GiantIbis bus. Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville

Posted by sayadian on 11/6/2013 at 23:43

I thought I'd try this relatively new service and give it a quick review. Tickets are $10 which is around 30% more than other companies charge so I was expecting something better. You can wait for your bus in a small seating area inside the companies office which are at the end of street 106 next to the site of the night market and Riverside. The waiting area is clean and air-conditioned. Transport was a large mini-bus with masses of leg room making it easy to stretch out and relax or sleep. No ...

Posted by stusie94 on 6/6/2013 at 09:02

Hey guys, me and my girlfriend are planning on going to SE Asia in june/july for 38 days in total. The plan is to be in Thailand for 18 days, then travel to Cambodia for around 6 days, then be in Thailand again for the next 14 days. The problem is, as I understand it, to qualify for the visa waiver I need proof that I will be leaving Thailand within 30 days. However, we want to go to Siem Reap by bus from Bangkok (apparently there's now a direct bus route) but I can't find anywhere to book ...

Does this Cambodia tour sound legit, or is it a scam?

Posted by byroncarr on 12/5/2013 at 19:34

My girlfriend and I have booked a 15-day 'adventure' trip to Cambodia in November, complete with full day kayaking, biking, jungle walks, and even a night of camping, travelling around Cambodia. We found the tour online (http://adventure-cambodia.com), and the tour company only has one review on TripAdvisor. We've already paid the 10% deposit, and the tour company wants us to pay the remainder in cash when we get there. Does this kind of your sound legit? Is it normal to pay in cash, and shoul ...

Which airport to exit the country?

Posted by Jetter on 29/5/2013 at 05:37

Hi Everybody! Planing a 4 weeks trip to Laos and Cambodia. Will fly to Thailand and go by train to Vientiane, starting the journey there. Have to be in Kuala Lumpur 4 weeks later. Which would be the better airport to exit Cambodia, Phnom Penh or Siem Reap ? Ticket fare is almost the same. Don't want to plan to much of the journey in advance, but if I'm right it would be easier to exit Laos at Don Det and continue to Phnom Penh as to go to Siem Reap from there, is that right? So if I want to ...

Cambodia - corruption at Poipet. Don't pay the bribe!

Posted by IvanaCZ on 24/4/2013 at 03:07

If you're going to Cambodia it is very likely that the officers will demand a bribe. We crossed into Camb. from Thailand at Poipet and experienced all of the scams mentioned elsewhere on the net. At the visa counter the officer told us that the visa costs $20 + 100 Bhat. I pointed at the sign above his head reading : tourist visa $20. He repeated the same thing 3 times and I did the same, adding that 100Bhat is a bribe which I refuse to pay. After this short exchange he gave up and gave us our v ...

Orphanages in Cambodia

Posted by Nokka on 25/10/2010 at 00:50

There is news this weekend of a British man being arrested for sex offences against children in orphanages he ran near Siem Reap . When my wife and I were in Siem Reap last February we went to one of the orphanages on the outskirts of town. When eating in a restaurant the night before we received a flyer about how visitors were welcome the next day to meet the kids and watch them do a show. We cycled out there, a further 10 or so westerners also arrived. We played and talked with the kids and ...

Where to take my boyfriend for his first SE Asian experience?

Posted by gingergirl on 17/5/2013 at 01:49

Ok so I am taking my new partner to SE Asia for the first time. He has never even been out of Sydney , let alone the country. , on the other hand , have been to Se Asia 5 times, so I am fairly familiar with what to expect. The problem being I am not sure where would be a good introduction to travelling in SE Asia for a city boy. I would love to go to Cambodia again, but I am worried it will be too much of a culture shock for him. I am thinking Thailand or Vietnam might be a better destination f ...
