I brought £500 Sterling with me to Thailand where I am staying for 7 months. Next month I am visiting Siam Reap for 1 week to visit all the temples. I have booked return flights, taxis to and from hotel, and hotel. I read the best currency to take with me is US dollars, but I have been in to 5 different banks in Hua Hin, Thailand, and none are able to give me dollars. I guess it may be due to the current situation in the US. Can anyone advise me. 1. Should I change my UK sterling to Thai Bahts whilst here in Thailand and take these or 2. Should I take the £500 sterling and try and change in a bank in Siem Reap or 3. should I just rely on an ATM in Cambodia.
I was hoping to have dollars in small denominations so as to pay the taxi on arrival.
Advice would be most welcome. Thanks. I am a single 71yr old male.
We are booked to stay 5 or 6 days in Siem Reap (booking is amendable and still undecided) and the last 2 nights in Phnom Penh. We have 5/6 days in between.
We want to do the SR temples to the full and also visit a bit around, maybe book a day cycling tour.
1- Should we go to Battambang at all?
2- if we do, can we go straight from there to Sihanoukville? or via Phnom Penh only?
3- Is the Northern route via Kompong Thom better then the Southern one via Kompong Chhnang? Anything on either we should see/visit on the way?
4- Sihanouville is supposed to be our 'chill out' time, should we stay there or head for an island nearby?
5- Finally, Kampot? Should we? Is one night/1.5 days enough?
We are 2 women, quite chilled and prefer good local food, no rush and cultural/nature visits.
Thanks in advance!
Staying 3 days in Siem Reap and on night 1 or 2 nights in Phnom Pehn. We will be doing the tour thing during some of the time but also want to explore some on our own. What we are looking for is a safe and centrally located hotel to stay in. A big concern is if we decide to venture out at night I want to be safe. We like to go to dinner and then go have drinks sometimes but do not want to go far from the hotel. Preferably a nice hotel in a safe area that has interesting things to do around it. (if possible). Price range is from 80 - 130 usd per night.
Thanks for your help
Want to travel from Battambang back to Cha-Am (Thailand). What's the best way for travel back?
We're planning a 2 week family trip to cambodia in January. Our proposed itinerary is to fly into Phnom Penh , have 2 nights there before heading to Siem Reap for the temples and Tonle Sap lake, then heading to Battambang for two nights before ending our trip on the coast either in Sihanoukville or one of the islands.
Is this a realistic itinerary for our time frame? Is there anything we're missing?
Also some questions:
Is it better to stay on the mainland coast in Sihanoukville or head to one of the islands? if so, what island is recommended?
Is it better to bus or boat from Phnom Penh to Siem reap? what companies?
whats the best way getting from Siem Reap to Battambang?
And the best way from Battambang to the coast? Ive heard due to bad roads you have to head back to PP...true?
Any further suggestions/tips are greatly appreciated!
I'm going to land in PP's airport and thinking take a taxi direct to Kampont chhang.
It's about 2 hours drive.
What price should I expect? about 20$-30$?

Hi all, over the past few years we have travelled throughout Cambodia and have been deeply touched by the humbleness of the people.
We have decided to repay back some of the kindness we have enjoyed and is is our intention to raise monies in the UK to assist in the installation of water wells in a number of villages around Siem Reap.
Although there are many charities in the area working on such projects, it is our wish to undertake such a project privately.
Does anyone know of any companies in the Siem Reap area that specialise in such well installations...
If you do, names, contact numbers and emails would be most humbly received to progress our dream.

Who cn recommend a good trustworthy tuktuk driver?
Does anyone have the contact number for a tuk tuk driver called TIM in Siem Reap. We were there a year ago and can't find his number. Tim hangs out at the bus depot when he is not driving tourists. He is recognisable by the fact that he always carries cold water and face washers for his guests.
