And $1000 AU to spend... accommodation already paid for. More than enough to have a good time?
Heading south around Xmas from PP. Making our way across to Phu Quoc Is (Viet). Got about five weeks with wife and two young daughters.Any recommended islands in southern Cambodia and possible accommodation. Used to paying about $30 / night on previous trips. Never been south before.
Any chance you guys saw a needleshop where they sell cross stitch shop? Just in case? :)
I've heard that your tour guide/tuktuk driver/van driver will show you where to eat your lunch.
I was wondering-- do they eat with you? If they do, do you shoulder their meal? What is the proper thing to do pls?
is the organisation of Traveller.bg for WAT in USA, good and trusted ?

i would like to get the newest road maps as roads are being built all the time
I am planning a trip to Cambodia this August and will be volunteering there for a month. I've been thinking of extending the trip for a week or so in order to experience even more of the culture! I will have already seen the tourist attractions in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap as I have weekends to explore.
I was hoping for any advice on how to experience Cambodia! I am a nineteen year old female and love relaxing when I travel, as well as being busy. I've researched a couple of islands such as Bamboo and Rabbit, and was thinking of doing the behind the scenes tour at Phnom Tamao Wildlife Tours, if anyone has done this, what was it like?
Any places off the beaten track that are a must see? I'd love to do some jungle trekking and see all Cambodia has to offer! Advice please!!!
Hi all. My bf and I are going to Siem Reap in March (one check on the bucket list) and we'd like your advice pls.
We'd like to see the usual places: Angkor Thom, Angkor What, TaPhrom but we'd also like to go to the waterfalls at Phnom Kulen (and maybe take a swim there) and Banteay Srei. We have 3 full days to see it all (4th day is to travel home).
1. Should we get the 1-day or 3-day pass? Which places can we enter using that pass pls?
2. Should we take a Tuk Tuk or an aircon van to the out of town places?
3. Any suggestions of what to see per day? (I know it sounds like I'm asking for an itinerary... who am I kidding, heck, I am---pls pls pls?).
4. How much do you think should we bring? We're budget travellers-- airfare and lodging is already fully paid so we just need to figure out how much the entrance fees are, transportation fees (tuktuk or car), food, massage (yes pls!), a dinner show with the apsara dancing and meals.
5. Those that went swimming at the water falls..errr.. is there a bathroom nearby to change clothes or shower after?
6. Practical tips pls-- how much to tip tuktuk drivers, at the restaurants, at the massage place?
I would appreciate any and all advice pls. Thanks ever so much.
Hi everyone, I am planning a trip to Cambodia. Any basic tips on where to start with, what to pack, what vaccines should I get (is this really necessary?) and any estimate how much time should I spend on staying there?
I am targeting on visiting Angkor Wat - should a 3 day trip cover everything? I heard the place is so big and you need to visit the place for a couple of days.
Is it safe to travel to Cambodia alone? I am a female on my early 30's.
Any input is greatly appreciated.
Anyone in SR who would want to join us (2 persons) for a birding & floating village visit of Tonle Sap with Sam Veasna? The price decreases with the number of persons. samveasna.org/tours/tonle-sa...
They are a bit like Osmose but look more focused on the birding. If you have experience good or bad of them, let me know!
We can discuss alternative dates if necessary (possibly the 10th Feb).
My partner and I are travelling in Cambodia from Feb 2 to Feb 24. We're from Australia and have never seen a loris before. I know that they are a popular pet in SE asia, I was just wondering if we need to try to find an official sanctuary or whether we can assume we might catch one just by hanging out with some locals?
Thanks in advance,
Can any one tell me is it best to met at hotel or go to airport an met my party? In other words is there a waiting area in airport for this flight? Or should I just met them at the hotel? Again I will be by myself. Has anyone stayed in this hotel?

Hi, Phnom Penh VT,
I read that it is nightmare for pedestrians in Phnom Penh. Is it true at night too? Is it safe to walk from Sothearos Boulevard to Independence Monument at night then?
What is a typical expense for a tuk tuk on a Friday to go through the Angkor Wat complex?
Is it difficult to get last minute bookings as we would like to tour on 20 December 2013?
I booked a hotel at the Capitol Guesthouse will be leaving next day for Battambang. My question anyone stayed there or know of it? I will be risking bus with Capitol are they okay?
A friend and I are looking into renting motorbikes in Bangkok and travelling into Cambodia, stopping at Ankor Wat and then heading south to Phnom Pehn, then back to Bangkok along the coast. We are staying with friends who live in the capitol, so no need for help there.
Does anyone have suggestions about what to see along the route?
Are there great beaches in the south we should check out?
Has anyone taken a motorbike along this route? Are the roads safe for travel?
We planned on doing this in early April- would the weather be good at this time?
Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated.

Can anyone recommend a good clean budget (flashpacker not backpacker) hotel/guesthouse in Phnom Penh?
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 we are after some info on the best bus company for ten people and luggage to go from Phnom Penh to Battambang.
