- To sit as comfortably as possible and try to sleep during the flight
- Take time on the first day to avoid excessive fatigue
- Sleep as much as possible the first night in Cambodia even though it is not very obvious and tracing your meal times and sleep on those in Cambodia.
- Avoid siestas during the day, not to consume too much alcohol or coffee the first few days
- To drink upon arrival at least one to two liters of water per day
