Insta-Q&A: A Nip, a Tuck and a Tuk Tuk in Bangkok
Welcome to the inaugural edition of Insta-Q&A, where you can both pose questions to the Travel section, and also help out fellow travelers with your own answers to their queries. Our first question is one we didn't get a chance to answer during this week's chat (it's every Monday at 2, by the way).
If you have some advice for the questioner, feel free to post a comment. If you have a question yourself, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm going to Bangkok in April for a little nip and tuck, and I'm interested in visiting Angkor Wat in Cambodia while I'm there. How can I get there without flying?
A devotee of historic preservation, aren't we? The great palaces and temples of Angkor are reachable via the Cambodian town of Siem Reap, which lies a bit more than 250 miles from Bangkok. The journey over land is a complicated one, however. You can take a bus or train to the Thai town of Aranyaprathet and then a, um, tuk tuk (motorized rickshaw) to the border town of Poipet. There you'll need to get a Cambodian visa and a lift (yes, another one) by taxi to Siem, a trip that takes a few hours. Try to find other travelers with whom you can share cab expenses.
Has anyone else done this trip and have some ideas?
