Where can I find a weapon? (Siem Reap)

Posted by ThaiStick on 21/7/2013 at 19:04

Hi! I'm going to Cambodia (Siem Reap) and was wondering if there was a market or some district where I might be able to acquire a sharp object for personal defense such as a butterfly knife, or switch blade, or any sharp or blunt object..

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 ...

One month in PP trustworthy companies for apt. rental for May visit?

Posted by mixedkt on 18/3/2016 at 05:16

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? ...

Newly updated: Koh Kong

Posted by somtam2000 on 1/2/2016 at 01:59

Koh Kong is one of those towns that people often just blow through on the way to somewhere else. On this recent update of Koh Kong our writer found there were actually plenty of reasons to slow down. Think river boat trips, trekking, island exploring, fancy-pants floating hotels and more. So maybe give it a night or two when you're passing through next. ...

Dear all, My trip for a month is getting closer. I am leaving in 3 weeks and feeling really anxious. To be honest, I didn't do much research about Laos and Cambodia before deciding on going there. I went to Thailand and loved it, so I kind of knew what to expect. I didn't knew tough that these areas were high risk zones of rabies. This time I will be packpacking low budget so I'm getting really worried about my potentional risk of rabies. I also assumed if i got the shot, I would be fine. ...

Wanna share a taxi to Prasat Preah Vihear?

Posted by VIX555 on 18/1/2016 at 05:46

Hello! We are really keen to visit Prasat Preah Vihear and taxi seems to be the best way to go. We have found someone who will drive return to Prasat Preah Vihear, Koh Ker and Banteay Sri from Siem Reap for $155. This is a lot but could be less if shared!! We have looked into doing it using local share taxis and though it works out a bit cheaper, we couldn't do as many temples in one day and might have to stay overnight in a the town near Prasat Preah Vihear to make it work. We are mainly in ...
