Who is a good tuk tuk driver or guide in Siem Reap? Sticky!

Posted by somtam2000 on 13/1/2010 at 12:38

If you want to pre-book him, his name is Saron and his email address is Enjoy! ...

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 ...

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!! ...

Advice for a week from Luang Prabang to Siem Reap and Bangkok?

Posted by JGBR on 14/9/2016 at 21:42

My husband and I are planning a few weeks in Thailand, Laos & Cambodia in October, and we're a bit stuck on the last week. We will have already spent time in Thailand and are visiting Luang Prabang for Boun Ok Phonsa (in mid October). We then have a week to get back to Bangkok, and would like to get to Siem Reap , but do not want to spend the whole week there. The challenge is that it seems we don't have quite enough time to fit in another far-flung destination that requires a whole ...

Stung Treng to Siem Reap bus

Posted by clinesmiths on 10/9/2016 at 14:15

I've heard there is a new bus route from Stung Treng to Siem Reap (via Krong Preah Vihear) now that there has been a bridge added across the Mekong from Stung Treng. It would be a real time saver, but I can't seem to find any info on this. Has anyone taken this route? If so what bus company did you use? We would be willing to pay for a taxi as well. Any info would be appreciated. ...

Homestay in Tonle Sap Lake?

Posted by macroscopios on 28/7/2016 at 00:04

I did something like that in Banteay Chmaar with a rural community tourism organization and stayed in the same house with a khmer family (I had my own room but shared toilet) and was amazing. I wonder if there is any rural organization that does the same in Tonle Sap lake.. I am not looking for luxury (I can't afford it anyway) but a real experience and to help humble and honest local people, not somebody who has a company and pays little to nothing to their employers. Have you done it or hear ...
