Luggage and bags: A small backpack (duffy bag) is very useful to take for daytrip
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Battambang is the only place during our trip in Cambodia where we need a sweater, we were surprise when we took the tuk tuk in the morning that the wind was cold. The sun wasn't out that day it looks like foggy so we thought maybe that was the causes of cold wind. Take a sweater during your trip in Cambodia, you can always used this. If traveling by buses the aircon can be chill
Luggage and bags: Backpacks and messenger bags are very convenient. Money belts also come in handy. You can't really tell it's there unless you're carrying a lot of money of course.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The best type of clothes to bring would be shorts, cropped pants, t-shirts, and tank tops. For the rainy season, you should also pack a poncho. It keeps the water out and is very lightweight. Swimsuits and swimming trunks are great for the pool/beach. For the feet, flip flops are good because you can put it on and take if off real quick. Running shoes are also great for visiting ruins. I wore my flip flops 99% of the time I was in Cambodia.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I highly recommend bringing a lot of toilet paper because most of the public restrooms do not carry it. Carry a roll everywhere you go. Wet wipes or baby wipes are really good too. Also bring with you; pain reliever/fever reducer, Immodium, and a mini first aid kit.
Photo Equipment: Digital cameras! If you love to take photos of everything and anything, carry a 4G memory card or two 2G memory cards. Depending on the resolution, you could get over 2000 photos with a 2G SD card. Tripods are a must. Especially if you want to get everyone in the picture and there is nothing the camera can rest on.
Luggage and bags: Traveling light is imperative if you want to do things like take the river trip from Battambang to Siem Reap. A backpack is sturdy and more easily taken onto and off the boat via the wooden planks provided.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Sandals are nice but sturdy boots are better for going from point A to B with a heavy pack.
Photo Equipment: A wide angle lets you capture the vast expanse of river life but a good zoom is essential for capturing locals going about their daily chores.
