I am planning on spending NYE 15/16 in Bangkok, Thailand then getting a coach to Pattaya on the 1st/2nd Jan 2016 to avoid the busy city escape.
Once in Pattaya I am planning on buying a cheap motorbike or moped (sell at the end of the trip) to make my way on a 3-4 week journey through Cambodia (coastal road to Phnom Penh, then North to Siem Reap) then South to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. I will then fly to Hanoi for a day or two before flying back to the UK.
I am doing the trip on a budget, ...

Had the pleasure of having a companian whilst at Siem Reap last month. Tuk Tuk driver and guide. Was very punctual and what I like about him is that he is pretty committed to his schedule, unlikely many who seemed to be rushing around. Handled our travel itinerary well, brought us to spots which touristless photography was possible. It was a nice trip and I felt I should do him fair by introducing to fellow travelers for your consideration to use him. You can see his website here. He can speak ...

I'm trying to plan a short vacation to Cambodia during the first couple of weeks of July. I have flight tickets into and out of Phnom Penh which has caused a bit of a headache planning the itinerary. I've included what I've got so far below.
One issue is could I get from Battambang to Siam Reap Airport for a 1:30pm flight? Would I need to hire my own car to do this trip? I would ideally like to avoid having to transit through PP again on the way so ...

We are in Phnom Penh where we try to sell our bikes for a reasonable price.
Do you know any good place that would accept bying second hand bicycles?
Thanks for the help! ...
Husband and I (late 50's) are planning our trip for November. We travel quite often but just Europe and the US so this year we're heading further east.
Want to see all the usual tourist sites and some of the real Cambodia, learn about the people and history.
We are not beach lovers but would like to wind down for the last few days.
Work dictates only 2 weeks so any comments & suggestions to the itinerary below would be very welcome.

Dear all, congratulations for The New York Times vote. Travelfish is most valuable to me while on my first trip to SE Asia. Food, directions and things to do. Hotels occasionally.
Today's question is: We are in PP at the moment, going to Kep for 2 nights, than 5 nights in Kampot . I thought about maybe going directly to Kampot from PP, leave our luggage our Kampot Hotel, rent a motorbike for 2 days to go to Kep and come back 2 days later. Would that be a good plan?
In Kep, we wa ...
Hi! I'll be traveling to Cambodia on July 3 to July 15. I'm planning my itinerary from Siem Reap to PP to Sihanoukville and to Kampot (to find the best peppers!) and to koh rong samloem?
From Siem Reap to PP I have it all figured it out. I just need your recommendations on things to do and see around SR and PP.
However, from Sihanoukville and going to Kampot and to Koh Rong I haven't figured it out yet.
can I go back from Sihanouk to Kampot (vise versa) within the day?
I'm plan ...
Hello- I am traveling to Laos and Cambodia in October with my husband and our 7 year old son. We have traveled in Thailand with our son (and Vietnam/China/Myanmar with no kids) but this is our first time in Laos and Cambodia. We will have 3-3.5 weeks.
Do you think the below itinerary is reasonable? Any suggestions on what we should add or subtract? Any hidden off the beaten path gems to suggest? Any suggestions on which Cambodian island is good for a family? In Thailand, we loved Koh Mak (it wa ...
Hi , I am in Laos right now and planning to cross to Cambodia early March. Having read through Travelfish newsletter just now the article regarding Laotian military invading Cambodia around Stung Treng; I am questioning if I should just change my itinerary and not go there. I had planned to spend 4 days at the Mekong Bird resort near Stung Treng. Having never been there, it worries me. Can anyone knowledgeable in this area help? ...
Hello, I am planning a trip to Cambodia this summer and I was wondering whether there is a bus between Banlung and Siem Reap, Or do I have to come back to Phnom Penh in order to go to Siem Reap? If there is a bus, maybe someone knows its timetable? Thank you in advance! ...
My friend and I took a bus from Siem Reap to 4000 islands, and it was f---ing awful. Textbook corruption.
VR Express is either working for or with Phnom Penh Sorya Transport Co., which has its own host of horrid reviews.
Here is a general summary of the trip:
1. The bus driver talked on the phone for a significant portion of the drive.
2. There were multiple vehicles changes that were not mentioned beforehand, and at one point, we were left stranded at a gas station in Stung Treng ...
