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! ...

Planning route

Posted by Louise73 on 3/4/2018 at 05:07

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. Also on return i would have to fly back from.Bangkok to Calcutta so need to factor in these transfers in my time above. What I want from my trip is to see Angkor Wat and to focus on the local food, I would like to go to Kep or similar location for the fresh crab. So is it doable to visit for such short t ...

Battambang or Sambor prei kuk

Posted by caroc on 25/11/2017 at 16:25

My next trip to Cambodia will be entering via Don Det in Laos and it seems that the usual route is into Siem Reap. I don't mind staying a night in SR but I am interested in seeing Battambang AND Sambor Prei Kuk before going down to Phnom Penh. Can anyone give advice on whether it is really worthwhile to do both, or have any recommendations for either/or. I can probably give about 6 to 8 days to see this region but don't want to waste too many days back and forth on buses. PS I have already bee ...

Advice re Siem Reap into Laos by bus or minivan

Posted by Lindsay88 on 4/2/2018 at 16:09

Hi My partner and I will be in Siem Reap next week and then plan to make our way up to Luang Prabang over the course of two weeks. What’s the most sensible way of getting from Siem Reap to southern Laos area? I understand there is one border crossing for internationals. If anyone knows the name of a good minivan company that will take us across the border that would be really awesome. If the routes vary after the border, I’d like to check out the 4000 islands rather than go straight ...

Cambodian e-visa on the border with Laos

Posted by mashiko on 23/12/2017 at 15:25

According to https://www.evisa.gov.kh/news evisa is now available on the land border Tropaeng Kreal Border Post (Stung Treang) with Laos (since 12 December). They also inform that on the Dong Kralo (Stung Treng) crossing point evisa is still not accepted, which is a bit confusing as I thought those two crossing points are actually the same thing. Can anyone confirm that the service is up and running? That crossing point has been famous for a very annoying scams, would be nice if not save money, ...

booking.com or just rock up for islands in late March?

Posted by spoonz on 2/1/2018 at 10:59

We are returning to Cambodia in March. Me, wife and 8 yr old daughter. I've been many times over the years but I know things have changed a lot. I really hate booking.com for the way it has changed travel but I know it can be hard to avoid sometimes. We used it last year in Thailand ( high season ) and really didn't like the way it fixed us into a plan because we had run past the cancellation period. Anyway, looking for a quiet island in Cambodia. So far I have my eyes on Lazy beach ( not on bo ...

Boat tour north of Luang Prabang on the Mekong River

My husband and I would like to do a long day trip to see the scenery and maybe stop at a village or possibly overnight in a village north of Luang Prabang on the Mekong River. We have seen various tours but all seem to be overly touristic with contrived experiences viewing the locals do their “ craft”. We enjoy seeing how rural people live and make their living but are not keen on performances. Any suggestions ?Also which village would you recommend staying in and where? ...
