Phnom Penh 6D5N, should I venture into Siem Reap?
3rd June, 2010
Out of excitement from Jetstar's promotion, I managed to grab a ticket to PP for US$100! Unfortunately, what I missed out was some good planning before hand.
6D5N seems a bit too much for Phnom Penh. As usual, my itinerary would be the norms-must see.
Day 1: Touch down at night, nothing much can be done
Day 2: Tuol Sleng Genocide, Killing Fields, Russian Market, Royal Palace, etc
Day 3: Khmer cooking class, Mekong River cruise
From here, I have 2 choices, should I
a) Stay in Phnom Penh. Go for a golf game on day 4 and maybe head to some orphanage or NGOs on day 5
b) Go over to Siem Reap, visit some Angkors over day 4 & 5.
Return to PP on day 6, my flight back home is at night.
Is this gonna be worth the US$120 taxi fare from PP to SR (2 ways) + US$30 of (Tuk tuk tour guide around AKW) + US$40 on the AKW passes? (Yeah I know a golf game for 2 would probably come up to the same cost, except I won't need to spend the time travelling)
I've always wanted to visit the Ang Kor Wat, just thinking if I should do it this trip, or maybe in the next couple of years...
Suggestions people? Maybe are there more things I could do in Phnom Penh?
