    Hello,
    myself and three other girls are planning a short trip (2 weeks) to cambodia in jan of 2012. Im just wondering about how much do you guys think we'll need per day including basic (not fancy but not gross) guesthouse, food and transport etc. At the moment we are planning on flying into the capital, spending time in SHV and visiting angkor wat.
    Any help appreciated.

    Excluding flight ticket and insurance I'd say $50 per day roughly or $700 pp would be the minimum.

    I assume that in those 2 weeks you'd like to be active and enjoy things and not be too much bothered with budgetting. Why fly all the way to Cambodia otherwise.
    Cambodia can be really cheap and a decent room with aircon can be had for $10 ($5 pp)
    Another $10 pp per day for basic food and other basic neccessities (bottled water and such)

    That comes to $210 for basics
    PP-SHV-PP-SR-PP bustickets are together roughly $50
    Angkor entrance $40 for 3-day pass

    Leaves you with roughly $400 for other activities (renting motorbikes, tuk tuks, massage and so on) and drinks. It's not huge but you'll be fine. In SHV draft beers are $0.75 cents for instance.
