Change currency or use USD

Posted by sunlvr on 16/9/2015 at 17:50

I've been reading recently that a lot of places now accept USD and the Riel. Any suggestions on what currency is better to use? If using USD should I mainly bring small bills? I have heard no torn or marked up bills will be accepted. We will be going into Laos as well, does anyone know if its the same there? TIA ...

Travelling in Rural Cambodia with Kids - Car/Driver/Guide?

Posted by warrengong on 8/11/2015 at 01:48

Hi all, We are a family of five and new to overseas travel. So we decided our first adventure would be Cambodia as my husband has recently visited the country with work. The kids are 15,13 & 11. We fly into Siem Reap, and over 2 weeks would like our trip to go something like this SR - Preah Vihear-Stung Treng- Kratie-Sen Monorom - SR. Can we just hire a new car/driver at each of these towns/cities? or should we hire a driver/car in SR and pay them to do the whole trip? We just don't wa ...

A new trek on offer in Virachey

Posted by gregmccann1 on 28/9/2015 at 10:11

The Virachey National Park staff has created a new trek to the little known Mera Mountain-Yak Yeuk Grasslands area up near the Lao border. This trek begins in Voen Sai district in a Kavet village on the O Lai Lai River and takes you up to the border mountains where only one tour group has ever been (that group consisting of myself and birder Howie Nielsen in 2013). If you want to get way off the beaten path with incredible local guides who know all the stories, all the trails, all the animals, a ...

Cambodia - September 2015

Posted by Soe on 2/5/2015 at 11:15

I am planning a trip to Cambodia for early September - as of now I'm traveling solo (female) and even though I've done a fair amount of this in the past, it's been a while since I struck out on my own so I'm trying to decide between my own itinerary and something like joining an Intrepid tour. There's a tour that hits most of the places on the itinerary I put together (see below). I've priced out my accommodations and internal travel (I'm not on a super-tight budget, but not going high-end eithe ...

Hi, I am going to Siem Reap in mid November and I am, of course, going to see the Temples of Angkor . I will stay in a hotel in Seim Reap.

Hi I have 2 weeks in Cambodia in February 2016 beginning and ending in PP due to flights booked. This is my 3rd visit and I really want to go somewhere new but finding it difficult to find somewhere which does not involve excessive amounts of travel.

Myself and 2 friends will be in Siem Reap for 3 days in mid October. Would you recommend hiring a guide for Angkor or doing it on our own? I want to be sure to see the well known temples but also some of the off the beaten path ones as well. I'm used to being my own tour guide but with the short time we will be there, we want to make the most of it. Also, looking for suggestions on guesthouses; we have looked online and the choices are endless! Have looked (and liked) Golden Butterfly. Shoul ...
