Rach Gia to Phnom Penh

Posted by aussie_jase on 8/9/2008 at 16:09

Is the border crossing at Ha Tien operating? Are we better to head up to Chau Doc and cross over into Cambodia from there? If ...

rounding up a posse to go to cambodia

Posted by yoooohooo on 8/8/2008 at 22:23

Hi my name is Ian Hawkes I'm 30 years old and I'm looking to join or round up a posse of people to go to Cambodia. The goal being to find a great beach location and instead of paying $10+ per night we all chip in and rent or buy a house or piece of land and we develop it ourselves. Now this makes sense for me because I'm gonna stay for about 6 months maybe more. At the moment I'm just going to chill and visit a few temples etc using the beach spot as base camp. I'm thinking about flying out ...

Sihanoukville beaches

Posted by CJ79 on 9/8/2008 at 01:38

I'm sending this message to any of you that might be considering a trip to Cambodia. I was there for more than a week. Siem Reap was interesting and I had a great stay at EarthWalkers Hostel, which is run by some great people from Norway. I also went to the capital and saw the Killing Fields. Next, I went to the beach in Sihanoukville. At the beach I stayed at Coasters. It was okay, but rained countinuously. When it stopped raining on Tuesday around 3:30pm I took a walk going East along the beac ...

organised trips - worth the money?

Posted by abs197 on 21/7/2008 at 19:07

Hi, Im planning to go to cambodia to do some volunteer work with an NGO for around 6 months (Oct 08-March 09) and then travel throught SE Asia for around 2-3months. I am looking at going on organised tours through STA travel or intrepid, partly because I am travelling on my own so thought this would be a good way of meeting people and safer than travelling alone. I am looking at paying around about £400 (+food) for 20 or so days travel on a "basic" tour. I wonder if anyone has any advice on ...
