From Siem Reap via Battambang to Koh Chang

Posted by mjldsk on 6/1/2009 at 04:43

Dear travellers, I am planning to travel from Siem Reap to Koh Chang with a stopover (1 day) in Battambang. This route seems very attractive to me. I am planning to cross the border at Pailin. As I am in Cambodia for the first time, I would be grateful for any advices. Could you please give me some hints concerning adequate transportation (Bus or Taxi)? Is it possible to complete the route from Battambang to Koh Chang in one day? Thank you very much in advance. ...

Hope this is acceptable. My daughter lost an Olympus Camera with 2GB memory card during a school excursion in CAMBODIA late January 2009. Photos include Vietnam, and Cambodia. The usual stufff - tunnels, killing fields, temples etc, but also some schools, lots of shots of her school friends, and some holding tarantulas. Would love to have a miracle and have someone find the camera - the memory card is all we really want. Stranger things have happened!! Here's hoping. ...

Early morning taxi from Siem Reap to Poipet

Posted by amalie on 18/1/2009 at 07:08

Hi Guys, We'll be travelling the SR - Poipet - BKK route in a few weeks and want to make it to Bangkok as early as possible - by lunchtime would be perfect! Does anyone know what the earliest possible time a taxi will leave for Poipet from Siem Reap (we don't want to do the trip in the dark, and I don't think the taxi drivers would want to either!). I'm going to make a guess that it's about 5am? Anyone done this trip early? How much did the taxi cost? Thanks for the help :) Amalie x ...
