Koh Rong or Koh Rong Samloem (or Koh Thmei)???

Posted by alex_stein on 21/1/2015 at 02:24

So I was pretty sure about Koh Rong (I was looking at the Monkey Island bungalows) but it seems I haven't done enough research and that maybe Koh Rong Samloem (or Koh Thmei) could also be good options. Obviously looking for the most beautiful place to be for a few days, and my girlfriend will want to do diving, so that will be a factor. It would be good if there are some other activities like trekking. I just need a place to sit and read and write. Any experiences to share? Which is quieter, ...

Community health volunteering

Posted by DrDreidal on 7/12/2014 at 10:32

Hi all, This is my first post here and I'm excited to have joined such a lovely travel community! My girlfriend and I recently booked tickets for a 6 month trip through SEA. We want to spend about one month volunteering in Cambodia. We want to be able to add something to the community where we will be staying, instead of potentially taking away opportunities from the local populace. I'm very interested in community health and health disparities and am looking to hopefully help implement new ...

I am visiting Siem Reap for 5 nights next month with my mother and could really use some advice about where to stay and what to reserve ahead of time.

Should I try to reserve any day tours, activities (bike tours, cooking classes, etc), or tuk-tuk drivers ahead or just wait until I arrive? I have done a huge amount of reading about areas and different hotels I'm having a really hard time making a final decision. ...
