      Travel from Bangkok to Siem Reap

      Siem Reap Nov 18, 2015 at 4:00 PM

      What is the best way? How long does the train take? Not too expensive but don't want to spend all day traveling, not enough time.
      Should travel be booked in advance or while in Bangkok?

    • Temples of Angkor on a bicycle?

      Angkor Wat Sep 13, 2015 at 9:31 AM


      I´m going to Siem Reap in mid November and I´m, of course, going to see the Temples of Angkor. I will stay in a hotel in Seim Reap.

      I don´t like participating in group tours, I prefer to discover new places on my own so I can take my time.

      And I´ve read a lot and I would like to discover the temple area on a bicyle. Is it possible to hire a bicyle and do it on my own? Is it safe and easy?

      How long time will it take fron Siem Reap to Angkor Wat by bicyle and is it easy to navigate?

    • Help with hotel in Siem Reap

      Siem Reap Sep 3, 2015 at 12:59 PM

      I´m going to Siem Reap in mid November.
      Will stay there for 5 nights and I will, of course, visit Ankor Wat and the temple area for a couple of days, visit Siem Reap and do some sightseing.

      Another importand thing is to chill, relax and load my batteris by the pool on a nice resort.

      The hotel is very important for me. I´m looking for a nice hotel with a great pool and I´ve found two good places but I can´t decide. Saem Siemreap Hotel or Lotus Blanc Resort. Both with very nice reviews on TripAdvisor.

      But I´m a little bit concerned of the location. They are both located outside the city center, especially Lotus Blanc Resort.
      And I´m also a little bit concerned about the pool on Saem Siemreap Hotel. That the pool is located in the shadow between the buildings.

      Any experiences on any of these two hotels?

      How important is the location of the hotel? Or is it so small so I can take a tuk tuk wethever I want? Or is it a disadvantage to have a hotel outside the city center.

      Any other suggestions?

      Today I also found Memoire d' Angkor Boutique Hotel which is located a little bit closer.

    • Travelling with a 12 yr old | Vegetarian food

      Siem Reap Aug 20, 2015 at 4:09 AM

      Hello VT,

      My wife and I intend to travel to Siem Reap in November with our 12 year old son. It would be a dedicated Angkor Wat visit, want to spend most of the time, about 4 days, at the temple complex during the daytime.

      The best way for us to get there seems to be a flight into SR from Bangkok, but some of them do not reach in day times. Is it ok to reach in late evening or at night?

      We would want to stay in a happening active neighbourhood where we could entertain ourselves and the child in the evenings. Stepping out on the street and wandering about town are actually fine, so we are a little apprehensive of the larger hotels/properties. On the flip side, larger hotels possibly have better in-compound activities from a child's point of view. So suggestions would be welcome about the choice of hotel.

      We are lacto-vegetarians and are somewhat concerned about the ease of finding our kind of food. We have never traveled in SE Asia, except Sri Lanka where it was tough finding vegetarian food. I have heard that vegans are either frowned upon or are rendered a laughing stock in Cambodia ;-) hence would like to know.

      Any comments, suggestions to help us make the most out of our trip would be welcome.

      Thanks and cheers!

      Siem Reap to Phnom Penh by boat

      Siem Reap Jun 26, 2015 at 9:57 AM

      Looking to travel to Phnom Penh from Siem by boat in mid / late January. Have heard contradicting reports that water levels may be too low.??, and that Angkor Express is the only option.
      Firstly, is this a reasonably reliable service.?....taking late departures and adverse weather as the norm.
      Secondly, is there storage on board for a large dive bag...or will I end up sitting on it on the roof.? ( that appeals.!)
      I could take the bus, but a long, wild and probably unpredictable venture across the Cambodian countryside on water really appeals. One other thing....does it leave from the centre of Siem Reap.?....and where does it terminate in Phnom Penh....(is it fairly central).?
      Any advice, tips or suggestions greatly appreciated. Solo travel with no kids or family in tow, so used to roughing it.!!
      Many thanks

      Hotels in Siem Reap

      Siem Reap Jun 21, 2015 at 10:29 PM

      Can someone advise me about hotels in Siem Reap? My adult daughter and I will be staying for three nights in July. I have tentatively booked at Diamond d’Angkor Boutique Hotel but my travel agent has suggested either Angkor Heritage Boutique Hotel or Hollywood Angkor Boutique Hotel, both of which are quite a bit cheaper. I want somewhere that is not too far off the beaten track with easy access to markets, and the major tourist attractions.

    • 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.

      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?

      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

      Getting around Angkor Wat with limited mobility

      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.
