Ongoing feud regarding Preah Vihear temple

Posted by wegotoeleven on 14/2/2011 at 21:27

Hey peeps. I'm going to Thailand tomorrow, and looking to cross into Cambodia in about a weeks time. Has anyone been having, or are aware of any issues with border crossings as a result of the feud about the Preah Vihear temple in Cambodia? I know it's right at the top, but tensions between countries are tensions. Hopefully this won't affect crossing the border elsewhere... Thanks :d -- wego ...

Advice on Cambodia destinations

Posted by Jehonna on 1/2/2011 at 21:06

Hi, I'm planning to travel with my mother for her 60th birthday and I'm seriously considering Cambodia (we've already done Thailand). We'll be coming around mid April. We're coming in from Bangkok We have about 14-16 days for this trip. I'm attracted to Cambodia because of Siem Reap /Ankor Wat and what sounds like really great people, but the rest of it seems a little underwhelming to me (I'm not sure I want to go down to the beach in Sihaounkville). Am I missing something??? I also seriously ...

Cambodia in 11 days - what to do in between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap?

Posted by koppeu on 27/1/2011 at 02:21

Hey guys, so here's the deal: I'll be travelling to Cambodia in March and I'm having 11 days to spend. I'm arriving in Phnom Penh and will be staying there for two nights. Then will eventually end up in Siem Reap and stay there for three nights. In between those two places, I have a week to spend around Cambodia and was hoping to get some input from you guys. Since I wanna avoid excessive travelling from one place to another, I thought about visiting only one extra region during that time. ...

Hi - I am going to be in Siem Riep from March 1-15 and and will be travelling solo. Anyone out there looking for a travel companion to see the sites.

I am an avid photographer and like to take enough time to enjoy the sites. You can send me a private message if you are interested in connecting on any to ...

Are electronics cheaper in Cambodia?

Posted by frederikdb on 25/1/2011 at 19:25

Hey, I heard from another tourist that shopping for electronics, such as iPods and iPhones, is cheaper in Cambodia than in the US. I think she mentioned that in Cambodia, there were no taxes on electronic products. Can anyone confirm if this is true or false?

Khmer food

Posted by mattocmd on 13/11/2010 at 12:12

My favorite part about travelling is the food - the cheap awesome local food. In HCMC I can get pho for $1 or go to the central market and get the best seafood like a plate of grilled scallops for under $2...all cheap and amazing. In Bangkok I can get delicious street food or go to a local restaurant and eat like a king for nothing. I'm having a hard time in Phnom Penh. Can anyone help me out? I don't want to eat at the expensive western restaurants. I'm having a hard time finding deliciou ...

Just a quick heads up that this Thuesday night they'll be a "Traveltribe" get together in Phnom Penh. See the blog entry here for the full wrap, but it's basically just a social event where you can get together with a few other travelling bods (the ones you haven't met yet) and also meet some of the people behind some of the travel websites you may be familiar with. I've been to the Sydney one, and it was great, so if you're in the area, do check it out! ...
