Cambodia has a wide variety of transport options, from private cars for hire in major cities to boats crossing lakes.
Phnom Penh and Siem Reap are the two destinations where you can fly into the country.
The Cambodian local transportation system is operated mainly by private companies and unorganised local vendors. There is a wide private bus network for travelling from one city to another while tuktuks (three-wheeled motorised vehicles) are an easy and affordable way to travel within cities and towns.
Towns are generally walkable however main attractions such as Angkor Wat and the Khmer Rouge Killing Fields are outside of cities and require you to drive, tour or hire a driver to get to. The Angkor Wat complex itself is not walkable if you wish to see it all, so again, it's best to book transport to get around. Similarly, the Killing Fields encompass numerous sites and require suitable transport to get from location to location.
Taxis: In major cities you can hail a taxi on the street or book in advance by phone. In smaller towns, tuktuks are a workable alternative to taxis.
Rideshare: There is no Uber in Cambodia but you can use a similar on-demand service called PassApp. Along with taxis, you can also book tuktuks using this app.
If you prefer a private vehicle for airport transfer, you can book a car in advance for Phnom Penh and Siem Reap airports.

Compared with the average Aussie price of a beer, coffee, or mid-range three-course meal for two Cambodia is much cheaper.
In Australia we'd usually pay about $80 for a three-course meal for two people, whereas in Cambodia, you'd be looking at something like $19.64 for the equivalent.
Draught beer would usually be in the region of $7, whereas Cambodia's prices are closer to $1.27 (averaged out).
Even taxi transportation is at least half the price we pay at home.
Angkor Wat is Cambodia's temple complex and the largest religious monument in the world. It is situated approximately 5.5 kilometres from Siem Reap.
Yes. Cambodia is home to some amazing beaches along the Gulf of Thailand, with one of the main coastal tourist areas being in and around Sihanoukville. It offers lazy beaches with beautiful white sands that span the coast for kilometres, and even beaches constructed entirely of shells.
Cambodia is considered to be pretty safe for travellers now, despite it's past reputation. There are a few things you'll need to be aware of, however, if you're planning to get out and about whilst there.
The climate in Cambodia is hot. Cotton shorts or a skirt, vest tops and T-shirts are popular with tourists, but offer little UV protection.
If you're planning a visit to sacred sites, you will need to cover up.During your visit to any place of worship your legs and shoulders must be covered. Long, loose-fitting trousers paired with a long-sleeved cotton shirt would be a good option here.
A pashmina or sarong is another option that can be used for protection from the sun or as a respectful cover-up.
