Phnom Penh Airport to Hotel Options & Siem Reap to Southern Laos options

Posted by laos20140469 on 25/4/2014 at 06:29

Hello all, New member here and first time visiting Laos and Cambodia. Will post this thread in both forums as they relate to both areas. Pls can anyone advise best/safest/cheapest way to get from airport to hotel? I've read there is a prepay system for either taxi or tuk tuk - are these drivers quite safe to use or would I be better booking a hotel pick-up. Also accommodation for first night or so - around £10 - £15 a night - safe and central, but not too noisy - single room? Pl ...

Meet people in Siem Reap.

Posted by Lorena86 on 30/3/2014 at 12:03

Hi, I am a girl in my late twenties, and will be traveling alone to Thailand-Cambodia on early June. For the first leg of my trip I am thinking on staying on Siem Reap for a week or so, visiting temples, daytrips, etc. Any recommendations on a guesthouse/hotel that will allow me to meet people? I don't want to stay in a 20+ bed hostel, but I also don't want to stay on a place where I won't meet anybody, or a place for couples&families. Thanks in advance!! ...

Best places to meet people?

Posted by Chewy1 on 5/2/2014 at 05:37

Hi guys, I'm going to Cambodia in a couple of weeks and for the first time I will be travelling alone. I'm a guy in my early thirties and pretty easy going. I've been before with friends but only made it to Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville due to time restraints. This time I'm starting off in Siem Reap and heading south over a couple of weeks, hopefully ending up on one of the islands. Where will be the best places to meet people in Siem Reap? I'm a bit old to be staying in hostels now so I'v ...
