2 full days in Siem Reap - do we need more?

Posted by azgrl on 28/5/2008 at 06:49

We have a Cambodia/Laos trip planned for 14 days in July. We’re starting off with 2 full days in Siem Reap with a evening in the front and morning at the end of the 2 days. Any opinions on whether that’s enough time in Siem Reap before going to Laos? We can change some of the other following plans. REP to LPQ – 1 day, Catch a boat to HOE – 2 days, Head off to the Gibbon Exp. – 2 days, Travel to LNT – 1 day, Make our way to LPQ – 4 days, Spend a few days there before dep ...

Honest local guide in PP and Siem Reap?

Posted by sputnik0 on 6/6/2008 at 10:39

Is there a way to set up a permanent thread for local guide suggestions? My two girl friends and I will be traveling to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap this June from Saigon. Should we go to PP or SR first? Is there anyone who lives or has lived in these cities who can recommend an honest local guide who speaks English to show us around, preferably with transportation too? We are planning to spend 4 days in both cities total. So maybe 3 days in Angkor and surrounding area and 1 day in PP? Is ...

Posted by bundanger on 22/5/2008 at 10:19

Does anybody know if there is a place inside PP or even SR airport to store large suitcases? I've heard that there might be, but i can't find any conformation, and i really do not want to drag two fifty pound suitcases with me all over Cambodia. I'm only going to be there for two weeks. If there is, does anyone know approximate costs or where in the airport it is. Thanks in advance ...

Cambodia Itinerary

Posted by CJHorn85 on 12/5/2008 at 20:12

Hey all, I will be travelling to SEA from mid-July to mid September (just under 2 1/2 months). I have posted on Lonely Planet forums, but this site appears to be the best of the best when it comes to SEA, so I thought I would try and get some opinions on here as well. Since this is the Cambodia destination part, I thought I would stick to that, and post my itinerary up for the other countries in the relevant sections. My itinerary for Cambodia is very general, as I have limited time here. ...
