Anyone did this? We want to make a trip from Bangkok to Siem Reap to visit Angkor Vat and all interesting places between.

Any experiences?

Hi Steve,
 I would suggest that you go to Battambang,you go to the Thai border crossing at Aranya Prathet to Poipet on the
Cambodian side,its only about a two to three hours bus ride.Battambang is a great place to see rural Cambodia.You
will need two or three days to see everything.I traveled around with a Motto for two days. When you are finished in
Battambang take a slow tourist boat to Siam Reap,it should take about six hours. The scenery along the Sangker River
 is spectacular,mangroves,floating villages etc. The river empties into the Tonle Sap Lake.You should travel when there's
 enough water in the river & on a boat where you can walk about on the roof for clear shooting.When you dock the
Motto's will be waiting to take you to Siam Reap.
                  Khunklit.

Khunkit -

Sounds great. Are you familiar with a route that will allow me to drive my own vehicle there? On this visit I'll be taking a lot of equipment and carrying it by plane is becoming a real hassle, not to mention this being a high risk area.

Thanks!

From Poipet its a 48km drive to Sisophon,from Sisophon its National Route 5 to Battambang,the road is sealed & in
good condition.You should find out if there are any problems driving a Thai registered vehicle in Cambodia. The
Prek Toal bird sanctuary on the Tonle Sap Lake is also not far from Battambang,this might be of interest to you.

Thank you! I already have my cars "passport" which is a required document you can get at the land transportation office after showing ownership and insurance. Should be fine there. I hope to make this trip early next year. As the time draws near I hope you don't mind me asking you some questions.
