      First solo trip to SE Asia advice needed! !

      Cambodia May 14, 2015 at 11:46 AM

      Hi! I'm planning on taking my first trip to SE Asia for about 7 weeks (I'm 20, F) and going solo. I was hoping to hit cambodia, vietnam, philippines, and indonesia. I did some research and found great hostels in each place but am unsure about how to even approach the trip (I've gone to Africa solo before but stayed in one place which made it easy). While I want to have the freedom to go wherever whenever i want, Im not exactly comfortable with wandering solo looking for a place to sleep. Does anyone have any opinion on whether or not booking in advance is a good/bad idea, and maybe how long I'd want to spend in each place? Also, any ideas on the best way to travel from country to country?



    • How do we spend 8 Days in Siem Reap?

      Siem Reap Feb 22, 2015 at 1:17 PM

      We don't have choice because of seat sale that we availed which covers 8 days in Siem Reap. I think that would be way too long and we might get impatient once we have already toured major attractions of Siem Reap. We will be staying in Mandalay Inn Siem Reap. Can you please suggest other places to visit after Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Bayon, etc? We are afraid that on our 5th day, there will be no more places to see after we covered the popular ones. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance.

      Which hotel?

      Siem Reap Dec 29, 2014 at 1:14 PM

      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?

      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 and and

      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!

      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

      Siem Reap Jul 22, 2014 at 1:00 PM

      Many reviews for the hotels in tripadvisor recommend getting the tour guides at the hotel, not my usual practice. However, i am concerned about the weather in my September visit and would like more arrangement flexibility. Assuming I stay at a decent hotel, would hotel arrangements be wise?

      Getting around Angkor Wat with limited mobility

      Angkor Wat Jun 26, 2014 at 5:41 PM

      Hi, Im planning to have a quick trip to Angkor wat the first week of august (2 days).
      I use forearm crutches to walk and have a bit of a problem climbing too many stairs, a few are ok. I can walk long distances slowly stopping to rest a couple of times along the way.
      My question is... is it worth the trip? I understand I will not be able to do many things in there I want to know if I will be able to enjoy the basic parts and temples? or also if you know a tour company that I can contact who makes a special itinerary for my situation?

      Thank you for your help! Anything will be greatly appreciated.

      Advice from your previous trips please

      Siem Reap Jan 28, 2014 at 4:05 PM

      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.

      Day tour of Tonle Sap on 13 Feb 2013?

      Hi all
      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.

      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).

      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.
      Many thanks
