Cambodia flights - cheap international flight tickets and hacker fares to Phnom Penh and Siem Reap

Cambodia is open to international tourism

Cambodia reopened its borders to international tourism in November 2021. Currently, there are no requirements in place (such as health testing or quarantine) for all travelers entering the country, regardless of their vaccination status. All land borders between Cambodia and Vietnam, Thailand and Laos are now open.

The tourist visa program has been resumed: visa can either be obtained online in advance or on arrival.

International transit at Cambodian airports is currently not permitted. You should contact your airline for further information.

Arriving in Cambodia

  • If you are flying to Cambodia from abroad, you will most likely land at one of its biggest international airportsits main international airportPhnom Penh International Airport PNH in Phnom Penh (the gateway to the capital), Siem Reap International Airport REP in Siem Reap (the best choice for visiting the temples of Angkor Wat), and Sihanouk International Airport KOS in Sihanoukville (a convenient option when visiting Cambodia’s seaside and southern islands).

    These are also the best (and the cheapest) airports to fly into Cambodia. As they are used by many airlines serving the same routes, the competition for passengers is fierce – with decreased airfare as a result.


  • Once in Cambodia, take advantage of frequent flights between the major cities via domestic airlines such as Cambodia Angkor Air, Sky Angkor Airlines, JC International Airlines, Lanmei Airlines, Bassaka Air, Cambodia Airways. To check flight schedules/prices and to book the tickets, visit their official websites — OTAs and flight search engines often don’t have access to the flight repository of smaller local airlines. They also often fail to update prices in the event of short-lived sales and promotions that airlines run from time to time. To not miss out on these great offers, visit Promo Radar which aggregates current promotions run by popular airlines.
  • Planning to explore the region? Popular destinations near Cambodia can be easily reached with low-cost regional airlines (LCCs) by the likes of AirAsia, Bangkok Airways, FlexFlight, JC International Airlines, Jetstar Airways, Shenzhen Airlines, SilkAir, Spring Airlines, ThaiSmile, VieJet Air, and Xiamen Air.

    These budget carriers offer flights from Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and Sihanouk at lower prices than full-service airlines, and they often fly to smaller airports that big players do not cover. However, the “no-frills” airlines may not provide free checked baggage allowance, complimentary food, in-flight entertainment systems, and fast customer support; you may not even get to choose your seats (unless you pay extra). With that in mind, they are a great option to save money if you have a stopover in Cambodia and then fly only a short distance to one of its neighboring countries.
Best airports to fly into Cambodia: Phnom Penh International Airport (PNH), Siem Reap International Airport (REP), Sihanouk International Airport (KOS), Dara Sakor International Airport (DSY), Ratanakiri Airport (RBE), and Kampong Cham Airport (KCA)
Airports of Cambodia on Google Maps Cambodia has 3 major airports operating domestic and international commercial flights – Phnom Penh International Airport PNH in Phnom Penh (the gateway to the capital), Siem Reap International Airport REP in Siem Reap (the best choice for visiting the temples of Angkor Wat), and Sihanouk International Airport KOS in Sihanoukville (a convenient option when visiting Cambodia’s seaside and southern islands).

Cambodia has also a number of provincial or regional airports, some used commercially for domestic flights, some only for occasional chartered light wing aircraft: Dara Sakor International Airport DSY, Ratanakiri Airport RBE, Kampong Cham Airport KCA, Kampot Airport KMT, Kratié Airport KTI, Mondulkiri Airport MWV, and Thbeng Meanchey Airport OMY.

The Kingdom plans to expand its airport network to help increase the international and domestic tourism industry. New airports being built in Cambodia include new Phnom Penh International Airport in Kandal, Dara Sakor International Airport and Koh Kong Airport in Koh Kong province, Siem Reap Angkor International Airport in Siem Reap, and Mondulkiri Airport in Mondulkiri province.

Transport from the airport

There are a few options to get from Phnom Penh airport to the city center. A train ($2.50) will take you there in 30 minutes. Add another 30 minutes for the heavy traffic if you choose a shuttle bus ($5), public bus ($0.50), or taxi ($14). Tuk-tuk, the most common mode of transport in Cambodia (and a great way to experience an authentic way of traveling) will cost you around $6-$8 (try to haggle!) and will take you to the city center in less than an hour.

