Are there any guesthouses in Sambor Prei Kuk? Or even homestays or anything like that? I am heading there and would prefer to stay in that area instead of Kompong Thom if possible but have not read of any guesthouses that are actually at Sambor. There were no posts on here mentioning guesthouses there but perhaps someone has been there recently. Thanks in advance.
Are there buses from Siem Reap to Preah Vihear , it's to return the same day or not?
Ariving in PP in a few weeks on a flight from Bangkok
My hotel in on street 172

What do you recommend and how much should I pay
can somebody recommend a nice budget guest house in Stung Treng?
From Vientiane to siem reap
has anyone made a experience with the journey from Laos to Angkor Wat?
Are there any airlines (which I am not finding online), or is there maybe a bus? We are hoping to get that journey done in the begining of this June....
thanks for any help!
My boyfriend and I will be in Siem Reap for his birthday in a couple of weeks. I am looking to organise a nice day for him and would appreciate any suggestions. We are visiting Angkor Wat the previous day.
I have organised a sunshine cocktail cruise and thought about hot air ballooning over Angkor Wat but concerned about safety regulations. Looking for anything really including somewhere nice for dinner.
Your help would be appriated.
Me and my boyfriend have been living in Thailand for about 8 months and are wearing the visa peoples welcome very thin. We leave at the end of May to go to Cambodia, but after a few days at the beach and Angkor Wat we'd really like to head to somewhere we can work in exchange for food and/or accommodation. Not only due to money but also because that's just how we like to meet people and get a better feel of a country.
We have a workaway account but everywhere listed on it in Cambodia seems to either be a school (i just finished teaching for 5 months and have no desire to start again unless its very necessary) or charging a fee. Does anyone have any good recommendations of anywhere that takes volunteers/ workers? Preferably a farm or yoga place but not that fussy really :)
Also good meditation centers or retreats would be great to know.
Thank you very much :)

My trip to Cambodia is getting closer and I m now thinking of making a reservation for the first or the first two nights in SR.
I know that like food and other things hotels are also a very subjective matter. Today I went through the list of places and Mandalay Inn sounds like a reasonable choice. However, it does not hurt to get other opinions and suggestions. HAs anyone stayed there and could tell me and the others how it was? Or what is your favorite budget place. I only need fan rooms with bathroom no need for a/c.
Anyone heard of recently discovered Angkorian temples in the province?
I will be traveling to Cambodia (Siem Reap and Phnom Penh) in 2 weeks and I have a few questions about touring the sites. I will be in Siem Reap for 2.5 days. I've read other threads that recommend tuktuks as a means of transportation. Will I be able to see many of the sites if I hire a tuktuk over the 2.5 days I plan to visit? Would I be better off getting a car for the amount of time I have? I don't need to see every site, but I would like to see the good majority of them - the inner and outer circuits. Also, I've read it's possible to hire a tuktuk through my booked accommodations. How much should I expect to pay for this so I know I'm not getting ripped off?
In addition, I would also like to hire a guide for two days to explain the history and such of the sites. Does anyone have any guide recommendations?
And last, but not least, what should I do with 1.5... more »
I´m looking for a authentic none-touristy Yoga school in Cambodia which also offers teacher trainings.
I don´t wanna end up in some fancy "western-style" yoga school which is too expensive. Yoga is still such a booming industry that it became a money making business and in a lot of places it simply lost its spirit. So, I´m looking for something simple and humble. A family business would be cool. And I don´t care if it´s not a "nice" looking place I´d rather sleep in shacks and experience "real" yoga.
So, if anyone can be of help in finding such a hidden gem - I´d be super thankful icon_smile.gif
Does anyone know if the visa free entry to Vietnam via Ha Tien is still available? Have seen previous reports that it is for the SEZ only, but that it can be used to go to Phu Quoc island. Would like to know before heading over there. Also read one previous LP thorn tree report that it was now being limited to 'Asians' only.
I just arrived in Cambodia and will be working here for 2-3 months. I have some 5 days off now due to public holidays and would like to explore the best beaches and islands in Cambodia.
I've was looking for some info on the internet but there are so many opinions...so not sure anymore, so I'd like to ask you fellow travelers which islands and their respective beaches are the best to visit? Would you recommend any particular accommodation there?
Also, what beach and which accommodation would be best in Siounakville (can't spell sorry) as we were thinking to stay there 2 days and then go for 3 days to one of the islands.
Thanks a lot!
Anyone have contact details for Nick Ray? Met him whilst on a motorbike tour of Laos back in March... but lost his card - plenty to report back to him on dos and donts on northern Laos roads if anyone can get this message to him/forward me a contact email. Thx. P
