Hi guys

Been thinking about travelling to Cambodia in search for "inspiration" maybe around mid October but I don't have any planned route or idea yet. Just thought it's better to find some companion if anyone is interested to join as well we can look out for each other.

Any guide or tips from previous traveller?
Thanks in advance

I think you need to elaborate on what you mean by "inspiration". It is quite a vague term, makes it hard for those interested to know what kind of traveller you are.

I found Sri Lanka much more inspiring than Cambodia, which to be honest I found a bit commercial and hassley.

Lol that "inspiration" was meant for space out actually, need a non-rushing holiday to help spaced out myself from the daily stress thats all.

If you're looking for travel buddies, perhaps you should fill out your profile a bit or at least say something about yourself here - gender, age, nationality, travel style, budget, likes & dislikes. That might give potential pals some idea of who you are. :)

Well, if you're in Phnom Penh, once you've visited the Killing Fields at Choeung Ek, the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, and visited the Royal Palace, you should explore the contemporary side of the capital.

A short walk from the Royal Palace, is Street 240. There are some quite chi-chi shops and cafés that are perfect for travellers and expats. It's one of the most stylish spots in the city.

Tree, which stands for Training Restaurants for Employment and Entrepreneurship, is a Cambodian charity. It runs some two amazing eateries: Romdeng and Friends. Romdeng, is agreat place to try some local cuisine. They also happen to be one of the best places in town to try some insect-eating - including deep fried tarantulas.

Remember that the average maximum daytime temperature in October is 31 °C (88 °F) with very high heat & humidity. The average night-time temperature is a warm 24 °C (75 °F).
