Vietnam and Cambodia is neighbor country. Tourists can choose combination tours instead of Vietnam tours only or Cambodia tours to enjoy beauty of Indochina land. There are 3 ways to move between two countries: by plane, by bus and by boat.
By plane, it is easy and popular way. From Saigon, there is only Tan Son Nhat international Airport to take flight to Sieam Reap. It takes about 2 hours to get Airport in Sieam Reap. There are 2 airlines that are Vietnam Airlines and Cambodia Angkor Air to explore this route directly. Air ticket is around 100usd per way.
When you get Siem Reap Airport, it is easy to take a taxi to go to down town. Please to note that it is just round 7km, not so far. You should know that to bargain with taxi driver.
How to cross by bus via border gate? This is one question that get much interesting from travelers. It takes 12 hours to reach Siem Reap. This route is divided into 2 stages: Stage one from Saigon to Phnom Penh. You will have 6 hours on sit on bus. Stage 2: arrival in Phnom Penh, we will move to local bus to continue the journey. You will get to Siem Reap after more 6 hours.

Beside 2 ways above, I’d like to mention one more way. That is moving by boat. It is not popular way because travelers must to move about 5 hours to go to Chau Doc firstly. One night in Chau Doc is necessary. Because, speed boat will leave Chau Doc to Phnom Penh on the early morning next day, around 6:00 am. Time is 6 hours for this route.
To reach Siem Reap, tourists need to overnight one more nite at Phnom Penh to wait for other speed boat that leaves Sisowath Quay in Phnom Penh at 7:30 am to ride to Siem Reap. This speed boat ride every day. Please take note that, it just reachz Chong Kneas after 7 hours boating, then you must to take a taxi or tuk tuk for go to Sieam Reap.
You can choose one 3 ways to have perfect trip for yourself.
