Help!!!!

Posted by alenoles31 on 2/3/2011 at 10:30

Thanks for your help in advance.

Im arriving in Bangkok April 3rd at night and leaving April 24th in the morning. I REALLY want to go to Angkor Wat from April 5th-8th (including travel time) and go back to Thailand and head to Andaman Sea Islands then go to Gulf Islands for the new year and to spend the rest of our time. The airfare roundtrip is $550 US from BKK to Siem Reap. Its insane! Overland from BKK seems like a lot of time will be wasted in getting there and back. My friend doesnt really care to go but she says if we go she doesnt want to waste time traveling overland and will pay the money for the flight.

Therefore, I am really stuck on what to do. We are going to be in the islands from the 9th-23rd and I've been wanting to go to Angkor Wat for years. I dont know when I will be back in the region, but I know we are wasting a lot of precious travel time and money. Can you give me some advice on what to do?

Thanks a lot!!!!!

It's not an ideal solution but looks like you're going to need to be creative....

Bus from BKK to Siem Reap
Do Angkor
Bus to Phnom Penh
Fly from PP to BKK - Airasia has flights for $71 at the moment
Fly straight from BKK to Surat Thani - about $125 return
