Home sweet home

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Punctuality.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Having traveled thru a lot of Cambodia with my car i don't think anything comes close to what ur looking for, (the falls above Steung Treng are nice)

Thailand, Myanmar do have some great places which come close to what ur looking for

two for ya
Sunrise from Phu Fi Cha is simply breathtaking
Traveling thru the 3 gorge's of the Irrawaddy River in Myanmar from Bhamo
In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST
