Phnom Penh has opened the new Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra to host up-market guests. Khiri Travel Cambodia likes the new hotel for its riverside location among landscaped gardens in the old quarter of the city. This very attractive well located 12-storey colonial style hotel is close to key attractions, embassies and the central business district. The hotel is one kilometre from the national museum.

Along with 201 luxurious rooms and suites with Mekong or Bassac river views, the Sofitel offers an array of chic restaurants and bars, an upscale spa, two swimming pools, a sports club and some of the finest conferencing facilities in Cambodia.

We also like the wellness facilities: fitness centre, Hammam (Turkish) steam bath massage, sauna and outdoor pool.

Hotel manager Mr Didier Lamoot is there to take care of all special needs. Khiri Travel Cambodia is now offering its travel partners special rates at the new Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra.

New Tented Camps in Laos with Shangri Lao

Dr Paul Neis, a well known French Indochina explorer who later became the French consul in Canton, led an expedition to the Laotian highlands in 1883. Dr Neis left Luang Prabang on 11 October in that year in two light boats going up the Nam Khan river.

He travelled up the Huay Sae (“Nam Sae”) and set up camp along the Huay Sae, a mountain stream ending in the Nam Khan River. Visitors today can now travel back in time and relive those exciting days when most of Indochina was unexplored territory for outsiders. The new journey has been made possible by German entrepreneur Markus Peschke. Markus is a long time Lao resident and the founder of Tiger Trail, the Indochina Spirit restaurant and, more recently, the Elephant Village. His new project is called Shangri Lao (www.shangri-lao.com). Shangri Lao will consist of two tented camps, one nearby the current Elephant Village, where Dr. Neis and his entourage set up camp in 1883 along the Tad Sae River and one at the Tad Huay Khot, close to Xieng Ngeung village.
