| » Decent gaff in SR near Bar Street? |
Jan 19, 2015 - 1:38 PM - by Baas Babelaas |
Hi to all. |
Off to see the Siem Reaper tomorrow.
Previously stayed in a very nice hotel, but the price has gone up to $60/night.
So I'm looking for a cheaper gaff $15-25/night, near Bar Street.
AC not necessary, as the weather is great now. A pool would be nice.

Jan 18, 2015 - 5:04 PM - by terry57 |
I have seen many Khmer Monuments within Thailand and Cambodia but I have never seen one so completely restored as Phanom Rung. Hence why I am doing a new thread on it and not including it in my North East tour thread. I was fascinated by this monument, it took the Thais 17 years to complete the restoration and what a job they have done. Anyone who has been here and has any interest at all in these monuments must be blown away. It sits on the summit of a spent volcano with views over into... [Read More] |

Jan 08, 2015 - 1:11 PM - by Davis Knowlton |
The Feast of The Black Nazarene kicks off in Manila tomorrow. Basically, this little slice of religious insanity involves slightly more than 10 MILLION Filipinos descending on Manila for about three days, trampling each other to try to touch a statue of some black guy. |
Then, four or five days later the Pope, whose church has done the best possible job of keeping Filipino families poor for centuries, shows up for a four-day frenzy of lunacy. Six MILLION are expected just to hear one... [Read More]

Jan 06, 2015 - 10:04 AM - by Bobcock |
Just been on another photography trip to India, fantastic as always, managed to achieve something I really wanted to do, which was to get permission to use a tripod in the Harminder Sahib in Amritsar, which is quite restricted. Also stayed in the Taj Palace, Mumbai which is just fantastic, the only 5 start hotel I have ever stayed in that really is everything it is cracked up to be. |
I'm not going to post pic after pic, I'm just going to post a selection of the best, one by one,... [Read More]

Jan 06, 2015 - 5:28 AM - by Lancelot |
After a couple of months back in the good old USA, I decided that I wanted to travel more- so I headed south to Guatemala |
Arrived at Guatemala City around midnight, so I stayed the night then caught a shuttle bus to Antigua the next day.
Antigua is mostly a tourist town, but still enjoyable and affordable. The exchange rate is 7.6 Quetzals; 330ml beers are... [Read More]

While Thailand may be in our future .... here is where we have been for a couple of years or so. Not sailors or yachties .... landlubbers mostly. We have been out on others S/Vs & I built a small 6 meter power cathere to play in our lagoon .... nice days farther out. In my younger years I dabbled as an Alaskan commercial fisherman about 20 years .... all power vessels up to 120 feet. |

Jan 04, 2015 - 1:15 PM - by terry57 |
A few weeks ago the hand bag and I completed a really nice 2 K road trip through the North East. We flew to Sakon Nakon with AirAsia on their opening special of 800 baht each. Spent two days in Sakon and then Bus to Khon Kaen where two days later we picked up our hire car and started a ten day road trip finishing back in Bangkok. We followed the Mekong along the Lao border and along the Cambodian border before heading back in land at Kantharalak. Last night spent in Sa kaeo before the run back... [Read More] |

Oft overlooked this hidden gem stretching from the heathen Marches to the gentle slopes of the Peak District |
In the heart of Englad yet happily free of Northern social grimers nor dissimilitude to Southern loucheness, no day trippers in London Lycra despoiling the vistas.
A land to be uncovered,,savoured,it's crevices to be explored
Let us begin where Sir Gawain met the Green Knoght as the modern vernacular was born near the Dane.

Jan 03, 2015 - 10:34 AM - by runner |
My 30 day stamp expires today so I am exporting myself to Taiwan for a few weeks. Weather there is in the low 20s and looks ideal for exploring the island's mountains. Not sure if I'll log into here again until I return later in the year but many thanks to the many friendly members here. |

Frig it, I may as well run it alongside Burilam Boy's, bored of sunbathing now |
Right, here's the 2 reasons I went, it was great not having a nagging Missus to drag along for once, had a great time with these two.
