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! ...

2 week itinerary advice

Posted by adlis on 26/11/2016 at 16:56

My partner and I are travelling to Cambodia for 2 weeks from New Zealand and have put together an itinerary and was curious to know peoples thoughts. We had originally planned a more relaxed itinerary without Mondulkiri, but thought it sounded really great and perhaps worth squeezing it in - but that said, we don't want the trip to feel rushed. Thanks in advance! Siem Reap - 3 nights (23-26) Shuttle/private cab to Battabang Battabang - 2 nights (26-28) Drive back to Siem Reap and catch ...

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 ...

Kratie in March

Posted by caroc on 1/11/2016 at 09:57

I'm spending a few weeks in Cambodia (second visit) in March 2017 and I'm planning to take the bus from Phnom Penh to Kratie for a few days. I'd like to make it up to Kampi in the hope of seeing a dolphin or two. I know there is good info on this website, although I wonder why they say to "leave the camera behind" re dolphins. Is this a question of just "being there in the moment"? Has anyone had recent experience of Kratie town and province and would there be any di ...

Hello, We are two couples traveling in Laos/Cambodia from Dec 15th to Jan 7th. We were hoping to stay in Koh Rong Samloem for a couple of days around New Year, but it appears every decent place is booked (Agoda, Booking, ...).

Hi all I was in Siem Reap in Mid November 2012 and the weather was OK - just a strong but brief rainstorm in the afternoon but sunny for the rest of the day. I am now planning to be there the very last 4 days of October and I was wondering what might be the impact of la Nina, which according to some websites has a 75% probability of gaining strength. What is your experience? Do I have 75% probability of finding bad weather all day long? Thanks!! ...
