Landmine Art Exhibition In Phnom Penh

Posted by somtam2000 on 2/10/2009 at 09:50

While Cambodia’s tourism industry is booming, the legacy of Pol Pot's regime still remains in many forms, the most deadly of which are the thousands of landmines still buried in the Cambodian countryside. A new art exhibition that opened Thursday in Phnom Penh showcases the work of 10 Cambodian artists who address the impact of landmines on Cambodia’s past and future.

Fishing in Siem Reap?

Posted by ccalvin09 on 17/9/2009 at 07:49

My husband and I will be in Siem Reap in mid-January checking out Angkor. We're pumped! We want to take one day just to ride bikes into the countryside with a picnic and go fishing and make friends. Is this possible or even legal? Has anyone done this? I don't want to go on a tour or hire a fishing guide. but i would happily hire a local kid to help us buy our gear and find a nice spot. He can even take our fish home to his family. =) thoughts? if fishing doesnt sound like a good ide ...

Help with Khmer-English Translation

Posted by bleucheese on 4/9/2009 at 09:45

I will be traveling to Cambodia for a few weeks and I have a sever nut allergy. I am hoping someone can help translate this: "I cannot eat any nuts especially peanuts and peanut oil. I can die if I eat peanuts or peanut oil. If your kitchen uses peanut oil or peanuts, I should not eat here or there will be an emergency. Thank you." Its actually not quite that severe- I react very quickly, vomit and have a sore stomach for a day, but I would like to avoid that situation as much as possible. I am ...

Bangkok to Siem Reap overland - updated

Posted by somtam2000 on 5/8/2009 at 14:38

Just a quick note that I've updated the Bangkok to Siem Reap overland story, to reflect the change in the road situation there. Story is here: http://www.travelfish.org/feature/71 Basically, the road from Poipet to Siem Reap is now totally sealed and the trip can take as little as one and a half hours by share taxi. This also means it is far easier to do Siem Reap to Bangkok or Siem Reap to Ko Chang in a day. Cheers ...

Cycling in Cambodia

I'm just in the process of sending the newsletter and I remembered the following email we got from last month's effort. I forgot to post it at the time, so here it is: "Early this year, on January 25th (2009), just over one year since I began my travels through Asia, and on the day before Chinese New Year no less, I was cycling around Battambang. As I was about to cross the river by way of an iron bridge, an opening suddenly appeared - probably a negligently exposed part of the structure, whi ...

Battambang

Posted by mattocmd on 29/8/2009 at 21:31

I am looking for the name of a famous temple near Battambang. When I was there in January the local expats were telling me of this temple a few hours away. According to them its "better" than Ankor Wat but no one really knows about it yet. I didn't have the time to check it out and with the crappy maps that they gave me, I just didn't have the energy to find it on my own. They also told me that its in the latest Cambodia lonely planet so now the "secret is out" blah blah blah..... ...

Angkor gets slated

Posted by sayadian on 29/8/2009 at 15:00

ANGKOR, CAMBODIA THE BUILD-UP Angkor boasts some of the most jaw-dropping Buddhist monuments in Southeast Asia. The dozens of spectacular temples here are crowned by the peerless Angkor Wat – the site’s largest monument – in a memorably atmospheric setting among gnarled jungles and glass-like paddy fields. THE REALITY Unfortunately, there’s no escaping the crowds here. The days when Angkor was a remote and challenging destination are sadly long gone. The temples are now firmly ...
