    Hi Tony,

    Take a look at our one week Cambodia trip planner. The itinerary is simple (Phnom Penh and Angkor) but we list a couple of side trips that you could fit in as well.

    I have the exact same plans for next fall, I thought also of flying to Phnom Penh and back home from Bangkok. First I thought of hanging around Phnom Penh area, then ofcourse the obligatory Siem Riep & Angkor. After that, to Thailand and perhaps a bit travelling around the eastern parts plus relaxing in Samet.

    So the question really is, what is the best way from Siem Riep (or perhaps from Battamabang) to eastern Thailand..? Wonder if it is a lot faster to just fly back to Bangkok and start over for the Thailand part.. It feels a bit boring, though. And expensive.

    Hi Ankka,

    There have been several recent threads with folks asking a similar question of how to get from Siem Reap to eastern Thailand. Flying to Bangkok and then busing it is certainly an option, depending upon your budget and/or sense of adventure. The less expensive and certainly more adventurous way is the overland route from Siem Reap back to Aranyaprathet in Thailand. Check out the Tales of Asia website for detailed information on that trip. Once in Aranyaprathet, you can either head back to Bankok by bus or train, or just take a bus directly down to the east coast of Thailand, putting you near great destinations like Ko Chang or Ko Samet. How much time do you have for this trip?

    I'm really not sure yet how long vacation can I get, hopefully three weeks, from which around one week in Cambodia, one week in Samet, and the rest in somewhere between..

    My budget is not extremely tight, put not unlimited either.
