Asian Diver (English)



Getting there: Cambodia is accessible by air, but there are no direct flights from Europe, North America, Australasi­a or South Africa; you have to get a connecting flight from somewhere within Southeast or East Asia. The main airport gateway is Phnom Penh Internatio­nal Airport. Alternativ­ely, if you are coming from neighbouri­ng countries such as Thailand, Vietnam and Laos, you can cross through its land borders by train, bus or rental/private hire cars

Getting around: The city and town transport systems in Cambodia generally involve the use of either a moto (motorcycle) taxi or a tuk-tuk. If you are looking to travel out of the city centre, consider hiring a car and driver or taking a domestic flight
