8 days in Cambodia with an 18month old baby

Posted by shepsinorbit201 on 8/8/2015 at 06:17

Hello, my husband and I are avid travellers and have been incredibly lucky to see a lot of the world. Now we have a baby girl and this has thrown a magical twist to our usual wonderlust ways. We are pretty sure that our first stop in Cambodia will be Siem Reap and at least 3 days exploring Angkor Wat and the area. Then, we were thinking of just one other destination, and this is where I need your help! Should we head to Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville or Battambang? Or somewhere else entirely ...

Planes, boats or automobiles...

Posted by sunlvr on 16/5/2015 at 08:35

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!

Posted by ieskinja on 1/7/2015 at 02:17

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 Khmer440.com 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? ...

organised tour to angkor wat from ko chang

Posted by meldor on 14/6/2015 at 04:08

Has anyone done an organised tour from Ko Chang to Angkor Wat? There are a couple on offer and I'm interested in feedback. I am staying in Ko Chang in October for 18 days and thought this would be a good opportunity to do a few days at Angkor Wat. I'm loathe to cross the border independently as I will be travelling with a child and dont really want the hassle. Any information and advice greatly appreciated. ...

Another visa question :)

Posted by decco on 13/6/2015 at 08:12

Hi all I guess this question has been asked before, so sorry to repeat if it has, but I cant find it anywhere. I am planning on entering Cambodia from Thailand and spending a couple of days in Siam Reap and then PP and then heading to Vietnam for a week. I will then be travelling back via Cambodia to Thailand. I am aware I can get an e visa, but it is only for one entrance apparently. so does this meant when I leave Cambodia for a few days I will have to get another visa to transit back acros ...

Exit visa

Posted by emptypassport on 26/5/2015 at 06:21

Entered Cambodia a few months ago, had my bag snatched in Phnom Penh - containing my passport! Wanted to stay here a while so applied for a new full 10 year passport from the UK. Got it. Problem is A)It's empty - no kind of visa or entry stamp, and B)The immigration office claim to be unable to find any record of my original entry/visa etc., since I don't have my old passport number. So, they say they don't know how to deal with my case. I've been given the option of paying a 'fine' - quite a ...

Itinery help!!

Posted by EllieBlack on 19/5/2015 at 07:37

Hello all I am visiting Cambodia in mid-July but unfortunately because of the way dates have worked out I only have a total of 7 days there... I am desperate to visit PP, Siem Riep and the Elephant Valley Project in this time. I know this is probably a bit ambitious and that ideally you should give yourself longer than 1 day in Angkor Wat but do you think it will be possible to squeeze it all in in the time I have? Thanks! ...

The Elephant Valley Project in Sen Monorom, Mondulkiri

Posted by somtam2000 on 17/5/2015 at 17:14

If you're considering a trip up to Sen Monorom, the following stories may be of interest regarding what sounds to be ongoing issues with elephants & vested interests there. Interesting piece on the EVP and locals being offside with it. (2013) This earlier piece by a travel blogger also worth a read - esp some of the comments: (2013) and a followup piece on an elephant "trek" they did do. (2013) Another piece by another travel blogger (2014) And our piece on the centre, and el ...
