bordercrossing from cambodia to laos

Posted by hycoscine on 3/5/2006 at 19:55

i'm planning a trip to cambodia and laos this summer. but i'm starting to get worried about the bordercrossing from cambodia to laos. is it possible to get into laos that way? i've talked to the lao embassy in sweden and they said that the border was only for locals and not for internationell use. do they say that just to be on the safe side or is it true? i've read about people crossing the other way, from laos to cambodia, but nothing about going from cambodia to laos... ...

Phnom Penh to Battambang

Posted by icet2sugars on 30/4/2006 at 11:18

Does anyone know whether there are any buses leaving Phnom Penh for Battambang at around noon (if not later)? Hoping this is not too ambitious, I'm hoping I can somehow get to Battambang after arriving in Phnom Penh airport at 9.30am. From what I've gathered, all buses leave in the early morning. After going through custom/money exchanging etc, I don't think I can get to the bus centre until noon! Any info would be appreciated! I'd try to avoid the shared taxi option if possible! As I'll ...

atm/ debt card

Posted by manojdephoto on 14/2/2006 at 10:35

Hello, I will be flying into Bangkok on 20/2 from Chicago and then travel by land to Siem Reap. I have an ATM/ debt card that has the VISA logo on it. I know that ANZ Bank in Phnom Penh will accept ATM cards that draw on foreign banks accounts. If I take a cash advance using my ATM/ debt card, can I use other banks in Cambodia besides ANZ? Is this equivalent to using a regular ATM card at a bank? Thanks, Manoj ...

blondie travelling alone

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

Hi All, I'm dreaming of travelling in Cambodia, and I would like to alone. People tend to think I'm nuts, being young small female and all.. So I'm really asking your opinion here. How safe is Cambodia outside the hotel areas (which I'd like to avoid)? I'm not very experienced traveller, but I do have my brains attached (or so I think..). Got to admit though, because of my looks I certainly pass neither as a local nor as a karate champ. Actually what I'm mostly afraid of is that while pl ...

I am currently in Siem Reap, planning to go to Phonom Penh tomorrow. I heard Sihanoukville offers great beaches, so this is going to be my next stop. 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 ...