Get e-visa online

Every international traveler that visits Cambodia needs a visa. While you can get a visa on arrival, purchasing an e-visa online (extra $6 processing fee) will save you time standing in line at customs/immigration. It takes 5 minutes to go through online forms – your visa will be approved immediately and will land in your email inbox in another 5 minutes. Print out 2 copies (one to enter Cambodia and one to exit) and you’re ready to go. Interestingly, passengers arriving in Cambodia with e-visas don’t need to fill in arrival or departure cards.

Know your time zone

When checking flights and airport transfer times, ensure you know the local time zones. The departure/arrival times on your plane ticket and boarding pass are based on the time zone of the departure/arrival airport – this also applies to the connecting (layover) airports.

Cambodia has only one time zone – it observes Indochina Time all year, which is UTC/GMT +7. There are no daylight saving time clock changes.

Cambodia is 11 hours ahead of New York, and 4 hours behind Sydney. It shares the same time with Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos.

The cheapest time to fly to Cambodia

The best time to find cheap flights to Cambodia tends to be during the low season – May to September. It’s the country’s wet season and also off-peak tourism season with significantly fewer visitors. Everything – including airline tickets – is then cheaper.

Avoid the peak season – December to March, and local holidays. Cheap flights to Cambodia are non-existent during popular holidays such as Khmer New Year (26 January), Anzac Day (13/14 April), Pchum Ben (September to mid-October), Water Festival (November), and the Royal Ploughing Ceremony (May). If you have to travel to Cambodia during these peak periods it’s wise to book the flights well in advance.

Flights to Cambodia fromUnited States and Canada

  • There are no direct flights from the US or Canada to Cambodia. However, most major hubs in Asia have non-stop flights to Cambodia, as do some larger airports in the Middle East – your journey will have at least one stop.
  • Cambodia is well-served via one-stop flights from North America. Flights to Cambodia with one layover depart from most major North American airports, including Atlanta ATL, Dallas DFW, Denver DEN, Chicago ORD, Los Angeles LAX, Las Vegas DFW, Miami MIA, Seattle SEA, Houston IAH, New York JFK, and San Francisco SFO in the United States and Toronto YYZ, Vancouver YVR, Calgary LAS, and Montreal YUL in Canada.
  • The best airlines to fly to Cambodia from the US and Canada are: Asiana Airlines, Cathay Pacific, China Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Emirates, EVA Air, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, and United Airlines. They are top full-service carriers, offering exceptional customer service, in-flight comfort, a generous checked baggage allowance, and reliable customer support channels – all included in the ticket price.
  • For long-haul flights, the type of aircraft you choose can make a huge difference to your overall comfort on board – especially if you’re flying economy. The best aircraft have comfier seats with more legroom, WiFi, superior entertainment systems, and a better passenger experience in every cabin in general. When booking a flight to Cambodia, look for the airlines that use wide-body planes designed for long-haul flights, such as Airbus A350 (best choice), A380, A320neo, or Boeing 767, 777, and 787 Dreamliner.

Use Grab or PassApp to get around town

Uber is no longer available in Cambodia – it ceased business in 2018 and has been replaced by its Asian alternative – Grab.

Grab is the most popular rideshare app in the region, operating in many countries throughout Southeast Asia. It’s a good way for a cross-city journey: the cars are safe, secure, and usually air-conditioned. Similarly to Uber, it has fixed distance-based fees, so drivers can’t overcharge you for journeys. If you don’t have the Grab app yet, download it for your Cambodian vacation and set up your account, payment options, etc, before arriving.

In case you’re having a hard time booking a ride with Grab, there is a local alternative PassApp. The PassApp ride-sharing app on most occasions will be even cheaper than Grab.

Avoid currency exchange kiosks at airports

It is always a good idea to bring some cash with you to Cambodia. Even though the US dollar is still the unofficial second currency, that is starting to change and the Cambodian riel is becoming more widely used.

Airports are infamous for making an exuberant amount of money from their currency exchanges due to the extremely high margins, and Cambodian airports are no exception. Airport kiosks usually charge higher fees which are sometimes hidden within the poorer exchange rates they offer – their business is based on charging extra for being a convenient, last-minute option.

Plan ahead and exchange some money for the Cambodian riel at home, or use one of the many ATMs located at the airport or in Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville, Siem Reap, and some other major towns. ATM machines in Cambodia dispense US dollars and Cambodian riel, however, if you are using a foreign card, you will only be able to withdraw dollars.

Long waiting times when calling the helpline?

