    Hiya guys,

    IM soon (Feb 12th) flying to Vietnam where im doing a organsied trup through intrepid travel on the reuninification express which takes me from Hanoi to HCMC.

    From there i have approximately 3 weeks until i am meeting a friend in the Phi Phi islands in Thailand. In this 3 weeks i want to see as much as Cambodia as possible, where i plan to stay in PP, Sihanoukville, Siem Reap (angkor wat) and maybe Battambang. I have approx 2 weeks to do all this in Cambodia and im thinking if i rely on overland travel this could eat up my time, so was thinking maybe a flight from Siem Reap to Bangkok which will save that final journey.

    What do you think guys? IM sorry if ive bored you or this makes no sense!!

    You need to allow a full day to travel overland to Bangkok from Siem Reap. If you can afford the time it is well worth the experience and easier and cheaper than going the other way. In the end the two factors and time and money and which ever is more important to you.

    We've got a story on Bangkok to Siem Reap here which should be handy in giving you an idea of how much travel is involved.

    If you take a look in the trip planners for Cambodia you'll get an idea of some of the transport times involved -- should help to make the right decision -- as Di says, it's a toss up between time and money.

    Check out Air Asia--very cheap flights in the entire area. Why take a bumpy bus if a flight is cheap. From Bangkok to Krabi, it's only $12-15 flight plus $20 taxes. I think they fly to Siem Reap, maybe not. They do fly to Phnom Penh for sure. Enjoy Sihanoukville--great beaches, beer, and seafood. Love that place. From Krabi, simple boat ride to Phi Phi--just don't stay in the town of Krabi for a night--my only bad night ever in Thailand. Dirty and loud in the AM. Options near Krabi with nice beaches are Railay and Ao Nang and both offer plenty of local longtail boat ride options to other beaches and sboats to Phi Phi. Railay and nearby caves are a must see--nice beaches. Sa-wat dee khap.
