GPS has become popular in the USA.  It seems that people are forgetting what a Map actually does.  In the past we have traveled to

many sites via a map and asked where the good stuff was. Once we found it, we marked it with what would be considered less

sophisticated GPS devices.   Had we tried to track it going in we found we were on a ZIG ZAG pattern to our destination. 

The route out was always more direct. Many sites featured here have pics scattered through out this website.

Google has also made major improvements over the years.   If you go to Google and click maps and enter Cambodia  you will have a

map of the country.  You can click a pictures option and see various places through out the country that travellers have posted.

Here is a Link  to the places (with pictures) to more obscure places we have visited   

Our original travels and GPS usage  had us using the decimal system on the GPS. 

You can adjust your GPS settings from Decimal to Degrees and Minutes.  

You can also search Google for a converter. Here is one I used for converting our decimal system so I could

place our photos on Google maps


Cambodia Maps  

Cambodia Maps: GPS coordinates accurately displayed on fully featured maps



The following are coordinates we have taken over the years. 


Red-  Ancient Temple

Brown- ancient bridge

Dark blue-waterfall

TRN or turn  turnout marks turn to some locations

Lavender- islands beaches

Turquoise-Ferry or boat crossings

Green- point of interest, tourist site but not old


Footnotes I change this name/waypoint from ABFKKKR to pstbakan  

* pstbakan                    N13.40931 E104.75034           80 m                                         Prasat Bakan/Preah Khan

  ABFKKKR                N13.40931 E104.75034           80 m                                         Symbol & Name          


Kuav (town) in brown ancient bridge about 7 K west of town.

Other points are towns and just marks on a road or route. 

If it just says town, the town is properly marked as way point. Other wise town name included

Other highlights include dumpit where I crashed and busted my nose, brcrsh where barry crashed and busted his ribs and pelvis

 Prasat Boran (tower ancient) commonly share the same names (Angkor/ Wat Prasat for example) at various sites through out the country.  Trapeang originally was a pool for elephants to stop along a journey. Spean is the word for Bridge.
