Siam Reap to Laos..!

Posted by Noggins on 25/6/2009 at 19:33

We plan to cross from Cambodia to Laos in the next couple of days, and are currently in Siam Reap, having come from Phnom Penh . We've just looked in to getting to the Laos border and have been told by a couple of agencies there are no buses from here to there, or to Stung Treng. Has anyone done this crossing from Siam Reap? We've been told we might have to go back to Phnom Penh and get a bus from there but we really don't want to do that and flying is out of the question on our budget. Were th ...

Worth it to go during the wet season?

Posted by scafire_jesse on 5/5/2009 at 00:51

I'm looking at heading to Cambodia in early September - during the wet season. I wanted to avoid some of the crowds and I don't mind the mud and the damp, but is it going to be worth it for a little over a 2 week trip? I'd like to see Phnom Phen, Kampot, Battdambang and Siem Reap/Angkor. Thanks! ...

Hello, My name is Michael and Im a teacher in New York City. I have been working with the wealthiest kids on the planet who have everything and all my life I have always wanted to experience working with kids who have nothing. I went to Cambodia and fell in love, came back to NYC and started my own charity. I went back again in March to do more research, teach, and help. There are so many good people helping these kids but still more needs to be done. Starting a charity is not easy either and ...

Flying Cambodia - Laos

Posted by remf on 16/6/2009 at 16:46

Hi all, I'm going to be in Cambodia in late July and would like to venture into Laos. Given time will be tight, flying there seems to be the best option. I've had a look at the suggested Laos Airline websites, but neither seem particularly clear, and I'm not confident of booking tickets through there if I'm honest. I have 2 questions; 1) What are the current prices for flying from Cambodia to Laos - not too worried about destination/arrival as I know it's fairly well serviced, but if ...

VISA ALERT: Cambodia traps Vietnamese nationals

Posted by KanGad on 6/6/2009 at 23:30

The Cambodian government has trapped hundreds perhaps thousands of Vietnamese nationals in Cambodia, refusing to let them leave. In the past Vietnamese residents in Cambodia have ordinarily only been required Cambodian visas to enter and exit the country. As of last week, those visas have all been canceled unannounced and en masse and Cambodian immigration is refusing to issue exit visas or provide any means whereby they may leave the country legally. Vietnamese residents trying to leave the cou ...

Poipet to Siem Reap (information on taxi transportation)

Posted by farsidetravel on 31/5/2009 at 18:21

I heard the road is now completed so travel from Poipet to Siem Reap is easier. The main concern I have is the taxi transportation. I heard that it is possible to avoid the taxi mafia (which charges $60) and try to find a non-mafia (non-association) taxi. I heard the rate is around $30. I read that after immigration and customs I can just walk down the street and find my own taxi. But the problem is that the taxi mafia will follow me and argue with anyone I talk with. This doesn't ...
