Interactive Cambodia weather map

Posted by somtam2000 on 23/3/2008 at 19:25

Ok, I admit it, I've had a few days off, painted the house, thrown up the feet a bit, but now I'm back on deck! I've just added in an interactive weather map for Cambodia (interactive in that you mouse over different areas for the weather in each region). It was a bit of a struggle to get accurate data for Cambodia (they've had bigger issues than measuring rainfall over the last decade or so) and on a couple of occasions I found myself going back to pre-global-warming 1954 data collected by ...

Svey Rieng - Toss out your Lonely Planet guide

Posted by allen_moretsky on 8/3/2008 at 10:23

My first trip to Cambodia I had no guide and so hitch-hiking around the country I stayed with Cham people on the coast in their homes and never ever saw another tourist. This time I had a Travel Guide and ended up in Sihanoukville where I counted no less then 20 beach verndors per hour trying to sell me various items. It was not until I decided to go to Svey Rieng which Lonely Travel pans, that I got a fresh breath of Cambodia. Not that this place is heaven, but it is not so touristed as seems t ...
