Traveler Review: Battambang to Siem Reap by Mekong Express VIP bus
Most travelers who enter Cambodia from Thailand by bus will cross the border at Poipet. Once on this route, the first stop on the tourist circuit is Battambang, Cambodia’s second largest city. Battambang is a sleepy city set on the banks of the Sangker River. It is famous for its French Colonial architecture, mountaintop temples and as being the place where tourists in Cambodia can ride the bamboo train, called the Norry locally. It is also less than 100km away from Siem Reap and the world famous Angkor Wat.

This write up describes the quickest way to travel from Siem Reap to Kampot and Siem Reap to Kep by bus.
The majority of tourists who enter Cambodia by air fly into the Kingdom’s busiest airport in Siem Reap. They do this in order to see Angkor Wat – one of the architectural and religious wonders of the world. After that, most of them will make their way down to the South of the country to Kampot, Kep or Sihanoukville for some rest and relaxation after the heat of Siem Reap.
