[quote=“Hann”]I am heading there soon to get away from this Taipei weather, and wondering if anyone has some recomendations on spots to see, beaches to chill, places to stay or off the beaten track goodies? I have read the LP and looking for a trip to get away for a while. Have about a month so any help is all good.
We did the BK-Siem Riep-PP-Sihanoukville-Trat-BK loop last CNY. The Angkor area is a highlight of my life, but we tried cramming far to many temples into 2.5 days and decided to bail on the third. Take your time and enjoy a few places, its much better than running about. Stayed at Two Dragons (as we knew the guy, who also has the Tales of Asia website, an sweet resource on SE asia). Very nice and cheap.
PP is interesting, although pretty sketchy at night (don’t ask), do not submit to the touts!, read up on your history and visit Tol Sleung and the killing fields to put your life into perspective.
Sihanoukville is dead, the way a beach resort should be. Beautiful on the water bungalows @ Cloud Nine on Ocheuteal Beach. Very nice and relaxing, jsut ignore the motodop nazis.
Actually maybe you’ve noticed a reoccuring theme. Ignore the touts and scammers (especially that bastard at Poipet Immigration) and your life will be fine and Cambodia an incredibly enjoyable and beautiful place.
PM or repost if you have any specific questions.
