What would be the best way to get from cambodia (Phnom Penh) to phuket, and (approx) how long would it take and how much would it cost

thanks for the help

Hi brigal,

Welcome to Travelfish!

There's two options -- fly or overland.

1) Fly
Fly with Air Asia from Phnom Penh to Bangkok, then with any one of the many carriers (eg Nokair) flying from Bangkok to Phuket. You can do the entire trip in a day.

2) Overland
Bus to Siem Reap (4-5 hours)
overland to Bangkok (one day)
bus to Phuket (around 10 hours)

I'd lean towards the former as you should be able to do the whole thing for around US$100, and it will be far less time consuming than going overland.

Thank you somtam2000 i never realized how cheap the plane tickets where, plus with the savings in time i should only lose 1 day due to traveling rather than 2 or 3 whcih makes it even more worth while to fly.
