hello

by chrizel

we are planning to visit siem reap next year may2010 i want to ask if our arrival time in phnom penh is 4pm how we could travel to siem reap?

Re: hello

I caught the bus from Phnom Penh after spending the night there. The hotel arranged by bus ticket but there are lots of places to buy tickets by the river. If you are spending the night there you can shop around for a bus ticket.

Re: hello

so you mean even late at night there are still bus going to siem reap? coz our arrival from bangkok is 4pm.

Re: hello

by paulwf

If I were you I would stay overnight in Phnom Penh. The hotels are reasonably cheap. You can then shop around for a bus you like. My hotel booked my bus ticket but the bus was not the most comfortable. You should also enjoy at least 1 night in Phnom Penh anyway. It's a long drive to Siem Reap, around 6 hours so perhaps you should have a good night sleep first. There are lots of restaurants around the river where bus tickets are sold so make the most of it.

I donĀ“t recommend starting off for Siem Reap so late. There are many reasons for this. If you are "landing" at the airport you cannot expect to leave Phnom Penh at the same hour that you arrive. Far from it! If you are arriving from abroad (from far off?) you will need rest. Just getting to the departure point (PP-SR) will take time. It may be POSSIBLE to set off the same day - but it is unrealisitic tryig to do so.

Re: hello

by Potato-Brigade

My very best advice is to use your arrival afternoon getting to the PP-SR departure point, find a place to stay nearby, have a nice evening meal, a promenade, and an early start to Siem Reap in the morning. You want to come home again with WONDERFUL MEMORIES not with a HEADACHE and STOMACH PAINS. :)

Re: hello

by Eggboy

you can travel by road to SR by hiring a car/driver at that time of the afternoon or like the others have said you can stay the night and catch the bus the next morning from down near Sisowath Quay. Bus/road trip is about 5 hours with a stop over in Kompong THom around half way. You can also grab a flight to SR on Bangkok Airways. They have a web site if you care to google them.
By the way, I have done both flight and bus. Both are good. :-)

Several bus companies provide transportation from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap. The Mekong Express Limousine Bus is one of the better ones. It is about a 6-hour trip including a 15 minute stop in Kompong Thom. Departure times were 07:30, 08:30, 12:30 and 14:00 daily in Mar 09.

There is a nightbus going to SR at around midnight. Bus is okay and drivers as well. Arrival in SR around 6.30 am.

Travel Tips for Phnom Penh

Excellent service & honest

by anoum

This travel agent gave us the best rate when we wanted to change our US dollars to rial. He was helpful, friendly, honest. He also helped us book the bus to Siem Reap, recommending Angkor Express. He also recommended a hotel, Garden Village at Siem Reap, for us and we found out that both recommendations were good. He arranged for the Angkor Express van to pick us up at our guest house (no extra charge) and got good seats on the bus for us.

His shop address: St93 Sras Chork, Phnom Penh. Nice people like this travel agent and the owners at Home Away from Home guest house. Both places are on the same street although there are slight differences in their addresses.

Royal palace

by extrajoce

The royal palace allows for a nice walk in a quiet , lush and rich environment. The contrast with the bustling streets outside its walls is exactly what is needed to understand the growing discontent by the people against royalty and the colonialists, which led to the eventual uprisings and takeover by the Khmer Rouge.
The palace pales in comparison and history with the one in Bangkok, and shows the futile attempt by the Sihanouk family to have as much prestige as the powerful Thai and Vietnamese neighbours. Nevertheless, the king retains great respect in the heart of the Cambodians.
So a visit to Phnom Penh should definitely include the palace to understand the royal component of the complex political jigsaw this country is.
City center, not far from the river (can be seen on my Phnom Penh page aerial photo)

Crossing the road

by traceyspacey

In order to get across a road in Cambodia. Walk calmly across the road.The cars,tuk tuks and motos will go around you. If you move suddenly you are more likely to get hit. Takes a bit of getting used to.

Hot and Humid - T shirts

by XKuger

Pack a lot of Tshirts as its hot and humid all through the yeat. Even in December which is a much cooler time of the year I was sweating bullets and my shirt was drenched in sweat.

I did not find any insect or misquito problems, maybe december isn't too bad.

Quiet road going to the Killing Fields

by extrajoce

After all the traffic and trouble of getting out of Phnom Penh, the shaded and quiet red dirt road that leads to the Killing Fields is a real treat. It allows for views of 'eternal Asia': people riding bicycles, a man using his ox to plough a field, or people sitting in the shade.
To get off the beaten track, and as recommended in my transport tip, hire a motorcycle, or even a bicycle, and you won't regret the independance it provides along with a different view on the country.
