From Phnom Penh to Bangkok- southern route

Posted by ripya on 20/11/2008 at 09:26

I need to get to Bangkok from Phnom Penh and was hoping to travel along the southern coast of Cambodia to get there. The only buses from PP to Bkk seem to go through Siem Reap and then cross the border at Poipet. I went this way on my way into Cambodia so was hoping to exit via south and stop off along the way. I know i can get to Sihanoukville from PP but does anyone know if I can then get to Krong Koh Kong or Hat Lek at the Thai border? If I can do this by boat, even better! Then once acros ...

Happy Pizza

Posted by mattocmd on 23/10/2008 at 22:07

Hello, Once in a while I like to enjoy a little mary jane - don't judge me. It's not a regular habit, but when I am on vacation, I often enjoy myself (and drink less alcohol) when I can enjoy some bud. Much to my suprise I have read that they closed down all of the happy pizzas (or at least forced them to take it off of the menus) in Cambodia. Is this being enforced by the authorities? Will I have a hard time scoring some bud in snookville? Thanks a lot! Peace! ...

Tranquility Guesthouse in Sihanoukville was amazing - the rest was horrid

Posted by tlm44 on 19/11/2008 at 10:57

I am not sure about others but what a different experience I had there. I loved loved loved everything I have done so far in Cambodia so figured days at the beach. Well on the way there my camera got stolen 0 my own fault but I did just eat a tarantula.... then upon arriving they would only take me to the GST guesthouse. Figuring I was a dumb tourist they tried to take me for a fortune for everything.... Plus no one had any real interest in a blonde girl... and I had something slipped in a d ...

The question is. anybody knows if this is a real problem? Can They refuse to check-in ...

Just a quick note to let you know we've just about finished adding the Sihanoukville update into the website -- all that's left is the maps -- which will go online this weekend. The update is a complete rewrite of our old coverage and includes the addition of coverage of Otres Beach which was nothing but a strip of sand when we last updated. The area continues to develop at a destination in its own right and we'll be adding some more coverage of the offshore islands shortly now that the mo ...
