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.

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
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!

I realize that there are boats going from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh. Do they also pass the floating villages like Chang Kneas? Or would it be necessary to do a daytrip from Siem reap to visit these villages? Are there even tour operators offering boat tours from Siem Reap to the floating villages continuing to Phnom Penh?
BTW: If you compare the floating villages with Vietnamese floating markets... Which one are more worth seeing?

We are planning a trip to Cambodia and two of our members have mobility problems.

Short walks, a mile or less?
I will be going to Siem Reap in early September. I am aware it is the rainy season and I am expected to get wet. This is the only time I can get there and cannot go home to the wife and kids this trip. I work overseas as an Expat, the question I have is what fruits are in season during this time, September 5th to 11th? I am a huge fan of Rambutan, Durian, Mangosteen, sapodilla (Never tried) ,milk fruit (Never tried), pineapple, papaya, and mangos.
Am I going to have difficulty eating these fresh delicious morsels?
I am planning traveling from Siem Reap to Ho Chi Minh City at the end of the month. Quick question: Is it a long arduous trip & is it expensive. Advice welcome. Cheers. J
