Help greatly appreciated! Cambodia/Laos - 2 months

Posted by JarrodPace on 7/5/2011 at 13:35

Trip recs for Phnom Penh

Posted by DandA on 4/10/2010 at 17:18

Hey all, After taking so much from Travelfish and the forums I thought I'd give something back. We visited Cambodia in July and had a great time throughout Phnom Penh and the South. A couple of recommendations: Guide: We met Arun through the Boddhi Tree Hotel. He has since set up a website to do guided tours around Phnom Penh and surrounds. Lovely guy with amazing passion for the advancement of Cambodia. His website is: http://arunsmilingservice.com/ Motorbike tours: My husband did a 4- ...

Bangkok airport to Aranyaprathet

Posted by joanne1981 on 24/10/2010 at 01:49

Hi, We arrive into Bangkok from the UK at 15.30 and I was hoping to make our way straight from the airport to Aranyaprathet to overnight there before crossing the border to Siem Reap. I was originally going to overnight in Bangkok and make an early start but this makes more sense and means we will get to Siem reap a lot earlier. Are there any buses around this time to Aranyaprathet from the airport? Thanks in advance, Joanne ...

Cambodia without PP and SR

Posted by ccalvin09 on 17/3/2011 at 05:58

I am going to be traveling around Saigon and want to pop into Cambodia for a few days because I love the people and vibe so much. Been to Angkor and I don't know if PP is worth it, since I'm not really a city person. I also don't really care about beaches cause I am going to get those in Vietnam. So if you were going to spend four days in Cambodia in a quiet place off the beaten path that is relatively easy to access by road from one of the border crossings, where would you go, and what would ...
