Explore Angkor Wat in Cambodia
I frequently travel to SE Asia for business, and have decided that I would like to explore the area a bit more. I expolred the island of Borneo a few months back, and before I select a date to explore Angkor Wat, I want to see if anyone in the group is interested in going. I'm guessing that I could go for 3-5 days. The only significant expense would be the airfare, as food, lodging, ground transportation and admission charges are pretty darn inexpensive there. I would probably bring a bicycle to get around and can bring an extra. Let me know if you're interested. General Expenses: upscale lodging runs about $25-$35/night, these places usually include a pool, and have AC. Food, figure $10-$15 per day. Temple pass - $20/day Bicycle rental - $2-$6/day if you rent one there, nothing if we bring one. Tuk/Tuk or Taxi - won't need one if we bicycle. Airfare - depends where you are coming from. I plan to fly into Siem Reap, it's pretty cheap from Bangkok or Kuala Lampur on Air Asia - less than $300 r/t. From Seattle it runs between $1100 and $1600 r/t You can also fly into Phnom Phen and take a bus or a boat but you'll need a full day each way. Other items to make sure you address: Mosquito repelent, Dengue Fever is fairly common, avoiding bites is the best prevention, long sleeves, a bug net over your bed, DEET. Malaria is more common further out of town than we are likely to go.

What we're about

Public Group

Do you dream about traveling the in different parts of the world under your own power rather than a tour bus or a car? Meet with people who like adventures around the world with most of the trip under their own power. We do self directed Bicycle/Kayak/Canoe and Hiking tours in various parts of the Pacific NW as well as around the world. It's a great way to meet people and experience foriegn cultures. We try and have at least one local and one foriegn trip each month. Our trips are as varied as a bicyle ride through the Cascades and Coastal Range and Williamette Valey in Oregon, or a Bicycle tour along the path from Pittsburgh to DC, or a kayaking tour through the San Jaun Islands in Washington, or a bicycle tour through France and Germany. You need to RSVP for a planned trip as well as purchase your own transportation to the start and home from the finish.