Social media is usually a faster way to reach the airline when a problem arises. Use Twitter or Facebook Messenger to contact the airline customer service and get a response and solution within minutes (see detailed guides for Singapore Airlines, Jetstar Airways, Emirates, and others).

When it comes to Twitter there’s one more trick to get in touch with the airline faster: mention the airline in a tweet about your issue (add “@airline_handle”, for example: “@AngkorAirK6” for Cambodia Angkor Air). The social media team will often notice it immediately, ask you for a direct message, and respond privately.

Book a seat in a quiet zone

Some airlines (for example AirAsia X) start to offer child-free “quiet zones” for a peaceful flight experience. Children below 10 years old are not allowed in this section. Those seats are usually located in front of the plane (bonus: less noise from the engines) with soft ambient lighting and early meal service.

Flights to Cambodia with stopover

Direct flights to Cambodia are, of course, much less hassle than flights that require one or more connections. However, they tend to be more expensive. In a trade-off between convenience and cost, the best option is often to opt for a flight with one layover.

So if you’re looking at a long-haul trip with at least one connection, rather than simply transiting an airport, why not take this opportunity to plan a longer stopover? A stopover is a prolonged layover — more than 24 hours — and it won’t only break up your long journey but will also become a legitimate part of your vacation. If you’re prone to severe jet lag, a one or two-day stopover would help minimize its adverse effects.

When booking flights, many airlines allow you to include a free stopover en route to your final destination in Cambodia. Those flights are usually cheaper than non-stop (direct) flights, and you can often choose your stopover at no additional cost — just by looking for multi-city flights with longer layovers.

Big cities in Asia and Pacific are known for their rich culture and history — making them a great idea for a stopover during a longer journey. Here are a few suggestions for a stopover while en route to Cambodia.

Some airlines openly advertise stopovers and offer significant discounts and travel perks for passengers to break up their trips: free luxury hotel stays, complimentary domestic flights, or exclusive rates for activities. Start checking for stopover deals to Cambodia with government-owned airlines (as they are looking to attract tourists to give the country economic benefits) — such as Emirates, Etihad, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, and Malaysia Airlines. Almost every airline’s website has multi-city search functionality, often hidden inside the one-way/return/multi-city switch.

A well-chosen stopover will not only turn one vacation into many but also save you several hundred dollars in airfare. The available stopovers to Cambodia will depend on your initial destination (Europe, North America, Asia, etc) and the airline you are flying with. For most airlines, the best free stopover offer will be at their main hub.

Flights to Cambodia from UK, Germany, France, Netherlands and other countries in Europe

  • There are no direct flights from Europe to Cambodia — you’ll need to get a connecting flight from elsewhere in the Middle East or in Asia.
  • Airlines that frequently fly from the UK, Germany, France, and other European countries to Cambodia include Asiana Airlines, Austrian Airlines, Cathay Pacific, China Airlines, Emirates, EVA Air, KLM, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, SWISS, and Turkish Airlines.
  • Consider departure airports in neighboring countries to increase your chance of spotting the best deal. Especially look for large airports that serve as hubs for multiple airlines. For example, if you live in Western Europe, check air tickets to Cambodia from Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Paris, and Rome. Use European low-cost airlines such as RyanAir, EasyJet, and Eurowings to fly to the hub, then save hundreds of euros by taking a cheaper long-haul flight to your final destination.

    We recommend checking prices for flights to Cambodia from these European airport hubs: London LHR and Manchester MAN in the United Kingdom, Frankfurt FRA and Munich MUC in Germany, Paris CDG and Nice NCE in France, Amsterdam AMS in the Netherlands, Madrid MAD and Barcelona BCN in Spain, Rome FCO and Milano MXP in Italy, Brussels BRU in Belgium, Copenhagen OSL in Denmark, Oslo OSL in Norway, Stockholm ARN in Sweden, Zurich ZRH in Switzerland, Lisbon LIS in Portugal, Vienna VIE in Austria, Warsaw WAW in Poland, Prague PRG in Czech Republic, and Dublin DUB in Ireland.

Check different departure airports

Consider neighboring cities when choosing the departure airport – especially look for larger cities with airports that serve as hubs for multiple airlines.

