Sihanoukville guide

Posted by dandav on 18/11/2010 at 06:47

A great tour guide with his own bike to take you around or can arrange a car. Cost is between $15 and $25 depending on hours and distance travelled. Rith (24) is full of knowledge and advice of this area, as he grew up here. A nice story of his life if you get to know him. Speaks very good english and keeps you informed with SMS or emails. He looked after me for 4 days while in Sihanoukville going to waterfalls, Ream NP deserted beach, city tour, beach tour and lots of other interesting places ...

Angkor with own moto

Posted by Voyagner on 15/11/2010 at 15:58

Hi, now I know you aren't allowed to drive you own bike in Angkor grounds but I know it is actually possible. Has anyone done it can can anyone give advice on how where to enter the park from? Obviously the normal gate is out of the question but I guess there are endless routes into the park other than that one. I found these guys who did it this year This will be my 4th or 5th visit to cambo and 3rd time to Angkor so I'm not really going to be riding to temples wher ...

Cab from Siem Reap airport into town

Posted by StreetSpirit13 on 13/11/2010 at 18:59

This is a cautionary tale and request for advice: please tell me what I should have done to avoid this awkward situation... I flew into Siem Reap today and got a taxi into town. I had gotten my ticket for the taxi at the counter in front of the airport ($7), and told the driver where I was going. He said he knew where it was and how to get there. On the way, he started telling me about all these "family owned guesthouses" I could stay at, and how cheap they were. I kindly told him n ...

Overnight cruise (Bassac) angkor Borei or around to Phnom Penh?

Posted by jadzia on 14/11/2010 at 18:50

Hi guys! We intend to travel from the southeastern tip of Cambodia (Kampot/Kep) up north to Phnom Penh. We would love to make an overnight cruise, maybe starting somewhere around Angkor Borei. I know there is alot of Boats taking the route from Chau Doc... But we will coss the border in the south from Ha Tien (Prek Chak - Xa Xia) directly to Kep, so it wouldbe useless to go all the way back to Chau Doc, especially as we do not have multiple entry visa for Vietnam. Is it possible to "hop on ...

Hello! I would first like to say that I love this website. I just bought my plane ticket for a kind of spur of the moment trip to SE Asia by myself. I've been doing some research and this is by far the best and most informational site I have found. I'm pretty overwhelmed because I want to go everywhere and see everything. I know I have a very limited time though so I would like to stick to 1 country. I'm flying into Bangkok at the end of Nov and I think I want to spend most of my time in ...

Hi, Our friends stayed in Kampot four years ago and recommended it to us as a stop on our honeymoon itinerary because of the Bokor Hill Station and the abandoned casino and other eerie but compelling architectural relics. However, I have been researching online and saw a mention that the casino is now being converted and major development works are taking place? As we have limited time in Cambodia - does anyone know if this is true? ...

PP Guesthouse with WiFi and Breakfast?

I've always stayed at Mekong Palace Hotel on the riverfront, rooms were $15/n and the place is clean, it's always been fine but I've decided $25/n is my budget if I can find a place that offers free WiFi and breakfast for two. California 2 seems to fit the bill but I'm not sure on the breakfast situation, is the price normally just for one person? Any other recommendations? ...
