As a developing country Cambodia doesn’t offer much choice for transportation. Flight and vehicle are used most for travelers. Indochina Odyssey Tours lists the common means of transportation for your reference.
Getting to Cambodia
At this moment, there are only two airports handling international flights: the Phnom Penh International Airport and the Siem Reap International Airport. The former one is the largest airport in Cambodia while the latter is the busiest one in terms of passenger traffic for it is located near the famous tourist site, Angkor Wat. With transnational flights, it’s pretty convenient to travel between Asian countries like China, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand. If you are on the mood of doing a fantastic Indochina tour, have a look at our selected 18-Day Colorful Thailand, Cambodia & Vietnam.
Indochina Odyssey Tours helps arrange flights for those taking our tour service or wanting a flight ticket to the next destination.
From Cham Yeam, an international border checkpoint at the west of Koh Kong province in Thailand, visitors can enter Cambodia by land. An e-visa is applicable.
Getting around Cambodia
Domestic planes offer a quick way to getting around between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap with five flights a day. Currently we use Cambodia Angkor Air for internal travel. Air tickets are usually booked up in the high season (from November to February), so it’s suggested make your booking with us at an early date.
Transfer by motorbike is the most common scene you can see in major urban centers like Phnom and Siem Reap: it’s cheap, quick and easy to hail everywhere. On the flip side, not all moto drivers are able to speak your language and some of them even try to make a rip-off. We have 9-seat, air-con vans to offer, with experienced driver and ice box for you to break from the heat. Check out more details about our private tour guide and driver.
Boats are mainly used for rivers and lakes travel. We arrange boat trips along Tonle Sap Lake, which dwells a floating village and offers spectacular scenery along the way.
Most taxis are available outside the arrival hall of the airport. Bringing a map captioned with both English and Cambodian will do you great favor. The fares from airport to city cost no more than $8.
Cyclo could be a pleasant way to experience the real Cambodia. If you intend doing a slow city tour, try it. Remember to hackle the price before you get on.
