New places to visit in Cambodia

Posted by Bridgequeen on 7/9/2015 at 09:01

Hi I have 2 weeks in Cambodia in February 2016 beginning and ending in PP due to flights booked. This is my 3rd visit and I really want to go somewhere new but finding it difficult to find somewhere which does not involve excessive amounts of travel.

I am into history food and nature but do not want to (and am too unfit for) excessive amounts of walking or trekking. Thinking Paillin, or Sen Monorom, ...

Siem Reap guide or solo?

Posted by sunlvr on 3/9/2015 at 19:09

Myself and 2 friends will be in Siem Reap for 3 days in mid October. Would you recommend hiring a guide for Angkor or doing it on our own? I want to be sure to see the well known temples but also some of the off the beaten path ones as well. I'm used to being my own tour guide but with the short time we will be there, we want to make the most of it. Also, looking for suggestions on guesthouses; we have looked online and the choices are endless! Have looked (and liked) Golden Butterfly. Shoul ...

Hello, my husband and I are avid travellers and have been incredibly lucky to see a lot of the world. Now we have a baby girl and this has thrown a magical twist to our usual wonderlust ways. We are pretty sure that our first stop in Cambodia will be Siem Reap and at least 3 days exploring Angkor Wat and the area. Then, we were thinking of just one other destination, and this is where I need your help! Should we head to Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville or Battambang? Or somewhere else entirely ...

Article on Virachey National Park, and more

Posted by gregmccann1 on 9/7/2015 at 02:08

I just published an article about VNP on and I thought it might help nudge those who are pondering a trek in Virachey to head up to Ratanakiri. I've also been getting emails from people about how to arrange a trek in the Park, and my advice is to "friend" Leam Sou on Facebook (you can call him 'Sou'). You can get everything sorted with him and he is by far and away the best VNP guide. Some other things related to Virachey: a video compilation that I made off just one camer ...

Orphanage volunteering in Cambodia - to do or not to do?

Posted by susanne60 on 19/6/2015 at 03:04

I've heard a lot about how evil these so-called "orphanages" in Cambodia really are, such as hiring local kids to pose as hapless orphans while leaving them in awful living conditions. Only one third of orphanages in Phnom Penh are permitted by the government to operate, or so they say. The question here is, if one really wants to volunteer in an orphanage in Cambodia, how can one possibly find an ethical one? Has anyone volunteered in Cambodia before? How was your experience? ...

organised tour to angkor wat from ko chang

Posted by meldor on 14/6/2015 at 04:08

Has anyone done an organised tour from Ko Chang to Angkor Wat? There are a couple on offer and I'm interested in feedback. I am staying in Ko Chang in October for 18 days and thought this would be a good opportunity to do a few days at Angkor Wat. I'm loathe to cross the border independently as I will be travelling with a child and dont really want the hassle. Any information and advice greatly appreciated. ...

I am planning on entering Cambodia from Thailand and spending a couple of days in Siam Reap and then PP and then heading to Vietnam for a week. I will then be travelling back via Cambodia to Thailand. I am aware I can get an e visa, but it is only for one entrance apparently. so does this meant when I leave Cambodia for a few days I will have to get another visa to transit back acros ...
