Laos or Cambodia

Posted by gromi1705 on 14/7/2008 at 15:10

Want to travel to either country mid october for 3 weeks. As I do not want to rush and really get a good impression (mainly traveling for landscape and people)I am thinking of either doing Northern Laos or Cambodia (Siem Reap, Battanbang, Pnom Penh, Kratie and Kep, (Ratankiri?)). Any advices which country to choose? Suggested itineris welcome. I might have the chance to add 1 week for beach but Sihanoukville doesn't sound to inviting (prefer the quiet) ...

HCMC to PP

Posted by mattconn on 23/7/2008 at 14:02

Hi All My wife and I are planning to travel from HCMC to Phnom Penh via the Mekong Delta in mid October. We're undecided if we'll do an organised tour or DIY, but we know we'd like to travel at least part of the way by boat. My question is: Are there any issues with river flooding at this time of year? Has anyone experienced the Mekong at this time of year, and what were your experiences like if so? Thank you all for your help! ...

Getting from BKK to Siem Reap: Would it make more sense to 1. Overland to Aranyaprathet to Poipet to Siem Reap (as per travelfish artcile http://www.travelfish.org/feature/71) or 2. Fly BKK to Phomn Penh on Air Asia then bus (or taxi?) to Siem Reap? How long would each option take? How much would each cost? Thanks! ...

Hi I will be travelling to Cambodia and Thailand next January. I trevelled from Siem Reap to Poipet by Bus/taxi in 2006, and the road was pretty rough and dusty. Just wondering if there have been any improvements to the road? An alternative would be to travel north and cross the border at O Smack, which is closer to where I am going in Thailand (Buri Ram). Anyone have info on this option. ...

My cousin from London and I, from San Francisco are leaving for Cambodia next Thursday (Expect to arrive 17th). I am traveling for a total of 17 days but intend to only dedicate 10 days in Cambodia.

Looking for one more place and would love to hear your-must-not-miss city. We're both from the city so would like a plac ...

no more e-visas????

Posted by Window_seat on 2/7/2008 at 20:13

I purchased a Cambodian e-visa a couple weeks ago. Plan to enter Cambodia on Sunday. I just received an email from 'e-Visa' stating that "On the 28th of June 2008, the official Cambodia e-Visa website was removed without any prior notice and reasons given." As far as I can tell, the evisa website is indeed gone. Has anyone tried to enter Cambodia with an e-Visa in the last few days? I'm hoping the worst case scenario is that I'll just have to buy another visa at the border.... ...

New Museum in Siem Reap and more

Posted by efkphd on 29/1/2008 at 06:03

Just returned from Siem Reap. Check out the new museum, it's truly terrific. Entrance fee is $12, but worth it. Might be a useful stop before visiting Ankgor Wat. Siem Reap is a surprise, lots to do in town with a vigorous tourist scene near the market; streets and alleys closed off to traffic and filled with open air restaurants. We stayed at the mid-range City River hotel in a quiet location within 10 min. walk to the market. Small restaurants next door were excellent and inexpensive. Best tim ...
