Good evening. It is Yuichiro Kai who experienced internship in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
I have been visiting Cambodia when my work is off since I finished my internship. Since this month ANA made the direct flight of Narita – Phnom Penh into service, I flew to Phnom Penh by the direct flight of ANA at this time.
In this article I will report my experience.
Flight tickets can be purchased from the following ANA site.
1. Firstly select dates
I could purchase a ticket at around 600 USD including a service charge of 50 USD.
When I arrived at the airport, I issued an automatic check-in and issue a ticket.
Tickets can be issued by reading the reservation number or two-dimensional barcode* and reading the passport.
*It is necessary to carry out WEB check-in in advance
A seal was printed for the baggage so I put it on my luggage and deposited it with a counter.
After departure inspection, I exchanged the necessary dollar for visa acquisition after arrival at the airport,
Boarding starts at 25:00 for departure at 10:50.
Before takeoff, it is possible to monitor operation and you can watch movies and programs.
For the new campaign, there are three programs named after Cambodia.
“We can not change the world,” “Tomb Raider”, “I am sorry for the private lancer of Higashino and Okamura … – Journey in Cambodia -”
Water and snacks are offered one hour after boarding, and you can order freely from the following drink menu after an hour and a half.
*refreshing drinks and snacks
Offer meals in two hours. Below, you can choose from 2 types of Waza.
All other options are free.
When I spend my time freely watching movies and listening to music, I arrived in Phnom Penh in 6 hours 20 minutes. (10:50 to 17:10)
I get off the plane and take a small bus to the terminal.
If you are going to Cambodia so far, you need to make connections such as Bangkok, Thailand, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
In case of via Bangkok, it takes 7 hours 15 minutes by Haneda ~ Bangkok, it takes 5 hours 30 minutes by Haneda ~ Ho Chi Minh, and it takes 2 hours by Haneda ~ Ho Chi Minh to transfer and preparing for connecting, then another 1 hour by airplane to Cambodia from there It took a total of 8 to 10 hours to do so.
Especially Bangkok airport is quite wide, it is quite physical difficulty to move after arrival.
Considering the trouble and time, the direct flight is considerably convenient and recommended.
*For business purposes, arrive at Phnom Penh at 15:10 and arrive late in the late afternoon
After arrival, we need to prepare a photograph and 30 dollars to get sightseeing VISA.
There is an ATM near the VISA counter, so if you have a PLUS compatible cash card you can withdraw it on the spot.
