My recent stay at Colonial Mansions was to say the least extremely disappointing. I have in the past been a long stay guest and for the most part very happy. Having stayed there I do know the layout of the property and surrounding environment. There is major construction in the immediate vicinity; hence I requested a room away from the construction area!
This was confirmed in writing along with the rate.
Upon my arrival there was no record of my booking, the rate or my request!
After a lengthy wait at reception I was escorted to quite possibly the noisiest room in the property. Being the middle of the day I was not overly concerned, but what a big mistake this was!
To my surprise the adjacent construction was a 24-hour operation and an unbelievably noisy one at that. Apart from the relentless noise the windows did not close properly and allowed the noise to penetrate very easily.
This was possibly the worst nights sleep (or lack of it) I have ever had.
I have brought this to the managements attention and have ignored me completely! Their silence is as deafening as the nearby construction noise and is completely unacceptable.
This construction will be ongoing for several years, in my opinion this property should be closed while the construction is ongoing, it really is unbearable. I will never stay there again.

... effort at shopping and the girls taught us that maybe. just maybe it is a sport. Back to the hotel again for a casual game of Marco Polo led by Charlotte Wyllie and Tyson DeGroot and some fantastic hand standing comps.
So here we sit with 4 hours sleep in 36 hours and still another full night ahead. Keep checking our updates and photos and please comment along as we go.
... me. I politely declined and said I would do it myself and he didn't push the issue, which I was pleasantly surprised about. Once we got to the border I was ushered to the visa on arrival booth, filled out the form and paid my $20, as expected, all was going to plan. I made my way through immigration, got my passport stamped and came out the other end. The bus was nowhere to be seen. Six months ago, I would ...
... the two of us, we had the privilege of buying and presenting each child with a brand new uniform on our last day. I will never forget it. They were so thankful and so happy, it was impossible not to be touched to the point of tears. As we got into the tuk tuk to leave, they surrounded us, showered us with homemade bracelets and drawings, and sang their goodbyes. Earlier that week, I had taught them part of The Lumineers 'Ho Hey'. So before we pulled away, we all sang ...

For me, Saigon did not have the same charming ambience as Phnom Penh. However, there was an aspect of Saigon life that Lory and I found fascinating. We went for a jog along the Saigon River on a Sunday morning at about 6:00 am, and the streets were alive with Vietnamese at play! On many streets boys and young men were enjoying impromptu soccer games; in parks along the river walk, Badminton nets were everywhere, and all the courts were full; elsewhere people of all ...
The trip from Koh Chang to Phnom Penh was pretty normal, except for the border crossing itself. As I had read before, entering Cambodia overland is far more a hassle then arriving by air. Arriving at the border you are instantly approached by nasty touts who will prepare the visa paperwork for you. The visa itself costs around 10$ more than arriving by air, simply because of „corruption fee“ delegated from officials ...
