Much easier to get to if you're in country. You can fly there easily from HCMC or Can Tho.

You can easy take flight ticket from Ho Chi Minh city (Saigon) to Phu Quoc island. If you want to visit Cambodia before finish trip in Ho Chi Minh city. You can:

+ Book flight ticket from Ho Chi Minh city to Phnom Penh City or Siem Reap City (but it's quite expensive).

+ Book bus ticket from Ho Chi Minh city to Phnom Penh City (it's quite cheap but you will spend long time on bus

+ Enjoy Mekong Delta Tour, then take speed boat from Chau Doc city to Phnom Penh City (Hang Chau express boat possible, depart at 07:30AM, arrive at 12:00PM).

Yes, you can book Mekong delta tour which depart from Ho Chi Minh City, the speed boat will depart from Chau Doc city to Phnom Penh city at last day tour. The boat trip will free pick you up from your hotel in Chau Doc around 06h50 - 07h00 because it departs at 07h30.

There're 02 options:

1. Mekong delta tour 2 days, depart from Ho Chi Minh city, then overnight in Chau Doc town.

2. Mekong delta tour 3 days, depart from Ho Chi Minh city, then 1st night in Can Tho city, 2nd night in Chau Doc town.

Both tours are depart daily. You can book group (join) tour or private tour.
