Siem Reap to Banlung

Posted by Gegp2000 on 27/7/2010 at 23:13

Hi Everyone,

Pretty new to this website, but already totally in love with it. We're leaving on Sunday for Bangkok then Cambodia, and I have a few questions about how to travel insinde the country:
From Siem Reap to Banlung. Should we take a bus to Kamnpong Cham, change there, and spend a night in Kratie before heading north?
Is it worth to go both to Banlung and Sen Monorom? I would like to trek with the elephants, as well as to trek in the forest of Virachay.
How interesting is the Chong Kneas village?

No need to go back to Kg Cham anymore, go direct to T'bang Menchey and from there to Stung Treng, brand new road all way.

With my own car the trip Banlung to Siem Reap took under 7 hrs last week
