Itinerary help needed!!!

Planning on going to Cambodia for 2 weeks in August 2013. Any ideas for itinerary? Siem Reap is a definite, and will probably have a couple of days in Battambang. Other than that, not sure if it's best to fly to Siem Reap direct, or fly to PP and have couple of days there first. Are the beach resorts worth travelling to for a few days of hassle-free chilling out? And if so, what's the best way to get to them? Can you travel to them from Battambang direct or would I have to back to Siem Reap? Or is it easier to go from PP? Any ideas for the best route gratefully received :)

You would be well rewarded by reading various postings on this forum for a short while and especially peoples Trip Reports or JBR's as seems to be current fancy name for them these days.

two sites you should check out are www.canbypublications.com and www.travelfish.org

As a newbie you may also have missed all the exellent info in the top questions (upper right) and the 'things to do' and 'travel guide' links on the left.

Ian has already mentioned searching for trip reports (JBRs) but you can also use this search box for additional info - just use phrases like you would for a google search.

and finally, youtube has a heap of videos to wet your appetite

Hi diveannie - You may want to route a trip Phnom Penh, Kep/Kampot, back to PP for a night, then to BB and finally over to SR. You could also do this in reverse. BB to the coast is one very, very long day. thmoore and Ian have given your good resources for finding a lot of information. Kep is more on the beach, albeit a rough one, while Kampot is along a river. Flights are possible from Siem Reap to Sihanoukville however, so you may want to look for information about that (there were several threads here not too long ago about the area and flights there). Happy planning.
