Siamreap's little gem

by cigarettebarbie about Bou Savy Guesthouse

We had a great stay at BS. The owner spoke excellent english. There was a quaint little cafe at the premises. BS is located far away from the hustle-and-bustle of the roads that most guesthouses have.

It is a little pricey at 15USD for a double and 18USD for a triple. But you get clean sheets, complimentary water in the morning, and even cable tv! Attached bathroom too.

If i remember correctly, they are contactable at If I am wrong, they are on one of those websites. Just google them.

True Khmer Experience

by neogary about Bou Savy Guesthouse

Had 4 nights of hassle free stay at Bou Savy. Though not near the old market and town centre area, its still easy enough to reach by foot. Family running the guesthouse were friendly, rooms are of good size, we had a twin room with 2 beds and toilet was very clean.

Rooms comes with Cable TV and mini fridge. Good value.

Could do better with their food though, didn't seem to have many guests eating there, anyway, there're so many good food around.

Recomended. They'll top up drinking water in your room daily, which was good with the kinda weather there.

Siem Reap Trip

by hass74

Visited Cambodia from 11 to 16 Mar 2007. Got a very good driver - Charlie Chan. Thanks to a VT member that recommended him. Fortunately he lives some 5 minutes away from our guesthouse.
Our guesthouse Bou Savy Guesthouse was a really homely place. We felt very comfortable staying there & the service was friendly. Thanks to Mr Horn Bovuth. You can email them at
Charlie was with us ( 4 guys travelling together) for 3 days. He took us to see the ruins of Angkor Wat & the surrounding areas. Even took us to Beng Meala, about an hour drive from SR. He was also our guide - explaining abt the temple ruins. While with him, he suggested the itinerary for us. Got to see Angkor Wat at night. A company was a company function and booked the place. It was a marvellous sight! Took us also to the landmine museum near Angkor & showed us ard SR. Truly a great friend & guide! If you wish to use his services, u can email him at
Thanks to Charlie our first trip to Cambodia was an unforgettable experience! We're even thinking of visiting him in SR in the very near future!!

I plan to go to Cambodia in December, will be staying for about a week in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. I would like to know if it is safe for an Asian female travelling alone in Cambodia? It is recommended to stay at a guesthouse or a hotel? Thanks a lot.


by cachaseiro

cambodia is a safe and suprisingly mellow place, so you should not worry as long as you don't act silly.


by stedeb

SR is especially lovely and I can recomend the Bou Savy Guest House check out their website we enjoyed our stay with them plus they arranged our tmeple transport & guide all via email. Not right in the middle of town but on Route 6. Ask for a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor much better than the ground floor.


by mim95

You shouldn't have any problems, I traveled to both towns on my own too 2 years ago. Not sure if it is still the same, but the hotel staff at Phnom Penh adviced me not carry a bag out at night, just bring enough cash with you.


by GenuinelyCurious

It is reasonably safe. But as always, it pays to keep aware of surroundings and it's best not to wander alone in dodgy areas. I'd especially be concerned about Phnom Penh (as above). There are parts of town that are downright dangerous, but I stayed by the river and motorcycled around with the same guy who acted as my driver at night. Day time is fine.

Siem Reap is very safe and friendly. You can read about a great hotel there at this link:

Hello, we are new to VT so I hope this is the right place to ask. We are going to Cambodia in a few weeks and are after any recommendations for cheap hostels in PP, Battambang, Siem Reap, Kratie or other jungle areas, Kampot and Sihanoukville. Also any suggestions of things to do that are a bit different.
Thanks, Karen & Colin

Welcome to VT. Try to log for hostels/ hotels
They've good bargain. never miss, sunrise and sunset in angkor wat. It is a must see. Travel around town with a tuk-tuk, the experience- priceless! Have fun in Cambodian. If you like to do volunteer work stop by cambodia children fund center to help the needy children.

We stayed in Bou Savy GH in SR it cost $US15 for air con twin with b/fast. On HWY 6 but pretty close to the main street for restaurants etc. We booked our tour guide and temple transport through them via email when we booked. They were very nice friendly people and the rooms are spacious and clean ask for 2nd or 3rd floor as some on ground have only cold water and fans. Check out their website. It is run by a local family we like to support the locals rather than those big hotels. Do the balloon over Angkor $US15 brilliant. I hope you will post some info on your pages when you get back I am especially interested in Battambang & Sihanoukville where we will travel in 08.

You will love Cambodia - it is amazing - we also stayed at Bou Savy Guesthouse - it was fantastic service, beautiful room/outlook and the breakfast area is magical with so much to choose from. You will really enjoy your time at this clean hotel which is down a quiet lane and handy location - great restaurants on the main street.

We booked this accommodation online -
no problems with this booking everything was perfect.

For a genuine and friendly tuk tuk driver in Siem Reap - contact "Song" @
Song was a monk up until a few months ago and has started his own tuk tuk business and will happily take you around town at a reasonable price. When emailing him tell him Carole from Australia recommended him.

If staying for 3 days or more - go to the ticket office on day 1 after 4ish pm and buy your 3 day entrance pass (etc.) and you'll be admitted FOC this day - in time to see the sunset - then you'll have the following three days to explore - you'll need it. It's so grand and magical.

Enjoy Cambodia
