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 ...
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 ...
I am a solo traveller from Slovenia and am planning to head to Prasat Preah Vihear in a few days (probably around 10th of February). I'll be coming from the North East as I am currently in Mondulkiri province, going to Stung Treng through Ban Lung. Is anyone on the same route? I would love to pair with a fellow low budget traveller, especially to visit the temple let me know if anyone's interested!
Take care, Kata ...
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 ...

We got a travel company to arrange our Vietnam visas. We left the second printed copy of our Cambodian e-visa in the passport and when we got them back they weren't there anymore. Does anyone know if this will be a problem when leaving Cambodia or will printing another copy be ok. I think that there was a stamp on it but all it said was 'used'. Any help greatly appreciated.

I'm looking for hiking companions to share the cost of the 7 day Veal Thom trek in Virachey National Park some time around mid January - I am flexible with dates.
Trek details here:
It's run by the Virachey National Park Ecotourism Office (banlung) and camping gear, as well as a park ranger and indigenous guide are provided in the cost. Ranger will help you buy food before. I've read it's an i ...
Hi planning a trip to include Vietnam and Cambodia, only have 2/12 wks or so. I thought Ankgor would be the place to see, but it's off my path. I really want to enjoy the whole of Vietnam and Cambodia. If I have limited time is it well spent to go to Ankgor Wat? This will likely be my only trip to SE asia... ...

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 ...
Cambodia is experiencing a high deforestation rate, which puts the local ecosystems at risk. Mondulkiri province is rich in biodiversity and is home to a variety of important endangered species. A local NGO, L.E.A.F. (Local Environmental Awareness Foundation), has been created in 2014 by Cambodian volunteers from Mondulkiri. 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 ...
Hi has anybody taken this route recently? Looking to see if it is doable on a hired moped or dirt bike and guide?
How much and how long does it take and is it worth doing.
I'm definitely up for an adventure! ;o)
Going in February. ...
We hope to travel to Koh Samet after we leave Cambodia. I'm after some advice regarding routes/border crossings. Hopefully want to avoid going via Bangkok (unless that's the quickest obviously). Any ideas?
Cheers in advance. ...
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!
