Practical Information in Phnom penhEdit This
This can be a concern for travellers who rely primarily upon a travel guide that's published every year or two as, with the best will in the world, the information becomes outdated very quickly. Thankfully both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap are well-served by a couple of locally-produced guides that are updated, for the most part, on a quarterly basis, ie: every three months.
Popular for many years are the Visitors Guides, published by Canby, that provide useful general information for both destinations. They are available free at selected locations in each city.
A recent addition to the scene is Cambodia Pocket Guide, which publishes guides specifically focused on food and drink, namely the Phnom Penh and Siem Reap - Eating & Drinking guides. They are also available free, at around 140 places in Phnom Penh and 100 or so in Siem Reap. They contain articles, very detailed directory listings, maps and advice for those in search of places to eat and drink, and all the content can be viewed online at www.cambodiapocketguide.com
