Travel in early September

Posted by smsclaydog on 7/3/2008 at 09:22

We are thinking of going to Cambodia - PP and Siem Riep - and Vietnam - Saigon - in early September. No way around it, it is just when we have the time to go. I know this is heart of monsoon season. Are we going to be able to do anything except huddle in our hotel rooms or is it really not that bad in early September? ...

luggage storage at the airport?

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. ...
