We are visiting Cambodia in November. There are three of us (Hubby, Son and Me) We will be visiting my son’s friend in Phnom Penh whilst staying in a central hotel for a couple of days before moving on to Siem Reap.
I am wondering if anyone can give an opinion whether it is better to fly to Siem Reap from Phnom Penh, or if it is more rewarding travelling by taxi. To be honest there isn’t a huge amount of deference in time or cost for that matter. It’s more about if the experience of a taxi…
We are flying to HCM on the 10th November we are staying there for a couple days then flying down to Pho Quoc for a week. We have travelled all over Vietnam ,some of Cambodia,Laos and Thailand. What we are wanting to do is get a slow boat from Phnom Penh down the Mekong to Vietnam? Is this possible? If we cant what are the islands around Sihanoukville like? We dont mind travelling with the locals either or staying in 2-3 star hotels. Hope someone has some advice
We are 4 couples travelling together over Cambodia and Vietnam. We plan staying for 3 nights in Siem Reap in mid Dec. In all probability, we should be in boutique property a little away from the city centre.
Can we hire a 11 or 9 seater mini van to go around the temples including the distant ones plus also commute to the city centre and back.
Recommendations of agencies with details appreciated
We are 4 couple friends planning a vacation in Dec to Cambodia and Vietnam. We would prefer to stay in a boutique hotel in and around Siem Reap where we should be for 3 nights in mid Dec. Would prefer hotels with personalised service and focus on decor and ambience. We are planning to hire a mini van for the duration of our stay and hence a max of 5-8 kms away from the city centre may be well worthwhile.
Appreciate recommendations please.
I am just back from Cambodia where I travelled from Kompong Thom to Siam Reap, via Sambor Prei Kuk, Preah Khan (Kompong Sway), Preah Vihear Khan, Koh Ker and Beng Mealla. For this part of the journey I used Cambodia TTAK, a small operator based in Kampong Thom. Before arriving in Kamong Thom I had exchangede-mails with Mr Vothea (who I believe is the owner of Cambodia TTAK) about the details of my trip and I was definitely not disappointed.
I can only recommend Cambodia TTAK. Mr Vothea was very…
Would it be realistic or even possible to get the ferry from Siem Reap down to the Mekong Delta in Southern Vietnam. I understand there would be a border crossing in there but it would be very interesting.
Also interested in any experiences of the ferry from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh?
Is there many things to see? It it comfortable? Is it worth the money or better to travel by bus or train?

Reliable driver Cambodia. Hi, I go to Cambodia for NGO work as a teacher and we have an amazing driver who we've used for many years on trips with kids, school groups ( he can organise other drivers) families and solo. He has a van, this week we have a nearly new Mercedes , great English, VERY good rates. He speaks fairly good English and knows the country and city well, so I thought I'd add his details here. He'll do trips to the coast or just around town. Oudom Seng <email@example.com>
There's a backpacker bar called "Otres Corner Bar Last Hippie Standing" that now refuses entry to Cambodians (and all Asians) three nights a week. The owner of the bar defends this policy saying "We ban all Asians." He says they have themed parties three nights a week, and Asians "can't handle drinks and drugs" and "can't socialize normal way."
Hi TT people!
Tomorrow I'm headed to siem reap. I'm looking for PERSONAL recs for a good guide to Angkor. Obviously my guest house can set me up with one, but I'm hoping to connect with someone who other travelers highly recommend. Someone who can not only take me to temples, but with a stories as well. Thanks in advance!
