Obtaining a 60 day Thai tourist visa in Sihanoukville? And more questions...

Posted by hayleyhobbs on 3/3/2015 at 01:48

Hiya, Wondering if anyone can help - i have tried googling and no luck really. My partner and i are hoping that we can obtain a 60 day Thai visa in Sihanoukville, has anyone ever managed to do this? Also, we have entered Thailand twice in the past 3 months (both on VOA's), will this affect our application? Basically, we had to reenter Thailand on the second VOA - as I broke my collarbone in Siem Reap, and insurance sent us to Bangkok to see the doctor. i don't know if there is a limit as to h ...

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, ...

Community health volunteering

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.

Cambodia website Khmer 440 has a provocative piece titled "7 Ways Cambodia Can Solve its Foreign Dude Problem" The whole piece is well worth a read, but in summary, the suggestions are: 1. Impose gender-based visa fees 2. Ban foreign men from teaching Cambodian children 3. Only give long term visas to foreigners with jobs, businesses, or spouses in Cambodia 4. Interrogate and search single male travellers on arrival 5. Stop giving visas on arrival to Africans 6. Criminalise extramari ...
