    Hello all,
    I am travelling to Cambodia in April. Initially i am flying to Bangkok where i will stay one day before flying with Air Asia to Phonm Phen.
    The day i will arrive to Phonm Phen is the 20th of April and i am flying back to Bangkok from Siem Reap on the 4th of May.
    So i am planning to stay two days in Phonm Phen and then i will be heading down south to Koh Rong or Koh Rong Samloem ( Still to decide). From here i will go to spend the last 3 days in Siem Reap to see Angkor. As i am flying back on the 4th, i was thinking to be in Siemp Reap the 1st of May.
    My question is: How do i get to Siem Reap from Sihanoukville and how long it will take? do i need to go back to Phonm Phen?
    Thanks

    You'll be able to get a bus from Sihanoukville to Siem Reap but it will go via Phnom Penh. I guess you'd be looking at around 12 hours for the entire trip depending on connection in PP.

    I got the overnight bus from Siem Reap to Shinoukville, it was around 12 US dollars and was comfortable enough. You share a largeish matress with another person so be prepared to make a friend!

    I went to Crusoe Island from Shinoukville which is highly recommended. Pretty basic, but the guyus that run it are good fun and it's a great place to chill out. Camping for 2 is something like 6 dollars a night including the equipment.

    From Shinoukville it's around a 5 hour journey to PP and IIRC it was 10 dollars. Bus was comfortable enough.

    Thank you for your comments Ahleckz. I think i will go to Koh Rong instead of Crusoe Island. Crusoe island seems to be a great place but i dont have time to do everything.

    Amnicoll- Why would you not recommend the night bus? I have done night buses before in Thailand and thats ok. Are the buses worse than in Thailand? I also did a few bus trips in Laos and even though the buses were crap and very dangerous roads, i consider that part of the travel experience. How do the buses look like in Cambodia then?
