Hi there, I am looking to travel as above and hoping someone might have some recent info & advice. My questions are: Are all buses to Ha Tien via Rach Gia or is there a direct line? What is the current cost & travel time? I will be travelling with my 10 year old son, is Ha Tien or Rach Gia a better place to over night before crossing the border?

koh rong - ko tui (green ocean guesthouse) and palm beach for new year

Posted by caramarsh on 18/12/2014 at 22:43

Hi there, my friend and I are keen to go to koh rong for new year and we are having trouble finding accommodation in ko tui where we'd like to party. The only thing we can come is green ocean guesthouse bit we are unable to find any reviews for it so we're a bit concerned. Had anyone stayed there or seen any reviews? Our alternative is to go to stay at palm beach on the north east of the island but we worry nothing will be going on for new year. Has anyone been to either and experienced how eas ...

Posted by remsam on 8/11/2014 at 23:11

I am visiting Siem Reap for 5 nights next month with my mother and could really use some advice about where to stay and what to reserve ahead of time.

Craving for Alcoholic Milkshake in Phnom Penh?

Posted by jorjaft on 2/12/2014 at 11:26

Alcohol + Milkshake = Best of both World! Came across this little milkshake bar named ''Milky Way", tucked away in a quiet street filled with expatriates. I think its at the street behind Malis restaurant , St 308) Its a small little shop but its has a warm and homely feel to it. Ordered one of their signature drink named " Frozen Mudslide" ( I think it was vanilla ice cream with diff kind of alcohol mixed into it). Definitely a good way to ease off the swearing heat of Phnom Pe ...

Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville - Avoid \

Posted by Augustots on 1/12/2014 at 22:06

I've just got a really bad experience with this company! I've choose Giant Ibis because of its respectable reputation that I've seen from many reviews on internet...Even tough the price was a bit higher than other companies, I thought It would worth. I bought my tickets from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukvile 2 days in advance so I thought I wouldn't have any problem. I was wrong... The bus would leave PP at 9:30 am so they told me they would pick me up at 8:30 in my hotel. I woke up at 7:30, so then ...

Reading through the Lonely Planet SE Asia on a shoestring book and I'm liking the idea of getting involved in a homestay within each country just so I can fully immerse myself in the culture. The first homestay recommendation I have come across in the book is no more I've had a Google but am reluctant to go with anything that I've not had recommended. So if anyone can recommend any homestay throughout SE Asia let me know. Thanks in adva ...
