Hey guys,
I want to go from Siem Reap to Bangkok on the 12.04 (if necessary also earlier) because my flight back home leaves on april 14th. What do I have to expect regarding new year in cambodia and thailand? Will buses run normal? Will I get a ticket? I'm abit afraid that a I could be stuck in siem reap and miss my flight^^ I hope uou can help me :)

Buses (and trains in Thailand) should be running normally... If for some reason you had trouble getting a seat on a bus in Siem Reap you could always arrange a shared taxi (I'm not very familiar with travel in Cambodia but I'm guessing you won't have a problem with the buses). Once in Thailand it shouldn't be a problem to hit the bus station or train station in Aranyaprathet for a ride to Bangkok. Alternately Air Asia still has seats available on April 12 for around US $80 for the Siem Reap > Bangkok flight.

Buses in Cambodia can be very booked up so make sure you book in advance

What do you mean by in advance? Do you think 5 days before should be enough?
Thank you for the replies!
