    I am currently in Cambodia and want to go to Burma. Are there any flights or direct buses? If not does anyone have any advice on how to get to rangoon? Thanks

    Your best bet would be to fly from Bangkok.

    Yup, as above, fly from Bangkok. Air Asia or Bangkok Airways.

    Remember to get a visa in advance!!

    I would use skyscanner, whenever I am traveling, even short hops, I usually check at least.

    As anotherlostsoul says there is a flight from Siam Reap. As far as i know you can get visa on arival on this flight. This is the best way if you dont already have a visa. If not Bangkok - Yangon air asia is always cheapest. You can get the visa in Bangkok takes about 3 days Unless you pay more to get same day visa.

    As this question was asked over 18 months ago I'm guessing the OP isn't still trying to figure out a way to get from Cambodia to Burma. However, the last post reminded me of a blog I read here on TF a short while ago which clears things up ........
