Bangkok - Siem Reap
19th December, 2006
Can anybody tell me the easiest way to get to Siem Reap straight out of Bangkok? I know there's a flight, but the price is very high. Is there an express bus for example?

How to get from Bangkok to Siem Reap.
Any kind of direct bus from Bangkok to Siem Reap is a very very bad idea.

Check the Tales of Asia webiste for detailed insturctions/costs on how to do this route overland. Avoid the buses coming from Khao San Road.

taking the bus
on kao san road will cost you around three hundred bahts, or cheaper.
then if you have the visa, already to cambodia, and you don t change money, no problem

the road is very bad from poiupet to siem reap. but still it is a good timer when you have no problem with the visa and the scam to change money.

We just did this trip and I highly recommend you take the govt bus to the border, followed by hiring a taxi to get from the border to SR. The KSR buses should be avoided at all costs... you will get ripped off, it will take 2-3 times longer and you will feel like killing yourself halfway to SR from the border... the road was bad enough in a taxi, in a bus it would be a nightmare.... usually you can find other travellers to split the costs... it should cost $45USD for the taxi.

If you are on your own, get to the bus stop at the border and pick up some other punters to share a taxi. We did this trip three days ago and were able to get a taxi for $35USD and so between three of us, worked out the same price as some of the buses. Air-conditioned and makes a nightmare trip a little more tolerable....!
