Shared taxi Phnom Phen to Siem Reap

Posted by veron on 8/8/2006 at 21:32

My husband and I are flying into PNH from BKK using Air Asia on in mid-Aug and have arranged airport pick-up, a half-day tour in PNH and Mekong Express bus tickets to Siem Reap at 12hr30. We have booked our hotel in Siem Reap. In the trip advisor forum, there were many comments made about Air Asia being late or even worst, cancelling flights.

HELP!! Visa!!

Posted by kchhabra on 25/1/2012 at 03:13

Hello, I am currently working in Battambang until the middle of July. When I arrived in January I applied for the business VISA and paid the $25 fee, but after checking it again there is a T in front of my VISA number which means it's a tourist VISA. I need to extend my VISA for 6 months, but with the tourist one I can only extend for 1 month. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Any advice or recommendations!? Can I extend for 1 month, then leave the country and come back after the s ...

How is Cambodia During Tet?

Posted by Tukee on 16/1/2012 at 03:48

I regret that I chose the wrong season coming to Vietnam, thinking that climate wise, this is the best season. I will be arriving in Vietnam on the eve of Tet. My train reservation agent regret to break the news that there are no availble seats and they are shutting their services for this occasion from Jan.18 to Jan. 28. That means I will be stuck for 10 days, maybe filing my nails in a tiny hotel room for 9 days. Are transport system and temple attractions going to stand still in these 10 da ...

I recently took my first trip to Cambodia in November (on a short term missons trip). I would like to go back the first week of April 2012 (I know, the hot season, but have work to finish with a client). I am looking for someone experienced in Cambodia (be it a national or foreigner like myself) interested in trekking through Cambodia. Depending on my work situation, it could be as short as 10 days or as long as a few months (in which case i would do VN, Thailand and possibly Burma). Thoughts on ...

We will be traveling from Bangkok to Poipet in the very early hours of January 18, 2012. Will probably arrive in Poipet around 8am and traveling onwards to Siem Reap. Let me know if there is anyone who would like to share the cost of a private taxi. Our guesthouse will send a car to pick us up in Poipet which can accommodate up to 4 persons. There are 2 of us already, both females, traveling with very light baggage. We are looking for 2 more. It's more expensive but it's faster with less hassle ...
