Palm Wine instead of Grape Wine

Posted by feelingangelish on 7/12/2009 at 10:18

I have been to Cambodia for 2-3 times now and every time I visit Cambodia, I never forget to buy palm wine produced by Confirel. The first time I visited Cambodia, I was afraid to taste any of the local food, especially on anything that I never had before. But my second time, I was braver and started tasting something different, such as Prohok, sour mango pickle with salt and chili or sour mango with fish sauce .... yum :) After I visited the Night market, I have introduced to the palm wi ...

How to get from Siem Reap to Stung Treng then Laos

Posted by vickstar on 29/9/2008 at 17:18

Hi, I am looking for some advice on the best way to get from Siem Reap to 4000 islands in southern laos.I'm 26yo independent female travelling in December 08. I am hoping not to backpedal all the way to Phnom Penh from Siem Reap then on to stung treng but if this is way quicker than going direct to stung treng, then I may have too. Has anyone had any experience of travelling between these two destinations? From what I've read, the roads in Cambodia don't sound so great. My ultimate des ...

Siem Reap to Bangkok - doable by lunchtime?

Posted by woden1809 on 5/12/2009 at 05:09

Hi, I know this has been covered before, but I have some questions regarding timetables! I want to get the Bangkok-Vientiane train which leaves Bangkok at 6:30 in the evening. I will be setting out from Siem Reap and want to arrive in Bangkok by the time of my train departure, but it looks like I will just miss it. I will get a bus to Poipet, but as I understand buses and trains which run from Aranyaprathet (other than very early departures) tend to arrive at or around the time of departure ...

Hi I wonder if people can advise. We're coming to Cambodia and spending a week in around Sihanoukville.

Tensions in Cambodia

Posted by ctam2009 on 30/9/2009 at 16:02

I HATE TO BE THE FIRST PERSON ASKING- but we've been told by a fellow traveler that there has been a civil war going on in Cambodia for the past 2 weeks. He also mentioned that there has been a rather large number of tourist casualties. (We know about the ongoing border disputes between Thailand and Cambodia- not worried about that as we will be flying in). I've searched the web pretty hard and checked the travel advisories with no information coming up. I would assume this guys was blowing smok ...

Excellent Accomodations in Siem Reap

Posted by PDX2BKK on 30/11/2009 at 20:38

Headed to Siem Reap? Looking for a fantastic place to stay for $5 to 12 a night? I highly recomend the Golden Takeo Guest house on Wat Bo Rd. This place has nice quiet clean rooms all with private bathrooms, plus Wi-Fi and free use of bicycles for all guests. The owner, Phrom, and all of his staff are very friendly and trust worthy people, and they can book tours of the temples or buses to anywhere in the region for local prices. This place was very good to me, if you are going to Angkor t ...

more places to visit in Cambodia-Kirirom and Kampong Speu

Posted by sayadian on 13/9/2009 at 16:01

When I visited Kirirom National Park I spent two days there and was amazed by the absence of any foreign tourists. I wonder if many on here have been or plan to visit this beautiful part of Cambodia? If they didn't go or are not planning on visiting, is/was it because of the diffculty in making transport arrangements? Again, all of you who visit the 'killing fields' in PP are you aware of a similar site in Kampong Speu with the added attraction of a beautiful riverside location.You can get th ...

A few questions on Cambodia...

Posted by starfish on 25/11/2009 at 22:30

hi! Just a few questions really: 1. Getting from Vientiane to Siem Reap - is it worth going down from southern loas or going through thailand into cambodia? Travelling there last year, i heard that the southern border into Cambodia was a tricky on and so was wondering if it would be easier to get the train to Ubon Ratchathani and then possibly get a bus? We are planning on leaving Vientiane on the 12th but need to be in Cambodia by the 15th, either route is there anywhere that would b ...

My wife and I are planning a 3 week trip to Cambodia in February with our baby who will be 14 months old.

Sihanoukville or Kampot/Kep

I originally planned to go Sihanoukville but the more I read about it the less appealing it becomes. I am looking for a beach destination in Cambodia that has good bars etc but isn't too touristy or built up. Kep is probably the preferred destination at the moment, does this sound like a good idea or shoul I consider somewhere else? ...
