Boat Siem Reap to PP

We will fly into Bangkok in early June and take bus or fly to Siem Reap and would like to take the boat to PP. Most of the people on here tell about a boat PP to Siem Reap. Can you go either way -- or do tides or water ways prevent going from SR to PP? We plan to go from PP to Saigon and then by train up toward Hanoi. Is it difficult to get from PP to SAigon overland? How do you do it? Train, Bus? Thanks for any information or help with this trip.

You would be better to travel from SR to PP by plane or bus or private car. Once in PP you can easily travel to Chau Doc (just over the Vietnamese border) by boat. Once in Vietnam you can either travel directly to HCMC or spend a few days touring the Mekong Delta region on your way to HCMC.

We did this trip in March travelling by private car from SP to PP cost about $65 and took 4 to 5 hours. The bus takes a little bit longer (5 to 6 hours) and costs about $10 to $12 I think.

We used the Blue Cruiser to go to Chau Doc. The trip is about 4 to 5 hours and is very pleasant. You need to book ahead. We spent the next 3 days touring the Delta area with our own driver ending up in HCMC.

There are many posts discussing these options.
