When the first of the bohemians first began to discover the kingdom of Cambodia after the Vietnam War, using the term road was simply an easy way to speak the improved traces of an endless swamp; the crack of an ax, a crushing oil pan shiver
Soon announced the main stage attraction millions of years in the making, is the road between Sre Amble and the Thai border at Had Lek, during which you will swim through one of the largest, only slightly plundered, original jungle forests in the world. This vast area covers a million acres, with several very clear water reservoirs. You will be mesmerized by the waves of dense leaves that fade from black and silver to gray, which eventually merge with the clouds with little, if any, signs of human presence.
Today 3 of the 4 main bridges, which in the past were unforgettable river crossings, are open, and the 4th will be promised online by the Khmer New Year. Adventure on these river crossings will be missed, while at the same time you can reach Bangkok from Phnom Penh in just over 12 hours; Today, the best you can do is around 16 hours.
Given the distance traveled, bus travel is still the cheapest way to travel to Bangkok, expect to pay from 25 to 30 USD for example from Phnom Penh to Bangkok compared to 75 USD + with fuel surcharge airport charges to Bangkok cheap flights on Air Asia or Bangkok Air.
Enjoying the scenery has always been one of the real treasures of travel in Cambodia, when you slide along the shimmering rice ponds with sentinels from sugar palm trees, which allows you to take pictures in your mind for permanent memories of this exotic land.
