Cheap flights to Phnom Penh

Cambodia’s largest city is packed with cultural experiences. From shooting ranges to movie houses and feeding and bathing elephants, your trip to Phnom Penh will be nothing if not adventurous. Some must-sees include the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center, which houses more than 1,200 animals and run in conjunction with the Wildlife Alliance that rescues and cares for mistreated animals. If you want to play your part in helping to recuperate injured or endangered species, this is the place for you. The Royal Palace of Phnom Penh is also a beautiful landmark to take in, and while you’re on your historical tour you could drop in at Sovanno Phum or the Phnom Chisor Temple too – don’t forget your camera. Student Flights can get you to Phnom Penh on budget with a range of cheap airfares and the dedicated team can also help you prepare the best Cambodia holiday package you could hope for too.

Flights from Australia to Phnom Penh will disembark at one of 3 terminals in the Kingdom Phnom Penh International Airport (PNH). The airport is located only 10 kilometres west of the city centre and to this day still operates on only one runway. Ground transportation, in keeping with the rest of the airport, is basic. Airport taxis charge a flat rate depending on the zone of travel or essentially how far from the airport your hotel is. For a more authentic experience, try a three-wheel vehicle, a tuk-tuk. Prices will vary depending on your driver and your negotiation skills.
