Bangkok to Siem Reap

Posted by 4tindoors on 30/8/2009 at 10:06

What is the best route from Bangkok to Siem Reap ? Bangkok airlines is $300 and I refuse to go this route. I have read https://www.travelfish.org/feature/71

Has anyone traveled to Siem Reap post 2009?? Please indicate the route chosen and the total cost/travel time.

The bus trip from Bangkok to Siem Reap seems difficult. Would it be better to fly to Phnom Pehn with Air Asia ($40) then travel to Siem Reap by bus (6 hours)? Even if it would be just to avoid the scams??

Please advise.

There was recently a discussion here on Travelfish about different fly options. Go read here at this link .

It appears that an AirAsia BKK to PP, and Cambodia Angkor Air PP to SR may be a possible option. Another is to spend a night (or so) in Kuala Lumpur).

Cheers

Maybe not all over...

I looked at 5 November to 'test':

BKK > REP (siem reap) Bangkok Air = US$207.

BKK > PNH (pp) Air Asia US$79
PNH > REP Bangkok Air US$79

So, direct = US$207, via PP = US$158.

This better on the budget?

Cheers
