    Hello all,
    First of all, I would like to thank all of travellers who took time to report their experience and recommendations on this website. I found a lot of information on it and would strongly recommand it.

    I have 2 ways in Cambodia and I plan to spend :
    Pnom Penh: 2-3 days
    Sihanoukville: 4 days including the visit of Bokor National Park and Koh S'Dach beach.
    Siem Reap: 4 days with visit of all the temples and if I have time left, visit Battambang.

    Does it seems reasonnable or to short on time ?
    Does anyone have recommandation for this place ? I'm looking for something basic and if possible, away from touristy tracks.

    Thank you for your help

    Hi Vuh,

    You can easily do this itenary in 2 weeks. Just remember that wet season starts soon so that might cause some delays in traveling from one town to another.

    Hello Ernie,

    Thanks for your answer.
    Do you have recommandations for Bokor National Park and Koh S'Dach beach?
    I decided to go there because it sounds not too touristy. I would like to experience something out of tourist track.

    I would appreciate recommandation from any traveller who was there.
    Thanks a lot

    Hi Vuh,

    Ko S'datch is very very non-touristy. The beach is pretty and all, but it's a pretty isolated destination. If you're just after a little beach time, Sihanoukville may be a better option -- especially if you're travelling alone.

    Bokor is excellent - bring some warm clothing as it gets cold at night.

    Otherwise your plan looks good!
