Kampong Chhnang, floating village worth it or no?

Posted by charlottex on 8/7/2014 at 10:16

Hi! I would like to know if it's worth it to make the journey to Kampong Chhnang to see the floating village? Has anyone done it? What else can we do around this town? How much should cost the boat trip and what do we do exactly during this trip? Do we stay on the boat or we can jump off and visit? Is there some operators who organises this little trip or we have to ask ourselves a fisherman with a boat? Thank you so much! ...

Botum Sakor National Park destroyed

Posted by gregmccann1 on 22/6/2014 at 22:38

A Chinese developer has clear-cut 45,000 hectares of Botum Sakor National Park down in Koh Kong and evicted all families living there. I know a guy who lives down that way and he estimates about 80 wild elephants have been rendered homeless as a result of this project, and they are now coming into conflict with humans. It's sad that the original vision of preserving this area as a site of natural heritage of virgin jungle on the coast with wild beaches has been sold to a Chinese developer that ...

Posted by Pilar813 on 1/6/2014 at 12:54

Hey everyone! This is my second trip to Thailand and Cambodia, first was 8 years ago, this one is for my honeymoon! Me and my husband are arriving in Bangkok early on the 3rd August, and on the 4th want to go to Cambodia. We were thinking of possibly leaving on a bus later in the eve to save money, and just staying on the border in Aranyaprathet, but if there was anyone who was wanting to share a taxi with us to save costs that would be great as to possibly drive all the way to Siem Reap ! ...

New Virachey trek

Posted by gregmccann1 on 20/2/2014 at 09:25

I recently completed my 5th trek in Virachey NP and Park Ranger Sou Soukern and I (info in the link provided below) have charted out a new path. In this new route (and this is for the 6-night/7-day Veal Thom Grasslands trek) you'll pass through Veal Thom when you arrive there but you'll camp out in the northern forests at a gorgeous waterfall/swimming hole (photos in the link) called D'dar Poom Chop. It should not add any time -or possibly just one day- to your trek, but it will take you to a tr ...

Is Phnom Penh worth the effort at the end of a long trip?

Posted by baza on 2/6/2014 at 20:24

We are taking our 4 children from NZ on a 19 day trip starting in Vietnam going from Sapa, Halong Bay & Hanoi through Hue and Hoi an down to the Mekong Delta. We then fly across to Siem Reap (to see Angkor Wat etc) from Ho Chi Minh city before heading back to NZ. My husband now wants to see Phnom Penh (just for a day he says!) as well as going to Siem Reap (which we have already booked to do). Our children are likely to be getting tired of travelling by this point and I ha ...

Battambang - Pailin - Trat

Posted by sipace on 1/4/2014 at 04:57

is it doable in a single day and how long would it take in early May? Information on this is quite old and we're looking for fresh info.

Any suggestions about what to do/see in Phnom Penh? And how long to spend there? I love Southeast-Asian cities, but I can't find a lot of information on Cambodia's capital. I know it isn't anything like Bangkok, but still. Is there some kind of 'khao san road' there (or just a place to meet fellow, young backpackers). Are there markets worth exploring? Off the beaten path things to do? Daytrips? I'm planning on staying two nights (too short?) but can easily extend my stay. Thanks for the feedba ...

Dengue in Cambodia

Posted by Geer1 on 2/5/2014 at 23:28

Some guy just made a post asking what to do if he gets Dengue in Cambodia but for some reason it was deleted while I was replying. I don't feel like wasting my reply so here it is. Wear long pants, long shirts and use mosquito spray if you are noticing mosquitos. Pay attention and ask if Dengue is epidemic at the moment and if it is be extra cautious on avoiding mosquitos. If they say it is safe at the moment still exercise caution as it is always possible. If you come down with a high fever g ...
