Aranyaprathet to Ventiane overland?

Posted by textibule on 28/11/2010 at 20:45

Hello all. Been reading the great info on this site about going from BKK to Siam Reap via Aranyaprathet which I plan doing mid-january 2011. When I'm done in SR, I was considering going back to Aranyaprathet and then, if such a thing exists, taking a bus from there into Nong Khai , just before the Laos border at Vientiane. My objective is to avoid going back to BKK just in order to catch the train that exists to Nong Khai and on through the Laos leg of my trip. Any thoughts? Is this a silly w ...

Cambodia: Thai baht exchange for Riel ?

Posted by 5acrefarmer on 8/1/2011 at 14:34

Hi Crossing into Cambodia from Thai very soon. I'll have about 3000 baht in my pocket and wondering if I should exchange that for US$ or Cambodian Riel. May only be in Cambodia for 2 weeks but think I'd get to spend the Riel although I also wonder if US$ are used so much I'll get stuck with the Riel. I have plenty of US$ already. Also can anyone recommend which side of the border I would get a better exchange rate? Thanks, Ian ...

Travel between Stung Treng and Phnom Penh

Posted by millybygrave on 5/1/2011 at 02:10

I am travelling up to Stung treng via kratie and sen monoram before that. I need to get back to Phnom Penh or Siem Reap for an onward flight- it doesn't matter which airport I fly from. I have found from reading peoples advice on the travelfish forum that Sorya bus company is reputable and thus a good bus company to travel with from Stung Treng to Phnom Penh, however no one mentions how long this bus journey is! Does anyone know how long this bus journey will take? Thanks everyone. ...

So our 16hr flight doesn't arrive till 2am on Dec 24th and am wondering if we should head to the border to get to Siem Reap (Angkor Wat) or stick around in Bangkok for two days ( we will be back later after few days to explore rest of Thailand).

Rental Motorbike stolen in Sihanoukville

Posted by philuxbown on 16/12/2010 at 08:18

Hello, I've got my rental motorbike stolen on Independence beach in Siahnoukville. The thieves cut the lock with pinces. It was properly parked and I left it 20 minutes max without surveillance. It was 13:00 local time. To make matter worse, the hotel has my passport as a warranty and the owner asks me to pay him 850 dollars to buy another one. I went to see the police but there is little hope to get it back. It is probably a scam between the owner, the police and the thieves but I cannot prove ...

Hey all, I’m going to Phnom Penh in January for at least 6 months. I need a new phone and have been looking at picking up a HTC. My question is this; Is it worth waiting until I get there to buy one, price wise I mean, or should I just get one here at home (Europe) before going? Thanks for your help! ...

Killed a Chicken. What happens next?

Posted by Rasheeed on 15/11/2010 at 16:20

So I'm in Cambodia, and I'm driving my motorcycle (3 days ago). Chicken runs into the road. I can't avoid it. I slam it, it shakes for a few second then dies. This is seen by a couple on a motorcycle and some small children in front of a house a few meters down the street. It happens that the chicken belonged to the grandmother of the house. What should I do? I know what I did, but Khmers and others have disagreed as to if I acted appropriately. What would you do? 'sheeed ...
