Jump to whichever post you like from our Cambodia travel blog section. All of our content on travelling in Cambodia is here. Getting to Cambodia from surrounding countries in South East Asia, places, towns, cities and attractions to visit in Cambodia and the practicalities of food, lodging, handling money and getting around.
Can you book buses, taxi transfers and onward flights before arriving in Cambodia? Yes, you can. There is a site called 12 Go Asiawhich 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.

Everyone knows about the Bamboo Railway in Battambang, but there are many more things to do and see in this cool Cambodian town. It’s the second largest town in the country and lies in the heart of rice growing country. Despite it’s size, Battambang retains its quiet riverside charm and remnants of French colonial architecture, […]
We loved Battambang, this is the sort of town that’s great to just hang out for a few days, or weeks. It has a good vibe, quieter streets and a lovely riverside walk with a playground for the kids ( and grown ups!). The area around Battambang is also wonderful to explore, you’ll find […]
I’ve never experienced internet as bad and as unpredictable as here in Kampot Cambodia, anywhere ( this was before our last trip to India!). OK, it was really bad in our guest house in Phnom Penh, but we left after 1 night so it didn’t really have time to get to me, but Kampot, on […]
One of the many wonderful things about travelling the world is discovering new dishes and cooking methods. The ultimate way to get to know a country’s culinary specialities is to take a cooking class, you will find these in almost every city or town you visit and they’re well worth spending a few dollars and […]
I posted today about our cookery course in Battambang, Cambodia. It was a fabulous experience. As part of the tour we visited the local market, something we do often, but on this occasion we stayed longer than usual and took more photos. I’m publishing these photos separately because sensitive viewers may find them a little […]
It’s a lot easier to get from Bangkok to Siem Reap Cambodia now than it was back in 2000. The last time we travelled overland in South East Asia we had to cross the border on the back of a pick-up truck. These days you can do it in relative comfort by direct bus, train, […]
Our week in Siem Reap, Cambodia had it’s ups and downs. A family travel rollercoaster, dazzling highs and anxious, dark (literally) lows, so let’s keep it real and share it as it really was. This is one of those “what we’ve been doing on the road” posts, so lots of chatty stuff about us and […]
