I would like to fly from siem reap to bali (denpasar), the first week in December, but I don't see any reasonable flights. It doesn't look like any of the regional airlines I have been suggested fly from one to the other (including tiger air, lion air, garuda, jetstar). I would like up to one stopovers as I have limited time. Any other suggestions for airlines to check?

try booking two flights separately via Singapore or KL, definitely no direct flights. JetStar and AirAsia will fly from SR, and then numerous other airlines on to Bali.

Most likely the cheapest will be Air Asia from Siem reap to Kuala Lumpur and then AirAsia again to Bali. Also look at Jetstar for both legs via Singapore. There are no direct flights.

Thank you. I sort of pieced that info together as I continued my search as well. But doesn't that mean I also have to budget the time to pick up any luggage I checked in the connecting airport and then check in to a new flight? I knew I couldn't fly non-stop from SR to DPS, but I was hoping I could buy a connecting flight. It doesn't look like this is the case though.

If you just have carryon bags there is an internal transit checkin at KL so you don't need to clear customs to get bags etc. If you check bags on a low cost carrier like AirAsia you'll need to clear customs to get your bags and then recheckin (and clear customs again) as, as far as I know, they won't book through luggage.
If you don't want to do that, another option is to fly a full service carrier like MAS who fly to both SR and Bali (via KL) and they'll let you book your bags all the way through. I'd expect them to be significantly more expensive though.
