Great Hotel, Electrocution Aside

Posted by Anselm on 21/1/2010 at 13:38

I recently stayed one night at the Bopha and except for being electrocuted in the shower, I'd recommend it. The hotel and grounds are gorgeous, the pool is large, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the rooms are nice. But then ... I was showering, holding the handset to rinse off and not spray the entire bathroom with water, when I got a weird vibration in my arm, I couldn't think and didn't know what was happening, I was vocalizing something like "buh buh buh buh," I couldn't drop the han ...

If you had to choose: Phnom Penh or Battambang

Posted by Bear on 13/1/2010 at 09:06

Hello all, I only have 5 nights to visit Cambodia (I can be flexible -- could be 4 or 6 nights). I'll arrive to Cambodia from Lao via plane, and will be exiting Cambodia from Siem Reap . Sadly, I don't have the luxury of time during this trip and have decided to focus my time (10 nights) in two areas: Luang Prabrang and Siem Reap. My interests are hiking, cafes, food, historical sites and getting to know locals and other travelers. Not so much into night life or adventure sports. While ...

Warning - WinkingFrog guesthouse Phnom Penh

Posted by worldnomad on 3/10/2009 at 17:30

What rates as absolutely terrible customer service and hotel stay? How about being woken up early in the morning by construction that is shaking the walls and so loud that you can't even carry on a conversation? How about no running water in the room? How about the owner of the hotel just shrugging and saying it doesn't matter what you think? There is a fairly new guesthouse and pub in Phnom Penh called the WinkingFrog. It has attractively priced budget rooms and is located near the r ...

How much can we expect to pay for taxi from PP to Kampot?

Posted by ibon on 6/1/2010 at 15:00

We're aiming to get from Phnom Penh to Kampot in a couple of days. The taxi seems the quicker way to go, although obviously more expensive. We'll have a maximum budget of about USD$25. Can we realistically expect to bargain a taxi down to this price (or lower) for a one way trip? ...

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts about Sen Monorom, ie is it worth the 10hour ride?

Travelfish query

Posted by grumpy on 3/1/2010 at 06:55

I recently travelled around Cambodia and got friendly, as you do, with many of the guesthouse owners and staff. Now, on this site it claims that it reviews "anonymously" but nearly every single place i went they claimed to know the "travelfish" people, gave names and also said when they'd been through. So come on, which is it? Are Travelfish people reviewing anonymously or are they not? ...

Hello all, My apologies if these questions have been asked and answered already, I did do a search, honest.

Hello! I am going for 3 weeks to Laos and Cambodia. I already planned Laos but I keep changing plans for Cambodia. The issue is mainly that I would like to end the holidays with a couple of days at a nice beach.

Could someone maybe recommend a route which finishes at a nice beach on a Thai island? I started thinking that I don't have enough time to se ...
