Has anyone taken the boat from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap? If so, is it worth it? I plan on going at the end of June, rainy season, any issues there? How long does it take? I heard 5 hour and 9 hours and same for the bus.

Mort,
I have done both ways and will try to help. The boat is much more expensive, a rip off actually. the Locals pay about $15, we pay $22-25. Whatever the traffic will bear. But, the boat can be more fun and does offer some scenic views on the river and Tonle Sap. If you are a bit short of money, take the bus. If the weather is OK and you want the experience, shop around for the best price for the boat. I do have some photos of the boat trip in my photo gallery. Either way, Angkor should not be missed if you are in Cambodia. Good luck to you.

hi

the boat is about 5 hours and def. the way to go. you go in the morning about 7 am. and arrive at the floating village at about noon. its a beautiful trip and as mike said, angkor wat is not to be missed when in cambodia.
