Hello, I have my first trip to cambodia coming up in September. I have three weeks to explore but decided to stay in fewer places and explore in depth. I am a photographer and will spend 9 days in and around Siem Reap trying to capture Angkor. I have also booked a 5 night stay in Phnom Penh before flying out to Bangkok for my return flight. It is the height of the wet season and beaches do not appeal and have been searching for a more rural , quiet rainforest, trekking, adventure sort of ...

Siem Reap- 4000 islands- South Thailand without much hassle- is it possible?

Posted by HanoiMargarita on 2/9/2012 at 07:10

Please, help, I cannot decide myself. I have been in Siem Reap for a few days and feel like I really have to move on, but cannot decide in which direction. I have a heavy luggage after traveling in Asia for 5 months, which is a pain and a main reason I am not very mobile when it comes to changing transport. With my 3 bags it is impossible to walk in streets either. I was thinking of going to 4000 islands, then to South Thailand to see the best there, and then return to Chiang Mai where I started ...

Beng Melea

Posted by Baston on 20/8/2012 at 16:26

I will be in Angkor late september, 27th through october 4th. I plan on hiring a car ($60-70) along with a guide ($25.00) to go on a full day trip to Beng Melea (along with a few other stops.) I wanted to see if anyone was interested in sharing the costs. I figure taking a tuk-tuk that far may be pushing it a little, not to mention AC will probably be nice. Please let me know. ...

Advice for a solo female traveler?

Posted by XeniaC on 2/8/2012 at 23:43

Hi guys, I will be travelling to Siem Reap in a week or so, flying solo though. So I was wondering is it actually safe to do that? Are there perhaps any tours you can recommend where I can meet fellow travelers and stay within in a group? Cause till now, what I understood, most of the people are renting a guide and a tuk tuk, but don't really want to do that on my own. Thanks Cheers! X. ...

Visit an Orphanage

Posted by bhaulley on 15/5/2008 at 18:00

I work here in PP for an NGO, and I'd like to suggest to travelers that they visit an orphanage while in Cambodia. I suggest one that I'm familiar with, Cambodian Dump Children Center. That's right, they're dump children, orphans picked up at the city dump, living off trash pickings in one of the poorest countries in the world. You'll love the kids, and it'll change your view of life and position. You can find them on Street 103, about half a mile south of Mao Tse-Tung Blvd. Email me in advance ...
