Hey everyone! This is my second trip to Thailand and Cambodia, first was 8 years ago, this one is for my honeymoon! Me and my husband are arriving in Bangkok early on the 3rd August, and on the 4th want to go to Cambodia. We were thinking of possibly leaving on a bus later in the eve to save money, and just staying on the border in Aranyaprathet, but if there was anyone who was wanting to share a taxi with us to save costs that would be great as to possibly drive all the way to Siem Reap !
Also, IF staying in Aranyaprathet, we plan to hit the border as soon as it opens, and are looking for another couple to share a taxi to Siem Reap with. This would be on August 5th. Anyone have experience with staying in Aranyaprathet? Last time I went, I took a taxi and headed straight to the border. Thanks all!

Hi- have you considered the train from Bangkok to Aranyaprathet ? Leaves Bangkok early am, you cross the border and get a cab in poipet. It's a nice train ride, though, better than the bus.
You can take a shared van from poipet to Siem Reap for about $10.
We found Aranyaprathet and Poipet to not be places to stay or spend any time in, I wouldn't want to spend the night, just do the crossing and get out.
