Travel Information

Phnom Penh International Airport [1] (IATA: PNH) - airport is around 7km outside Phnom Penh city centre, costs for an tuktuk are around 7US$, for an cab 9US$

All visitors, except citizens of Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam need a visa to enter Cambodia. Visas can be obtained at Cambodian embassies or consulates. Visas are also available "on arrival" at both international airports, all six international border crossings with Thailand, some international border crossings with Vietnam, and at the main border crossing with Laos. You will need an visa type T, which will cost 30$ (starting 1st October) Detailed visa information More information about Phnom Penh

Local Transportation Information

There is no public transport in Phnom Penh, this is mostly done by Taxis,Motorbike-taxis and Tuktuk

Taxis forget about them,through the chaotic traffic situation they are slower then a Tuktuk and also more expensive. There are some metered taxis available but still some un-metered are running, fares must be agreed in advance.

Motorbike-taxis, (motodops or simply motos) should take you anywhere cheaply. A trip from Sisowath Quay to Central Market costs about 2,000 riel (USD0.50). Fares are higher at night and with more than one passenger. Often little English is spoken. No helmets are provided.

some rules for tuk tuk

  • Agree a fare in advance. Be clear whether it is for one way or return and in total or per person.
  • Drivers will try to avoid losing face by not admitting ignorance. Therefore, "Do you know where this address is?" will always be answered by "yes". Put it to the test and show a driver a recipe, while claiming it's an address. Be patient and expect the driver to pull over mid-trip to ask passers-by for directions even to the most obvious of destinations.
  • Don't leave possessions exposed to snatchers. Women are often targeted.
  • The tuk-tuk drivers outside the Foreign Correspondent's Club are notoriously pushy and aggressive. Avoid them: walk half a block and hire someone else. If you don't want a lift saying "no thanks" generally works. Better still, try it in Khmer: "otday awkunh".
  • Have small Dollar bills, bigger notes they cant often exchange

Event Owners and Co-organizers

Important skills (for participants)

  • We are welcome people who involved to (writers or co-writers) budget planning process in APAC in the last two years. Ref: Ambassadors/APAC/Budget#References
  • But we encourage people who are new but really active in their home countries to come to share and learn more experience then they can implement scheduled events/activities in their country

We have a nice badge for the FAD, we will award it only to the registered attendees!
