This isn't going to be much help as I haven't done it recently so can't remember cost or time taken, but do remember that the roads were pretty bad even by Thai / Cambodian main road standards so wouldn't recommend it unless you are on an extremely tight budget and with time on your side (and want to get a feel for the 'real Thailand').

Having said that Angkor Wat and the surrounding area is impressive to say the least so well worth the journey there.

If at all possible fly!

 

An alternative is fly to Phnom Penh and then PP to Siem Reap by ferry boat, about as smooth as any trip I've taken throughout SE Asia, but still 5 hours +

Last year the flights were around $200+ US but for some reason this year they are a lot more than that

why ?? who knows with flights and airlines.

I did the trip a few years ago, bus from Bangkok to the border with Cambodia (Poi Pet- spelling ?) and then by taxi in to Siem Reap, the bus fare was very little maybe 150B ? and the taxi I think was 1200Baht for two of us but as was said the road was terrible and it took like 6.5 hors to travel the 160km+.

I think the road has now been paved, not sure but it was not an easy trip when I did it, Poi Pet was an absolute crazy place . But having said that I would not have missed the trip for the world as it was a life experience, but I did fly back to Bangkok as the rain came and again washed out the road.

Do a search and I'm sure you will come up with more current information, and yes it's worth the trip Agkor is fantastic ! good luck

If God hadn't meant you to eat it , he wouldn't have made it look like a taco !

 

 

I'd rather burn out than rust away !

Forget the boat, it's Monsoon, $36 OW now, & a claustrophobic experience if you can sit on top. Fly to PNH on Air Asia & get a bus. IMHO you should look into a 'Discovey Airpass' from BKK Air. You'll save 40-50%, but you've gotta buy 3 links. http://www.bangkokair.com/discovery-airpass/index.php Wait a seccond, they've got a Visa 2fer going on now too ! http://www.bangkokair.com/promotions/index.php

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
