CF Mekong - boat ride between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh

Posted by travelingchinese on 6/7/2009 at 07:46

Has anyone tried the one day "CF Mekong" boat trip between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh ? I have read hat the express boat ride route between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh isn't worth it anymore - becauase it's expensive and the view is not very good for most part of the journey. However, CF Mekong seems to have a full day itinerary between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, stopping at different villages along the way. Has anyone tried it? Is it a tourist trap? ...

Sihanoukville for solo woman?

Posted by curstilace on 30/6/2009 at 13:25

Would you recommend Sihanoukville for a 26-yo woman traveling alone? I was thinking of stopping there for about 5 days to hang out and learn to dive. Have heard some good things and not so good things about it though. I would go to one of the Thai islands but they're out of the way from my main destinations which are Laos and Cambodia. I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!! xx ...

How many times can I enter Cambodia on a 30 day tourist visa within a 6 month period?

Posted by annarose on 1/7/2009 at 13:52

Hello, Tried searching for an answer to my question but couldn't find it... I'm meeting up with a friend in Cambodia in August for a few weeks and then going to Thailand for a month or so before returning to Cambodia in October. I may then go to Laos and return back to Cambodia for a third time. Is there a limit on the number of times you can enter the country on a 30 day tourist visa within a 6 month period? Or a limit on the amount of time you can spend there within a 6 month period? ...

cambodia in december - tentative plan

Posted by pamjane on 25/6/2009 at 01:29

I'm planning a trip for my girlfriend and me through Thailand>Laos>Cambodia from November through early January. We won't have much time in Cambodia, so I think we'll have just a few stops there so that we can get to know each location a bit. I'd be thankful for any input y'all have on the prospective journey: Day 1: fly from Pakse to Siem Reap (I'd originally had the idea to go by land and visit Ban Lung--Yak Lom is a dream--but it seems almost impossible to head that way and do the ...

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 ...

Do Some Good While In Cambodia!

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 ...
