    Any advice on trying to make the overland trip from Thailand to Siem Reap during the rainy season? We'll be heading that way in late July. I know roads have improved quite a bit over the last few years, but don't know if it is enough to make a rainy season road trip feasible. We can always fly in and out with Bangkok Airways I guess, but the overland trip seems like much more fun.

    Please let me know. Thanks, Mark

    Hi Mark,
    Welcome to Travelfish!
    For very up-to-date info on this route, you should take a look at Tales Of Asia, as it has been a while since we've done the trip, and that site has very good info on the route. I believe it is taking around 4 hours at the moment.
