A bus will take you from Phnom Penh and through the KH and VN border crossings through to Saigon.

A taxi can only take you to the border but can not cross it.

So you need a taxi on either side of the border.in either direction.

Bus is by far and away the cheaper and simpler choice.

Best regards. Ian

To make my research complete, I looked up one way air fare HCMC to Siem Reap. Least expensive per Tripadvisor was $185. from Bravo Air Congo.

It had some real bad press and was blacklisted a few years back.

ANY INFO THIS AIRLINE APPRECIATED.
