Vietnam to Cambodia

Was wondering if anyone know the quickest/cheapest/easiest way to get from HCMC to Siem Reap,
I am leaving from PP to BKK after visiting SR so don't really want to have to go through PP twice but is this the only way?
I have read that you can get the 'Mekong Express' from HCMC to PP and then catch another bus from PP to SR..but this sounds a bit time consuming? If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated!

Hi JessRH,

Welcome to Travelfish!

So you're going Saigon - Phnom Penh - Siem Reap - Phnom Penh - Bangkok right?

The cheapest way will be to take the Mekong Express Bus -- remember the bus from SR to PP only takes around 3-4 hours, while the Saigon to PP bus takes all day as you tend to get "delayed" at the border.

Your only other option would be to fly from Saigon to Siem Reap, but that isn't particularly cheap...
