Bangkok to Siem Reap
7th December, 2011
hey after some advice regarding the above journey.
Whats the best way to travel, preferably over land and has anyone done it recently?
Read a entry on here earlier but it was dated 2006, so just wondering if anyone has any more recent information?

I went the other way around a couple of weeks ago.
I crossed at the Poipet border, which is where most buses go through these days. You can buy Cambodian tourist visas at the border for $25 I think.
The whole thing would be pretty easy - I staggered the trip over a couple of days, but I think cumulatively it would be like 6 hours, 7 tops.
Also, I went by minivan - think the cost from each city to the border or vice versa is about $6 US.

Bangkok to Siem Reap is a bit more challenging than the other way around.
Flights are quite expensive for the distance.
For more info on how to go overland see this page:
The 'resource' section in the bottom right has a link to a very recent report of someone doing this trip.
Let us know how it went?

I have never done the trip in that direction but it is fairly painless on a minibus. I assume you can get minibus tickets from Khao san or any other tourist spot. The only thing worth mentioning is that I have had to change bus every time at the border and this wait can be anywhere between 10 minutes and 3 hours. Not that waiting a few hours is a massive hassle, just that it is impossible to get info from anyone. The bus will always be arriving "in 5 minutes".
