Cambodia in 8 days

Posted by muratgungor99 on 26/9/2011 at 00:36

Hello, We are planning a trip to Singapore, followed by another one to either Cambodia or Bali, Indonesia for 8 days. If we go to Cambodia, we are thinking of seeing Siem Reap, Phnom Penh and Kompong Cham. How realistic is this? I know there is a one-week itinerary on Travelfish about this, but I'd like to hear people's opinions on the matter. Would it be too much of a rush, or will we be able to enjoy our time? Thanks, Murat ...

PP to Sihanoukville by 11am?

Posted by kmc on 7/9/2011 at 13:36

Hi folks, We're crashing in Phnom Penh for a night when we fly in in a couple of weeks but are hoping to be able to get to Sihanoukville by 11 or 11:30 the next morning in order to catch the 12pm boat to Lazy Beach. The earliest bus seems to go at 7am - do you reckon that stands any chance of getting us there and, if not, what the best alternatives are? Thanks, Kris ...

Flooding in Siem Reap

Posted by elizabethnoelle on 23/9/2011 at 18:53

just an update from Mekong Boutique Hotel in Siem Reap, lots of flooding in most of the city area, above the knee water in the streets, tuk tuk's are having a hard time getting places, it is difficult to get anywhere by foot as well, as it is a very strong current. We just arrived yesterday when the flooding got really bad, so we haven't made it to the temples yet, but people are telling us there is no flooding in that area. Will update on this after we visit there. Check out this youtube video, ...

Ritchie's Bar Otress Beach Sihanoukville

Posted by Damian123 on 23/9/2011 at 08:33

Late Aug 2011 I stayed on Otress Beach, near Sihanoukville. The hut bar on the sand beside my place was called Ritchie's Bar, and had a roadside neon sign set in a box. The "R" had failed, thus the dag joint with its stoned expat proprietor, now reads "Itchie's". This cracked us up for weeks, but such was our measure of being zoned out in tropical bliss, no-one took a photo of the funny sign. If you are going to Otress in the near future, like this Sept-Oct 2011, could yo ...

Quick Lakeside update?

Posted by AGRO on 8/9/2011 at 17:51

Headed to Phnom Penh tomorrow Sept 9/2011 and probably in and out of the city a few times. I know al about the situation at Lake Side and I know it's changing rapidly. I did a search here and I can't seem to find any recent info. Is it worth it to head to Lakeside or go straight to the river front? We're looking for nice clean cheap accommodation, as I remember the riverfront was a bit more expensive. Is this the same scenario? Thanks! ...

e-visas into Cambodia - any issues?

Posted by gingersmith869 on 8/9/2011 at 19:50

Hi all, I've heard most of the uniformed border officials for both Cambodia and Vietnam are unscrupulous and regularly try to scam tourists regularly for anything they can. I'm planning on heading from Ho Chi Minh to the Moc Bai/Bavet crossing and have read in the LP that getting an e-visa can be a good way of bypassing such problems. I was wondering if anyone could provide information on these to see if it's worth doing? The website is for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Cambodia (http:/ ...

Elephant Ride Banglung Cambodia

Posted by kendramarshall on 5/9/2011 at 02:57

We stayed at Lake View Lodge in June 2011 for three nights. The accommodation is average as is the restaurant. However, I would like to comment on the Elephant Ride which was arranged through THe Lake View Lodge's own tourist agency. Firstly we were taken by scooter to the village to begin the ride. The driver of my partner's scooter was driving much too fast and was sliding around in the mud, he asked several times for the driver to slow down but he did not and eventually the bike slipped again ...

Phnom Pehn or Siem Reap to Koh Chang??

Posted by crispydog on 3/9/2011 at 15:46

Ok, so i was in Siem Reap and enquired with my hotel about the cost of a bus to Koh Chang. I got quoted $11. I thought this would give me a ballpark figure of what to expect to pay from Phnom Pehn which i had to return to to collect my passport from the Thai embassy. On the map, SR and PP seem similar distances from Koh Chang. Back in Phnom Pehn i cannot find a bus cheaper than $21 anywhere! Can someone please tell me why this journey is so much more expensive to make from PP??? It actually w ...
