Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and Sihanoukville. Where next?


Recommended Posts

I've been to all three places. Phnom Penh I loved because it wasn't that touristy. Siem Reap was good, but Sihanoukville seems to have just beaches and looks to be more touristy than Siem Reap.

Are there any other cities in Cambodia that I can visit for a few days before I move on to Vietnam?

Mondulkiri has best waterfall in Cambodia. Elephant trekking. Hills. Great climate. Cheap accommodation. Easy fast bus service from Phnom Penh

I wouldn't go so far as to say fast, it's a long trip (though quicker than it used to be).

Rest yes, it is very beautiful. Rattanakiri and Koh Kong are other possible destinations if ecotourism- type places and natural beauty appeal.

Koh Kong being the closest/least travel time of the 3.

but if you are heading to Viet nam, Kampot/Kep makes more sense logistically.

Where next?

It's all been done on Earth ... Head for Mars! I think there's a company signing volunteers up for a one way trip right now!

Bon Voyage! ... Live long and prosper ... and may the force be with you!

I am going to be spending a week in SHV next month. I would like to visit Kampot for a day/night during this week. I am thinking a hiring a bike from Snooky and getting a room for the night at a guesthouse.

I have rode bikes around SE Asia before. Can anyone advise on the state of the road, how busy/safe it is, or would getting a bus be preferable?

I enjoy riding bikes instead of bussing it, but have never done this stretch of road before, how long is it, approx. 2 hours?

Lastly, is it dodgy leaving the bike overnight in Kampot, because of theft, if so can anyone recommend any GH that are safe to leave the bike in their grounds?

Be sure to wear a helmet and drive defensively, lots of accidents in Cam, and it is not a good place to be injured in (in terms of medical care).

Most guesthouses would let you park moto inside their gates/ground, they'll have other motos (including those of the staff/owners) to be guarded anyhow.
