Siem Reap to Hanoi--time crunch

Posted by patrickb on 13/4/2007 at 16:21

I'll have to go from Siem Reap to Hanoi so I can catch a flight out of Hanoi. I just checked Vietnam Airlines; their flight is $200. Though I'm reluctant to pay that much, I'll probably end up going with it because I have no other option at this point. Does anyone know if you can get from S. Reap to Hanoi by bus or train in a day or two? (I realize they're very far, just checking). THANKS!! ...

Phnom Pehn to HCMC

Posted by longleat on 20/4/2007 at 05:25

What are the options to get from Phnom Phen to HCMC? Besides flying, is there a bus that you can take all the way without changing at the border? How long does it take? How much does it cost? Would a taxi be able to take you all the way or do you have to find another taxi and negotiate the rate from the border to HCMC? Any idea of cost of taxi? Many thanks! ...

Anyone in Phnom Penh that want's to visit a wildlife preserve on Sunday?

Posted by geoffraffe on 8/3/2007 at 19:32

Hi, I'm in Phnom Penh at the minute and want to go to a wildlife preserve with my partner on Sunday. The trouble is the minimum for a group is 3 so we need at least 1 more. The trip is run by 2 girls and they take you through this animal preserve in a jeep. This place houses animals safely and most of the animals have been saved from illegal black market trading. i.e. this isný some cheep trek where you ride and elephant knowing that when it's closing time the elephant's beaten by the owner ...

Fly from Sihanoukville to Seim Reap saves time.

Posted by peterlaqua on 8/4/2007 at 15:44

We flew from Sihaboukville to Seim Reap on PMT Air. The flight took 50 minutes and was US$79 each. Flights go three times a week and this saves a nine hour bus trip via Phnom Phen. We found a gorgous hotel(Bopha Angkor) set in tropical gardens in Seam Reip. Starting at $48 a night, worth even one night for those on a tight budget. For those that have some money to burn check out the bungalow for $140. Its paradise! ...

Good Morning from Phnom Penh. I'm the author of a CD containing detailed maps of the whole of Cambodia and 19 main photogalleries containing a wide variety of images of Cambodia.

Visa to Cambodia-overland from Laos

Posted by pfkutasi on 8/3/2007 at 19:46

Hello everyone, Just a question. How easy is it to get a visa if you are travelling overland from southern Laos into northeastern Cambodia? As it is not an official border crossing, I hear that you cannot get one on arrival. Are there places near the 4000 Islands that can issue one? I am looking at spending 30 days in Cambodia by the end of this month and I am not looking to eat into a visa that I may have to get in Vientiane (then have to extend it). I appreciate any answers y ...
