Hi, Can anyone recommend me the best way to travel from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap. I have heard that the boat can be dangerous and not much fun, although this was original my preferred choice. Would anyone think bus or taxi would be a better option. Thanks ...

Anyone interested in sharing a 2 day private Angkor tour tomorrow?

Posted by BryonyC on 11/8/2015 at 04:00

Hi Everyone! I've booked a 2 day private tour of Angkor Wat with a highly rated tour guide on Tripadvisor. I'm a solo traveller and needed a good tour for MA research but it'd be great to find more people to join. The tour company is AseanAngkor tours, look on the website if you want to see the itinerary or you can pm me. The cost is 150USD total for 2 days plus site fees but we can share the cost with more people. ...

New places to visit in Cambodia

Posted by Bridgequeen on 7/9/2015 at 09:01

Hi I have 2 weeks in Cambodia in February 2016 beginning and ending in PP due to flights booked. This is my 3rd visit and I really want to go somewhere new but finding it difficult to find somewhere which does not involve excessive amounts of travel. I have visited SR, Battambang , Kep and Kampot on previous trips and loved all of them. I am into history food and nature but do not want to (and am too unfit for) excessive amounts of walking or trekking. Thinking Paillin, or Sen Monorom, ...

Siem Reap guide or solo?

Posted by sunlvr on 3/9/2015 at 19:09

Myself and 2 friends will be in Siem Reap for 3 days in mid October. Would you recommend hiring a guide for Angkor or doing it on our own? I want to be sure to see the well known temples but also some of the off the beaten path ones as well. I'm used to being my own tour guide but with the short time we will be there, we want to make the most of it. Also, looking for suggestions on guesthouses; we have looked online and the choices are endless! Have looked (and liked) Golden Butterfly. Shoul ...

My travel buddy just added Phnom Penh to our travel plans, so I'm trying to find the best way to integrate this and still see everything else we wanted. Just for the experience of it we wanted to try to use as many ways of transportation as possible. So.... what would be your recommended way of travel from PP to SR? I see our options are plane, boat or bus. This will be in mid- October and we only have 2 weeks total and after SR we are going on to Laos. Thanks for any and all input. ...

Flights from Phnom Phen to Bangkok-advice please!

Hello, I'll be staying in Cambodia, with my last stop on the way being PP. My flight back to Europe is scheduled from Bangkok on 17 th of August at 7:30 pm. My plan is to take a flight (with Air Asia, Cambodia Angkor Air...) from PP to Bangkok, and my question follows as; how smart/safe is it to book a flight from PP to Bangkok on the same day, i.e. 17 August (I found a morning flight, so I would be comfortable in time to get from one airport in Bangkok to another and catch a flight back home ...

Article on Virachey National Park, and more

Posted by gregmccann1 on 9/7/2015 at 02:08

I just published an article about VNP on and I thought it might help nudge those who are pondering a trek in Virachey to head up to Ratanakiri. I've also been getting emails from people about how to arrange a trek in the Park, and my advice is to "friend" Leam Sou on Facebook (you can call him 'Sou'). You can get everything sorted with him and he is by far and away the best VNP guide. Some other things related to Virachey: a video compilation that I made off just one camer ...

Orphanage volunteering in Cambodia - to do or not to do?

Posted by susanne60 on 19/6/2015 at 03:04

I've heard a lot about how evil these so-called "orphanages" in Cambodia really are, such as hiring local kids to pose as hapless orphans while leaving them in awful living conditions. Only one third of orphanages in Phnom Penh are permitted by the government to operate, or so they say. The question here is, if one really wants to volunteer in an orphanage in Cambodia, how can one possibly find an ethical one? Has anyone volunteered in Cambodia before? How was your experience? ...
