  1. I am devising a plan for my vacation in some Southeast Asia countries, including Vietnam. I still haven’t decided the next country after my visit to Vietnam, but Phnom Penh seems to be a great choice. Can someone give me more information about Phnom Penh? And what is the best way to travel from Ho Chi Minh City to there?

    1. Dear Yuuma,
      Phnom Penh, located on the banks of Tonle Sap and Mekong River, is the capital and largest city of Cambodia. Moreover, this city is also the nation’s center of economic, politic and cultural activities. Phnom Penh, together with Siem Reap and Sihanoukville, are significant cities of Cambodia, which attract many global and domestic tourists. The city is famous for its beautiful and historical architecture, which is once considered as one of the loveliest French-build city in Southeast Asia.
      To travel from Ho Chi Minh City to Phnom Penh, there are many choices of transportation for your reference, such as airplanes, buses and cars. Each transportation means has its pros and cons. Taking a flight to Phnom Penh is the fastest, but the most expensive way, which is suitable for those with less travel time. As suggested by many experienced tourists, taking a bus or going on a tour would be a better choice considering the chance of sightseeing beautiful landscapes while we’re driving through peaceful countryside roads and visit some interesting sites on the way. Going on a bus is also a perfect choice for budged travelers because of its reasonable prices and good services. Moreover, flexible departure schedules as well as short travel time are the big pros of taking a bus.
      Have a nice trip!

  2. What are the big holidays in Cambodia that tourists should participate in?

    1. Dear Usman, there are some important holidays and festivals worth checking out in Cambodia:
       Chinese New Year – an important traditional holiday celebrated by both Chinese and Khmers in January (or February) to start a lunar year.
       Chaul Chnam – also known as Cambodian New Year, based on Khmer calendar. This holiday lasts for 3 days, which usually begin on April 13 or 14th.
       Visakha Puja – This holiday is celebrated by Buddhists around the world to commemorate Buddha’s birthday.
       P’chum Ben – a 15-day Cambodian religious festival. The day is a time when many Cambodians pay their respects to deceased relatives.
       Bon Om Tuk – known as the Cambodian Water Festival, celebrated in November. The festival lasts for three days to commemorate the end of the rainy season in Cambodia.
      Thank you for the question.

  3. Why is the travel time of day-time bus different from night-time bus? Can anyone explain that?

    1. Dear John,
      For those buses that depart in the morning, they will go through Moc Bai border crossing without any delay before accessing to Cambodia. The buses departing at night, however, will go on a different route, which passes through another border crossing, where you have to wait some hours until it re-opens after the break. That’s why the travel time of day-buses and night-buses is different.
      Thank you for the question.

  4. Do I need to get a visa before entering to Cambodia? If yes, where can I get one?

    1. Dear Puteri,
      You must have visa to enter Cambodia. You will be issued an entry-visa upon your arrival. To get more information, you should contact directly with the Immigration Police Unit at international airports in Cambodia. If you live in the country where the Royal Embassies and Consulates of Cambodia installed, you can go there to get visa in advance. Besides, you can also apply for E-visa on the website http://evisa.mfaic.gov.kh

  5. I don’t know much about Cambodia culture. Please give me some cultural tips I should know to avoid being offensive?

    1. Dear Nadia, here are some rules you should know:
      o Take off your shoes when entering someone’s house and worship places.
      o Wear neat, formal clothes covering arms and legs when visiting worship places, like temples and pagodas.
      o Only handle food with your right hand.
      o Tipping is not a must in Cambodia.
      o Avoid raising your voice or displaying anger.
      Thank you for the question.
