Posted by wyattjnr on 6/12/2011 at 12:41

Hi, my wife and I are are in Cambodia for a week and then intend to fly to Hanoi for a few days and work our way down Vietnam. Living in the UK, I have found flights that only take an hour to be £170! We were going to see if we could book these flights once we get to Siem Reap. Does anyone know if they are any cheaper once we get to Cambodia? Cheers ...

Best place to eat in Phnom Penh for less then 3$

Posted by airyk on 4/12/2011 at 21:50

Hey if you know of any great restaurants for under 3$ for a meal post them here. Here is my post! Also sorry for the lack of spacing, travelfish is doing that, not me. I’m a guy who doesn’t like to spenda lot of money. I’ve been living in Asia for about 2 years and before that Ilived in other places where food is never expensive. In Cambodia, for most ofmy meals I spend $ 1. Usually that gets me a tasty soup, fried noodles, friedrice, a big plate of spring rolls, or steamed rice with a bi ...

Laos - Sihankounville Getting Around Advice, Please!!

Posted by sharoonie on 20/11/2011 at 02:33

Hi Travelfish Mates! I'll be arriving in Cambodia from Laos and flying home from Siem Reap on December 29. I want to fit in Ankor Wat (3 or 4 days), Phnom Penh (2 days) and Sihanoukville (4 days). 1) Does it make more sense to fly into SR, see Ankhor Wat, take bus to PP, then immediately take bus to Sihanoukville and backtrack through PP for 2 days then onto SR? I ask because I understand there are interesting places to stop along the way. How long is each leg of the bus trip? Is it poss ...

Booking hotels in Siem Reap... or not?

Posted by KatjaKat on 18/10/2011 at 02:17

Hi! I'll be in Siem Reap around 20 november. I'm travelling solo, and I'm thinking that booking hotels ahead might tie me down to a place even if I make friends who want to go to this great place an hour away from me... Is it a problem to just show up to the hotels in Siem Reap, or should I book to make sure all the decent spots aren't full? If I do book, does anyone have any recommendations for a solo female (28) who wants to get to know people, but doen't necessarily need to party every ni ...

Bokor hill station road complete!

Posted by think87 on 13/11/2011 at 00:18

Just got back from a tour of Bokor hill yesterday and I can say for sure the road is complete. Our van went from the bottom to the top on a new concrete road and no walking or trekking at all. Also a couple from the guesthouse met me up there and they went on there own on rented motos and also had no problem bottom to top. The only sirt we encountered was going to the waterfall but that is in process of being paved as well. There is construction everywhere going up the hill with a large set of ...

Koh Rong without Rabies shots?

Posted by Knowlan on 20/11/2011 at 16:17

Hi, I'm new here and did a search but found nothing. I am heading to Cambodia for two weeks in mid December and planned to do a day trip from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong, but the more I look into it the more a night or two appeals. The one thing stopping me from going is the remoteness of the island in case I happen to get bitten by an animal. Does anyone know how common animals infected with rabies are and how often you can get back to the mainland? I haven't had the preventative shots and ...

Working Vacation Ideas

Posted by lsunyc on 17/11/2011 at 15:33

Greetings all: I have about three weeks to spend in Southeast Asia. Unfortunately, I'll have to work for the most part of those three weeks. Can you recommend places (such as Siem Reap, etc,) where I can hang my hat for a few days and work, walk about the city and take in the sights, then move on to the next place and work? I like small cities--preferably in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. But I kind of like the idea of hanging out in Chang Mai for a few days as well. I'd prefer towns/cities in whi ...

Phnom Penh to Battambang

Posted by meeshakar on 10/11/2011 at 14:03

Hi Travelers! We are staying a few days in Phnom Penh and then heading up to Siem Reap. We were thinking of stopping in Battambang and wondered if there was anything along the way from Phnom Penh to Battambang worth stopping and staying for? We would be up to staying in a random location along the way just to take in the sights. Also, is the Bamboo Train still in affect? I heard it was closing soon, just not sure when. Any suggestions for hotels would be great or things to do along the way. ...

Hi all! My Cambodian visa runs out on Sunday 13th, and i'm just researching my next moves! And looking for travel buddies!

Since there are diffusing news about the Royal Khmer Railway Situation and the still exisiting bamboo trains around Battambang , I just want an update on it by people being around that part of Cambodia... Are the norrys still working? Which part of the Poipet - PP line is covered? Is ist only Odom Battam to Phnom Bale or further? Or is it possible to hop on a norry even between Sisophon and Battambang, or even to Pursat? My last information was, that the royal trains are not working anymore, ...
