I have a plan to travel to Siem Reap & Cambodia in Sept 2013. Is this period a good time to visit these places? What the must see things in these two places?

Any answers are mostly welcomed.

Hi Muthu & welcome to the Cambodian forum

September is a lovely time to visit Cambodia and the Temples of Angkor are spectacular at this time of the year.

there are many other wonderful things to see & do in Siem Reap. Without knowing anything about you, your likes & the time you have it is impossible to suggest things.

please look at the 'things to do' link in the green bar at the top.

you might also check out www.canbypublications.com and www.travelfish.org

these sites will help you with a draft itinerary - and if you post this we can help you fine tune it

cheers

helen

muthu ... TA does not stand for travel agent. Trip Advisor is a community of travellers who offer help and suggestions to others. YOU have to do some research and plan your own trip - we can offer suggestions once we know what YOU plan to do - we do not plan trips for other people.

Work out your draft itinerary and post it here - THEN we can help you further

When offering suggestions on YOUR itinerary it is helpful to know how long you are going for, what you would like to see and what your budget is.

cheers

My plan is for 1 week travelling. I would like to visit Floating markets, Angkor Wat & other temples. Some other places i would like to visit are waterfalls, local markets & free & easy.

I also would like to visit Royal Palaces, museum & some other historical places. Is it possible to visit all these places in 1 week & how much usually will this cost? My budget is around $2,000 US dollar per person.

Please guide me.

4 nights in Siem Reap, bus to Battanbang (2 nights) bus to Phnom Penh (2 nights) would be a good start

check out www.canbypublications.com or www.travelfish.org (links to Cambodia in blue at the top)

plenty of choices of accommodation in all these cities (see the hotels tab in green at the top of this page) and lost to do (see the 'things to do' tab at the top of the page for each city forum)

does your $2k include airfares?

We spend 3 days in Siem Reap - Day 1: Angkor wat, Bayon, Ta Prohm. Day 2: Banteay Srei, landmine museum, Beng Mealea, Day 3: Kompong Phhluk floating village. I think it was a good amount of time - we were a bit sick of temples by the end of day 2 to be honest. We didn't make it to Phnom Penh - instead we flew to Luang Prabang (Laos) which we absolutely loved - highlight of our trip.
