im in Koh Chang and need to get to siem reap. from there im working my way through cambodia to vietnam. ive been quoted all kinds of silly prices up to 5700baht by one lady not including visa!. All the travel agencies here go to phnom penh for like 1200baht but i really want to it cheaply by going to siem reap before phnom penh. Any advice would be greatly received, cheers
From Trat, get a bus to Chanthaburi, change at Chantaburi for a bus to Aranyprathet. At Aranyprathet get a tuk tuk to the border and cross, the border into Poipet. Walk straight through town to the roundabout and get in a shar taxi to Siem Riep. All very straightforward. Visa on arrival is available and costs USD20 - you'll need one passport photo.
