In response to an unfair review of Virachey NP here on TF

Posted by gregmccann1 on 19/9/2010 at 20:07

I am writing this in response to a review someone wrote of Virachey National Park (VNP)outside of Ban Lung in Ratanakiri. Highlighting the overall negative tone of the description of the park were references to leeches (in a tropical rain forest during the rainy season??? No!!!) and a lack of animal sightings (they saw a bamboo rat and 2 birds). Ok, first off, I dare the author to name one single national park in Southeast Asia (SEA, not Africa) where visitors are likely to see any animals bes ...

Khmer New Year - Phnom Penh

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 ...
