    Default Photo Trip: Cambodia

    Anyone interested to join me in a 4 days trip to Combodia? Fly straight to Siem Reap to see Angor Wat via Silkair. Depart on Wed and come back by Saturday. End this month or early next month. Wanted to Depavali and Hari Raya period but I think the flights are fully booked.

    No other alternative airlines to get there? Transit by KL, Bangkok or Jarkata?

    No use. The alternative airlines all super-ex, and rather dubious. Presidential Scarelines and Bangkok Airways duopoly.

    I took the road to Siem Reap, from Bangkok instead! It was a bone-tingling road trip, to say the least. But Angkor is beautiful, I think spending sunset at Phnom Bakheng is better than going to Angkor Wat itself. And Ta Prohm and Bayon (the other Angkor temples) are, IMHO, much more photogenic than Angkor Wat.

    I thought so also, since I'm a poor student with hardly any salary. But I went to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap on a really tight budget! Cos I went by road.

    Airfare SG to Bangkok - $130 (jetstar)
    Bus to thai/cambo border - <$10
    Taxi from cambo border into phnom penh - $30 (only cos we booked the whole back seat so it was $30 each)

    Phnom Penh to Siem Reap - US$4 (bus)
    Siem Reap to Thai border - US$4
    Thai border to bangkok - S$4

    Not so bad right?

    Can read www.talesofasia.com for more on how to do that. =) And it's not as unsafe as people think it is. I went with another friend, just two of us girls, 20 years old. No problem at all. Staying at a decent place in Cambodia is only like US$14 a night, and quite luxuriously already - with air con and toilet and decent neighbourhood.

    Your adventurous nature is highly commendable!
    If my kakis are willing, I will no doubt consider such options too in the future.

    Can also consider going to Laos through Bangkok. Had some photographer friends who went recently, inclusive of airfare, shopping and accommodation in Bangkok, going to Laos for a week only set them back S$500?!

    Heard Laos is beautiful, with that kind of old world charm you don't see anywhere else in SEasia anymore.

    Happy travelling!

    There is a special promotion at Air Asia that flys to Phnom Penh for RM$99 (one way). From Phnom Penh we can fly to Siem Reap via Cambodia Air for around USD$50-70.
