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 ...

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! ...
