys! I am at a complete loss. I have just arrived in Siem Reap and I have no idea where to start. I have a main stream guide book on Cambodia, but it feels outdated (2012) and unclear.

What are the on going rates. In my hotel i get a quote that just seems outrageous. 3. How to plan. What to see fi ...
