Volunteering in Cambodia?

Posted by Donman1990 on 9/4/2012 at 21:31

I'm doing some backpacking through Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia next year, and I'm hoping to spend 2-4 weeks of my time in Cambodia volunteering. Ideally I'd like to do some english teaching of some form, I've done some research into different organisations, but it's just left me confused, there are so many. I have read a lot about organisations that are profit based, and none of the money goes into the community, ideally i'd like to avoid this kind of thing. I Just wanted to hear some other peopl ...

Sihanoukville or Siem Reap first?

Posted by achoo on 27/4/2012 at 09:13

I'm currently in Phnom Penh (been traveling from Laos) and my flight back from Bangkok leaves on the 18th of May. Which one is better to do first: Sihanoukville or Siem Reap ? (I'm going to do both.) Other then that I'm worried of getting stuck on the beaches in Sihanoukville, is there any other advantage of doing Siem Reap first? Is it easier to go to Bangkok from Siem Reap or Sihanoukville? Or is it just stupid to first go from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap and then d ...

Cambodia in May

Posted by Popnorm on 12/2/2012 at 18:05

I have read that it can be extremely hot in Cambodia in May. Is it worth doing Ankor Wat at this time or would the heat be unbearable. We actually purchased some very cheap tickets from Australia to KL and now have to plan where to go (3-4weeks). We have visited Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and parts of Indonesia but have not made it to Cambodia yet. We do plan to have about a month in Bali on the way home. Any suggestions would be appreciated ...

Hi, i've been looking into travelling around Cambodia and pretty much figured the bus was the only way to go. Then I found this airline. Does anyone have any experience booking and flying with them? Only have a week so if I can use the odd flight to get around I might be able to add in an extra place to visit. ...

Posted by iwillfly525 on 8/4/2012 at 04:28

Hi, I have a question for an administrator. I created a post a few days ago asking if anyone had any personal experience volunteering with an organization called The Phonheary Ly Foundations. I had received a good number of replies from people who spent time volunteering there. Some of the people left me links to more information and along with e-mail address so I could contact them directly. I'm trying to follow up on some of leads they left me (now that I have time), but when I click on th ...

Kampot/Kep-rainy season, monthly accomodation

Posted by tqe on 8/4/2012 at 03:21

Need to hole up somewhere and work for some months and am trying to decide between Kampot or Kep (I'm already in Cambodia and obtained 1 yr visa) or heading to Malaysia and seeing about a chalet in Cherating or something. I need clean, quiet and a comfortable place to work on my laptop. The $500 USD budget I'd like to keep to during this time obviously fits much better with Cambodia especially with the visa already in hand. But, I haven't been down to Kep or Kampot yet and am wondering ...

I'll be in Siem Reap for two days and want to see Anlong Veng and the Khmer Rouge sites there. Has anyone done a day trip from Siem Reap to Anlong Veng and is it complicated? Once in Anlong Veng, are guides easy to find? Can I see the Khmer Rouge-related places in one day and head back to Siem Reap, and is a taxi easy to get returning to Siem Reap? ...

travel advice Cambodia from Laos

Posted by mishka1988 on 23/1/2012 at 06:04

Hi, I'm leaving the 4000 islands and need a bit of advice from those whove crossed the Cambodian border before.. Is it best to take the route to Penom Penh or to Siam Reip first? I've been hearing death stories about the Siam Siep route as well as LP recommendation to hit Penom Penh first. Lately LP has been leading me astray. What is your take on it? Also-- I'm looking to fly up to Hanoi from SR or PP-- does a flight like such exist? Which city is best to fly out or where might I look ...

A road between Beng Mealea and Preah Khan of Kampong Svay?

Posted by cloud on 30/3/2012 at 08:36

I plan to visit Beng Mealea after visiting Preah Khan of Kampong Svay using a motor cycle. The Cambodia map from Candy Publication connects the two places directly by a thin line indicating there is a direct road between them. If that's true, then I do not need to detour to Highway #6 (passing Kampong Kdei) and can save a lot of travel time. I checked, however, Google Earth and also Google Map but I was not able to locate the road. I checked also other maps, too but so far the Candy map is the ...
