Motorbike rental in Siem Reap

Posted by lucasan on 18/1/2017 at 20:00

Lost second cop you if e-visa while in cambodia

Posted by Logienufc on 6/1/2017 at 06:16

Hi, We got a travel company to arrange our Vietnam visas. We left the second printed copy of our Cambodian e-visa in the passport and when we got them back they weren't there anymore. Does anyone know if this will be a problem when leaving Cambodia or will printing another copy be ok. I think that there was a stamp on it but all it said was 'used'. Any help greatly appreciated.

A must-seen to visit in Kampong Cham

Posted by Marine on 21/12/2016 at 04:35

Hi there ! Travelling in Cambodia, I went to Kampong Cham to visit the area. I would like to share with you an amazing place to spend time for 2 or 3 days. I had the chance to discover randomly this place and extend my stay there. I think this place deserves to be shared and known to give the opportunity to the other travelers to enjoy their time in Kampong Cham as much as I did thanks to OBT. Indeed, it is a NGO called OBT (standing for Organization for Basic Training). Near Kampong Cham at ...

2 week itinerary advice

Posted by adlis on 26/11/2016 at 16:56

My partner and I are travelling to Cambodia for 2 weeks from New Zealand and have put together an itinerary and was curious to know peoples thoughts. We had originally planned a more relaxed itinerary without Mondulkiri, but thought it sounded really great and perhaps worth squeezing it in - but that said, we don't want the trip to feel rushed. Thanks in advance! Siem Reap - 3 nights (23-26) Shuttle/private cab to Battabang Battabang - 2 nights (26-28) Drive back to Siem Reap and catch ...

Kratie in March

Posted by caroc on 1/11/2016 at 09:57

I'm spending a few weeks in Cambodia (second visit) in March 2017 and I'm planning to take the bus from Phnom Penh to Kratie for a few days. I'd like to make it up to Kampi in the hope of seeing a dolphin or two. I know there is good info on this website, although I wonder why they say to "leave the camera behind" re dolphins. Is this a question of just "being there in the moment"? Has anyone had recent experience of Kratie town and province and would there be any di ...
