Hi all ,
me and my girlfriend just arrived home after our 1st trip to Cambodia.We spent a month in what i can only describe as the most weird and wonderful country we have ever visited.
We are already planning our next trip there in about 8 months time and are hoping to spend 2 months there( including Laos).
We went to Phnom penh , Siem reap ,Sihanoukville , Kampot and Kep. Spending roughly a week in each place.
It really is an amazing place with amazing people and if your maybe thinking of going we would highly recommend it.
thanks to vegasmike for the info before we went.thanks to travellerspoint for the lowdown on the country and thanks to the cambodian people and the travellers that we met along the way for making it a holiday that we will never forget.

That's good news for me, I'm heading to Cambodia in April and can't wait (even though I understand it's the hottest time of the year).
Thanks for the excitement-boost! Hope my experience will be as good as yours.

Good news for sure. Probably go there later this year, November or so.

Any specific recommendations, like places to stay, transport, food and going out, things to do and see, especially rewarding trips etc.

I'm so pleased you had such a wonderful time.

I am heading to Cambodia in December time...whilst on our trip to Thailand.

Any hotel recommendations in Phnom penh and Siem reap?

We're going to spend Christmas day near Angor Wat (my boyfriend wants to get Christmas Day morning and watch the sunrise over Angor Wat...again any recommendations on where to do this?

I spent New Years in Phnom Penh in the Paragon Hotel, which was on the river. Pretty cheap (as is most hotels), next to an Internet Cafe and only a short tuk tuk ride from the Markets

I did go to Siem Reap, but stayed out of town at a school where I was part of a large volunteer group.
