we are 2 girls travelling through SEA and are about to spend 2 weeks in Cambodia.
We would like to do a 2 - 3 day trekking in the cardamom mountains.
We'll be coming from Battambang and after cardamom mountains travelling back to thailand/bangkok.
- What base should we take? Trapaeng Roung or Chi Pat?
- How do we get there? bus? boat? taxi? via Koh Kong? Pursat? ... I hear transport and roads are not that great in that region.
I hope to get some good info. thanks in advance ...
My partner and I were hoping to rent bikes when in Siem Reap to bike around and explore on our own. Apparently there are lots of other wats and historical sites to happen upon, and we've heard that biking is a great way to do it. My concern is whether this is safe to do, mostly with respect to landmines. Any thoughts? ...

I am planning on doing 2 weeks in Cambodia and a little of Vietnam. I was looking in to different ways of getting over the boarder going from Cambodia to Vietnam and I'm most interested in the boat option for something different from all the bussing. I have a few questions about this though.
1. My friends are warning me against Cambodia. I've already booked a flight there, so changing it is definitely not something I want to do given the huge fees. I checked the risk and it is showing as hi ...
A little reminder from our friends at the Guardian:
Interesting read, nothing new to a lot of people here - sad that this is stil the case ...
i'm currently in china and planned to spend the winter holidays (jan/12 to feb/13) travelling around cambodia with my boyfriend. we're arriving at and leaving from bangkok.
i want to enjoy tropical beaches but at the same time i don't want to miss the temples and the lush nature of this beautiful country.
i figured out a rough list of the places i'd like to hit: bangkok, maybe one or two thai islands (koh samet, koh chang?), peam krasop, koh kong, sihanoukville and islands (really ...
I'm writing to recommend the new behind-the-scenes wildlife tour with Wildlife Alliance at Phnom TamaoWildlife Rescue Center, a day trip from Phnom Penh.
Behind-the-scenes tours with Wildlife Alliance allow private access to the tiger dens, baby animals in nursery, the elephant enclosure (for feeding and bathing elephants, walking them through the forest, getting painted in a new t-shirt by humanely trained Lucky, watching Chhouk's training to change his prosthetic foot) and a personalized tour ...
Can anyone shed light on whether it's possible to go directly from Koh Rong to Koh Rong Saloem without having to go back to Sihanoukville? We'll be there in October and hoping to do both islands for a couple of days without having to hop back to the mainland in between.
Is there any transport from Sihanoukville to Kampot on evening? We are coming from Siem Reap and arriving Sihanoukville around 18.00. Is there any bus or any other decent and safe transport available that time? How about taxi? Is it possible to get taxi driver to take us that late? And how much would taxi cost from Sihanoukville to Kampot?
Thanks in advance ...
Is there any direct transport from SR to Kampot/Kep at this point?
I read a couple of older post stating that there wasn't any then, had to go over Phnom Phen. Is this still the case?
All info is greatly appreciated!

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 ...
We are travelling two weeks in Cambodia with my girlfriend. I'm nature geek so we would like to do some trekking in nature park near Kampot. I have read that best nature attraction there is Bokor National park. Where should I ask for guide to Bokor? Any additional tips of Kambot nature attractions and Bokor would be greatly appreciated.
I'm trying to book accommodation for 21-27 dec over xmas and I can get a dorm for all the nights except xmas eve.

Haven't stepped foot on Cambodia for several years, read this on the latest experience:
Would like to hear from people who have been to Cambodia in the past 12 months to confirm it. I have friends who are planning for a trip there..... ...
I'm flying to Bangkok around the 15th of February and flying home again on the 4th of March. I am going to get the bus to Cambodia to meet my sister as that's where she's going to be (unsure of exact location yet). What itinerary would you recommend in Cambodia and as we work our way back to Bangkok to fly home? Planning on spending a couple of nights in Bangkok at the end. I've never been before so I'd really appreciate the advice!
