Sihanoukville, Cambodia, March 2016. So, what does a 4 week budget minded trip to Sihanoukville actually cost? The term ‘budget’ will of course differ in meaning among the budget travelling fraternity, but for me budget means – paying the least I can get away with while avoiding hostels!
So, here it is. A breakdown of the costs:
Bus ticket from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville = $12 = £8.57
Accommodation 29 nights basic room, double bed = $100 = £71.42 = £2.46 per night
Food including drink averaging $10 = £7.14 per day for 30 days
Day trip to Koh Ta Kiev including lunch and the $2 ride back to base $17 = £12.14
Day trip to Kampot, bus ticket $10, coffee x 2= $3.50 and transport back to base $2 = $15.50 = £11.07
Bus ticket Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh $6 = £4.28
Total = £252.72 or £8.71 per night. If you need alcohol and cigarettes add a bit more. If your a duo then take a bit off the accommodation price. If you want to rent a scooter add some more. Personally I don’t eat heavy and I drink light which helps me to keep on budget and I didn’t need a scooter because I borrowed a cycle!
