ANA JFK/ORD/LAX/SFO to Phnom Penh $427 Sep 12–May 27

There is a very low fare at $427 round trip from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York to Phnom Penh spreading over the blogosphere, so I decided to post a reality check here. Every itinerary I have seen requires an overnight in Tokyo outbound, inbound or both, some itineraries require a Tokyo change of airport and most also have a long 10 hour+ layover on the return.

Still, a great deal at $427 round trip, especially if you view a day or two in Tokyo as a bonus feature of this low fare deal, rather than an added hotel expense to the low fare deal.

Note: While Google Flights shows $427 from each city, I am finding it hard to locate $427 fares from JFK. JFK-PNH mostly pricing in mid-$500s now.

November to February is peak tourist season for Cambodia when there is less rain and less heat than other times of the year.

  1. Thanks for the reality check! A lot of those other bloggers just post clickbait headlines to generate page views and drive their own revenue up.