For example, if you live in West Europe, check prices for flights departing from Paris, London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Rome, or Vienna. In 9 out of 10 cases, the cheapest flight to Cambodia will depart from one of these hubs, and it may be €500 less or more than your first choice. Yes, you may have to fly a few hundred kilometers to this hub, but low-cost airlines like EasyJet, RyanAir, or WizzAir will happily take you there for €50 – €100.

Use a similar tactic if you depart from the US or another region. It’s one of the best ways to save hundreds on trips.

Last-minute flights to Cambodia. The real cost of convenience.

Last-minute flights are often touted as a great way to save money, but the reality is far from it. Booking last-minute flights to Cambodia almost always never works out. The convenience of being able to book a flight on the fly is a dangerous game of chance, and you will most likely end up paying significantly higher than booking in advance.

The common perception may be that airlines decrease ticket prices to fill empty seats as the departure date approaches. However, the truth is that airfares depend on demand. Based on years of research and current customer data, the airlines know what people are willing to pay for specific flights and dates. They are also well aware that people are willing to pay a premium for flights they need to take immediately. To make the most money, the airline will sell its cheapest fares first and then increase the prices right before the flight to take advantage of business travelers and others who are willing to pay the premium price for late booking.

Last-minute flight cost spike
Late booking penalty: The flight prices rise as departure draws near. Last-minute flights are almost always more expensive than booking in advance.

Occasionally, airlines can put some seats on sale to fill the remaining seats, but these are for unusual times and unpopular places. Popular destinations and dates around peak travel times tend to sell out quickly.

Planning ahead is key to securing a good deal on your flight. Last-minute flight deals are hard to come by, so as soon as you have a tentative travel timeline, book your flight. The earlier you book, the more likely you are to save money. If you are looking for a good deal, the best time to book your flight to Cambodia is around 60-90 days before the departure date.

“Hot seats” on long-haul flights

Those days seat selection is considered an optional, extra paid service – seats with extra legroom (front and exit rows) are usually priced higher. However, if you’re about to take a long-haul flight to Cambodia, those “hot seats” are worth considering – expect to pay $50-$100, which is much less than upgrading to Premium Economy.

If you want to choose your seats, do this early (ideally during the booking) for a more extensive selection of available options.

Booking hot seats (preffered seats with extra legroom) on plane
Choosing a hot seat during the flight booking process is usually worth it. For a reasonable price, you will get more room to stretch your legs, as well as a wider seat pitch.

Lost baggage prevention

Avoid lost luggage nightmares by removing old tags on your suitcases. Tags are printed with a barcode for identification and tracking, so the old tags can confuse baggage handlers and the conveyor belt scanners. They are one of the reasons so many bags miss their flight or get misrouted.

Airlines of Cambodia

Cambodia has two full-service carriers: Cambodia Angkor Air (the national flag carrier) and Cambodia Airways, both based at Phnom Penh International Airport. Together, they handle most of the international air traffic to and from Cambodia, serving nearby countries such as China, Hong Kong, Laos, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Most short-haul domestic routes in Cambodia are operated by its smaller airlines such as Sky Angkor Airlines, JC International Airlines, Lanmei Airlines, and Bassaka Air. These budget carriers (AKA no-frills airlines) offer flights at lower prices in comparison to two major Cambodian full-service airlines. However, because they manage affordable tickets by cutting down on their operation costs, they may not provide free baggage allowance, inflight refreshments, meals, or onboard entertainment. In most cases, their tickets are fixed and non-refundable in case of no show-up or cancellation.

Flights to Cambodia from Australia and New Zealand

  • Australia and New Zealand are well-connected with popular Asian destinations, including Cambodia. In addition to domestic airlines – Qantas, Jetstar Airways, Virgin Australia, and Air New Zealand – routes from Australia/New Zealand to Asia are operated by large regional carriers such as ANA, Emirates, Etihad, Fiji Airways, Japan Airlines, Qatar Airways, and Singapore Airlines.

    Direct flights and flights with one layover to Cambodia are available from all major airports in Australia – Sydney SYD, Brisbane BNE, Melbourne MEL, Perth PER, Adelaide ADL, Cairns CNS, Gold Coast OOL, Canberra CBR, and in New Zealand – Auckland AKL, Wellington WLG, Christchurch CHC, Queenstown ZQN, Dunedin DUD.
  • In terms of cost-savings, we recommend flying from Australia and New Zealand to a major Asian hub and then booking a flight to your final destination in Cambodia with a regional budget airline. Among the low-cost airlines that fly into Cambodia are AirAsia, Bangkok Airways, FlexFlight, JC International Airlines, Jetstar Airways, Shenzhen Airlines, SilkAir, Spring Airlines, ThaiSmile, VieJet Air, and Xiamen Air.

