by piglet44

hey everyone I just discovered my mobile will not work in Cambodia.Is it possible to buy a cheapie phone unlocked and put a sim in it?
Someone told me that only residents can buy sim cards is it true?

Re: mobile phones in Cambodia?

by Travel_kat

You can buy phones and sim cards everywhere now. I bought a sim card last February in one of the internet cafés on Sisowath Quay (riverfront) in Phnom Penh and used this card in my mobile from home. This was much cheaper then using the sim card from home (Belgium).

Travel Tips for Phnom Penh

the rivers

by aalayaa

phnom penh, the capital of cambodia is passed by 3 rivers: mekong, tonle sap, and bassac.
the in afternoon, you'll see along the river of tonle sap many people spend their time sitting, playing or buying street food.
on the river, some boats pass by.
nice scenery :)

Enjoy the Tonle Sap River, the heart of Phnom Penh

by Etoile2B

Phnom Penh lies along the Tonle Sap River and the Riverfront area is definitely popular among tourists and locals alike. A walk along the river is a great way to relax and enjoy the view, as well as observe locals living their daily lives. Many of the shops, hotels, restaurants and bars along the Tonle Sap can be more expensive than elsewhere in the city, but you can find an affordable place to stay if you’re looking for a bargain. Most of the budget travelers stay along the lake, but if you look the riverfront can be reasonable too. A walk along the Tonle Sap is a treat. Street vendors hawk their wares, families picnic along the river and we even saw a man out “walking” his pet elephant! Even if you’re not staying along the Tonle Sap it’s worth checking this area out for an evening stroll or a drink at one of the many bars along the way.

Silk Weaving

by Tina-Perth

The Cambodian silk is still woven by hand and it is amazing to watch.

At the exit of the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda you can see it being weaved, very slowly, one thread at a time. The thread is on shuttles which are pre-dyed and tossed through the cross-threads in their special order to create the patterns. The weaver works with foot controls to manoever the cross-threads into position. A very slow and tedious operation, but ingenious and fabulous to see.

It's worth a look to see what goes into weaving such a fine fabric.

Packing List

by l_joo

Our Cambodian style of packing, Oh Yeah. This picture is taken from the border crossing between Bavet of Cambodia and Mocbai of Vietnam. As usual you need to fill up some troublesome forms and open your luggage for inspection but that's fun I think, just enjoy.
One more thing I noticed everytime while crossing the border, most tourists will show you a very cute looking face, this way you won't get into trouble I think, hahaha just joking.

Back streets after the rain

by extrajoce

Apart from the main avenues, the streets in Phnom Penh are seldom paved. They are full of potholes which fill up after the rain, giving the city a very special and old-fashioned atmosphere. They are more quiet, sombre, and even creepy at times than the noisy and crowded boulevards.
