Here are the details about all the different ways to get from Bangkok to Cambodia:

By bus

  • In Siem Reap

    Before moving to Siem reap from Thailand have been associated with numerous stains on the border with a visa (visa on fake border crossings), and the need to use for moving from Poipet to Siem Reap solely for a taxi, as the bus was absent because of the actions of a taxi driver mafia. Now you can buy a complete Shuttle service from and to avoid all these troubles. Tickets are sold at tourist agencies of area of Khao San road, or they can book online. In more ways than 8-10 hours, there are 720 baht (1564.4 RUB, see the currency of Thailand and the exchange rate), it is possible to buy a little cheaper.

    Sending bus is carried out also from the area, which is very convenient because you do not have to get to the bus stations. From the hotels, passengers are not collected, therefore, from where you can catch the bus, you need to get yourself, which, however, easy to do on foot if you're staying on Khao San road. The exact address and place of departure can be seen on the map when booking online and also after booking you will receive an e-mail statement.

Yes, it is. We need a tough bargain everywhere, especially at the station. We had one day at the station to look for travel companions, but they had to go together. No longer was contacted and immediately in the path of the companions tried to find. A group taxi is cheaper than buses. ...

Hello Ira!
Honestly, you all the questions piled in a heap, I'm a little confused. Now I will answer, but if I understand correctly from your question, write again with questions, we will understand.
Six hours from Pattaya and certainly Bangkok you exactly to Angkor will not get (unless rapid taxi and advance registration e-visa to Cambodia).
If I understand correctly your question, you want to come to the temples, walk to see, and then go back. So unlikely to succeed. Harder and the scale of the temples such that you simply will not see anything. If you still want it so, all rapid, it is better to buy a tour on the place in Pattaya or Bangkok, but will be more expensive (from 10 T. R. was in 2010 for a 2-day tour, but for five it all depends on where and for how many days buy). If you want, it will certainly be cheaper, but will still have to come to Siem reap (town near Angkor), there to stay in a hotel and next day early in the morning to go to temples. To the temples from Siem Reap will also need to get to, why to hire a taxi or tuk-tuk and on foot to the temples you don't view, with the exception that one temple. The cost of the ticket (temples pass) $ 20 for one day, $ 40 for three days and $ 60 for 7 days.
I recommend you first to read this information about Siem reap (I was just out there trying to answer such questions that interest you). And right now I'm working on a training guide to Angkor, where all your questions will be answered. The material I have ready and the part that interests you, I'll be posting today and will post here the link. Introduction about Angkor already posted here. ...

As promised, added practical information on the temple complex of Angkor.
Will be continued with the description of each temple. ...

Transportation in Phnom Penh airport full pipe, so if money will allow, the easiest way from there to fly directly to Siem reap airport. If not, you can get only if you arrive early in the morning. Will have to get a taxi to the city centre, and there take a bus. The last bus from Phnom Penh to Siem reap, go somewhere in the afternoon, night buses are not met. If you fail, you will have to spend the night in Phnom Penh (though why I have to, I would now gladly spent the night there ;) ). Well, another option is by taxi, cost from $ 100 per car. If you are some people, then a taxi, in principle, profitable. And here is the information read - how to get to Siem reap. ...
