Train from Battambang to Phnom Penh

Posted by Gifta on 15/9/2007 at 01:40

Cheers! We're currently planning our Cambodia trip and are not really pressed for time. Since we both are train "freaks" we were wondering whether any of the forum users have take this insanely slow train from Battambang to Phnom Penh and could give us some info. Is it an option to get off at Pursat if you're bored out of your mind and then to take a bus from there to PP? We would not mind taking the train all the way but you never know ;-) Thanks, Gifta ...

Never give your credit card number to Royal Khmer Airlines

Posted by Guillaume3 on 30/5/2007 at 04:23

Royal Khmer Airlines is not only the airline company that cumulates the highest rate of cancellation, delays and safety issues, of all Asia. It is also a dishonest company that do not hesitate to rip-off its own customers. It sold me two tickets on a flight that did not even fly. They took the money, issued e-tickets for a round trip Seoul to Siem Reap. The return flight just did not fly and they left me without assistance in Siem Reap. And they just turn a deaf ear to my request of refund. For ...

Taxi from PNH to Kampot?

Posted by Kip on 5/9/2007 at 04:04

Hi everyone, I was wondering if someone could give me some advice (i.e. is it possible and, if so, a price range) on getting from Phnom Penh airport to Kampot. I will be arriving at PNH at about 9am and want to head straight to Kampot. Rather than catch a lift back into town to the taxi and bus stand, will I be able to have an airport taxi take me straight there? If so, would someone be willing to give me a ballpark figure for this trip? Thanks a bunch! Kip ...

Overnight transport PP to Siem Reap?

Posted by Yun on 22/8/2007 at 09:29

I have a very tight schedule in Cambodia - arrive PP airport 27/12 0905am and due to leave 30/12 1005am. In this short time, I hope to cover the big sites of Angkor and some of PP also (ambitious...) In order to save on travel time, I was wondering if anyone knew of any overnight travel options between these two places. Bus or taxi - I'm not fussed (as it's cheaper than flying), does anyone know of any that would drive me overnight? Thanks ...

Air Fares

Posted by peachiest99 on 7/8/2007 at 18:01

The Bangkok Airlines Discovery Pass sounds like it is the cheap option for travelling by air between a few destinations, but I am having difficulty finding a travel agent who will arrange it. I have found the following other flights online: Vientiene to Phnom Pehn (AU$285), Phnom Pehn to Siem Reap (AU$90) and Siem Reap to Phuket (AU$250) - all in Jan next year. I was just wondering if these prices sound like they would be the best deals. Lao Airlines looks cheaper but seems a lot of hassle ...

Overstaying Visa

Posted by lexa on 3/8/2007 at 10:47

Does anyone have personal experience of overstaying their visa in Cambodia? I was unable to get a visa extension because I don't have enough pages in my passport, and can't quite get out of the country before the end of my visa (and the U.S. Embassy isn't open on Fridays!!). My overstay will be 5 days (maybe 4 if I can get out of work a bit early). I've seen info on these boards about a $5/day charge, as well as a potential $30 fine. Any corroborating information? Anyone overstay a Cambodian vis ...

What I wish I knew before the BKK - Siem Reap journey....

Posted by sunlover on 27/7/2007 at 10:32

1) There is a bus from Bangkok to the Cambodian border that is faster & more direct than the government bus. The CASINO bus leaves Bangkok just in front of the Lumpini Park (across from the HSBC bank). There are no signs but we asked around and managed to find it. We found out about it from a Chinese traveler, and I'm not sure many foreigners use it. In fact we were the only non-Vietnamese people on board. Everyone was very welcoming, and we even received some ice cold water. The cost was about ...

Visa on arrival at SR airport

Posted by Roving_Roo on 9/7/2007 at 17:34

Hi, It is well known that the border officials at the Poipet / Aranyaprathet border ask for 1,000 Baht rather than the official US$20, but I heard yesterday that upon flying in to Siem Reap airport the officials there also asked someone for 1,000B (refusing US$ as payment). I was under the impression that the airport took US$20 without a problem for the visa on arrival charge. Has anyone else had this happen? Is this a change on the part of the airport or is this the officials pocketing the e ...
