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! ...

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 ...

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 ...

Kampot to Thailand

Posted by Rosievie on 17/9/2019 at 15:15

Hi. We are two over 60s planning an Asian adventure next year. I have a gap in my plans from arriving in Kampot to getting somewhere in Thailand preferably without taking a flight. Any tips on border crossings (which I have read elsewhere can be a nightmare)? Is it better via Sihanoukville/ Koh Rong or back to PP and bus to Bangkok? Or is it going to take so long that it’s sensible to fly anyway? I’m hoping to read your advice and experiences please. Susan ...

Weed in Cambodia ?

Posted by Gordon_M on 12/7/2006 at 19:43

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 ...

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 ...

Cambodia Angkor Air the worst airline ever

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. At the airport the CAA desk was open and the flight clerks were there but they kept us waiting standing for another 30 minutes. When I got served some officious little supervisor told me that we were only allowed 1 checked in piece of luggage, so I must take my 2 backpacks weighing a max of 12 kg to a wrapping machine to ...

Southern Cambodia

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! ...
