hey there, the traveling plan sounds pretty cool. I have been to the other three places except Kratie.

Still remember the 2 months time i spent at Sihanoukville last year, cool guys i met there and fantastic trips i made to nearby boarders with my little motorbike (90 USD/m). SV is a quiet, peaceful and nice place to cool down your brain :), nice beach views and untouched nearby islands, all kinds of asian and western food, a lot of small businesses like guesthouses, restaurants and hotels are run by foreign expats. Definitely a new rising hot traveling destination in this region.

Good luck :)

2 days is tough for a trip like that, better add 2-3 days out of your annual leave or something. You can then enjoy the trip instead of rushing around.

Public transport like bus is acceptable these days as the roads are slowly being built up, but still far from great. Siam Reap is bit on the north of Phnom Phenh and Sihanoukville is located on the southern coast.

To save your time, you can take an international flight to Siam Reap, from there to Phnom Phenh, after that head to Sihanoukville. All three places have international airports. If budget is a problem you can take bus, actually that's what most of the budget travelers do in Cambodia, 4-5 hours from Siam Reap to Phnom Phenh, 6 hours from PP to Sihanoukville, bus tickets need to be booked at least 1 day prior to departure. Most of the guesthouses and hotels offer ticketing service and nearly no additional service fee charged.

Fan room with hot shower in guesthouses costs 10 USD/night, Bus tickets cost 10USD, strangely, food is more expensive than neighbouring countries when quality is at similar level.

There you go buddy :)
