Cambodia is a popular Southeast Asian Country for backpackers because it is cheap and offers a lot of options to the travelers. But, what if I told you that you can further reduce your travel cost to this amazing country even while traveling solo?
Yes, that is right! Cambodia is an inexpensive country but what a lot of people don't know is that USD is one of the major currencies accepted here. As a result, the tour packages and entrance tickets to main attractions are high and can easily leave you with an empty wallet if not careful.
I traveled to Cambodia solo for my birthday and was able to enjoy myself for 10 days here in just 34,000 INR. And here is how you can do it too!
I had booked my roundtrip flight to Cambodia from Phnom Penh because it was cheaper. As a result, I had to plan my trip in such a way that I am back in Phnom Penh on the 10th day in order to not miss my flight.
My Hyderabad to Phnom Penh flight tickets cost me 16,000 INR for the round trip. And then, from Phnom Penh, I went straight to Siem Reap and spent 3 days here, exploring the ruins and city. Next, I took a bus back to Phnom Penh and spend 2 days here, exploring the historical places.
Then, I headed to Sihanoukville to enjoy some beach time and took a ferry to Koh Rong island. On my 10th day, I took a ferry back to Sihanoukville and then a bus to Phnom Penh to catch my evening flight.
This would be my suggested route for people who have Phnom Penh as their to and fro airport from Cambodia:
Phnom Penh - Siem Reap - Phnom Penh - Sihanoukville - Koh Rong - Phnom Penh
