beware of dishonest guesthouse,sihanoukville

Posted by sayadian on 29/11/2011 at 23:41

We are currently staying in Sihanoukville but unfortunately had to move last night because the place we stayed was disgraceful. It was bad enough that they couldn't clean the room whilst we were out but they did manage to let themselves in to help themselves to some of our property including my camera.When I asked what was going on all I received in reply was loud abuse by an arrogant woman who claimed to be the boss. The name of the place is ROMNEY guesthouse just down from the Golden Lion Pl ...

Posted by natsuyasumi on 9/7/2012 at 18:05

Hi We are planning to travel to Cambodia at the end of this month with our 3 kids: 4,6,11. However, since we started hearing about this 'mysterious disease', we are wondering if it is better to reconsider our trip to cambodia.

Banteay Srei, miss or not? (angkor itinerary)

Posted by kattkaa on 30/5/2012 at 20:19

Hi everyone, I have a quick question. Is Banteay Srei not to be missed or can I omit it and not feel like I've missed something great? If yes, is it possible to do the Big Circuit and Banteay Srei in one day? We have 3 & 1/2 days in SR, one at the main temples, one cycling to Bang Mealea and one for a trip to the lake (possibly Kompong Phluk). I know there is a tour that includes Beng Mealea and Banteay S - that is the one we were originally going for - but I would so love to do a bit m ...

Angkor Itenerary Thoughts

Posted by brandonc2012 on 8/6/2012 at 16:08

My girlfriend and I are planning to spend a few days in Siem Reap (mostly for Angkor ) in July. We hired a guide to take us around on days 2-4 to maximize our time there. We like adventure and a little off the beaten path (which I know is impossible here now) I really wanted to see Kbal Splean, but she advised against it due to travelling in July. Below is her recommended itenerary trying to suit our needs and a few of my inputs. Let me know your thoughts and if there is anything missing ...

Hi Folks, I am going to Thailand, Cambodia(Angkor Wat and Phnom Pehn) and Vietnam (Saigon, Mekong river) I decided to take Paludrine (I think another name is Proguanil) for Malaria precautions. Does anyone have any feedback about it? Some websites state it is less effective (~70% effectiveness) than Malarone (~95% effectiveness). Is there any restrictions in terms of how many tablets I can carry with me? Thanks Diyan ...

Long stay accommodation or apartment in Siem Reap

Posted by KirstyB on 12/1/2010 at 13:56

We are currently in Siem Reap and looking for either an apartment/house to rent for 1-2 months. Alternatively a guest house which will offer a good long stay rate - needs to be a good sized, bright room with space for a table/desk and chair. The biggest restriction is that I need 24 hour (well almost) internet access at a decent speed. There are some great houses around but they seem better suited for longer term lets as rarely come with much furniture, which it's not really worth buyi ...

I'm planning to bus into Kep, then go to Kampot (staying in each town for a day) and from there straight up to the border during the following morning. This will also be during the rainy season, ...
