Great pics mate, what lens were you using mostly?

I have a canon 24 -105 f4 lens, just wondering if a 70-200 would be better?

I am thinking of doing a trip to Angkor Wat i June,and wouldnt mind the boat ride, if it wasnt so long.

Cheers

Mix of 17-85mm and 70-300mm, when ever I have my long lens on I always keep my pocket camera handy too so I'm not pissing around changing lenses.

Excellent read.  I liked the house with cloth walls - a dream house built with the materials available  :grin:

I hope the bamboo railway is still there 2 years later in 2012.

 Brett has been gone almost 2 years now; Living the easy life in Oz with his family;

I was in Batt last month,  spent 5 days/nights an that was 3 to many, as had my own car visited all the local sites, couple of nice temples, ( the fine art school is worth a visit and especially if ur there when they give a performance) ,
stayed at the holiday hotel about 5 min walk from Bus stop for $15 which was 10X better than the bus stop.  Problem i have with Batt is the food sucks and overpriced PLUS only one Chinese style grocery store that has anything western and Expensive.  No mini Marts  ;-(

In siem rep we stay at the Angkor Wat GH on the road behind the Caltex station in town, easy walk to Pub street.  $ 15/night

I really enjoyed your pics and it seems we see the same
 
I just drove from SR to Patttaya via Poi pet   6 1/2 hours only. Although going from thai to Cambodia might be rip offs ( on the Cambodian side) traveling the other way is a piece of cake.

AS can't be bothered to place all my pics up u can see them here. Thailand to  Laos to Sr to Preah Vihear with various other smaller temples included to PP

For cameras i have a nikon and LOVE my 18-200 VR lense!!!  It matters not what length lens u use as u either back up or get closer But having a wide range defiantly makes it easy

Hi,

I'm making the trip to Angkor Wat and have my own vehicle. So Angkor Wat GH has a safe place to park you vehicle? Can you hire a guide and have him ride with you?

You may NOT be able to take ur car in. Some borders wont allow it,  Pailin will not, Poi pet may or may not,
Osmach is good,

I took my car in last time via Osmach in July an no questions.  Another friend tried to enter at Pailin and they refused him.
He was able to enter at Poi pet. If u do enter at Poi Pet DO NOT stop at the Cambodia customs, ( about 200 meters after immigration) just keep on driving , cause if u do stop they might say no.
Once ur in Cambodia nobody cares, 

Legally ur supposed to have approval from Cambodia with papers before u arrive but.....
Koh Kong its a hit or miss.

The gh has a full parking lot and 100% safe.  YOU DO NOT need a guide, pick up a map an there are some excellent books available on the street or once ur in the temple area for $5.

You could alos hire a tuk tuk for apx $15 /day who will take ya around.  Whats nice about thta is many of te temples u walk thru so having ur car means u need t walk back but if ur in a tuk tuk he will meet u on the other side.

Good luck
