3. Extension of a Regular Visa now takes up to 7 (seven!) days. First-hand experience, anyone? ...
I've been reading recently that a lot of places now accept USD and the Riel. Any suggestions on what currency is better to use? If using USD should I mainly bring small bills? I have heard no torn or marked up bills will be accepted. We will be going into Laos as well, does anyone know if its the same there? TIA ...

We are a family of five and new to overseas travel. So we decided our first adventure would be Cambodia as my husband has recently visited the country with work. The kids are 15,13 & 11. We fly into Siem Reap, and over 2 weeks would like our trip to go something like this SR - Preah Vihear-Stung Treng- Kratie-Sen Monorom - SR. Can we just hire a new car/driver at each of these towns/cities? or should we hire a driver/car in SR and pay them to do the whole trip? We just don't wa ...
The Virachey National Park staff has created a new trek to the little known Mera Mountain-Yak Yeuk Grasslands area up near the Lao border. This trek begins in Voen Sai district in a Kavet village on the O Lai Lai River and takes you up to the border mountains where only one tour group has ever been (that group consisting of myself and birder Howie Nielsen in 2013). If you want to get way off the beaten path with incredible local guides who know all the stories, all the trails, all the animals, a ...

I am planning a trip to Cambodia for early September - as of now I'm traveling solo (female) and even though I've done a fair amount of this in the past, it's been a while since I struck out on my own so I'm trying to decide between my own itinerary and something like joining an Intrepid tour.
There's a tour that hits most of the places on the itinerary I put together (see below). I've priced out my accommodations and internal travel (I'm not on a super-tight budget, but not going high-end eithe ...
Basically returned from Cambodia with about 470,000khr which converts to about Â£75 [tested 14/09/15] and can't find any banks or services to exchange it here in the UK. I'm looking for anyone planning to travel to Cambodia that would like some cheap Riel before they leave. I'm happy to take Â£60 for it, just want to get rid of it now. Happy to mail it to anywhere in the UK.
If you're interested please private message me. ...

We are planning to arrive Cambodia on 17th Sept. My question is, can we stay upto 30 days from the date of entry?

I am going to Siem Reap in mid November and I am, of course, going to see the Temples of Angkor . I will stay in a hotel in Seim Reap.
I do not like participating in group tours, I prefer to discover new places on my own so I can take my time.
And I have read a lot and I would like to discover the temple area on a bicyle. Is it possible to hire a bicyle and do it on my own? Is it safe and easy?
How long time will it take fron Siem Reap to Angkor Wat by bicyle and is it easy to navigate? ...
Can anyone recommend me the best way to travel from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap. I have heard that the boat can be dangerous and not much fun, although this was original my preferred choice. Would anyone think bus or taxi would be a better option.
I've booked a 2 day private tour of Angkor Wat with a highly rated tour guide on Tripadvisor. I'm a solo traveller and needed a good tour for MA research but it'd be great to find more people to join. The tour company is AseanAngkor tours, look on the website if you want to see the itinerary or you can pm me. The cost is 150USD total for 2 days plus site fees but we can share the cost with more people. ...
I have 2 weeks in Cambodia in February 2016 beginning and ending in PP due to flights booked. This is my 3rd visit and I really want to go somewhere new but finding it difficult to find somewhere which does not involve excessive amounts of travel. I have visited SR, Battambang , Kep and Kampot on previous trips and loved all of them. I am into history food and nature but do not want to (and am too unfit for) excessive amounts of walking or trekking. Thinking Paillin, or Sen Monorom, ...
