Traveling Around Cambodia

Bringing you the very best in Cambodia travel news from Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.

Travel in Cambodia is an adventure and generally an unforgettable experience. There is so much out there from the temples at Angkor in Siem Reap, the beaches and beautiful islands that lay off the coast of Sihanoukville not to mention the Hill Station at Bokor national park in Kampot. With something to explore in nearly all of the Country’s 24 provinces the only question left is how to get there.

Sure if you are feeling intrepid you can always drive yourself in your own car or on your own motorbike but if you would rather leave the strain of driving in the Kingdom to somebody more experienced then the various bus companies that operate here would be the most natural choice.

Here we break it down for you and give you the Your Cambodia snap shot to getting around the Kingdom.

 

GIANT IBIS.

The Your Cambodia bus company of choice, they currently serving routes to Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Sihanoukville, Kampot, Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok with some night routes available. Giant Ibis buses are probably the most reliable of all services. Buses are always clean and they offer a pick-up service from any participating hotels and guesthouses.

They ensure a two driver policy on long trips, offer wifi on some services and even provide complimentary water and pastry courtesy of the blue pumpkin bakery. Now that is what we call a service.

Their Phnom Penh office is located by the night market just off Sisowath Quay.

MEKONG EXPRESS.

Commencing operations back in 2002 Mekong Express has enjoyed a fairly solid reputation in Cambodia. Offering both bus and VIP van services with wifi and complimentary snacks the Mekong Express currently services Siem Reap, Phnom Penh, Poi Pet, Sihanoukville, Ho Chi Minh City, Battambang, Bangkok and Banteay Meanchey.

Their main office is located in Russey Keo not far north of Phnom Penh’s Japanese bridge.

SORYA BUS COMPANY.

For those of us fortunate enough to have nearly a decade or more of living in Cambodia under our belts we can nostalgically look back at the days when we would use the Sorya bus company. In Cambodia you generally get what you pay for and this is certainly the case when it comes to Sorya.

Advantages are that they service almost every province in the country and their main office / bus terminal is conveniently located just off of central market in Phnom Penh.

We would advise that you actually go directly to the office to book your ticket in person but you will be pleased with their budget prices we are sure.

TRAINS IN CAMBODIA

This is one experience high on the Your Cambodia teams to do list. You can expect a video on train journeys very soon but for now you’ll have to make do with our snap shot.

Currently the small railway network is only accessible for passengers on weekends and public holidays with Takeo, Kampot & Sihanoukville the current destinations. To be honest we feel it’s more the experience of taking the train through the countryside than the destination that is the real experience.    

There has long been talk of re-opening the line to Battambang and other expanded lines through to Vietnam but this has yet to show any real substance.
