WARNING: do NOT use services from VR Express and BEWARE border crossing into Laos

Posted by sighne on 6/3/2017 at 03:01

My friend and I took a bus from Siem Reap to 4000 islands, and it was f---ing awful. Textbook corruption. VR Express is either working for or with Phnom Penh Sorya Transport Co., which has its own host of horrid reviews. Here is a general summary of the trip: 1. The bus driver talked on the phone for a significant portion of the drive. 2. There were multiple vehicles changes that were not mentioned beforehand, and at one point, we were left stranded at a gas station in Stung Treng ...

Is exploring Cambodia (Sihanoukville) by motorbike safe?

Posted by imm3344 on 21/10/2016 at 06:49

Hello all, How dangerous is it for 2 people to drive on a single motorbike around Sihanoukville during the day and night time? And take a day trip from Sihanoukville to Kampot and back? We have some experience with driving in Asia. We planned to spend about 20 days in December exploring Cambodia by motorbike with Sihanoukville as our base, but are having second thoughts about visiting Cambodia after reading about murders, beatings and ambushes of foreigners that happen in Cambodia ...

Motorbike rental in Siem Reap

Posted by lucasan on 18/1/2017 at 20:00

Motorbikes to rent are now available in Siem Reap . Next to the Mekong Express Bus stop (Sivatha Boulevard) there are 2 places, one rents also e-bikes. I rented a Yahama Fino 125 cc for 10 USD a day, 250 cc bigger bikes are 15 USD a day, in my opinion a bigger bike is not necessary to visit the temple areas. Bikes seem in good conditions, very happy with the one I rented. Now it' s a legal business, they give you a receipt and as usual keep your passport until you give back the bike. No i ...

A must-seen to visit in Kampong Cham

Posted by Marine on 21/12/2016 at 04:35

Hi there ! Travelling in Cambodia, I went to Kampong Cham to visit the area. I would like to share with you an amazing place to spend time for 2 or 3 days. I had the chance to discover randomly this place and extend my stay there. I think this place deserves to be shared and known to give the opportunity to the other travelers to enjoy their time in Kampong Cham as much as I did thanks to OBT. Indeed, it is a NGO called OBT (standing for Organization for Basic Training). Near Kampong Cham at ...

Posted by Visionsdailleurs on 27/3/2016 at 22:22

Its goal is to support and to improve environmental education and conservation among local communities. One of their main source of funding comes from a great ecotourism pr ...

My partner and I are travelling to Cambodia for 2 weeks from New Zealand and have put together an itinerary and was curious to know peoples thoughts. We had originally planned a more relaxed itinerary without Mondulkiri, but thought it sounded really great and perhaps worth squeezing it in - but that said, we don't want the trip to feel rushed. Thanks in advance! Siem Reap - 3 nights (23-26) Shuttle/private cab to Battabang Battabang - 2 nights (26-28) Drive back to Siem Reap and catch ...
