Are there Viettel SIM cards for sale in Siem Reap?

Hello, this summer (end of June) I will be in Siem Reap for about 4 days. From there I will be in Vietnam for about a month. From what I understand the Vietnamese cell phone carrier Viettel does not have roaming charges in Cambodia. When I am in Siem Reap that is the only time I will be in Cambodia. Is there any way I can get a SIM from Viettel when I am in Siem Reap, from the airport or the city itself? It would make it easier for me in the long run for my trip. If not, which is the best SIM card to get for 4 days in Siem Reap, preferably from the airport? I don't have much of a budget for SIM cards as my understanding is they're pretty cheap in SE Asia. Thanks

I don't think you will be able to get Viettel SIM in Cambodia, in spite of that Cambodian metfone is owned by Viettel.When I bought my metfone card in the metfone Kampot branch, I asked whether I could use my Viettel card

in Cambodia, they said no.

If it is true that there are no roaming charges for Viettel, I won't have to keep buying metfone SIMs, that expire after 2 months of inactivity,every 3 months I come to Cambodia for my Vietnamese visa.

I was still able to get a 3G metfone for 1 $ last week , although the 4G SIMs are 4 $ now.

Husband and I are currently in Siem Reap and bought a Metfone SIM for USD5 but you can get cheaper ones. Had Viettel in Vietnam but does not work here. Viettel cost us around USD10
