Phnom Penh to Bangkok transportation

by mai2

Hi,

I'm a female solo traveler and I plan to do backpacking in Phnom penh on December and then go to Bangkok... Can you help me with the possible options for transportation? by land -bus/ train- is there a direct route or I need to stop somewhere and hop to another bus.train?, plane? how long and how much?

I actually prefer to travel by land to see the view of the country,sceneries and people... stuff like that.. I don't mind long travel time if the trip is comfortable and there are a lot to see on the way but if there is nothing to see then maybe i'll go by plane..

Really need your inputs.. many thanks in advance!!

Re: Phnom Penh to Bangkok transportation

by Michel69

If you do not plan a stop at Angkor (Siem reap), to see the best countryside and landscaping, I would recommend you to take a taxi from Phnom Pemh to Pursat, Kompong Chnnang, Battambang then Poipet pass the border and take a bus to Bangkok.
You can stop in all of this town which all propose a lot of charm.

Travel Tips for Phnom Penh

Benjamin snobbed

by f8stop

Please be aware that some establishments in Phnom Penh don't accept worn-out or old dollar bills (specially big denominations). The $100 we tried to use wasn't even old or wrinkled -- it was just folded and had a crease in the middle but it was still not accepted in King Guesthouse. Mekong Express accepted the bill but took note of its serial number. (for security reasons)

So when having your money changed, try to get new, unfolded bills.

Use A Travel Agency Over Your Hotel For Bookings

by Etoile2B

We decided to use one of the many travel agencies to book our bus tickets to Siem Reap after our airline ticket “confusion” at out hotel’s booking desk. Although the staff at the hotels are more than willing and able to book tickets, secure visas and help with all things travel, we found it a little cheaper to book through one of the local tourist agencies. They were very helpful and friendly and organized our transportation from the hotel to the local bus depot as well as our tickets to Siem Reap cheaper than we were quoted by our hotel.

On a side note: Later in our travels we talked to others about securing visas into Vietnam and they mentioned that the travel agencies were easier and cheaper than our hotel had been. I would recommend using a local travel agency, such as this one, when booking visas, airline and bus tickets, tours, etc.

try something different snack

by picek

It is not only Cambodian popular snack and you can buy it from hawkers in other SEA streets; it looks like a normal boiled egg from outside and when you buy it you get a plate, fresh greens and some condiments (chilli, peppers and salt, and MSG) and fresh lime to eat along. Then you open it and it's almost born chicken inside. And it is hard boiled, so you can also find veinous yolk - well, what hasn't yet been used by the body when chicken was still alive and growing before being boiled.
So, in case you get tempted to eat fresh hard boiled eggs right on the street - you know what you can get. Not all eggs are with big chicken inside, though and actually people love this snack and believe it is good aphrodisiac for men. The taste is quite good, quite different - more gentle- than normal eggs so you shouldn't be turned away by the view.
After you have finished your snack you will of course give back the plate to the hawker who waits around near and looks for potential customers.

Basic Tourists' Packing List

by haydnesque

when going to Pnom Penh, dont bring hard-cased bags or mallets. Its stupid. Even if you're staying at Raffles Hotel! You are not in New York. Just bring a very big handy bag or 18-litter backpack used for camping or mountain climbing.

when roaming around, bring a handy-dandy backpack for where can put things you buy. wear light, cool clothing. Shorts for men, but not really for ladies unless you wouldn't mind the stares. Hiking shoes and sandals.Bring RAINCOAT! Or else you'll find yourself stuck in your hotel. Paracetamol, Clyndamycin, Immodium memory cards! I find it hard to find where to print digital pictures in Pnom Penh (august 2006) although I've seen 1 i forgot the street. condoms. Lol

Following a monk in the street

by extrajoce

One of the charms of SE Asia can be foudn in Phnom Penh in the presence of Buddhist monks walking along in their bright robes. I saw one dash for lunch and followed him a minute in a narrow street. They symbolise the peaceful and respectful nature of SE Asians to me.
