Si Phan Don or Phom Phem?

Posted by Tuli on 26/5/2008 at 01:35

Hi there, we are travelling to Laos and Cambodia mid july to mid august, and we are not sure whether to go from Vientiane to si phan don and going from there to siem reap or going down direct from vientiane by plane to phom phem and then to siem reap. I know this type of questions are hard to answer, but as we don't have much time, what should I skip? si phan don or phom phem..?
Thanks!

How short is your time?

Unless you're planning on spending more than a night in Si Phan Don, I'd skip it and fly, as otherwise you'll spend more time getting there than hanging out there.

Thanks for your reply.
Well, I would actually have a couple of nights to spend in si phan don before crossing to camboya. Well, I guess I wil have to decide there, once I see how much does it take to travel within laos etc

If you take a look at the suggested itineraries for Laos you'll be able to get an idea of how long it takes to get around.

I'd skip Si Phan Don too. You'd be hard pushed to pull yourself away once you set eyes on it.......
