Bus times Poipet to Phnom Penh

Posted by sayadian on 10/4/2011 at 16:03

In three weeks time I'll be arriving at Suvannabhumi at 15.30.Hopefully I can get to Aran that day but of course the border doesn't open until 0700 next day. 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 ...

Shared Taxi from Siem Reap to Poipet on Friday, March 4th

Posted by mrdome on 15/2/2011 at 20:30

Does anyone have an idea how to hook up with others in SR who might also want to make this trip (early in the day)? I most certainly will not do the bus thing, getting picked up at 7 and then driven around SR for an hour while people are having breakfast at their GH and then more time wasted on some rest stop along the way. If anyone needs to make this trip as well, please get in touch. Thanks! ...

Lakeside,Phnom Penh

Posted by sayadian on 24/3/2011 at 17:46

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 The articles and advice on this site are way out of date.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 ...

old farts new to Cambodia

Posted by jojoaus on 12/4/2011 at 18:37

OK. We have about 9 days in June to get a taste of Cambodia. We were thinking 2 days in Phnom Penh, then 2 or 3 days in Seam Reap to see Angkor Wat and then a couple of days on the islands just to get heat relief. We need to know mostly about traveling. Are buses our best bet?? I read that the train system just doesn't happen. Also.. accommodation. Being 46 and 56... I think we need air con at night to keep us functioning in summer. Any thoughts and experiences would be most welcome. We will ...

So I was reading a bit about the project and am wondering about the time frame as it wasn't too clear. While we will all miss Russian Market, most of who have spent time in Phnom Penh know that parking is a major issue and will continue to be unless steps are taken. So they're taking'm... Anywho, so is the plan to demolish it all at the same time? Or are they planning on keeping some of it up for historical/tourism reasons for a while? And does that mean that all the souvenir vendors are goi ...

Hi Guys, I have put together a rough itinerary for my time in Cambodia, I will be travelling probably in around June/July so not sure if all my plans will be possible in the rainy season.

Siem Reap to Bangkok overland: are there companies to book the entire journey?

Posted by smillertime78 on 27/2/2011 at 18:03

Hello! So glad to hear the roads have been paved, etc as I need to get from Siem Reap to Bangkok (and hopefully to Ko Chang same-day!) in mid-March. Does anyone know if there are companies in either Phnom Penh or (preferably) Siem Reap that can help facilitate the entire journey, including border crossing? Or is it really that easy to do alone (and I am alone!)? Alternatively, there was mention of a quick shared taxi trip; I assume this would be for only either the Cambodia OR Thailand ...
