By bus

It is very convenient and inexpensive to get to Phnom Penh from neighboring Asian countries (Thailand, Vietnam, Laos) and from other cities of Cambodia by tourist bus. Tickets for tourist buses are sold everywhere in travel agencies of tourist areas or in hotels.

Phnom Penh Bus Station

There is no single bus station in Phnom Penh, and buses arrive in various places, mainly in the city center. From Phnom Penh, buses of various companies also depart from various places, but by purchasing a ticket from travel agencies, you usually get a transfer from your hotel to the station for free. The minibus will pick you up at the appointed time from the hotel door and take you to the place of departure. Everything is very convenient and perfectly organized.

At land border posts in Cambodia, a visa is issued on arrival without any problems.

We recommend avoiding traveling by night buses through Cambodia due to the high risk of an accident. Also keep in mind that border posts are open from 7:00 to 20:00, and it will not be possible to cross the border at night.

There is another way to get to Phnom Penh from Ho Chi Minh City: You can buy a one-, two- or three-day excursion from Ho Chi Minh City (also these excursions are available from Mui Ne) along the Mekong Delta with a final stop in Phnom Penh. I.e. this route is one-way and does not involve a return to Ho Chi Minh City. Such excursions can be purchased at travel agencies on the street or ordered online. During the tour you will travel by bus, boat, minibus, visit many interesting places and spend the night in hotels. There are even overnight boat tours on the river. In general, there are many options, and the prices are very low. For example, a three-day excursion (including two overnight stays in hotels and breakfast) in 2010 cost $ 84 for two. In addition, it was necessary to spend only on a visa to Cambodia, food and souvenirs. You can read the review of such an excursion here.

From Bangkok to Phnom Penh by bus

According to unconfirmed information, there is a direct (without an overnight stay in Poipet or Siem Reap) tourist bus service from Bangkok to Phnom Penh costing $ 15. Once again, this information is not verified.

To get from Bangkok to Phnom Penh by a proven route, you will first have to get to the border town of Aranyaprathet, cross the border to Poipet, and then take a bus to Phnom Penh and then transfer to Siem Reap or Poipet, from where, in turn, to Phnom Penh.

Phnom Penh can be reached by speedboat from Siem Reap in an average of 6.5 hours and $ 35. The boat departs from Siem Reap at 6:30 , from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap at 7:30. In the dry season, when the river dries up, part of the route along the river can be replaced by a bus ride.

Boats arrive and depart to the pier (Ferry Port) almost in the center of Phnom Penh. The port is located on Sisowath Quay Blvd near 104 Street. See the position of the pier on the map of Phnom Penh).

By train

During the war in Cambodia, the railway connection in the country was almost destroyed, and it is not yet possible to get to Phnom Penh by rail. The Phnom Penh-Kampot road, which was in operation until recently, has now stopped working (in November 2011).

The railway line that previously connected Bangkok and Phnom Penh runs only to the Thai border town of Aranyaprathet. This can be used to get partly by rail.

In 2013, it is planned to launch the Poipet railway connection-Battambang-Phnom Penh.

How to get from Bangkok to Phnom Penh by train+bus

In general, the route will look like this: from Bangkok you need to get to Poipet or Siem Reap, and then from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh. You may have to spend the night in Poipet or Siem Reap, but it's even better to stay in Siem Reap for a day or two to visit Angkor Temple complex (Angkor Wat).

The train departs daily from Bangkok at 05:50, arriving in Aranyaprathet at 11:35. the cost of the trip is strikingly low – 49 baht (money of Thailand, exchange rate)! The second train departs from Bangkok at 13:05 and arrives at 17:35.

Then, from the Aranyaprathet railway station, it will be necessary to get to the border crossing to Cambodia, which can be done on tuk-tuks (60 baht per person) waiting at the station. Next, you need to cross the border crossing (at the border crossing it is possible to obtain a visa on arrival or use an electronic visa to Cambodia). The border crossing is open from 7:00 to 20:00. More information about Aranyaprathet border crossing/Poipet and obtaining a visa there is written here.

Once you are in Poipet, you will be able to get to Phnom Penh by bus or taxi. The bus from the Poipet bus station, according to the schedule, departs only at 8:00, costs $ 25. A taxi to Phnom Penh from the bus station costs $25 per person.

There are other carriers between Poipet and Phnom Penh, for example http://www.ppsoryatransport.com/. Unfortunately, we do not have accurate information about the place of departure of buses of such carriers, but according to some information, their offices are located on the main street of the city (highway No. 5) about 1.2 kilometers from the border crossing, and the buses themselves depart from the Poipet bus station (not to be confused with the tourist bus terminal outside the city, from where they leave for Siem Reap), which is located about 1.5 kilometers from the border (Poipet bus station on the map).

In 2013, it is planned to launch the Poipet-Battambang-Phnom Penh railway connection.
