Vietnam and Cambodia Tour Information

1. When is the Best Time to Visit Vietnam and Cambodia together?

While they can be visited throughout the year, the best time to visit Vietnam and Cambodia together is normally from November to April, when the weather is at its driest for the year.

Vietnam does have a changeable climate from north to south, and there are times when it is best to visit certain areas outside the main period.

But overall, these two countries in Indochina share a relatively similar climate, with a rainy season in the middle of the year, and the cooler dry season from November to April.

However, you may want to avoid traveling in late April, as this is normally when the weather is hottest in Cambodia and some parts of central and southern Vietnam.

Some parts of northern Vietnam can be quite cold in December and January, as they are in a different climate zone. But the cold is not as bad as many European countries in winter, so it is mostly comfortable.

2. How many days are most recommended for visiting Vietnam and Cambodia together?

Ideally, you should plan to spend as much time as possible in these amazing countries in Indochina, but for those with limited time for travel, we recommend you spend at least 10-14 days traveling through Vietnam and Cambodia.

Vietnam is a long narrow country, and the main tourist hotspots are well worth spending the time in. The best spots to spend time in include Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hue, Nha Trang, and Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), and you should plan to spend at least 6-8 days, including the travel times between cities.

For Cambodia, the main places to visit include Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Angkor Archaeological Park, and Tonle Sap Lake.

The remaining 4-6 days can be spent traveling from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap, and exploring the other sites along the way. This is a trip that can be done in a long loop, starting in northern Vietnam, and heading south and west to HCMC, before crossing the border into Phnom Penh and heading north to Siem Reap. 

3. How to Travel between Vietnam and Cambodia?

Travel between Vietnam and Cambodia can be easy or harder, depending on which direction you are traveling in. Travel from Vietnam to Cambodia is easier than Cambodia to Vietnam, due to the visa requirements of each destination.

Getting from Vietnam to Cambodia is simple, and you can opt to fly from Vietnam to Cambodia or travel overland, or even by boat. Flights from Vietnam to Cambodia run from HCMC and Hanoi to Phnom Penh for between 60 and 180 US dollars. Flights also run to Siem Reap from HCMC, Hanoi, Da Nang, Nha Trang, and Phu Quoc for as little as 128 dollars. You can also travel overland through any of several land border checkpoints, including Moc Bai, Tinh Bien, Xa Xia, O Yadao, and the river crossing at Ving Xuong.

The reverse trip is just as simple. Flights run from Phnom Penh to HCMC and Hanoi, which cost from around 60-180 US dollars per person. Flights from Siem Reap also run to the same airports in Vietnam that have flights to Cambodia, though prices are more expensive in reverse. The same overland border checkpoints can be used to travel to Vietnam, including from Bavet, Phnom Den, Prek Chak, Le Thanh, and Kaam Samnor.

4. How to get a Vietnam visa and a Cambodia visa?

Getting a visa for Vietnam is complicated, as they do not have the normal Visa on Arrival system. You can apply for the visa in advance at an embassy, which requires three days for processing.

Alternatively, you can make an online application for a visa on arrival, which gives you a pre-approved visa that will be stamped into your passport when you arrive at the airport. You can also apply for an E-visa for nationals of certain countries, which is a .pdf file you can print and use instead of applying elsewhere. No visa is stamped into your passport.

For Cambodia, you can apply at an embassy, which takes around 5 working days, though there are few Cambodian embassies around the world.

The alternative is the Visa on Arrival, which can be applied for at all airports and land border checkpoints around the country.

Just fill up the application form when you arrive, give them your photo and passport, and pay the fee. Processing generally only takes an hour. You can also get an E-visa online, though you will need to have either a VISA or MasterCard credit card, which are the only payment options.

5. What currency is used in Vietnam and Cambodia?

In Vietnam, the currency is the Dong, which only comes in bills. There are no accepted coins in Vietnam now. Vietnam has plenty of ATMs to get your money from, as well as money changers and banks, though ATMs are usually much more costly in exchange rates and fees. The Dong works out to an average of around 20,000 to the dollar, so you will need to understand the high figures of hundreds of thousands of dong that you will be working with.

While the Riel is the official currency of Cambodia, you can also use dollars pretty much anywhere in the country. The two currencies are often used interchangeably, and you can pay in dollars and get your change in Riel. Dollars are generally used to pay for more expensive items and hotel bills, while the riel is generally used for smaller purchases, fares, etc.
