Silver River Hotel

Posted by scomoore1 on 3/1/2012 at 12:54

Found this place on agoda web site while playing with my iPod in Siem Reap. Very nice place on 172 Street, near Wat Ounalum. Clean rooms, breakfast included. See web site The neighborhood is also interesting. Across the street is a noodle shop called Little Noodle Shop. Noodles made while you watch!

Virachey or Cardamom?

Posted by alljokingaside on 30/12/2011 at 07:35

The forums I was reading were quite confusing and i was wondering if anyone could simplify the easiest/quickest way to cross the border? It was saying to book it through a travel agent in what I was reading, but t ...

Phnom Penh culinary tour and cooking school

Posted by Lostbeachbum on 25/12/2011 at 22:02

Hi, The title of this post says it all, pretty much. Am willing to fly a leg if necessary, so if you know what's possible along that line, that would be great.
