Going to Cambodia in August for 2 weeks. What is the best to see in that "wet"season? Thank you!! :)
me and my friends will be arriving at Phnom penh in the morning and we plan to go ho chi minh later that day? Is it possible to buy tickets at the airport? if not, then where can we buy the tickets? thank you!
Is the travel agency (tour & bus company) in Phnom Penh reliable?
I'm planning a trip to Cambodia towards the end of next year. I'm currently debating whether doing it independently with guide for Ankor Wat and other temples or going the easy way & using a tour company for the whole thing.
We are 2 and want that holiday to be a cultural one, so emphasis on the temples in depth (not a one hour tour of the 'essentials') + if time Mekong mini cruise with visits + a few days at the beach at the end somewhere in Cambodia or nearby where I can scuba dive while my companion tans on the beach. So I guess we need either a tour ending by a stay at beach or a 100% cultural tour that ends not far from travel hub so we can then head to beach. Would consider a combined Cambodia/South Vietnam tour as long as it is not rushed.
I've seen tours combining with Bangkok but don't want to waste time going via there.
We'll have b/w 15 and 17 days.
Any suggestions welcome!
We need to locate Swedish citizen Sebastian Johansson in cambodia, where he´s been backpacking for the last couple of months. He has problems with depression and we have good reason to be worried about his wellbeing, since a couple of hours ago.
His last known whereabouts were Siankouville (unsure of spelling), a couple of hours busride from Phnom-Penh
We have naturally contacted the Swedish embassy in Phnom-Penh for assistance in the matter, but are hoping to extend our chance of locating him by way of the internet.
The photo below of Sebastian was taken a couple of days ago:
Any and all information you can give, please get in contact with me at either ted.project.bcn(at)gmail(dot)com, or on my twitter, @brilliantApe
I am wondering if you can pay a set cost and have them for a whole day or if you have to find a new one every time you want a ride. If you have to find a new one every time, how hard is it to find one when at a\Angkor Wat or Angkor Thom?
I will be travelling from London to Cambodia/Japan in late May. Are there any special reasons why one would chose to go first to Japan then Cambodia or visit them in the reverse order?

I plan to be in Siem Reap (Angkor Wat mostly), in July for 3 days. I "hear" others talking about guides. From what I can gather, Siem Reap to Angkor Wat is not too far (20 min.?). I thought I could take a taxi/tuttut there, then back again. Is there a need for a guide while in Siem Reap. Adice if you have any. Thanks

Hi all. I am travelling into Cambodia from Vietnam by bus or boat. Do i need a visa before i travel. If not whats the score when i get to the border crossing Cheers Sean
Hi there, we will be travelling around Cambodia in July, just wanted to know if there is a bus that travels between Battambang and Kompong Chhnang and if they run daily, also if you can get a bus from Kompong Chhnang direct to Sihanoukville. Hope you can help. Many Thanks Karen
I am flying out of HCMC and will only be there for a few hours during my drive from Phnom Penh. Does anyone know if they offer a free short term visa or do I have to pay for the entire month?
Last year we traveled in the same periode (July/ August) in Vietnam and the rain fall was not as bad as I thought. Some places were however strongly discouraged in the rainy season. Like the island of Phu Quoc nearby the boarder of Cambodia. We heard that it rained non stop in this periode and didn't visit. Not good for the high spirits :-). Maybe for trekking in the forest of Cardamom too wet? Has anybody visited the south part of Cambodia in July/August and what ar the experiences weather wise? Best regards Donna
Well our hol plans are thrown into turmoil following our decision not to visit Bangkok and Krabi on the last leg of our S E Asia Hol in Jan next year 2013 (only four weeks to go yippee) Ok so heres the question, we are in Phnom Penh for a couple of days and have decided to take a bus to Sihanoukville and Kampot for about ten days in total instead of flying over to Thailand. Does anybody have knowledge of the otres beach area. How far is it from the main town, anything to do except chill on the beach, any bars and restaurants, my research is telling me that it is really underdeveloped but the information seems a couple of years old. Secondly, Kampot. Any advice regarding this area, where to stay in the main town must sees and in particular donts. Thirdly, i have read about a train line that has opened from PP to Sihanoukville , but cant find anything definate. All the bst and good travels POEPAT
Do you know, wether the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Cambodian National Museum are opened on mondays? Unfortunately I found conflicting information on the net and in my guide...
Hi there! I'll be travelling alone to Ho Chi Minh on April and I am planning to have a side trip to Phom Phen and Siem Reap, Cambodia. My flight is Manila - Ho Chi Minh and vice versa. You think it's possible to go to Siem Reap and Phom Phen considering I only have 5 days on this trip and my return flight to Manila is from Ho Chi Minh Vietnam.
Hi, I'll be in Phnom Penh with my brother around New Year's Eve. Are any of you around, and do any of you know where to celebrate it? I've heard the locals do not celebrate, but there must be some party around town? I'd like too meet up with my fellow traveller's! Cheers, Max
Hello all :) I'll be having my honeymoon in early September 2013 (2nd to the 18th to be more exact) and Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia have always been our choice for the honeymoon but we weren't counting on getting married on the monsoon season so that changed our plans on destination, even so, I was looking to hear your thoughts on if Cambodia or even Vietnam could be travelled around those dates? We are nearly sure we will be going to Indonesia which from what we know about the area can give us a almost similar type of travel we would get from our initial plan with the advantage that from what I've read on the internet indonesia is not affected by the monsoons at that time of the year... Would love to hear the thoughts of people who are from or know the area well and know how it usually is in september. Cheers all ;)
Hi All Because of our travelling style, we are planning to just book a driver for our 3 days there. We don't think we want to have a guide with us all of that time, but in the event that we do decide that we just want a guide for only the Angkor Wat temple, are there guides available at the site for hire? If so, what would be a reasonable rate considering it's just guiding for one temple and not the whole day/many sites? Thank you
hi VT's will be visiting Siem Reap by January, but we only got 1 day and 1 night (just a side trip from Bangkok). looking for some recommendations about which spots should we see, aside from the famous Angkor Wat, just for a day. thank you very much
According to this homepage canbypublications.com/cambod... there was a night bus service between Phnom Penh and Sieam Reap operated by Giant Ibis Transport. Unfortunately the operators homepage does not mention this service, so I suppose it is discontinued... Is there any other night service? Which way to travel you'd recommend to go from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap?
