    Hi guys!

    I'm going to be traveling to Cambodia to do some volunteering teaching with the organisation Original Volunteers this summer. Really excited about it! I was wondering if anybody has any advice for me? Either advice about Cambodia, Original Volunteers or general travel advice I'd love to know how best to budget it in particular as I'm not the most well off person. I'll be in the Takeo region of Cambodia apparently. Can't wait, but I'm not a very traveled person so any advice would be heartily appreciated.

    Many thanks!

    Sounds very interesting.

    Where abouts is Takeo? Is it near Siem Reap? You had best prepare for Malaria, as everywhere in Cambodia is suffered from it, apart from the towns of Siem Reap or the capital Phomn Penh.

    You need some injections/boosters a few months before you go, so it's best to start checking which injections you may need.

    Nomad Travel is a good site to check which vaccinations you will need.

    Takeo is to the south, close to Vietnam and I've been told about an hour away from Phnom Pehn via transport?

    Thanks a lot for advice anyways
