Route advice from sihanoukville to siem reap?

Posted by ander112 on 6/3/2015 at 10:33

Hi, will be traveling in July and we were wondering what was the best way to get from sihanoukville to siem reap. We'll be coming from southern Vietnam and intend to spend most of our time on koh Rong and a few days in Cambodia.

After travelling the length of Vietnam, we too will be looking for some quiet beachbum time on an island, possibly Koh Rong as well....then travelling to Battambang and onto SR by boat. So I will be interested in the replies as well...especially if you responders travelled our route.

(Hope you dont mind me piggybacking your thread Anders)

there is a very limited choice of routes for both of you and the simple answer is bus via Phnom Phen. However neither of you state if you are looking to do the journey as quickly as possible or stopping off on the way and seeing more of cambodia

We're not in a rush but will probably get to Sihanoukville from PP so seems silly to back track and whats between Sih and Battam/SR anyway?
But if it avoids the need to back track to PP then we could just go direct to KR from HCMC then up to PP and onto Battam from there?

We are looking to go rather quickly through Cambodia. We just want to see Siem Reap (Ankor) and Koh Rong. We might consider flights if they're cheap and safe enough :)

These are just the two spots in Cambodia that have captured our interests, but if there are other hidden gems, I'd love to hear!

Ander112 There are so many places but where to start no idea about what floats your boat

Mikai: Oudongk, Kampong Chhang, Pursat all worth a visit for starters
