Flights to Bali: best option coming out of Cambodia?

Posted by smillertime78 on 12/2/2011 at 12:04

Hello! I plan to meet a friend in Bali around March 14 and will be traveling from Cambodia. Does anyone have any experience as to finding the best/cheapest flight from Phnom Phen to Bali? I assume I would need to transfer in Singapore, but is there any airline that will book all the way, or will it be easier/cheaper to book separate flights?

Looking into it, but wasn't sure if anyone had any ideas :)

I don't know specifics but my bet would be on Bangkok and not Singapore for ease and low cost. Under your post there's an add of Air asia for Bali - Phuket for $41.

Look at Air Asia into both Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur. From there those places, you can fly direct to Bali (Denpasar). See which option offers the best deal.

I'd say the cheapest will be with AirAsia via KL. The main problem with the flight from Phuket to Bali is you have to be at the airport at 4:30 am (says he who is catching said flight on Monday ;-)

Hi Sarah, AirAsia! You can do a mix and match to make it a more fruitful trip.
Some options:
1) Bus first to Bangkok. Then take the BKK-DPS AirAsia flight.
2) Cambodia to BKK flight. Then BKK-DPS flight. One single flight.
3) Cambodia to KUL flight (there are two, Phnom Penh and Siem Reap to KUL). Then KUL-DPS flight(s) - there are 5 flghts to Bali out of KUL!
To get the best fares, booking in advance is essential. The cost of flight is still much less than regular full service airlines (on average 30-50% off) and best of all is you can book single-way tickets without incurring penalties that full service airlines almost certainly will force upon you - such as buying a return ticket or validity is 7 or 14 days.
