blondie travelling alone

Posted by Ankka on 6/4/2006 at 17:46

However, how do I get from there back to Thailand without going back to either Siam Reap or Phnom Penh, preferably to one of the north Islands. I heard there is a boat from but nobady seemed to have heard of it here. Also, I am a bit suspicicous, hardly any web picture of Sihanoukville and the surroumdimg beaches show the beaches, mainly water and ...

Hi everybody! i plan on seeing Angkor around December/January in the coming year, i know it is the 'cold' season and temps will be around 25-35 degrees but does anyone have any personal experiences of what the weather is like around this time, i'm hoping the foliage will be still be quite green as it's after the wet season, is this realistic? Also i'm an avid photographer, just for fun, and plan on catching as much of Angkor on film/memory card as poss, early morning, mid-day and evening at var ...

Overland from Thailand to Siem Reap in rainy season

Posted by exacto on 12/2/2006 at 05:30

Hi. Any advice on trying to make the overland trip from Thailand to Siem Reap during the rainy season? We'll be heading that way in late July. I know roads have improved quite a bit over the last few years, but don't know if it is enough to make a rainy season road trip feasible. We can always fly in and out with Bangkok Airways I guess, but the overland trip seems like much more fun. Please let me know. Thanks, Mark ...
