    Is it easy/practical to travel from Kampot to Phu Quoc Island and does it require a visa?

    I did this in 2010 and found it o.k. We travelled from kep over the land boarder and already had visas from Australia organized, so the boarder crossing was easy. Got ripped off by the motor bike riders that took over from the Cambodian tuk tuk driver at the boarder and they told us the ferry wasn't going that day so put us on a bus to reach Gia and charged us about $110 for the bus fare. Which is a little over 2hours. Angry!!!. Once we got to phu quoc though it was good. over 7 years ago

    Travelling to Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam with children

    You really need to do an elephant camp out of luang prabung. I did it wit my wife and two children. Son was 14 and daughter was 8. When you get there, you get introduced to YOUR elephant. From then on, you learn the commands and it is your elephant for the three days. You wash them in the river, feed them, walk them into the jungle to bed etc. they are such beautiful animals and so gentle. I would not leave Laos without doing it, it is something that my kids will never forget, but it spoils them when they look at elephants in the zoo. Reasonably cheap too, as it was inclusive of accommodation and all meals. They get a mahoot license at the end as well. I did it two years ago and it was about $500 for three days for four of us. over 7 years ago

    Going to Bangkok for a number of days,any must-trys?

    Really enjoyed the forensic museum. It was a bit gruesome but sooooo interesting. Costs only about 50 baht and is a great place. It had a very small reference to it in the lonely planet guide, but if you google it, it is not too hard to find and it is near one of the river boat docks. over 7 years ago

    Decided to visit Angkor Wat & Siem Reap. What's a good number of days and what's a must see in Siem Reap?

    You may experience temple overload so to break it up Visit the floating villages, go to a real local food market, break your back on an oxcart trip and have lunch with a local family. Orphanages are becoming real businesses so be aware that you may be doing more harm than good by visiting. Better off to make donations to the hospitals or sitting the street kids down and feeding them rather than buying thier wares as the money never goes to the kids. over 7 years ago

    How safe is Bali at the moment from Terrorist attacks? We are booked to go in July, 2011. We are not nightclubbers and won't be in Kuta!

    You will not have any issues, Bali is no more dangerous than anywhere else in the world in the current world climate. My family and I were in Bali when the 2005 bombs went off and have travelled there several times since and have never felt threatened. I feel more insecure when I visit western countries. Go head north to the hills and have a blast over 7 years ago
