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! ...

Hello all, First post in a long time ... I'm trying to plan a short vacation to Cambodia during the first couple of weeks of July.

Hi All Husband and I (late 50's) are planning our trip for November. We travel quite often but just Europe and the US so this year we're heading further east.

Phnom Penh to Kampot or to Kep

Posted by lajoy9 on 17/3/2017 at 04:51

Dear all, congratulations for The New York Times vote. Travelfish is most valuable to me while on my first trip to SE Asia. Food, directions and things to do. Hotels occasionally. Today's question is: We are in PP at the moment, going to Kep for 2 nights, than 5 nights in Kampot . I thought about maybe going directly to Kampot from PP, leave our luggage our Kampot Hotel, rent a motorbike for 2 days to go to Kep and come back 2 days later. Would that be a good plan? In Kep, we wa ...

WARNING: do NOT use services from VR Express and BEWARE border crossing into Laos

Posted by sighne on 6/3/2017 at 03:01

My friend and I took a bus from Siem Reap to 4000 islands, and it was f---ing awful. Textbook corruption. VR Express is either working for or with Phnom Penh Sorya Transport Co., which has its own host of horrid reviews. Here is a general summary of the trip: 1. The bus driver talked on the phone for a significant portion of the drive. 2. There were multiple vehicles changes that were not mentioned beforehand, and at one point, we were left stranded at a gas station in Stung Treng ...

Is exploring Cambodia (Sihanoukville) by motorbike safe?

Posted by imm3344 on 21/10/2016 at 06:49

Hello all, How dangerous is it for 2 people to drive on a single motorbike around Sihanoukville during the day and night time? And take a day trip from Sihanoukville to Kampot and back? We have some experience with driving in Asia. We planned to spend about 20 days in December exploring Cambodia by motorbike with Sihanoukville as our base, but are having second thoughts about visiting Cambodia after reading about murders, beatings and ambushes of foreigners that happen in Cambodia ...
