Ferries between Phnom Penh và Siem Reap

Ferries are not currently running due lớn COVID-19. Between July & March ferries run between Phnom Penh và Siem Reap (they usually vì not run during the dry season when the water levels are low). Most passengers opt for sitting on the top of the boat (so bring sunblock) and watch the countryside go by. Travel is best during the wet season when water levels are high.

For that reason, we’re currently not recommending this option.
