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?

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 ...

Cambodia Itinary With Baby

Posted by NancyNoo on 23/11/2009 at 15:22

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

When we showed our itinery to a friend who also has a one year old and has visited Kep/Kampot two years ago she was very critical, saying that the itin ...

Sihanoukville or Kampot/Kep

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? ...

Hi all, On the streets of Battambang today, I spoke to a guy called Narath inviting me over to visit his project called Bricks for Cambodia.

In case of positive feedback, I'm sure to make a donation. Thanks in advance, any feedback is greatly a ...
