This coming April, Cebu Pacific will start offering direct flights from Manila, Philippines to Siem Reap, Cambodia. The very first flight will take off on April 19, 2012. The flights are scheduled at three flights a week. Flights will depart Manila at 7:50 PM every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday. Arrival in Siem Reap, Cambodia will be at 9:30 PM. Return flights will depart Siem Reap at 10:30 PM also on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
Siem Reap is the gateway to the famous Angkor Wat temples in Cambodia as it's only about half a dozen kilometers away from the temples. Usually, tourists and backpackers travel from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam or Bangkok, Thailand to Siem Reap just to see the famous temples. With Cebu Pacific's direct flights to Siem Reap, it's a lot easier and quicker to get to Angkor Wat.
