HS grad going to Cambodia for 5 months

Posted by joody96 on 26/6/2013 at 12:56

I graduated high school in June and plan on taking a gap year before going to college. I visited Cambodia for two weeks and worked at an orphanage. I travelled with an absurdly expensive program filled with privileged kids who were just looking for community service hours and something flashy for their resume. While over their I fell in love with the culture and vowed to go back. I have made a connection with an orphanage in Phnom Penh and they have offered me a place to work for five months. ...

Islands around New Years

Posted by ktkates87 on 21/6/2013 at 21:08

I'm planning a backpacking trip through SE Asia. I am hoping to visit Koh Rong and possibly Samloem, and based on a rough itinerary I think we might end up there around New Years Eve. Will that affect our ability to find accommodations? I'd rather not book too far in advance because I'm hoping to not have to stick too strictly to an itinerary and the dates may likely change. Thoughts? ...

Business Visa Extension - New Page in Passport?

Posted by ChloeC on 16/6/2013 at 08:59

Hi all Can't find this information anywhere else so here I am! I'm coming to Cambodia shortly to do an internship for three months. My workplace told me to get a business visa on arrival and that they will extend it for me. I have two questions in relation to this: 1) Can I get a business visa for longer than one months duration on arrival or do I simply have to extend it once I'm there? 2) Does the business visa extension take up another page in your passport or do they simply stamp/sign yo ...

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 ...
