Basically returned from Cambodia with about 470,000khr which converts to about £75 [tested 14/09/15] and can't find any banks or services to exchange it here in the UK.

Temples of Angkor on a bicycle?

Posted by johan81 on 13/9/2015 at 12:03

Hi, I am going to Siem Reap in mid November and I am, of course, going to see the Temples of Angkor . I will stay in a hotel in Seim Reap. I do not like participating in group tours, I prefer to discover new places on my own so I can take my time. And I have read a lot and I would like to discover the temple area on a bicyle. Is it possible to hire a bicyle and do it on my own? Is it safe and easy? How long time will it take fron Siem Reap to Angkor Wat by bicyle and is it easy to navigate? ...

Siem Reap guide or solo?

Posted by sunlvr on 3/9/2015 at 19:09

Myself and 2 friends will be in Siem Reap for 3 days in mid October. Would you recommend hiring a guide for Angkor or doing it on our own? I want to be sure to see the well known temples but also some of the off the beaten path ones as well. I'm used to being my own tour guide but with the short time we will be there, we want to make the most of it. Also, looking for suggestions on guesthouses; we have looked online and the choices are endless! Have looked (and liked) Golden Butterfly. Shoul ...
