I am planning a budget trip around the world and one place I want to visit is South Asia. I am planning to start in Siem Reap and backpack to Phuket and then down to Bali.
I am wondering if anyone knows of some good backpacking or hiking trails in that area? I've tried to do some research into the trails there but haven't come up with much.
Here's a few tips for you once you get to Siem Reap. The country is very dense, forest surrounds even the bigger cities in this country. I'd suggest you rent or buy a nice bicycle and hit the road to do some sightseeing.
Last time I was in that area I actually followed these two guides:
Mountain Day Trip
Countryside Cycling Tour
But I wasn't very fond of a 99 dollar trip through the mountains so what I did was bought a bicycle and had a taxi drop me off in the same area. In total it cost me less than 20 bucks, including the food I took with me.
Hope that helps!
