Sihanoukville to Thai border

Posted by drtjam on 22/9/2006 at 18:13

Hi I am hoping to travel into Thailand from Sihanoukville in the next couple of days. Just wondering if anyone has any experiance with going into Thailand this way? Is the sea particularly rough at this time of year? I have heard a few stories about the boats not really being seaworthy...but on the other hand the road is meant to be terrible. Is it really? Any help would be gratefully appreciated Thanks Tom ...

Poipet Border Crossing

Posted by Saul on 26/9/2006 at 16:49

hey there I am planning to come to Cambodia from Thailand in February 2007, and am having difficulty in deciding whether to attempt the famous (or infamous?) border crossing through Poipet. I have checked out the section on the journey on talesofasia, which was really helpful, however I'm still not sure whether to try it or not. The reasons for my apprehension are: first time in SEA, first time backpacking in general (male, 21 years of age), will be alone, etc. etc. Part of me really wants ...

About weed...not 4 everyone but a concern of mine nonetheless

Posted by Benjamin on 10/9/2006 at 21:25

Hi all, Where can I find a beautiful, tranquil quiet setting with access to weed? My post may be offensive to some and puzzling to others but I feel this is the best forum to pose it. I used this messageboard for my recent trip to Thailand and found the help I recieved to be better than I could have hoped for. I currently live in a repressive East Asian society with no access to marijuana and am longing for the liberal hop-head society that I left behind in Canada. This winter I wil ...

Cambodia - December - 10 days

Posted by fire_lily81 on 23/9/2006 at 19:47

Hi, I have only 10 days in Cambodia and planned to start from Sieam Ream off to Battambang, Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh. Is there any direct bus from Battambang to Sihanoukville?

Should I go to Kratie for its famous dolphin instead? And I also heard that there is sort of 'theft season' in Cambodia. Does D ...

Hello, Travelling FROM Si Phan Don in Laos we would like to spend time in Phenom Penh, Siem Reap and perhaps Sihanoukville if we have the time. We will most likely fly back to BKK from PP (Air Asia doesn't fly from SR) instead of travelling overland back to BKK (seems like it would take 1 full day). What would be the best route to accomplish this? Have considered 1) overland thru Stung Treng-Kratie (4000 islands to PP in one day) and 2) travelling back to Pakse and flying to Siem Reap --fo ...
