Figuring out route--input please

Posted by redsneef on 29/9/2014 at 12:45

I am thinking of travelling to Cambodia during my 10 week adventure in the region. My base will be HCMC and I've figured out which parts of Vietnam I will be travelling to--bearing in mind my travel companion will be my 3 year old son--so it's slow travel and open ended. I would love to see SR and maybe Koh Rong or other beachy places. I'm trying to figure out if I should fly into SR then travel down to PP and then on to coast line, or should I land cross near xa xia, do the coast, go to pp a ...

Help planning first trip to Cambodia

Posted by remsam on 26/3/2014 at 11:55

I will be visiting Cambodia for the first time later this year and would greatly appreciate some input on where I should visit. I am flying into Phnom Phen and will be traveling solo for the first 9 or 10 days of my trip. I will then be joining a friend in Siem Reap for 4-5 days.

Cambodia beach sand fleas

Posted by Debbyc on 9/8/2014 at 21:34

From what I have read in many places, it makes it sound like sand fleas are a real problem on the less populated beaches of the Cambodian islands and beaches. Is that true? I don't mind bugs here and there, and they sometime creep into your room at night. But I am adverse to rodents in my abode and not being able to enjoy an early morning or late afternoon on the beach without being slathered in DEET. Bugs and animals outside are fine. We will be in Siem Reap, and want to spend the end of the ...

Moving in from the Philippines to Cambodia

Posted by redpirate427 on 5/7/2014 at 12:21

Hi, We are a childless Filipino couple in our mid-30s with location independent jobs, so we were thinking if it would be doable in the long run (or at least a few months) to live anywhere in Cambodia or neighboring countries for much cheaper than we spend now. We are used to roughing it; i.e., no A/C, no TV, no hot shower. Just clean beds, decent indoor plumbing, and proximity to cheap and healthy food. WiFi would of course be a requirement. Would it perhaps be possible to live on US$400 a mont ...

Siem Reap to Kratie

Posted by cambod123 on 25/7/2014 at 09:35

It's ok if it's a bit more expensive, if faster or more comfortable... Thanks! ...
