Route Info – Road Trip Cambodia

This post is a continuation of the previous post Route – Info Road Trip Southeren Thailand from Hat Yai to Arayanprathet

This is the actual route I took making a loop in Cambodia starting with entry from Poi Pet and exiting at Koh Kong back into Thailand. I know its a popular route for it is possible after the loop in Cambodia will hit back south towards home Malaysia. I went up north of Thailand after 1 month in Cambodia but that's for another Route Info Post.

(Entry from Thailand) Poi Pet -> Battambang -> Siem Reap -> Sra’aem (to visit Preah Vihear) -> Kaoh Ker -> Kampong Thom -> Kampong Cham - > Phnom Penh -> Kep -> Kampot -> Sihanoukville -> Koh Kong (Exit into Thailand Trat Province)

Route Info - Cambodia Loop From Poi Pet to Koh Kong

Things of interest .... to my point of view ...

Poi Pet

Run as fast as possible ... Border Town but the Casino is twice the size of the town so run run run away as fast as possible once legally across the border


A city in the middle of a very huge rice field which can be seen for miles into the horizon. Best place to relax with shops to explore in the city and mini day trips visiting Banan Temple, Bamboo train, Phanom Sampov ( Temple on the Hill with amazing View of Battambang ), Ek Phanom Temple.

Siem Reap

Re-visit Angkor Wat. It never gets dull this place and of course the mass tourism means standard tourist town as well with all amenities.


This was the closest town with guesthouse to Preah Vihear. Single street town, Visit Preah Vihear.

Kaoh Ker

Single Street Town with almost no food. Most people just do a day trip to see the Ruins of Koh Ker but I stayed a night there.

Kampong Thom

Nice little town to explore on foot with nearby day trips to visits the Ruins of Prasat Sambor Prei Kuk and Phanom Suntuk

Kampong Cham

A town by the Mekong River. To be fair I know most guides will say to visit the famous Phanom Pros & Phanom Srei but I basicly just wander around the town and sit by the river chilling most of the time.

Phnom Penh

Casino + Gambling ...


Seaside town good to relax on a hammock lazing the day away while eating crab everyday


One of my favorite place in Cambodia. The town is compact to explore on foot with lots of variant things to see but the highlight will be day trip to visit Bokor National Park which has the best roads in Cambodia going uphill into beautiful mountains and at the very top, many small roads to explore abandon buildings in cool cloud weather. There was also a Casino at the top which had USD 2 Blackjack table.


Am I in a city or a construction site ?? The Chinese money seams to be abundant here in Sihanouk and Casino seams to pop up like mushrooms. If you can ignore the noise then the beach is beautiful but it is unlike any other place in Cambodia I have experience for it felt more China than Cambodia.

Koh Kong

Border Town to cross over to Trat Thailand. I kinda like this town thou since it was quiet and large enough to ride around for a day just exploring.
