Hi all, I'll be heading to PP with my partner from the 17th to 20th of July and right now I'm still fretting over the accomodation. My budget is abt usd15 and I've short-listed a few places below. 1) Champs Elysees Hotel USD20 (It's got a fancy name really, but i couldnt get any pictures of their rooms besides a very grand-looking lobby) 2) Floating Island Hotel USD 9 ( This is in the Boeng Kak lake area, and some reviews do mention that only the upper rooms are clean) 3) Hope & Anch ...

siem reap to koh chang link

Posted by marianwarren on 2/7/2006 at 15:32

Dear somtam I was flicking through the site and noticed that you had added an official link regarding traveling from siem reap to koh chang but now I can't find it, only the original post from karyn 11/6/2006. I find relocating stuff I've read a little confusing, sometimes I don't know where it was, what message board it was on - maybe an index would be helpful. I know you don't intend to delete posts but is it possible to organise the info presented into a more user friendly format. Trawl ...

Hi everyone, I'll be traveling from Bangkok to Siem Reap by Poi-Pet crossing (solo), around 2-3rd July, though have some question, and greatly appreciate your advice/answers. 1. how is the overland travel in July on this route, (is it bad due to raining season), how long can it take to get to Siem Reap from Poi pet around this season? 2. is it a high risk to travel solo at this road? I'm very novice and this is my first time journey in the region. 3. last but not least, is enyone go ...

Sihanoukville in August

Posted by jdollar on 9/6/2006 at 13:25

I'm just wondering if it's worth it to still head down to Sihanoukville in August. Is the weather/rain that bad? Or is it just for an hour in the afternoons? Are the beaches still worth lying about on? We'll also be heading to beaches on the southeast coast of Thailand - would it be more worth it to just spend more time on these beaches and skip the Sihanoukville beaches? Thanks! ...

Hi, I'm newbie here and will backpack to Cambodia alone from 21st to 30th May which is this coming saturday. Just a few questions to ask even though I've went through most of the msgs posted here.
