For a leg of our trip we're hoping to get to Luang Prabang from Siem Reap and are looking for advice on flights - is it only Bangkok Airways and Lao Airlines that fly this route? I've already ...

Landmines?

Posted by lylzezane01 on 20/2/2013 at 11:23

I am looking at going camping with a few friends on Koh Ta Kiev (an island off of Sihanoukville. I am not sure how far exactly, but it is in day tripping distance). There is no designated area to camp in and they pretty much just give you a tent and you go and set it up on your own. Is someone able to tell me the landmine situation on this island? I would talk to the locals but we have to book a fair time in advance. Thanks ...

Advise about National parks and islands

Posted by PadThai on 22/1/2013 at 14:07

Hi, in March I will be travelling to Cambodia, and during my time in the south, I would like to visit a National park (or 2) and a great island. Afterwords I will enter Thailand through Hat Lek to get back home through Bangkok. I was wondering if anyone could advise me about the National parks Ream and Bokor. Are they any good? Since I probably won't find the time to visit Khao Yai in Thailand, I would like to know if any of the Cambodian parks were a nice alternative. At the end of my trip, ...
