You cn only do that flight with Siem Reap Airways (ie., Bangkok Airways). You can book either through their website. Otherwise any travel agent in Phnom Penh will be able to help you out.

I agree with the last poster; I paid US$9 for the Mekong Express 'Limousine bus'. It was a modern comfortable air-con coach full of tourists and rich Khmers. They make all announcements in English as well as Khmer and even brought around food and water.

Not worth flying really, I used to pay $55 for the flight but now only $6 for the coach.

Hi I am a single traveller going to be in cambodia from the 14th to 19th of november. I want to see both phnom penh and siam reap/angkor wat. Presently I am flying in from Bangkok to p penh spending two days there and then catching an internal flight from p penh to siam reap, then flying back to p penh and then flying on again to bangkok b4 I go home. I have read some of the posts and they suggest using the bus from p penh to siem reap as it is cheaper. is this true. Additionally is the bus safe and is it worthhile as I have heard it is good to spend three days in ankor watt and if I go by bus a good chunk of my time will be spent travelling. Further to my query are the internal flights in Cambodia very safe. Sorry for sounding wimpy but I have never been to Cambodia and don't know what the travel conditions r like

The bus was easy to arrange, cheap, and much less than 6 hours--with flights these days--you'd be spending a solid 4-5 hrs from start to finish. Bus is very safe. As far as time at Angkor Wat--I bought a one-day ticket and it was perfect for me--others like more time. I purchased it a 5pm the previous day, so I had almost 1.5 days for price of 1---it was a great experience, but quite frankly, I'd be bored if I spent 3 days there---and it is hot there with little shade----a good compromise is bus it and buy 2 day ticket at 5pm the day before day 1, so get essentially 2.5 days. Can take boat also--maybe on way back to change things up and experience something different. --Good Luck--Jim from Lake Tahoe, California
