More Useful Cambodia Information and FAQs
Can you book buses, taxi transfers and onward flights before arriving in Cambodia? Yes, you can. There is a site called 12 Go Asia which allows you to do this from your home country. That way you have reservations and everything is paid for in advance. They’re a huge company. You can even book a taxi from Bangkok to Siem Reap.
Can you book tours in and around Cambodoa in advance? Again, yes. We are big fans of this site for booking all sorts of tours and transfers. This allows you to pay online with your card, have the backup of a big company with guarantees, and avoid all local scams, rip offs and haggling.
Can you pay for many things using your credit card in Cambodia? Yes in the bigger cities and tourist areas. Availability of credit card transactions is growing. For markets, local shops, tuk tuks and street food you will need cash.
Is card skimming a problem in Cambodia? Nothing like this has ever happened to us in Cambodia, but yes, it’s a possibility, be careful.
Are pick pockets a problem in Cambodia? We have never had any problems of this kind in Cambodia either. However, it pays to be sensible. Take a look at a few anti theft travel accessories here.
Hotels and Hostels We Can Recommend
In Siem Reap we can warmly recommend Garden Village Guesthouse, a budget but rather nice guest house, with pool and on-site food. We and many other family travellers have used this place as a base in Siem Reap.
