5 Sample BANGKOK-SIEM REAP Itineraries: 4-8 Days

Bangkok and Siem Reap are two of the most popular destinations in the Southeast Asian region. Both are world-famous for magnificent ancient temples, vibrant cultural heritage, and warm, hospitable people. The best part, they’re easily accessible from each other by air and by land.

The two great cities are 8-10 hours apart, depending on traffic and including the visa stops on both sides of the border. You can travel by plane, by bus, or a combination of train and bus/car. For more detailed information about traveling overland, read this: Bangkok to Siem Reap by Bus or Train.

In a nutshell, the most efficient, most comfortable overland way is by direct bus. Giant Ibis Bus is the most reputable company operating this route. You can search for buses or reserve a seat here: Bangkok-Siem Reap Bus.