    Currently, there are no direct flights from Australia or New Zealand to Cambodia. You’ll need a layover in one of the major hubs in Asia.

“Book Flights Now, Pay Later” — is it worth it?

Booking a flight and paying for it later has recently become a popular trend in the travel industry, with many airlines offering delayed payment plans. They will allow you to make flight reservation to Cambodia now and then pay the bill in installments. But should you take advantage?

Book Now Pay Later (BNPL) plans are essentially short-term personal loans. By partnering with financial companies such as Affirm, Afterpay, PayPal Credit, Postpay, and Uplift, airlines can offer their loan services on the checkout page. When you book the flight with the BNPL option, the company pays the airline, and you repay the loan in installments over a set period (usually up to 24 months), with a set interest rate.

BNPL providers have varying terms and fees. Some may offer interest-free loans but have fees for late payments and require forced autoplay on your bank account, while others may have high annual percentage rates (up to 30-40% APR). There may also be transaction fees, down payment requirements, and many companies even run a credit check on the traveler.

Among the airlines that offer a “fly now, pay later” option are American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Emirates, Qatar Airways, Qantas, Turkish Airlines, United Airlines, Alaska Airlines, British Airways, KLM, Lufthansa, Southwest, and Virgin Atlantic.

Is BNPL financing worth it? If paid off on time, interest-free delayed payment on your flight ticket to Cambodia can be a great way to free up your cash flow. However, there may be safer alternatives available – such as taking advantage of an introductory 0% interest offer on a credit card or using flight price “freezing” services like Hopper.

Hidden-city ticketing hack

Hidden-city ticketing is a less-known money-saving tactic where you buy a plane ticket with a layover, with the intention to get off at the layover rather than the final destination. For example, a flight from New York to Tokyo might be $600, but a similar flight from New York to Singapore with a layover in Tokyo might be only $350. Choosing the latter and ending the trip in Tokyo would save you $250.

It seems counterintuitive that a fare from A to C via B could possibly be cheaper than a simple fare on a shorter route from A to B. However, airlines use dynamic, computer-driven price models calculated with little human intervention, and such deals happen quite often.

Hidden-city ticketing flight hack
An example of a hidden-city ticketing flight hack. The layover city is actually our final destination (source: Skiplagged).

Booking a hidden city ticket isn’t as easy as booking a standard itinerary. There are some things to be aware of: (1) don’t check baggage — bring only hand luggage that can fit under the seat or an overhead compartment; a large checked bag will end up in the final destination C; (2) don’t use it for return flights — airlines often void any subsequent tickets if any segment of the first ticket is missed; (3) Do not overuse this tactic with the same airline — hidden-city ticketing is legal but airlines don’t like it and may try to punish you; (4) Don’t associate your frequent flyer account — the airline might invalidate any miles you’ve accrued with them.

How to find hidden-city tickets? The easiest way is to use Skiplagged website, which was designed for unearthing hidden-city deals — give them a try for your flight to Cambodia.

Get cheaper business class by bidding on airline upgrades

A growing number of airlines are auctioning upgrades to their business class seats. Once you book your economy ticket to Cambodia, you can offer to pay a bit more in an attempt to get a premium seat. 2-3 days before your flight, an airline will send you an email with a link to their website where you can place a “blind” bid. There’s usually a minimum bid amount. If you win the auction, you’ll be informed, and your seat will be upgraded.

How to choose the right bid amount? Just check the airline website for the regular cost of a business class seat to Cambodia, then subtract what you paid for the economy fare. Place your bid for around 10% to 30% of that price. The alternative strategy is to bid slightly above the competition. If, for example, the minimum bid is $500, try to bid $550-$600, as most people will offer the baseline amount required.

The more available business class seats the airline has on your flight, the lower bid can be successfully used. Check the airline’s daily schedule for flights to Cambodia – if there is more than one flight on your chosen route (more available seats), you can safely bid close to the minimum required amount.

Among the airlines that allow bidding for seat upgrades are: Air Canada (AC Bid), Air New Zealand (OneUp™), Cathay Pacific, Etihad Airways, Fiji Airways (Bula Bid), Garuda Indonesia (BidUpgrade), Qantas, Singapore Airlines, SriLankan Airlines, and Virgin Australia (UpgradeMe).

