      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.

      Lunching out while on a tour

      by PandawitchElphie Online Now Feb 28, 2014 at 5:42 AM

      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?

      Advice from your previous trips please

      by PandawitchElphie Online Now 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?

      by adelinemmc Online Now Jan 6, 2014 at 3:12 AM

      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

      Tuk Tuk 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 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

      Are guides available at temple sites?

      by naruto Online Now Dec 14, 2012 at 9:51 PM

      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

      Siem Reap to Phnom Penh by boat

      by schmechi Online Now Oct 2, 2012 at 2:15 AM

      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?
