The trip from Bangkok to Siem Reap is one of the heavily discussed routes in the region. That is because when visiting to Bangkok, many tourists are attracted by the remarkable Angkor Wat located in Siem Reap Cambodia, neighboring country of Thailand. Many would consider it is a well worth trip to visit one of the world’s most impressive UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Siem Reap can be easily accessed by bus, train or flight from Bangkok.
Both airline and budget airline charge quite significantly for an hour-long flight. Unless you have the affordability, taking flight from Bangkok to Siem Reap is not recommended. Besides that expensive fare, flight does not offer the gorgeous sight of regional country life, such as the paddy fields, traditional wooden huts, and water buffalo at the side of the road.
Train is another option to go from Bangkok to Siem Reap at reasonable cost. But the major drawback of taking train is the long duration journey. Most people opt for bus because it is a lot faster.
Hence, direct bus from Bangkok to Siem Reap is the easiest way and budget to do the trip overland.
