Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us.

Angkor Air $5 flights!

Sure, taxes and "YQ" (seems to be an international surcharge? meaning it wouldn't apply to domestic flights?) will be added... buy still beats a 13 hour bus ride to Siem Reap. Think the wife and I may have ourselves a little mini holiday.

Yeah, but apparently booking doesn't start until 15 May. The printed ad mentioned a lot of locations to and from Siem Reap, but now you mention it, I think all of them may have been international.

It also flies siem reap to s'ville. nice and cheap. even if taxes take it up to $30 a ticket it still beats the hell out of taking the bus/taxi/my car.

According to this tax is as follows:

Airport Tax
From Phnom Penh International - Airport in Phnom Penh
International Departure Tax US $ 25 per person and domestic $6 per person

From Siem Reap International - Airport in Siem Reap
International Departure Tax US $ 25 and Domestic $6 per person

Doesn't list S'Ville rates but I imagine they're the same. Not like that shoebox of an airport needs much funding.

Realistically, at $11 a flight, it would be a good way to get from PP to SV via SR. $22 each way and not having to worry if the bus/cab is going to smash into a cow. Probably about 2.5 hours flight time... so close to the same speed as a taxi and apparently include a snack box with a bit of cake and a water.

^ I'd pay a fair bit more than that to avoid the bus/your car (no offence, it's just that it smells funny - do you wash?) so $11 each way would be a treat

Taxes and fuel surcharge between Sihanoukville and Siam Reap will be about $55 for a return flight. So 2x $5 + $55 ~$65 for a return ticket.
PP - Siam Reap should be $10 more.
