Early morning taxi from Siem Reap to Poipet

Posted by amalie on 18/1/2009 at 07:08

Hi Guys, We'll be travelling the SR - Poipet - BKK route in a few weeks and want to make it to Bangkok as early as possible - by lunchtime would be perfect! Does anyone know what the earliest possible time a taxi will leave for Poipet from Siem Reap (we don't want to do the trip in the dark, and I don't think the taxi drivers would want to either!). I'm going to make a guess that it's about 5am? Anyone done this trip early? How much did the taxi cost? Thanks for the help :) Amalie x ...

Christmas in Cambodia?

Posted by thewanderer on 25/8/2011 at 17:24

Me and my Girlfriend are spending Christmas in Asia this year. We're aware that it's not generally celebrated but would like to stay somewhere nice for a couple of nights (24th - 27th December). Ideally our plan is to stay on an island, chilling at the beach and I think we will probably be in Southern Cambodia around that time. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations? Cheers The Wanderer ...

Getting yellow fever shots in Siem Reap?

Posted by Fixman on 20/8/2011 at 22:17

I am from Argentina, and so to enter Thailand I need a yellow fever vaccination certificate.

Phnom Penh - hostels and attractions

Posted by csawala on 25/7/2011 at 23:00

I am going to Phnom Penh with 2 friends on August 23rd, for maybe 2 nights, before heading off towards Sihanoukville for some scuba diving. I was looking at hostels on hostelworld and noticed that even the best rated places had a significant amount of mixed reviews. Was wondering if anyone could give a recommendation or their own experiences. Looking for cheaper options, but it doesn't have to be $1/night, and preferably close enough to attractions to make the most of our time. Also somewh ...

Legal items to take back to UK?

Posted by pikem11 on 28/7/2011 at 21:24

I'm in Cambodia for the next couple of weeks. I was hoping to bring home some alcoholic drinks for friends and family. Are there any drinks that are illegal to bring into the UK? Is Mekhong whiskey allowed? I know that some of these drinks are legal in the UK, such as absinthe, but outside the EU they are made differently, so it would be better to check first! Also, does anyone recommend any particular drinks? Cheers. ...

A New Look at Cambodia

Posted by Phil888 on 29/7/2011 at 09:50

I recently read a very insightful book about Cambodia called, “From the Booth to the Bedroom” by Douglas DeMarco. It's a true story of an American finding fame in Cambodia. It's a first-hand account of how he became an overnight TV and Radio celebrity in Phnom Penh. It talks about his journey to find himself both physically and mentally. His insights about the culture, government and the people, but especially the women of this Southeast Asian country. are at times shocking but, for anyone ...
