Fellows... I will be visiting Angkor Wat in early April, which I understand is pure dry season. I was wondering if the vegetation around the temples becomes dry and not greenish at wall, the moss disappears from the walls where it usually is, and overall the landscape becomes brownish... any comments on this, please?
I'm going to organize an tour to Phnom Kulen for 33 pers. My question is does anyone of you have some tips about Phnom Kulen, because I can't find much information about this trip. I have to tell everything about the park, but can't find good information.
Thanks for your help.
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 ?
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.
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).
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?
Is there a safe and comfortable bus ride from Siem Reap to Bangkok at night? We are a group of 9 planning to spend one full day in Bangkok then return to Siem Reap the next day/
We in a group of 12 (or more) would like to hire a guide and driver with us for only the Angkor Wat temple full day, any good recommend?
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.
Im travelling in Cambodia and my camera has died. I want to buy another and am going to Siem Reap next. Then I fly out to Bangkok, where i transfer to a train, so no time there. I want to buy a Fuji finepix XP 200 if possible. Any suggestions?

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.
I am trying without success to find a 100 usd flight from Siem Reap to Ho Chi Minh City in September. The available ones are around $200. The bus journey is going to take too long, and I am going to trade off scenic views for time. Have you done this trip? Any suggestions?
We'll be there for 3 days and most of the 4th, and would maybe like to take an elephant ride. Is that a super-tacky tourist trap thing?? Or is it worth the price? Oh and what would that price be??
Just wondering if eyebrow threading is common in sr and what places have it.
hi, i will be visiting seam .rheap in from sept 14 till 18. how is the weather and is this enough time to see SR.
Any good hotels and tips.
I have just one day, Sunday 8th September 2013 to spend in Siem Reap.
1. Is anyone else here in VT travelling around SR on the same day? Can I join you?
2. What facilities are there such as day tours for seeing round-the-city and the main attractions?
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?
Help please... can anyone provide details of travelling from Bangkok to Siem Reap by coach. How long does it take. Also cost, and reputable coach company.
Many thanks....... POEPAT
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
Can anyone recomend any restaurants that serve local food?
many thanks in advance
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.
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?
I'll visit Angkor in early March 2013 and I wonder, wether it is necessary to book the flight back to Saigon early in advance or do you think, that I'll be able to book the flight on the same date?
I've always met other VT'ers where ever I go and the last time I was in SR, I met a couple and we became good friends... This was 6 years ago, so I wanted to put it out there for anyone else who is visiting at the same time; I'm game for a chat and a beer if you are..
I am thinking to visit Angkor Wat during the first week of December 2012 where there will be an marathon.
Are the temples still open during the marathon? Is it not a good time to travel?
Grateful to have any advice. Thanks!
