    Is it better to book Angkor tours before or after I arrive in Siem Reap?

    Best way to see the temples of Angkor is by mountain bike. Get away from the roads and the minibuses (and tuk tuks), seek out tracks and trails, hidden villages, approaching the temples from the "blind side" where the crowds are not. Best way to do that is to join a small group with a cycling guide who knows the hidden trails or, if there are more than one of you, pre-book your guide. If there are enough of you, a support vehicle can shadow you on the nearest road carrying water, fruits and tired riders... and tool kits should the bikes go wrong. If this all sounds up your street, let me know and I can find you a good, knowledgeable biking guide over 5 years ago

    were two pretty fit people looking at going on a trekking/bike riding/ canoeing adventure through the mountains/jungle where should we go?

    I live in Cambodia and organise adventures here. You can check out my website at www.symbiosis-travel.com. An excellent adventure is to kayak and bike down the Mekong River from Southern Laos to Phnom Penh, taking a detour to Ratanakiri province, northeast of Cambodia near to Vietnam, to go trekking where there are various mountain tribe people. If interested further, please contact me through my website. about 6 years ago

    Good place to go in Cambodia

    Better to ask where is not good to go in Cambodia! All depends on what you are looking for. Beautiful country with welcoming people. Avoid the land mines in the west. Check out: http://www.symbiosis-travel.com/cambodia/ over 7 years ago

    Other than Angkor Wat, are there other points of interest worth visiting in the Seam Reap area of Cambodia?

    Yes loads! Angkor Wat is just one of hundreds of temples scattered all over Cambodia, many within easy reach of Siem Reap. In addition there is much to see that is not a historical monument, such as a landmine museum, silk weaving village, a cultural centre, many rural Khmer villages, forested mountaintop temples... There are great mountain bike rides to make, elephant safaris, boat trips on the vast Tonle Sap lake to visit sunken forests and mediaeval-aged floating villages. The world's largest breeding ground for the tallest standing flighted bird, the Sarus Crane, is also in Siem Reap province.

    What is the best way to get from Chiang Mai to Phnom Penh?

    There is no direct route - no direct flights or buses. How much time do you have and how much are you happy to spend? The quickest route would be to fly to Bangkok and then from there to Phnom Penh. over 7 years ago

    is it true that the angkor wat will soon be closed to public?

    As if! They earn far too much money from it to close it down. Some parts of the temples get closed from time to time for restoration. Even if they did close Angkor Wat itself, there are literally hundreds of other temples to visit, mostly concentrated around Siem Reap, but also scattered all over Cambodia. See my website for some ideas on the how and where to visit. www.symbiosis-travel.com over 7 years ago