Cheaper business class seat: online bidding
Etihad Airways auctions off upgrades to Business Class as a way to sell otherwise unused seats at the front of the plane

Fly early in the morning

Early morning flights (6 am or earlier) are usually cheaper than other day schedules. It’s because of lower demand – most people are not willing to go to the airport so early. Use it to your advantage.

Moreover, airports are also less crowded, and there tend to be fewer delays if you fly early in the morning. Due to increasing air traffic, delays get worse throughout the day – starting around 8-10 am and reaching a peak at 4-6 pm. If you are flying to Cambodia with a connecting flight, arriving on time at your layover airport may be critical to catching your next flight!

Flights to Cambodia from Bali, Bangkok, Delhi, Dubai, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Singapore, Seoul, Tokyo, and other major hubs in Asia

  • Asia is probably the best continent for short-haul and mid-haul flying. The sheer scale of this most populous region on Earth is reflected in the type of aircraft operating many shorter routes: intra-Asia flyers benefit from comfortable, wide-bodied aircraft by the likes of Boeing 777, 787 or Airbus A350, A330, and A380. When booking your flight to Cambodia look for these bigger planes as they will almost always give you the best experience in every cabin, including better seat pitches, higher ceilings, and larger overhead bin space.
  • Asia is also home to most of the world’s best airlines. There are only ten airlines that received the prestigious 5-star mark of quality from Skytrax, and all of them are from Asia: ANA, Asiana Airlines, Cathay Pacific, EVA Air, Garuda Indonesia, Japan Airlines, Korean Air, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines. Choosing one of these airlines for your trip to Cambodia will guarantee a pleasant journey – delicious meals served during the flight, great in-flight entertainment, and above-average airline customer service.
  • Asia is extremely well served by low-cost regional airlines. If you are visiting Cambodia and want to see several other countries on a tight budget, they often have great sales with rock-bottom prices, while still offering a relatively comfortable flight experience. Among the best Asian budget airlines you can book without hesitation are AirAsiaCebu Pacific, Citilink, FlyDubai, Indigo, Jetstar Airways, Scoot, SpiceJet, and VietJet Air. The cons? Being no-frills airlines they may not provide free baggage allowance, inflight meals, or onboard entertainment. The departure times may also be quite inconvenient as they try to save money by flying at off-peak hours.

Take advantage of loyalty programs

Choose an airline that suits you the best, then stick to it. By becoming a ‘regular’, you will be able to use its loyalty program and earn “miles” (or points) – not only for flying but also for everyday expenses (if your card is affiliated with an airline).

Points earned this way often add up over time and are extremely helpful in flying at reduced fares. Airlines offer not only ticket discounts for their frequent flyers, but also special travel perks such as cabin class upgrades, increased checked baggage allowance, or access to their airport lounges so you can relax during long layovers.

If you often fly with Emirates, opt for Skywards, with Qantas – for Qantas Frequent Flyer, with Singapore Airlines – for KrisFlyer, etc.

Proof of onward travel – a simple hack

Travelers who go on long trips often don’t have a set itinerary and fly on one-way tickets. The problem? For many APAC countries, proof of onward travel is a legal requirement. If you arrive at the airport without an onward ticket (from Cambodia to another country), you’ll either be forced to buy one online or forbidden from boarding the plane altogether.

The cheapest solution? Renting an onward ticket! Use the websites such as OneWayFly or OnwardTicket to get a flight reservation for a limited amount of time (usually 2 to 14 days). They work by actually booking you on a real flight out of Cambodia and giving you a confirmable flight reservation with a PNR (Passenger Name Record) under your name. After the time limit, your spot on the flight is automatically canceled. Such “temporary tickets” tend to cost anywhere from $10 to $20.

Dealing with the jet lag

Jet lag affects people differently depending on age, physical fitness, and genetics. The most accepted rule suggests that you should allow one full day to recover from jet lag for every time zone (hour gained) you traveled east and a number of days equal to half the time zones crossed when you traveled west.

The most effective natural jet lag remedy is to force your body into its new routine. You can begin before getting off the plane: set your watch to the time in Cambodia, then do your best to sleep and eat based on the new time zone. Close the window shade when it’s time to simulate darkness. During your first day on the ground in Cambodia, get outdoors, stay physically active during the day, and absorb sunlight.
