eVisas for cambodoa and vietnam

Posted by timNZ on 18/10/2007 at 22:07

Hi, I am going to be traveling through Cambodia and Vietnam in Dec this year and was just wondering if anybody has had any problems with the eVisa services these countries offer. 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. ...

Boat from Siem Reap to Battambang

Posted by Ashe88 on 30/12/2007 at 09:44

Hey guys, I was hoping to hear from someone that has done this trip sort-of recently. I'm wondering whether it's advisable to get a share taxi to Battambang and then hire a small wooden boat to check out the scenery or bite the bullet and take the boat (sort of killing 2 birds with 1 stone). I'm just not sure because one second I hear it's fine and totally worth it and the next I hear the boats are death-traps and not worth it. I need the fial word on this one... : ) Anxious to hear from anyon ...

Ok folks, I need your advice

Posted by DTQ on 14/12/2007 at 20:20

Heading from Vietnam to Malaysia. I have one free day. I am going to spend it in Cambodia. I am going to fly in somewhere, spend a day and night, and fly out. Should I spend that day in Siem Reap or Phnom Penh? Another traveler I met on my trip through SE Asia said that Angkor Wats was the highlight of his trip, but I almost feel like if I can only go one place in Cambodia, it should be Phnom Penh. So forgetting cost and airline schedules and all of that (hopefully I can figure that ...

battambang guide

Posted by karentenk on 1/12/2007 at 15:26

just want to recommend my guide, mr. kim, who works from the chaya hotel. he speaks english and he's extremely kind and can really show you rural cambodian life. (or temples or whatever you want, but i wanted a break from temples) he's so honest he even offered to give me the 2000R (50 cents) commission he apparently gets from the bus company for taking foreigners to buy bus tickets--even though he was helping me and them. he took me by motorbike (even including a loaner helmet) out and arou ...

Advice on Cambodia itinerary

Posted by Harry05 on 16/9/2007 at 01:29

In february 2008 I will be travelling in Cambodia for about 3-4 weeks (after about 2 months Thailand/Laos). After Cambodia I will also visit Vietnam (maybe good to know if you want to give me some advice). I am a quite experienced traveller but it’s my first time in SE Asia so it’s always good to get some good and actual advice. I don’t care about luxury (and prefer atmosphere above that): a private, clean and basic room (with fan) will be fine for me. Here’s my global itinerary for Ca ...

Koh Rong

I've seen some beautiful pictures of the beach on Koh Rong and read a couple of blogs describing sleeping on the beach etc. These reports also mentioned accommodation was in the pipe-line, but there doesn't seem to be any or any easy way of getting there. How far away is it from Koh S'dach and would I be able to get there as part of a day trip from that island or is it too far away? Thanks if any one can help me out. ...
