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! ...

Tuk Tuk Driver in Siem Reap

Posted by mralfr3dchan on 5/7/2016 at 04:05

Had the pleasure of having a companian whilst at Siem Reap last month. Tuk Tuk driver and guide. Was very punctual and what I like about him is that he is pretty committed to his schedule, unlikely many who seemed to be rushing around. Handled our travel itinerary well, brought us to spots which touristless photography was possible. It was a nice trip and I felt I should do him fair by introducing to fellow travelers for your consideration to use him. You can see his website here. He can speak ...

Help with visiting Preah Vihear, Koh Ker, and Beng Mealea

Posted by MichaelW on 10/6/2016 at 07:05

Hi all, I've been living in Cambodia for a year but since I'm based in the south, I know very little about the north. I am looking for advice on the best way to visit Preah Vihear, Koh Ker , and Beng Mealea. The main problem is that it seems like too much to do in a single day. If I were just picking two, I'd probably just hire a taxi and go up from Siem Reap for a day trip. My recent thought was to go up to Preah Vihear, spend the night in Sra Em, then hit Koh Ker and Beng Mealea t ...

16 days in north Thai/Cambodia. Any hint?

Posted by goncourt10 on 27/4/2016 at 15:59

Hi there! My gf and myself are flying next week to Bangkok for 15 days. For the time being, we only have got this flight, so it's a last minute planning...By the way, our main goals are visit Angkor Wat area and lay back some days in some cool islands (preferably Cambodian, if worth it). So our idea is not to stop in Bangkok, but going directly to Chiang Mai/Rai and spend 2/3 days there. Then, move to Siem Reap and dedicate 2/3 more days to Angkor Wat area. Then, heading Cambodian Isla ...

Hi all Heading to Cambodia (with a few days in Vietnam) the week after next, for just under six weeks, all overland from and back to home in Bangkok. I've spent time in Cambodia on a couple of occasions but, with the exception of Siem Reap and Sihanoukville town, these are all new destinations for me. So I'd love any thoughts on my planned itinerary from any more experienced Cambodia hands who have a moment - particularly anything where I'd be better off taking in places in a different ...

I've been robbed before abroad and plan on it not happening again. I do not mind carving someone up to ribbons for the sake of maintaining my well-being. ...
