I visited Cambodia back in 1996 and think it's about time to pop back and see how things have changed. I have a week available at the end of February and plan to visit Battambang (I couldn't get here in '96), and Siem Riep. Any help with the following would be appreciated! *Recommendations for budget guesthouses. Would it be possible to get a room (fan and bathroom) with free and reliable wi-fi ... for $10?

Posted by bretandgerri on 10/1/2010 at 11:42

Hi there, I'm just trying to work out the quickest way of getting to Phu Quoc from Siem Reap via Phnom Penh ? I know you can fly from HCMC (we are booked to fly back from Phu Quoc to HCMC) but don't want to miss out on Phnom Penh on the way! At the moment it's looking like boat from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh, Phnom Penh to Chau Doc by speedboat, Chau Doc to Can Tho by bus, Can Tho to Rach Gia by bus, and fly to Phu Quoc from Rach Gia. This is taking about a week and we're running short on ...

Khmer New Year - Phnom Penh

Posted by RachelW on 11/3/2010 at 03:53

So I am going to be spending Khmer New Year (April 13-15) in PP. Probably travelling from Battambang at the start. Anybody got any ideas about how to celebrate it with the locals? I will probably be doing the usual sights (royal palace and wildlife tour etc) but would like to go wherever the celebrations are good aswell. Also is it wrong to come prepared with talcum powder to take revenge on any locals that might soak me or douse me in it? ...

Away from the tourist ghetto in Siem Reap

Posted by choobydoo on 23/12/2006 at 16:13

Hello all travellers, Here is a little hint for those who have legs and a brain... Tired of the ghetto of Pub Street (a smaller Kao San Road in Siem Reap, with security agents preventing the Khmer from coming in...), I crossed the river and looked for places where you're not seating right in the middle of the street, and found a different Siem Reap.... The streets are much calmer, you're not hassled by massage girls or tuk-tuks and there is some green... Already much better... Then, in ...

Has anyone had recent experience obtaining a visa at the Cambodian consulate in Sai Gon / HCMC? Quick turn-around or come back next day? I realize visas are available on arrival to Cambodia, but we are entering at a small crossing (O'Yadao, b'twn Plei Ku and Ban Lung), and would like to have the visa in hand when we get there. (Though I know this is an option, we don't much fancy mailing our passports off to the Cambodian Embassy where we live.) Thanks! ...
