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 ! ...

Posted by jaizan on 28/11/2013 at 14:36

I'm visiting Cambodia again in December. Would like to visit Preah Vihear & maybe Koh Ker etc. However, I'm somewhat put off by the reports of taxis costing over $100. Now has anyone managed to find other tourists to share the cost with whilst in Siem Reap? Or are any readers here interested in sharing a taxi 2 or 3 ways around 16th Dec, or a couple of days later? ...

Where to find Khmer language instructor in Battambang?

Posted by msorice on 24/11/2013 at 13:10

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 ...

Road Conditions: Phnom Penh to Kratie?

Posted by dibrarian on 1/11/2013 at 11:31

I have planned to bicycle from Phnom Penh to Kratie beginning November 10 and wondered if anyone had any info on the road conditions post-flood. I've read on bike touring sites (Mr. Pumpy's, Crazyguyonabike, TravelingTwo, etc.) that road conditions are typically very rough and dusty, but I thought I'd check and see if anyone knew if they are now worse than they already were. Any advice appreciated. ...
