Phonm Penh Highlights

Posted by simonb9 on 23/1/2008 at 19:14

I've booked to stay in Siem Reap for 5 days in total so should see most thing when there. After that i'm going down to Phonm Penh, should be there for about 2 1/2 days in total to see the main sites (maybe more). Got another 3/4 days to kill after that before flying out of Phonm Penh. What should I do with these days ?? Head for the coast or go elsewhere ?? Also does anybody know of any boat trips that go up/down the Mekong Delta from Phonm Penh ?? Regards, Simon ...

Boat: Siem Reap to Phnom Penh and more

Posted by ajschneller on 19/1/2008 at 00:10

FYI: We were just in Siem Reap and the bus took 5-6 hrs to get to Phnom Penh. We talked to an English dude who took the boat, he said the boat took 11 hrs...low water. Also, the Hotel California 2 along the river in Phnom Penh is more of a brothel than a nice hotel, so watch it! The Paragon and the Royal Mekong nearby are nice at $15. Watch out for some of the kid book vendors, some are nice and funny, and others will give you the middle finger or wipe snot on your leg if you don't give ...

10 Day Trip - Spend all in Cambodia or bother going up to Laos??

Posted by capulet85 on 15/1/2008 at 11:49

Hi, My travel mate and i have a ten day trip lined up. We arrive in Phnom Penh Feb 1 2008 (night) and depart from Siem Reap Feb 12 2008 (morning). I am wondering what itineraries we can do during that period. I would love to go to Laos, namely Vientiane and Luang Prabang, but don't know if there is enough time and if we'll end up rushing from place to place. Also, airplane tix from Cambodia to Laos and back seem to be pricey. I checked Lao Airlines, and it comes up to about US$750 for two ...

hotel Phnom Penh

Posted by susan2008 on 3/1/2008 at 10:29

Stayed at the Renaxe hotel on the river right in front of the royal palace and it was stunning in a old world colonial way. The location made it easy to stroll down the promenade at night to soak up the atmosphere. Reccomended. We also ate at the Pacharan tapas bar part of the FCC chain on the waterfront and found it tasteful and the food well done though a little pricey. ...

Cambodia off the beaten track

Posted by rocketgirl on 26/10/2007 at 23:25

I'm going to be travelling around Cambodia and only have about a week and will be stopping at Phnom Penh and Siem Riep. I'm looking for somewhere to get a bit off the beaten track, ideally a homestay. Does anyone know of any? I've found one on this site in Kampong Cham that sounds wicked, but think this might be too out of the way as I'll be entering the country from Chau Doc as part of a 2 day tour from Saigon going straight to Phnom Penh. So to go to Kampong Cham I'd have to then backtrack ...

In theory they sound great, but I am a little apprehensive about sending all of my personal information (passport details, photo, credit card No. etc) electronically to these countries. Do I have any cause for concern?! Any info at all would be much appreciated. Cheers. ...
