Hello, do you know how to buy Snake wine on Internet ? Thank you.
I'll be travelling alone to Ho Chi Minh on April and I am planning to have a side trip to Phom Phen and Siem Reap, Cambodia. My flight is Manila - Ho Chi Minh and vice versa. You think it's possible to go to Siem Reap and Phom Phen considering I only have 5 days on this trip and my return flight to Manila is from Ho Chi Minh Vietnam.
I'm scheduled to arrive in Siem Reap on November 13 (and leave on November 16, originally to go to BKK, but will have to figure out if that is still feasible). In the news relating to the Bangkok/Thailand flooding I read that Angkor experienced some flooding as well.
Can anyone tell me if there is still flooding in Angkor and if there is anything I should be aware of?
Thank you for any information.
I shall be on my solo Siem Reap tour for a week in July. I wonder how to travel there economically. I have strong legs and can do 15 Kms a day.
I request experienced tourists to guide how I can see attractions there economically, should I use Tuk-Tuks or cars for short distance to Angkor complex or what?
Hi - any suggestions on the best / quickest / cheapest to get from Chiang Mai to Siem Reap that does not involve flying? Thanks, Paul
Looking for some recommendations for a cheap(ish) guesthouse in Siem Reap for a week in March. Price range US$20-$30.....clean, close to the old market, and a pool would be nice :-)
I'm in Yangon just about to head back to Bangkok and would like some information on the most direct overland route to take to Siem Reap and out via Pheon Phen to avoid the high air tikets or in and out of Siem Reap. Thanks
We will be visiting Siem Reap for only three or four days in mid December and would appreciate advice on hotels in the central city area that are relatively quiet (No noisy music/bar), clean and under AU$50 per night.
Can anyone please advise if there is a flight from Siem Reap direct to Yangon or are they all via Bangkok or other major cities. We will be landing in Bangkok and after a few days there wish to combine a trip to Myanmar with time at Siem Reap or one or two other cities in the region. Any advice would be appreciated.
looking at staying at this hotel with my wife and kids. The website says it is closer to the temples but a little out of town. Does this matter (assume I can just get a tuktuk into town) or is it better to be right in the centre?
i have been trying to email MOTHERHOME G/H to make a booking but am not receiving replies.
i have tried all the e-mail addresses on their website, sofar no luck
does anyone know anything about MOTHERHOME G/H and how to contact them
thanks for any help
need help getting from phuket to Siem Reap. I was thinking flying into Bangkok and taking the only flight (ridiculous) offered. I was wondering if flying into Malaysia and taking a flight from there would be cheaper? If it is cheaper do you think it will be worth the extra time? Or does someone know a better way in general? Money is not a huge issue but I would like to save if possible. Thanks in advance.
I know it's rainy season but will I enjoy the temples when it's like this? Thanx.
I'm looking at flights from BKK to REP and it's giving me a price of 306 USD for round trip. This seems like a lot, is this the standard price?
Does anyone have any idea how much it will cost approx from bangkok airport to the cambodian border by taxi. we are going to Siem reap [angkor temples] thank you ror all the feed back
can anyone advice me if you can get a flight from phuket to siem reap and if so approx how much.Me and my husband are going to phuket in late march and then onto cambodia.
I'm flying from Bangkok to Siem Reap, spending 2 maybe three days at the ruins, and then flying back to Thailand. Do I need a Visa? How do I get one? Are they expensive?
I'm doing a 2 1/2 week trip to thailand and wanted to see if I could make it over to Cambodia for a few days. I will end up in Bangkok for the last part of the trip (the time I would plan to go to Siem Reap). My only real option is to fly, otherwise I will lose to much time. Am I getting caught up in trying to do too much or is a 3 day trip economically feasible and not exhausting?
I would like to find out where I can buy school supplies in bulk from reliable wholesalers in Siem Reap, as I am visiting some schools and orphanages.
Would really appreciate any info :)
Hi, we are two ladies planning to go to Siem Reap. We have a limited budget for our trip so we can't splurge but still want to have a great time. Hope any of you can help answer some questions on the following :
1. How much to rent a tuk-tuk for the day?
2. Do I need a tour guide when I visit Angkor Wat & Angkor Thom?
3. Where is the best place to change money; bank, money changer?
4. Any good & inexpensive Khmer & French restaurants in the city?
Thanks in advance for your help :)
can't decide between a 20$ hotel with no pool and a 50$+ with pool.
Am considering the following options:
Golden Banana, Auberge Mont Royal,Casa Angkor, La Noria, Borann,Claremont
We are a 50-6- yr old couple and we are not interested in massages or luxurious places,but just homey and comfortable, clean and a/c
any recommendations most welcome.
I'm currently is Siem Reap and will be on my way to Bangkok in a few days. I'm told that the cost to hire a driver and car from SR to the Thai border (Poiphet) is35 USD (for the entire car, not per person) and now only takes about 1.5-2 hours. Then after crossing the border take a 6 hour bus to Bangkok for9 USD. Is this true? Has anybody travelled this overland route recently? How did you go about it?
Seat61 suggests the train from the border to BKK but I'm told here that the bus is recommended. This info is from my guesthouse and tomorrow I'm gonna shop around for prices but would like to know the latest info from anyone. I checked out the forums but most are rather old given the upgraded paved conditions of some roads here. I could pay about12 USD for bus the whole way from SR-BKK but was told its about 12 hours total and rather grueling! Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Hello everyone advise really appreciated on the below
We have been quoted £63 as the price for a visa into Vietnam by our travel agent this seems really expensive. We are in Siem Reap for one day a Monday would it be possible to get one there? Does it take a long time to arrange? Is it a lot cheaper?
Are there other alternatives? Can I get it online cheaper. I typed Visa Vietnam into a search engine and a lot of sites came up but I wondered if they were scams. How do I find a safe cheap site?
Thank you Vicki
Thanks everyone for your advice I have decided to take the boat trip.
We are in Sien Reap on 4th of Apri, 2009 we need to get down to Phnom Penh. I have been trying to find out whether it would be better to go by boat or bus. I have read some pretty bad write ups on the boat trip. People stating the boats over sell their tickets and the trip being tedious with very little to see, boat or bus. I would be grateful for advice before making a decision.
Also accommodation in both Sien REap and Phnom Penh. I would like a place with a little swimming pool if possible and reasonable. Thanks in anticipation.
I'd like to spend 5 days in Siem Reab in January. My plan is to spend 2 days outside of Siem. Therefore I'd like rent a motorbike or scooter. Any one have idea how much it can cost and when I can rent it? Thak you for your advices.
we are on a limited budget and would like to visit either Chong Kneas or Kompong Phluk.
a daytrip by taraboat to KP is about53 and a 1/2 day trip by taraboat to CK is about23
has anyone done any of these trips and which one is the more interesting CK or KP
is there much difference between CK and KP to justify the price-difference
thanks for any information
