From Thailand to Siem reap

Border crossing during ground transfer (bus or car) from Thailand to Siem reap, convenient to carry via border crossing Aranyaprathet (Aranyaprathet) - Poipet (Poipet) (border crossing Aranyaprathet/Poipet on the map of Cambodia), which has long had a bad reputation among the travelers because of cases of extortion by officials at the border (for visa and customs control), "the mafia taxi drivers", fraud with visas, as well as many different kinds of swindlers, pickpockets and other riff-raff, "on duty" on both sides of the border. In recent years, the situation there is much better, but still have a chance to encounter "unforeseen expenses". To avoid extortion by border guards, it is best to issue E-Visa to Cambodia in advance. The border crossing operates from 7:00 to 20:00.
Moving tourist bus
Travel agencies on the street can be found in the sale of composite tourist transfer service from Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, Koh Samui, Koh Chang, etc. (see schedule and directions on the photo) to Siem Reap and back. The cost of these trips tempting low, for example, from $ 14 to Bangkok (in August 2012). And you will not have to change the transport path, everything seems to be going for you organized. And do you reach the point, at least in most cases. But instead of the promised 8 hours on the road are almost guaranteed you will go much longer and this is the best of the troubles that can happen to you. You can easily lose somewhere in the road, you may lose your Luggage, you will have to go in the corner of the bus crushed by the bags loaded, you can bring your not there, you have to wait to transfer from bus to bus somewhere under the scorching sun, well you will have to change, at least 4 bus. And all this can happen in one trip. Therefore, it is highly recommended not to use such crossing, and independently with transfers to get to places. One of the companies that engaged in such transportation, is Hang Tep Travel Co. We recommend you avoid travelling by this company like the plague.
Independent transfer to regular buses
Much better and reliable way to get to Siem reap from Bangkok, Pattaya and other cities of Thailand, in our opinion, is moving on a bus. The route is, in General, will look like this: drive to Aranyaprathet --> border crossing in Poipet --> a crossing from Poipet to Siem reap. This route has long been proven and tested by many travellers, and there is nothing complicated.
Drive to Aranyaprathet To Aranyaprathet from Bangkok and Pattaya by bus can be reached in about 4 hours and on average for 200 baht. From Bangkok to Aranyaprathet can be reached from North station Bangkok Mochit, and the Eastern bus terminal, Ekkamai. The most frequently (almost every hour) buses leave from the Northern station. To purchase tickets in advance is not necessary. The bus is from 160 to 200 baht depending on the class (in August of 2012. from the North bus station of the 1st class was worth 223 baht), and a journey time of 4-5 hours.
There is also a bus route from the airport to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi directly to Aranyaprathet. This is the bus No. 390 which departs from the airport bus terminal (Public Transportation Center) and travels to station Rongklua Market almost at the border with Cambodia (border crossing Aranyaprathet-Poipet). Worth the trip by bus No. 174 of 390 baht (currency of Thailand, the exchange rate) and departs at 09:00 and 11:00, but the schedule may change (as of March 2013 bus leaves at 07:40 on weekdays and at 07:40 and 9:30 on weekends). In any case, sending this route is carried out in the first half of the day to be able to take tourists to the border until the moment when the border crossing closes.
In Aravaipaite buses arrive either at the city bus station (bus station on the map) or at the bus station Rongkluea Market (station Rongkluea Market on a map). Preferred is the second option, as Rongkluea Market located at the border, while from the bus station, Aranyaprathet will have to travel about 5 kilometers by tuk-tuk for 60 baht. From Rongkluea Market to the border crossing can be reached on foot (800 metres) or by tuk-tuk for 20 baht per person. Hiking the route and position Rongkluea Market can be seen on the map.
The border crossing at Poipet. So whichever station you arrive, your task will be to get to the border crossing in one piece. Tuk-tuks are likely to take you to the office, where you will try to spin on the "left" visa. How to avoid it written here.
After passing all the border and customs formalities, after leaving the border crossing you will be on the main street in Poipet, and no bus station.
A crossing from Poipet to Siem reap. Some do not fit in any logic quirk tourist bus terminal in Poipet (do not confuse this place with avtobusnoe station Poipet) was built in already at 12 kilometers from the border crossing in the middle of desert fields (tourist bus terminal in Poipet on the map). The station is huge and empty - it's another fad. In order to reach it, you need to use the free Shuttle bus that runs continuously between the checkpoint and the terminal. Terminal occupancy minivans depart to Siem reap for $ 10 per person (negotiable) with delivery to the hotel in Siem reap, but delivery to the hotel should specify when landing, otherwise the driver about it is deliberately forgotten and will drop you on the outskirts of the city. Delivery to hotels in the city can be done with a transfer on tuk-tuks. From the bus station, you can also go by taxi for $ 48 per car for four or $ 12 per person via cash.
Since the terminal bus station (see the timetable on the photo), including in Siem reap for $ 9, but the special sense in such poscce no, because the cost is less than the van to the hotel just for 1 dollar.
But try not to hurry once you leave the border crossing immediately go to the tourist bus terminal in Poipet. More optimal would be to find a taxi for $ 40 and even cheaper (need to bargain) right at the entrance to the border crossing, while you can find fellow travelers to share the cost (this can make even the driver will only need to wait a bit). Here, however, is the place to be wiring, when the alleged driver under various pretexts sends you to the free Shuttle bus to the bus station (allegedly the car there), and there you just put in a mini-van for $ 10 per person.
By train from Bangkok
From Bangkok station Hualamphong to Arrayprint twice a day the train (like our s-Bahn), a fare which costs only 48 baht. The first train leaves at 05:55 and arrives in Aranyaprathet at 11:35; the second train leaves at 13:05 and arrives at 17:35. The first is the preferred train, because on the second you can not manage to get to the border crossing, especially if you are travelling for the first time and have to spend the night in Aranyaprathet. From the railway station at Aranyaprathet to the border crossing easily reached by tuk-tuk or taxi.
