3As previous post, only place in SEA where we found ourselves in trouble was Burma. Of course, if you want you choice of place then you will need to book ahead but if you are not bothered then turning up is fine, even on xmas and NY. If you are looking for a place in Siam Reap then head to Mandalay Guesthouse which is cheap, clean and the staff are amazing.
You can see my post on it in my blog.

5I'm travelling then and I did book ahead, however I'm only travelling for 2 weeks, also if i cancel the booking i'll lose a couple of dollars at worst. However my norm is to not book in advance and based on my experience of booking there appears to be plenty of options right now. Of all the places Kampot was the one that seemed to have the least availability in early Jan, especially in the cheaper places in Kampot itself.
