    Silly questions:

    Visa on Arrival? Cost? Currency?

    Should I take USD? Are there ATM's etc?

    Departure Tax at the airport?

    Any other "admin" details I should think about?

    No, I'm big into zoos and aquariums. And reading the Tripadvisor report that sounds like it's really well done (it's more of a rehabilitation centre than a zoo).

    I would surprise you with my depth Boo, but the trouble is you're normally doggy paddling in the shallow end.

    ^^ condoms, take a large pack in case you can't get decent ones there. Oh, and lots of zanax for the hangovers...

    ^ I've never been a good swimmer, so prefer to doggie paddle in the shallow end with my inflatable wings.

    How do I post these pictures???

    Take USD to pay for your visa or get an E-Visa ($35) online. VOA is $30 now. There's ATMs everywhere. No departure tax. You can get pretty much anything in the pharmacies here. Xanax is stupid for hangovers. It doesn't help with pain at all and you'll probably be too tired to go out again. Get yourself some Dicodin 60. Opiates are the only way to go.

    How long are you staying H ?

    I reckon you'll hate it alone there after 2 nights.

    I've been once with a friend, 6 years ago for a weekend, full of the lowest life you could ever happen upon, that's the Barangs you'll be watchimg footy with BTW.

    That was just my experience though, getting chucked out of a nightclub for telling the security what i thought.

    I'll never go back there TBH, dirty old town, but I will leave you with these tips:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?hl=en-G...&v=gMMgIqW9vso

    Take US Dollars and many small denominations of them, they're accepted more than their own 1:4000 currency

    Sit near the front of the plane and walk fast when you get off, you wont need that E Visa then. Google Cambodia e-visa scams and you will get my gyst.

    hire a tuk tuk driver to be on your beck and call, They are cheap as chips and they will show you everything and warn you about their fellow Cambodians scams of which there are many, keep you away from the unsavoury characters who lurk looking for pissed up Arsenal fans at 5am, plus they speak good English

    Cambodians on the whole are nice people, you're more likely to be mugged by some Aussie with a sob story about him not having enough for his flight home

    the killimg fields is a bit shit

    I've got a hangover and the squirts from mojitos, som tum, and oysters on the beach last night. I just ate a Codeine and it'll cure both in about 15 mins. I'll have a normal day and hit the gym now rather than laying around and licking my wounds.

    I beg to differ with Dillie. The Killing Fields experience is much better these days. Was there a couple of months ago and the place has really lifted its game. A walking tour with the thing round your neck and people who experienced it speak at each stopping point about their personal experience whilst in there.

    There are some nice up market restaurants within a tuktuk ride for a buck or two. Look em up on line. Still very cheap and the scenery in PP is a lot French colonial build type. Plus the usual baguets everywhere.

    Hiring a day long tuk tuk driver is a good idea as well. Watch out at the airport for the drivers who ask where you want to go, pan the place you name and try and steer you elsewhere. Just insist on it and there will be no drama.

    I quite liked the place, especially the second time. Golden House was my gaff both times. Lots of up and down market bars in 136 street and the goils are friendly.

    that's big bucks for PP - I usually stay in the $6 rooms, plenty of them about, and fine for taking skanks back to !

    Silver River was an OK choice 6 or 7 years ago, but they've built so many much nicer places that are cheaper in the interim that it's gone out of consideration.

    It seems the Town View has a problem with stuff going missing from safe boxes. So onwards and upwards:

    Heading back over myself next week but this time to Sihanoukville staying at Queenco casino which is supposed to be pretty good.

    There appear to be two Lux's.

    Which one?

    I hope The Fox doesn't feature again on here, its an institution that people prize and has survived partly because it doesn't offer feature on boards I think. Paddy rice is OK for watching sport but they don't have much nouse when searching for events and Score bar over in St 278, just off Pasteur in BKK1 is much better although more expensive. It also has several excellent pool tables and is a huge custom built place and very nice. The Killing Fields is much better now with the commentary on headphones but it's a shit of a ride out there in a tuk tuk.

    I found the Tuk Tuk ride a breeze and an opportunity to see the countryside. Not sure about the Fox bar, I was living about 4 doors down and never ventured in as it looked a dive. If the Ganja is it's main claim to fame i won't be going inside any time soon. Agree the killing Fields was good with headphones. I took a lot of photos there but people back home were not impressed. History is what it is and can''t be changed. I think I will be back in Cambodia again to look around more.
