Help with visiting Preah Vihear, Koh Ker, and Beng Mealea

Posted by MichaelW on 10/6/2016 at 07:05

Hi all, I've been living in Cambodia for a year but since I'm based in the south, I know very little about the north. I am looking for advice on the best way to visit Preah Vihear, Koh Ker , and Beng Mealea. The main problem is that it seems like too much to do in a single day. If I were just picking two, I'd probably just hire a taxi and go up from Siem Reap for a day trip. My recent thought was to go up to Preah Vihear, spend the night in Sra Em, then hit Koh Ker and Beng Mealea t ...

16 days in north Thai/Cambodia. Any hint?

Posted by goncourt10 on 27/4/2016 at 15:59

Hi there! My gf and myself are flying next week to Bangkok for 15 days. For the time being, we only have got this flight, so it's a last minute planning...By the way, our main goals are visit Angkor Wat area and lay back some days in some cool islands (preferably Cambodian, if worth it). So our idea is not to stop in Bangkok, but going directly to Chiang Mai/Rai and spend 2/3 days there. Then, move to Siem Reap and dedicate 2/3 more days to Angkor Wat area. Then, heading Cambodian Isla ...

Hi all Heading to Cambodia (with a few days in Vietnam) the week after next, for just under six weeks, all overland from and back to home in Bangkok. I've spent time in Cambodia on a couple of occasions but, with the exception of Siem Reap and Sihanoukville town, these are all new destinations for me. So I'd love any thoughts on my planned itinerary from any more experienced Cambodia hands who have a moment - particularly anything where I'd be better off taking in places in a different ...

What I don't like about Cambodia...

Posted by altmtl on 16/3/2013 at 05:32

I've been here since Feb. 27th and I must say the thing that has ruined it for me is the annoying Tuk Tuk and moto drivers who pester me and other tourists constantly, Some places are worse than others. I can't even cross the street or walk a block sometimes without being harrassed. They are every where honking their horn and yelling at me one after another... so much for a peaceful walk or taking a photo, and god forbid if they see you looking at a map. Yesterday I had a scooter helmet on and ...

I need an apartment rental for one month in PP away from the expat scene but still a nice place. Any recommendations? I want to avoid companies that used places with maintenance issues, flooding, noise, dangerous animals/people, etc. Rather, I'd like a company that looks after their renters if any problems arise. I was thinking BKK 2 maybe if that area doesn't have a lot of expats or maybe near Olympic stadium so I could workout with the locals. Thoughts? ...
