As a backpacker, it is rule of thumb. You set out in the day in search of history/experience and at the night the nocturnal animal walks in search of beer. So, look no further than the pub street. With cheap alcohol and great food, this is truly the place to end your nights.
Logistics of Cambodia
Indians can get E-Visa that costs 30$ approximately and take 3 working days to be approved.
How to get to Siem Reap?
You can take a direct bus from the capital, Phnom Phen. You can take the day bus or the night sleeping bus. We took the day bus on our way to Siem Reap, and the sleeping bus on our way back. The buses are extremely comfortable and worth the money.
Price – 13$
Time – 4-5 hours
While it is the more flexible option, it is almost 3-times the price and does not save much time.
Probably the most expensive and time-consuming way to arrive in Siem Reap from Phnom Phen.
But if you are anywhere else, you can fly out directly to Siem reap without stopping in the capital.
How to get around Siem Reap?
The easiest way to get around Siem Reap is by Tuk-Tuk. They are quick and cheap. If you need a contact for a Tuk-Tuk driver, I can give you the number of our driver upon request. He was kind and made us feel very safe.
Is Siem Reap safe for solo female travellers?
A big YES! We were two girls travelling and not even once did we feel unsafe. We wandered the streets late at night and it was safe.
