Should I take my DSLR?

Posted by lylzezane01 on 3/9/2012 at 12:02

So Im heading back and planning to cover most of south Cambodia in December. I did a trip at the start of this year and went from KL to Hanoi, via Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. I had a compact camera with me and have had a lot of trips where this was just fine and I had no hassles. But my trip to Laos made me decide that this time I will take my DSLR next time. What do you guys think? As far as I know Ill be doing Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville, but I cant tell you any more than that. Should I t ...

Please advise ! Do we need to book accommodation in advance for Xmas in Cambodia?

Posted by maylosada on 30/10/2013 at 09:34

Hi all ! We are going to Cambodia in December, and we want to spend Xmas and NYE in the coast and visit a couple of islands. Do we need to book the accommodation in advance? I know is high season. Our budget is low, we'll be there for 23 days so we will go to cheap hostels and maybe somewhere special for Xmas eve or NYE. Also, is there any party or special event worth it to go around the coast by then? Thanks very much for your help ! ...

Hi, I will be in Battambang (city) for 25 days in December and then again in June/July. I am an English speaker and would like to pick up basic Khmer while I am there. To do so I am staying with a Khmer family (but they don't speak English well at all). I would also like to find someone who can come over for a few hours each day for some formal conversational instruction. Does anyone know how to find a English-Khmer instructor in Battambang? ...

Traveling from Siem Reap to Koh Chang

Posted by takezo on 16/11/2013 at 15:50

Hi! I am planning to travel from Siem Reap to Koh Chang via Battambang and Pailin at the end of December. I have read most posts here and in other forums, but not much that was up to date. Needs to be said that I am traveling on my own, so I guess I need to be flexible when it comes to shared taxis and stuff. I would be particularly interested to know whether you can make that trip in a day or whether you need to stop over in order to hit the best times crossing into Thailand. E.g. go t ...
