8 nights Cambodia trip!

Posted by apple5 on 20/5/2012 at 21:29

Hi guys, need some help with itinerary! I'll be flying in to PP late afternoon on 5 July and leaving from PP in the morning on 13 July. Tentatively, I was thinking first and last nights in PP, 6th-10th in Siem Reap and 10th-12th in Sihanoukville. Is this feasible? Or will the transport between each place take too long? Also would appreciate any other suggestions/locations for a short diversion from PP and SR for 1 or 2 nights!!! Many thanks in advance for all your help! ...

Most direct route from Kampot to Koh Kong border

Posted by Wanderrun on 11/6/2012 at 12:24

Hello! I've been trying to research this route ( Kampot to the Thai costal border) as much as possible. I've been finding mostly outdated information or info detailing routes from Thailand to Kampot, which don't seem to be reversible. Has anyone recently completed this route and can share what they did? 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, ...

Phnom Penh Bars for Ladies

Posted by h2onewmedia on 15/4/2012 at 21:04

There are a number of good bars in Phnom Penh that are “Lady Friendly” that is to say they are devoid of Taxi Girls and keen ladies that will try to chat up your men. Here is my suggestion for where to go drinking and partying if you are a female in Phnom Penh. Early Drinks The area around the Riverside is nice with lots of restaurants and bars for you to frequent, however don’t stray onto roads 136 or 104, which are girly bar roads. A drop into one of these bars will almost certainl ...
