    Basic but Affordable

    by

    The owner speaks English and offered to fetch us from the SAPACO Bus station for free using their tuktuk shuttle service. (the guesthouse was about 5 minutes away from the station)

    We were only four in the group but the room we were given had 6 double beds so we had a lot of space. There was hot water, TV, A/C, and fan. The room itself was clean enough although I would warn you against using their towels as they looked as if they weren't washed properly -- they were light gray in color and I suspect that they were once white. They have a simple garage - turned - restaurant by the receiving area where the PCs are also located. Internet use is free for all guests.

    We were charged 20 USD per room/ night.

    Please note that they don't accept worn-out or old dollar bills (specially big denominations). The $100 we tried to pay them with wasn't even old or wrinkled. It was just folded and had a crease in the middle but they still requested for another bill.

Is this the same dump as the one that caught the attention of the Australian from Holly wood and he set up a charity to get children out of it? savethe cambodian children, or something similar?
cambodianchildrensfund.org and the name of the australian is Scott Neeson

Hi,

This Facebook group is run by volunteers who have worked for KDFO which is an orphanage for kids who work at the dump. If you send a message to Hannah or one of the others they should be able to give you some info.

"Make a difference: sponsor a Cambodian orphan"

Re: Stung Meanchey Garbage Dump

by roamer61

I am not a member of Facebook. I was asking if any fellow VT members have ever did volunteer work there. And what their experiences were like. I've seen pictures on both Pbase and flickr and was wondering about doing some volunteer work and making a photo-essay.

The people who run the Facebook group are ex-volunteers- they are a group of people who have volunteered at the orphanage near Stung Meanchey for 6 months, teaching english etc. Having been there for 6 months I imagine they'd be able to give you a lot of useful information. I worked in Cambodia last year and lived with a few people who were volunteering there. They would be able to tell you their experiences and contact details for KDFO (the organisation who run the orphanage.) Facebook is easy to join- you could always just leave again. I can't think of another way to contact a group of people who have volunteered there for a decent amount of time- as opposed to people who stay for a couple of days or a week.

Re: Stung Meanchey Garbage Dump

Well, maybe I'll join Facebook solely for this reason. Btw, I am considering this for a few days as part of a generalized side trip to Cambodia from Bangkok, Thailand.

Anne Marie. No response on Facebook. I was asking also asking spefically from any VT members if they have done this.

Travel Tips for Phnom Penh

Visa

by Tina-Perth

We were told by our travel agent not to worry about a visa for Cambodia before we left, and to just get our visa at the airport. It's not a simple process when hoardes of people are all trying to do it at the same time.

To make it easier, you can download an application form here: Visa Application. Ensure that you have spare passport photos. The cost of your visa is US$20 and payable at the airport when you arrive. It is quite chaotic at the counter, but somehow you do end up with your visa and your passport returned. You can see from this photo that they have renamed me Ria and Steve was Mark. I don't know whether they were someone elses or they couldn't be bothered writing our names.

There is also a US$25 Departure Tax to be paid in US$ when you leave, so keep enough aside. There is a US$6 Departure Tax for domestic flights.

Here are two very important...

by l_joo

Here are two very important persons (VIP) in Phnom Penh. They were invited here by their President for some secret missions...lol. Generally, Phnom Penh is beyond your imagination if you come from Siem Reap. This city is almost another Saigon but smaller version, full of vehicles, peoples, rats, litters and pollutions. We came from Siem Reap, our expectation was another small town but wow, it was that big.

another snack you might like or not

by picek

You will see that night food market is great place to buy or just watch special foods and snacks. Here before Royal Palace and next to Sisowath Quay, on that green lawn you can go for your special food. Well, what special? Insects, tarantulas, grilled birds in whole except feather, tiny snakes and frogs, all that and more.
What is common for local it may not be common for you, but it definitely feeds the curiosity of a traveller.
BTW, it looks that sellers are not too happy for tourists to take photos of these foods and they don't appreciate disgusted looks of some people. The food is food!
At least try to buy something from them, something that you can eat and then more likely you'll be rewarded 'with permission' to take pics. Isn't that hard.

Stung Mean Chey Dump Site

by AlbuqRay

The Stung Mean Chey (SMC) dump site used to be outside the city; however, Phnom Penh now has more than one million people and has grown out past the dump site. Ironically, Phnom Penh's newest and largest mall, the Sovanna Shopping Center in the Golden City area just off Street 271, is only 1.3 km away (as the crow flies). There are a couple of videoclips too.

Siem Reap

by keeweechic

No trip to Cambodia is complete without visiting Angkor Wat. This whole area is awesome, no appropriate words can describe the feeling of being amongst the some 300 monuments and temples that were built between the 9th and 12th centuries only to be overtaken by jungle until the end of the 1800's.
