Is the Lazy Fish Guesthouse still open?

Posted by Rohan on 15/10/2009 at 17:47

I am travelling to Cambodia in January and looking at accommodation options in Phnom Penh. One of the cheaper options recommended by Travelfish is the Lazy Fish Guesthouse. However, in researching it, I have come accross articles stating that it was closed down in June as part of some political powerplay: It is unclear from this article whether the closure was temporary or whether it has been shut down permanently.

Mondulkiri - Sen Monorom

Posted by Lodestar on 12/10/2009 at 20:58

Hi! In Siem Reap right now and would really want to go to Sen Monorom for the local tribes and villages, falls and elephant rides. Any suggestions and tips? I am aware of the 9+ hour not so comfy bus ride from PP, so wondering, if someone could say if it really is worth the trouble. Considering we would like to take a motorbike around and see the villages and nature and then do a tour in the forests with the elephant. What do you say? Is it possible to cross over to Vietnam without ...

If so would anyone know if the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35/38 is available in PP? I'm n 2 minds as I think of warranty issues and the opportunity to play with the camera and get to know it before I travel. Thanks, Pete ...

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. IMPACT is a celebration of the significant developments in Cambodian mine action since mine clearance activities began i ...

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 ...

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: 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 ...
