Driving from Siem Reap to PP

Planning to drive from SR to PP, just wondering which side of Tonle Sap Lake is the most scenic / interesting? I realise the southern route is much longer but we have plenty time and will be visiting Battambang anyway at some point, either on this drive or a day trip from SR if we decide to do the north road. Thanks.

If by 'drive' you mean hire a car and drive yourself ... not going to happen - you cannot legally drive in Cambodia without a Cambodian licence (they do not recognise international drivers permits either) You can hire a car AND driver.

Battambang is not really a day trip (from SR) - and it deserves much more than a couple of hours.

Hi helen, yes I mean with driver, and thanks for your input on Battambang. As far as route goes, north of lake or south? Tx

I have done the South {Route 5} about 10 times and the North {Route 6} about a hundred.I would do #6 road.
