Will be arriving in Cambodia April 20th and leaving 1-2 weeks later and I would like to fit in as many places as possible.
I am keen to make a detailed travel itinerary for when I am there, but am not sure what the best things to there are. If you could give me any suggestions on what you would do in these 7-14days, I would be hugely appreciated. What are the best things to see and where to go?
Thank you very much for you're time, I look forward to you're suggestions and experience!
With kindest regards,
Siem Reap 4 - 2/3 days to look around Angkor Wat, take a day trip to Kbal Spean and Preah Vihear too.
Phnom Penh - S21, killing fields, Kings palace etc.
Then either Sihanoukville - chill out and have a huge bit of beach all to yourself on Otres beach, or go partying with the crowds on Occhetual beach. Have a day trip to Bamboo island. if you want somewhere quieter head to Kampot and Kep for some beach time.
Kampot/Kep are worth stopping if you're heading on to Vietnam after Cambodia.
Don't think you have enough time to head out into the hills of the east/north east.
Obviously, don't miss Angkor Wat, it's a marvelous site!
The boat ride between Siem Reap and Battambang is also worth the time, it's a opportunity to see great nature and the river life. But forget the boat trip between SR and PP, most of the time you're on the lake and won't see anything...
Battambang itself is a great place to rent a bike and to tour the countryside!
And of course, once in Phnom Penh, pay a visit to the Royal Palace, Tuol Sleng and the Killing Fields, to taste (sic) the history of this beautiful country.
And hence you've only two weeks, you won't have to time to visit the north east, areas such as Mondolkiri and Ratanakiri...
