Reserve ahead?

Posted by Olivcar on 13/4/2015 at 10:07

I am planing a trip to Thailand and Cambodia for January and February 2016. We are looking for flashpacker to midrange guesthouses or hotels. I have looked around on Agoda and and so many of my choices say "Not available for those dates." (ie; Kampot) I know it is high season but is it possible that these places are already booked up for next year? Is it necessary or advisable to make reservations ASAP? I traveled in Thailand many years ago and it was fine to arrive and jus ...

Hi guys! I am at a complete loss. I have just arrived in Siem Reap and I have no idea where to start. I have a main stream guide book on Cambodia, but it feels outdated (2012) and unclear. I have searched the web and Travelfish and I am at lost as too: 1. How many days? 3 or 5? i guess it is up to us, but we have the time. Is it worth getting the full pass? 2. Getting a tuk tuk. What are the on going rates. In my hotel i get a quote that just seems outrageous. 3. How to plan. What to see fi ...

Big treks in Virachey on offer

Posted by gregmccann1 on 16/2/2015 at 08:28

If anyone is up for a 12-day trek to the Yak Yeuk Grasslands (not to be confused with the popular 7-day Veal Thom Grasslands trek) to help check out camera traps in April, there is quite an adventure in store for you. My organization, Habitat ID, recently launched two camera-trapping expeditions in Virachey this year, with the first group deploying cameras in Yak Yeuk. They found an elephant wallow high in the mountains near Laos, saw a pack of 10 dhole, saw a very rare pangolin (most are caught ...

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, ...
