Bokor Mountain - See it before it's gone!

Posted by docgliv on 23/11/2006 at 22:57

Bokor Mountain was one of the most special places we visited in Cambodia (Nov 2006). Besides the refreshing cool breeze and climate, it is a magical atmosphere. One can wonder for hours around the hillsides walking through the ruins and imagining the French colonial architecture were intact. The road was absolutely horrible and be warned that several (larger) tourists vehicles did not make it, though our Toyota Corolla driver magically maneuvered the car-sized pot holes. Accomodations are ...

Medical Scam

Posted by galalhametayel on 23/8/2010 at 22:21

Hello, I would like to share with you the story of the one and only scam I fell in during my 4 month travel circuit in SE Asia. While staying in Siem Reap, Cambodia I developed a rash on my arms. A tuk-tuk driver told me that lots of Khmers get it as well but as a foreigner who isn't immune to local ailments i should be probably get checked out. He took me to the China-Khmer Friendship Hospital, where a Chinese man who spoke fluent English. He told me that lots of foreigners come down to the h ...

Sihanoukville beach closures

They have finally knocked down the businesses on Otres beach. 'So now by our reckoning seventy five percent of all the beachfront in Snooky is either fenced off and closed to the public or is basically a building site!' taken from Bayon Pearnik online magazine, August 2010. Interesting fact if you are thinking of a beach break in Sihanoukville,Cambodia. There is some beach left but for how long, who knows. ...

Keeping valuables at reception

Posted by mattocmd on 6/9/2010 at 11:06

OK, so am I just a paranoid person or it is a bad idea to keep valuables with reception in guesthouses in SE Asia? I've never done it but have read of others who use that service via this website. Has anyone ever heard of any horror stories about this, such as the hotel getting "robbed" and the items being stolen? I gotta imagine is happens from time to time. Any thoughts? ...

Flying Siem Reap to Luang Prabang

Posted by kriscrox on 6/9/2010 at 18:24

Hello all, New to the site and hoping you might be able to offer your expertise about flights. We will be flying from Siem Reap to Luang Prabang , and currently the best fare by far is on Lao Airlines through Pakse. I have a couple of questions on this - Is Laos Airlines reliable to take? The other choice is Bangkok Airlines for more than twice as much. And second, the time between landing and take off to Luang Prabang is only 40 minutes. Is this enough time to make the connecting flight? T ...
