Review Bus from Cambodia to Laos: How to Travel from Siem Reap to Pakse With Asia Van Transfer

I always love road trips!

And ever since I started planning my Indochina trip, I knew that I wanted to use either bus or train to get me from one place to another.

That, until I googled about the bus from Siem Reap to Vientiane that I found out the number of border services from Cambodia to Laos isn’t as many options like those from Cambodia to Vietnam.

After researching the options that I could take from Siem Reap to somewhere in Laos, I decided to make a stopover in Pakse. Honestly, when I decided to do that, it was actually my first time hearing about Pakse, so I barely knew anything about where to go or what to visit there.

However, I figured stopping by Pakse is an excellent way to go if I want to go across the border from Cambodia to Laos by land. I could stay for a night or two, and then continue my trip to Vientiane later. So I did.

Child Safety on Vacation – Around the Pool

When everything goes to plan, you can’t beat a little bit of family vacation time.

The build-up, the excitement, the new things to see and do … and it’s often the strangest of things that get talked about for years to come, like Dad coming out of the sea with a crab pincered to his shorts. 

Of course, things can – and do – go wrong.

One Day in Siem Reap: Angkor Wat and Beyond!

Hi everyone!

I know it’s been a while since the last time I wrote my previous piece on my Indochina tour. I’ve already got “One Day in Siem Reap” for my next post since I published my Oudong article last month, but then life happened.

By life, I meant work stuff as well as some distractions to binge-watch Brooklyn 99. I never watched the series before, but I’ve finished their season 6 now, and I recently started Modern Family. I was already planning to just spend this weekend continuing the series since I’ve got a lot to catch up. Still, then I’m trying to stay away from my procrastinating ass.

Today, I’m going to write about the next place that I visited on my last trip to Indochina: Siem Reap, Cambodia.

I only spent one day traveling to explore Angkor Wat and some other places in Siem Reap. The next day, I spent most of my time strolling around Pub Street and its surrounding, so this time I’m going to focus on what I did around the city for a day. Here we go!

The Alternative to Calgary to Banff Bus

The Alternative to Calgary to Banff Bus

Traveling by bus has its positive sides. If you travel from Calgary to Banff on holiday with friends (especially when you are young), a bus ride can be a kind of adventure.

The most significant advantages of this type of transport are its accessibility and the fact that you can be careless because you don’t drive.

Buses for traveling to distant destinations are comfortable, spacious, and have a range of performances that add to their comfort.

Still, in some cases, traveling by bus to Banff is not the best solution. For example, if you are going to a business meeting, or you want to travel alone, a bus ride can be exhausting or boring.

If You’re Going to Do Barcelona, Do It Right!

Barcelona is the quintessential city break destination – perhaps the most popular in Europe. And it’s not hard to see why. Spain’s second-largest urban area is home to fabulous restaurants, stunning views of the Med, and countless cultural monuments. 

Doing Barcelona right, though, is a big challenge. The city – like so many in southern Europe – is complicated. If you’ve never been before, the history, culture, and politics can leave your head spinning. 

This guide covers some of the essential things that you need to know about the city. Being wise to them can help you have a more enjoyable visit.
