Who is a good tuk tuk driver or guide in Siem Reap? Sticky!

Posted by somtam2000 on 13/1/2010 at 12:38

Hi all, Myself and my husband had a wicked day in Angkor and had a lovely, reliable tuk tuk driver. He was at our beck and call all day and even drove us to the airport at the end of the day too as part of the price. We paid $15 and he picked us up at 7.30am and took us to the airport at 7.30pm. If you want to pre-book him, his name is Saron and his email address is saronotto@yahoo.com. Enjoy! ...

Kampong or Can Tho or somewhere in between?

Posted by sharontreloar on 25/5/2019 at 04:34

In late September my family of 4 (2 x teen girls and 2 x 50 year olds) are travelling south from Siem Reap (via Battambang & Phnom Penh) to Kampot for 3 nights. We’ve got 2 days to get from Kampot to Saigon before flying home. QUESTION: Should we shorten our stay in Kampong then head to Can Tho for a couple of nights before heading to Saigon (we are interested in the Mekong Delta area, but never been there)? OR Stay an extra night each in Kampong and PP? OR Is there somewhere r ...

Posted by fairall on 6/3/2019 at 09:39

I recently booked a flight with Cambodia Angkor Air CAA from Saigon to Phnom Penh and I paid $150 for the 1 hour flight with a 20kg luggage allowance, or so I thought.

Angor Wat

Posted by ourdub on 27/2/2019 at 20:16

With all the talk about big crowds at Angor Wat I'd like to share our experience there this past February at what should be high season. We stayed at a lovely Air Bnb called Treetops just outside of the downtown area in a typical quiet Siem Reap neighborhood where the soft sound of bells and monks chanting and birds chirping was our musical atmosphere. Or hosts there, Christy and Sock helped us to have a great experience both at Angor Wat and at other unique places nearby. They are generou ...

Scooter rental in Siem Reap

Posted by mtnmichelle on 3/2/2019 at 11:50

Hey all just wanted to write up our experience renting scooters in Siem Reap and driving around Angkor Wat. We got Scoopy i scooters from Pear Heng Rental, across the street from the Sokax gas station on route 56 in the middle of town. We were able to give a copy of our passport and a $100 deposit that covered two bikes for two days for $13/day/bike. The bikes were in good condition, all lights functioned, good brakes and tires, working horn and gas gauge. The only thing not working was th ...

Southern Cambodia

Posted by lillybean on 27/11/2018 at 21:15

We are traveling for 6 months and our 2 college kids are joining us in Cambodia and Laos for 3 weeks in Dec-Jan. We wanted to have a relaxing hiatus in southern Cambodia over New Years. We were thinking Koh Rong but the hotel we had booked cancelled our reservation (apparently they closed). I am now wondering if we even want to go to that area with the reviews I’m reading. Any advice for a relaxing couple days before we head to Laos would be appreciated. Thanks! Lillian ...

Chi Phat?

Posted by Bunnytjah on 9/9/2018 at 11:04

Hi guys! Has anybody been to Chi Phat lately? Would you recommend it? The whole ecotourism concept looks really great, but when you start reading reviews it would appear that the organisation behind it tends to neglect the project organizationally and is forgetting about the community.. We would love to visit and support a project like this, but we don't fancy another brush with a NGO mafia situation.. Lot's of love! ...

Ordinary visa

Is it possible to acquire an ordinary (EG) visa on arrival in Cambodia? We will plan to be in Cambodia for more than 30 days (more likely towards three months) and may look for work to help tide us over while there, so a regular 30 day tourist visa wouldn't be appropriate. ...

Ecotourism in Virachey National Park now closed for good

Posted by gregmccann1 on 24/6/2018 at 10:11

As someone who has advocated for Virachey NP for nearly 10 years and helped promote ecotourism in the Park during that time, it saddens me to inform you all that there were be no more ecotourism in the Park anymore. It's done, over. That is what I have been told. The Park rangers, who are all poorly paid, will be losing out on extra income, and many of Brao and Kavet higlanders who live along the park's buffer zone near Sesan River used to earn some decent extra cash as guides and porters and ca ...

I am currently in India and was hoping to go to Cambodia for around 10-12 days before flying back here. I would have to fly to Bangkok from Delhi and then travel to Cambodia from there.
