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.

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 ...

Hi guys, I am/was planning to travel to Vietnam and Cambodia, but because of the clashes of the recent days, I might be planning to drop down Cambodia and travel to Vietnam and Laos instead. 1- Do you think there will be security threats in Cambodia?

Last time I was in Poipet the only buses going to Phnom Penh were at 0630 and 0730.Much too early for my crossing.Does anybody know if there are later buses now? If there aren't do you know if I can at least get to Battambang by bus.I hate shared taxis. Thanks all. ...

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 ...

Just like to put everybody right on what is happenning at Lakeside,Phnom Penh. The articles and advice on this site are way out of date. As far as I know the only guesthouses still operating are #10 and Simon's.I saw them drag the remainder of the infamous #9 away about 1 month ago.The place where it was is now a little outdoor cafe/bar (sort of) selling drinks and with a refreshing breeze from what remains of the Lake, though the thick clouds of ganja smoke means it's difficult to actually get ...
