      Hi,
      We want to stay in a spa hotel at the end of our trip but want it to be more Cambodian than big hotel chain. We have seen the Belmond which looks amazing but VERY expensive, is it worth the splurge or are there other hotels you can recommend?
      Thanks.

    • Border/visa

      Cambodia Dec 27, 2014 at 1:06 AM

      I foolishly bought a flight to Myanmar without checking the criteria for a visa beforehand.

      I have 5 months left on my passport instead of the required 6 and have no time to wait for a new passport as I live in Cambodia.

      Is there a sort of 'tax' I can pay at the border to ensure entry? I have heard the airport is fairly lenient about some things and since I am only staying for two days I was hoping they would see their way clear to accepting some sort of on the spot payment.

      If I do not at least try then I will lose the money for my flight.

      Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      PS...I do not need to have my own foolishness reiterated to me :)

      High Tea Venues

      Siem Reap Dec 9, 2014 at 2:17 AM

      We will be in Siem Reap for 4 nights early Feb and I would like to take my wife to a first class hotel or other venue that provides British Style High Tea.

      Would also consider any venue providing a Traditional Cambodia High Tea.

      When in Bangkok we have visited the Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel that provides a Thai High Tea ( afternoon), traditional Thai Food. We will revisit in Feb after we depart Siem Reap.

      Would appreciate any restaurants ( mid range price & good food) in Siem Reap for evening meals, our hotel is walking distance from Pub Street.

      Has anyone done a road or a road and train trip from Siem Reap to Bangkok recently? Have searched under 'Transportation' in relevant VT pages but could not find any mention.

      I have gone through advice in http://www.seat61.com/ and

      hobohop.com/hobotips/hobotip... and

      tripadvisor.in/ShowTopic-g29...

      What was the journey like? Which bus and/or train did you avail of? What was the duration of the entire journey? Was it too tiring and/or stressful? What was your experience at the border crossing? Did you do an e-visa for both Cambodia and Thailand beforehand?

      Would be extremely grateful for any advice which is fairly current.

      Thank you!

      bus travel

      Cambodia Sep 11, 2014 at 8:04 PM

      I'm arriving in Phnom Penh in the morning at the end of September and want to catch a bus to Siem Reap the following morning. (I'll be coming back to PP for a few days at the end…) A friend recommended Capitol buses. Do you think there would be a problem in obtaining a seat for the following day or would I have to try to book in advance? I have no idea how crowded the buses would be at that time of year.

      Thanks in anticipation!

      flying into and out of Phnom Penh

      Cambodia Sep 2, 2014 at 2:21 AM

      Hi there,

      I'm trying to do a very last minute 9 or 10 day trip to Cambodia in end September/first week October. My other travel plans fell through and I've set my heart on Cambodia. But I've really got to book my flights!

      I want to fly direct to Cambodia with no overnight stopovers. My main question is, if I fly into and out of Phnom Penh, could I do a triangle of PP, Siem Reap, Battambang, PP? I can catch a bus or fly to SR, and take a boat to Battambang (I think), but is it easy to get from Battambang back to PP?

      A friend tells me I should fly into PP and out of SR, but I sort of like the idea of coming back to PP...

      I figure the main thing is to get my flights booked and worry about the itinerary later. This brings me to my second question: I'm banking on it being fairly easy to get accommodation in September/October. Is that correct? I can book ahead a couple of weeks…

      Any (fast) advice would be much appreciated.

      Lucy

      Hotel with Sunny Poolside in Siem Reap

      Siem Reap Aug 24, 2014 at 12:15 PM

      My friend and I will spend four days in Siem Reap in January. As this is our last days before heading back to the snow in Scandinavia we would like to spend some time by the pool as well.

      We have found some hotels with pools, but from their websites it is hard to understand if the pool has lots of sun during the afternoon and early evening. The plan is to do temples in the mornings and sunbathing after lunch.

      Can anyone recommend a hotel with sunny poolside for a maximum of about $ 40 per night in central Siem Reap?

      Thanks from Lena
