At Siem Reap airport, the Cambodia visa process is relatively smooth and hassle free. Getting from the airport into Siem Reap is also painless as town is only seven kilometres away.

The budget conscious can go from Ho bỏ ra Minh city to Siem Reap by bus. Tickets start at 400,000 dong, but the trade off is time as there is the land border crossing, rest stops and almost all require a break/bus change in Phnom Penh.

Some companies have many departures from Ho chi Minh đô thị throughout the morning but their Phnom Penh khổng lồ Siem Reap service is an overnight sleeper bus, departing late at night. Kiểm tra on arrival/departure times to spare yourself a long layover.

On the positive side, buses khổng lồ Cambodia depart right from Saigon’s backpacker hub Pham dại Lao (meaning you don’t need khổng lồ travel to the bus station) và the roads on the Cambodian side khổng lồ both Phnom Penh & Siem Reap have greatly improved in recent years. It’s still a long drive và will likely take longer than companies quote, but the journey is less gruelling than it once was.
