    quickest way out of Siem reap to bangkok

    Hey Josh - The quickest way would definitely be to take a bus from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh and then hop a plane from Phnom Penh to Bangkok (quite cheap flights). However, if you choose to bus it, like you said you will have to take a bus to the border and change to a second one to Bangkok. It can be a bit dodgy, so take precautions at night. over 9 years ago

    Bangkok to Phnom Penh

    There is a bus that goes between the two - with a change of buses at the border. It's definitely the cheapest option, but takes a good half of a day. The easiest way to go is to fly - you can also get a visa upon arrival at the Phnom Penh airport. over 9 years ago

    Where can I find a beach in thailand not on phuket, small quaint

    Koh Phi Phi is probably your best bet. Having been to the islands on both coasts, it has the best combination of white sand, sprawling beaches and secluded spots. You can join in the hubbub and nightlife of the little town, but can also remove yourself from the crowd as well - it was by far my favorite island in Thailand. Make sure you take the hike up to the top of the mountain for sunset. over 9 years ago

    1st time in Thailand for three weeks in Feburary What activities / Towns /Islands / Tours are best budget?

    If you have 3 weeks I would only spend a few days in Bangkok (big, load tourist city). Then I would head north to Chiang Mai - there are some great Thai cooking courses, Muay Thai boxing gyms, and markets - depending on your interests. From there you can continue on the Chiang Rai to take a trek, visit the hill tribes, and check out the Golden Triangle. To get a bit back on the beaten track, I would recommend Koh Phi Phi for an island stay. over 9 years ago

    I will be in Darwin for a few days in July.What should I do or see?

    Hey Barry, July is supposed to be one of the best times to Visit Darwin. Make sure that you make it out to Litchfield National Park and do the Croc Jumping Boat Cruise. Also, spend a few days exploring Kakadu National Park - take a boat ride in the Corroboree billabong to see all the lotuses in bloom, swim at the bottom of the numerous waterfalls, and don't miss the 360 degree lookout point. In Darwin, you can cage dive with crocs at Crocosaurus Cove, catch a movie at the outdoor Deckchair Cinema, or head over to the Mindil Beach markets on Thursday and Sunday nights. It is definitely worth the trip! about 9 years ago
