Angkor it worth it?

Posted by Noggins on 26/6/2009 at 10:23

Were travellers on a very tight budget and are wondering if the steep Angkor Wat entrance fee is worth it? We are only planning to go for the day but the cost will be a couple of days budget for people think its worth it? Is it really spectacular or just okay? We've been travelling round Asia for about 7 months so seen our fair share of impressive temples etc, so dont want to go unless its really something special- especially as we are just passing through Cambodia to get to Laos. Thou ...

Bangkok to Siem Reap by Rent-A-Car - Is this possible and feasible?

Posted by sriknine on 2/8/2009 at 17:05

Hi, Last I was in Thailand in 2005 Id rented a car from Avis and driven down to Rayong & Pattaya. Found the flexibility to my liking and loved the wll-made roads. Im planning another trip to Thailand, and this time wanted to visit Angkor Wat. Given the road from Poipet to Siem Reap is now laid out, would renting a car and driving from Bangkok to Siem Reap be a feasible option? What are the downsides (Im assuming there would be some)? Is Cambodia 'safe' to drive without a local on board? ...

Trekking in Southern Cambodia

Posted by womble86 on 13/7/2009 at 20:26

Been planing my SE Asia trip for a while now and stumbled across this magnificent website. Wish I'd found it earlier! Can anyone recommend any decent trekking in southern Cambodia? I plan to get there in mid November, go straight to Ankor and then go down south to Sihanoukville to chill for a few weeks and would like to take in some of the scenery instead of just lying about in a hammock! What I am after is something a little more intense than the usual half day walks. Maybe 4 - 5 day ov ...

confusion about the e-visa

Posted by buecax on 16/7/2009 at 00:18

on the visa page it says: "EVisas are only valid for entry into Cambodia via the international airports at Phnom Penh and Siem Reap and via the land crossings at Ko Kong, Poipet and Bavet. You cannot use an eVisa to enter Cambodia at other crossings." and on the border crossings page it says: "To Laos, you only have one option, the Veun Kham/Dom Kralor crossing (but note your Laos visa on arrival is NOT available at this crossing). ... Cambodian visa on arrival is available at all these ...

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 ...

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'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 ...
