    Hello everyone!

    This'll be my first time in Cambodia, second time in SE Asia. I have a little itinerary I'm hoping to get some suggestions on. It's shorter than I'd like it to be; I did something stupid and divided my month off from work between Cambodia and Indonesia. So, I have a morning flight to catch out of Bangkok on the 10th.

    July 28 - 30 :Phnom Penh (I wanted to stay longer, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out that some old friends are interning in PP and are planning a trip to SR that following weekend)

    July 31 - 6: Siem Reap. I really, really like ruins.

    July 7 - 9 Battambang

    I've heard that crossing from Battambang is a little less painful than SR, and I figure it would be a nice change of pace. I'd like to see some Cambodian countryside. Or maybe it's better just to stay in Siem Reap?

    Another thought I had was going back to PP and flying into Bangkok. If the flight is $70 or so, does it really cost much more than getting into BKK by land?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,
    I've crossed the border near SR (Poipet) and it was easy; no problems at all.
    However, travelling from SR to Bangkok takes around 10 hours regardless of what the ticket sellers say! The cost, as I remember was around the 15 $ mark. Flying is much more expensive and as well as the ticket costs, there is (at least last year) a whopping US$30 departure tax
    You'll need a night in BKK traveling overland, which you might not need if flying, so time vs money!
