hello Bruce & welcome to TA

There is so much to see as a newbie on TA that it can all be a bit overwhelming. Some things you should remember – members here are not travel agents – we are a community of fellow travellers who assist with information where possible. Some are locals, others are members who have visited the places you are interested in. Many questions are asked & answered over and over and it gets a bit much so we tend to re-direct new members to where they can find their own information rather than simply answer the question for the millionth time. I know this may sound harsh but it’s far better in the long run if we help you make the most of this amazing website.

the best place for you to start is the top questions - upper right of this screen – and in the same place for each city forum –pick out the ones that seem relevant. Just be aware that these don't show up if you are using the mobile phone app version of TA - you need to be on a laptop or pc.

then have a look in the 'things to do' link in the green bar at the top - make a list of things there which interest you - handy when deciding which cities you want to try and fit in and how much time you might need in each..

then for further info on any of these things - the search box (directly above your post on this page and at the top of the list of topics on each forum front page) will be your new best friend - use this function like a google search - key words & phrases - you'll get to all previous posts on that topic .. this will be useful to find out all about SIM cards. and visa requirements for Indian passport holders

while you're using the search box - look for trip reports (aka JBRs - just back reports) - I find these the best source of info when I start to plan a trip to a new destination.

for accommodation - check out the big online sites like agoda, or booking.com - make a short list and then check the review via the 'hotels' tab in the green bar at the top. Using these big sites you can filter for price and the hotel & room facilities you want.

Q5 ... money ... No, Indian Rupees are not accepted - the USD is the currency used by tourists in Cambodia ..please see this excellent article written by one of our regulars to see how the USD and the Cambodian riel work in tandem …freewebs.com/tuktukangkorwat/…20Cambodia.pdf

Q6 .. you have posted as if you want to go to Phnom Penh yet you ask about Angkor Wat which is near Siem Reap, about 315km away - please confirm if you plan to stay in PP or if you are landing there and wish to travel to Seim Reap to see Angkor Wat and the other temples

if you have more questions, work up a draft itinerary (or at least a list of things you want to see), post it here for comment - it's much easier for the regulars to help you if they have something to work from. It's a good idea too to give an indication of your budget, interests, number of travellers and style of travel

two sites you should also check out are www.travelfish.org - links to each country are in blue in the top bar

and www.canbypublications.com .. good info on Cambodia and in particular the Temples of Angkor

hope this gets you started

cheers

helen
