Cambodia for 5 days.

Jump to last reply

Will visit Cambodia later this year. I will fly to Phnom Phen and leave from Siem Reap or vice versa. I will be flying on a short flight from within Asia so jet lag won't be an issue.

I have a maximum of 5 days (6 nights) to spend in the country, one of which will be a travel day between Phnom Pehn and Siem Reap. I plan on travelling between the two cities by bus. Debating how I should divide the days, 2 full days in Phnom Pehn and 2 or 1 full day in Phnom Phen and 3 in Siam Reap.

These are the sights I am interested in:-

Siam Reap - Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Ta Phohm - not sure about seeing other temples, I really don't want to get "templed out". Would like to see sunrise at Angkor Wat, any tips on sunrise at Angkor Wat? An obligatory stop at Artisans d'Angkor should take care of my souvenir shopping. Do I need three days for these sights or can these be seen in two days? Any other comments on Siam Reap will be appreciated.

Phnom Pehn - the SIlver Pagaoda, the Royal Palace, the National Museum , the Central Market and the Independence Monument. The Killing fields and genocide sights are of no interest.

Tonle Sap is of interest but I don't know how to incorporate this into the itinerary, maybe as a day trip from Siam Reap.

Any information on how to set up the sightseeing itinerary will be appreciated. Thank you.
