From SR you have more options:...
From SR you have more options: bus, pick-up and boat. I actually wanted to take the old military hellicopter but this possibility doesn't exist any more. After the bad memories of the pick-up I decided to take again the boat for 20 $ starting with the bus from the hotel at 5.30h (pretty eraly in the morning)
Walk or take a motorbike, but not the ones standing in front of the GH as they chrge deffinitly to much.
From Siem Reap to Bangkok
Go to a travel agent and arrange the transportation at least 2 days before departure. The bus will be full if arranging it last minute. Cost: $7/pp. The trip takes 12 hours (including stops for lunch, immigration, border crossing)
A better option for tourist: If you have four passengers, arrange a private taxi at Siem Reap (only cost $30 per taxi) and it will take you to to the border. From Thai border to Bangkok: Go to the bus station (near the immigration office) and take an A/C bus (only $4/pp). This trip only take 7 hours!! (Highly recommend this option)
To arrange the taxi, go to a travel agent one block west of the market (sorry but I forgot the name of the travel agent)
No international flights from...
No international flights from USA/Canada/Europe go into P.Penh, so you have to come from BKK/HK/SIN first in almost all cases. The flight from BKK is pretty cheap and takes about one hour. I took bangkok airways and had a different exit port(siem reap) then my entry(p.penh) and it came out to 140 USD.
Its easy to wave down anyone on a bike, they're always looking for alittle extra money taking a tourist someplace. Beware, Crossing the street at the rush time is quite a task esp. on sisowath quay, the riverfront area.
The mini-van from Poipet to...
The mini-van from Poipet to Bangkok. The same vehicle also from Phnom Penh to Saigon. The first thing is, you must expect the bus' lousy air-con because they are actually driving on muddy and yellow earth road ful of dust, once the dust filled up the air-con, you better start enjoying bus-sauna. The road condition is just like watching off-road dirt bike racing on tv but hey, that's what we want, enjoy.

To move around in PP you have to use moto-taxis, Driver have very bad reputation, but they will help you a lot and we haven’t had any problems with them. You would have to bargain hart, they always want 1$.
SilkAir operates two flights per day from and to Singapore. Flight Time is only 2 hours and flights cost something around SGD 450 if you book early. Look out for their hot deals as well.

The trip cost $6 each and the bus was big and modern with air conditioning so we settled down to enjoy the ride to Cambodia.
