Wondering if folks have opinions on whether it was better to take the bus or the boat from Phenom Penh to Siem Reap? And/or where I should look for more info on what the boat option is like. I think I'll be taking a slow boat from Chau Doc to PP - are those to SR similar?

The boat trip from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap is scenic at the start and the end -- the middle is pretty boring. If the weather is good I'd sit on the roof, with a big fat hat and a litre of sunscreen -- I'd avoid sitting downstairs if possible. If it's raining, catch the bus.
Most tend to do it once, and the bus thereafter. The bus is cheaper and faster.

Agree on the P.P. -S.R. trip, it's a rip off. The boat(s) trip between C.D. and P.P. is much more picturesque and enjoyable, just six other folk on board when i last did it, take some snacks and drink.
